The Power of a Support Group in Recovery

Compulsive Overeating and the symptoms associated with it, can bring unfathomable shame, guilt, and despair to the man or women struggling.  It's no wonder, with these types of emotions, that many individuals suffering with an eating disorder do not seek out help or the appropriate treatment they need.  Eating disorders, such as compulsive overeating, are isolating diseases, often removing a person from their families, friends, and social life.

If you are a loved one has been struggling with an eating disorder, you may want to consider a support group as a place to start the process of recovery.  Though the idea of seeking treatment can be intimidating and overwhelming, joining with other individuals on a regular basis who may share similar experiences can be inspiring, encouraging, and strengthening.  Whether joining a group such as Over-Eaters Anonymous or finding a local support group through a church or treatment center, getting plugged in to a support system can be instrumental in breaking the bonds of an eating disorder.
