Eating Disorder Treatment Centers and Therapists
Finding the right therapist is crucial in recovery since you cannot recover on your own or just by having friends and family help you, especially if they have no training in Eating Disorders therapy. A therapist should be professional but casual enough that you or someone you know that has an eating disorder can feel comfortable in their prescence. It usually helps if the therapist has had a past experience with an eating disorder, so they understand more and don't merely regurgitate whatever they have been fed about EDs from textbooks.
Therapists can also be expensive but there are many that work on a sliding scale basis. That means they charge based on your income and also take into consideration whether or not you have insurance that will cover eating disorders therapy. Another lower-cost method of obtaining help is by going to group therapy.
Note: At this point in time, I am only listing Eating Disorder Organizations. I cannot list individual states and providence treatment centers, as there are so many.

"Most treatment programs utilize a reward and punishment system. We do not utilize such systems because they are ineffective. Individuals with eating disorders have spent enough time punishing themselves already. Rader Programs' approach is centered on the individual. All aspects of the individual's life are explored and addressed in a supportive environment. We do not concentrate solely on the symptoms of the eating disorder or focus on dieting. Instead individual, family, and group counseling, as well as nutritional guidance, exercise training, and educational sessions are all combined to create the path toward recovery."
Call Rader or visit their web page from the link above for more information on treatment! :)
