At the Laureate Eating Disorders Program we understand that eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia and binge eating not only affect the disordered individual, but also the person's relationships with others. Those who care the most are often those most affected.
Oftentimes, relationships with family members and friends are severely damaged as a result of the eating disorder. Communication within the family is often strained and sometimes non-existent. Feelings of anger, fear, sadness, shame, guilt and abandonment run rampant in the affected family. Family and friends are often concerned, but do not know what to do.
If you suspect a friend or loved one has an eating disorder, help them get in touch with the professionals at the Laureate Eating Disorders Program.
