Orange County, Eating Disorder Recovery Groups

Southern California is
renown for its warm weather, gorgeous beaches and access to everything the from
Farmers Markets to mountain snow. One thing hidden from the tourists eye is the
strong community of eating disorder survivors. Every day of the week there is a
meeting in Orange County filled with women who have lived through a horrific
eating disorder
and are willing to share their experience, strength and hope
with those who are looking for relief from this disease themselves.
This community of women is so large,
tight knit and welcoming that many past clients have decided to move to Orange County
after exiting treatment, simply because there is no other eating disorder
recovery community
quite like the one here in Orange
 Therefore we have compiled a list of
some of our favorite eating disorder recovery meeting in Orange County
to share with you. Before we do there are a few things you should know:


All meetings are FREE. You can donate a
few dollars if you like, but there are no dues for attending.

2.)  All meetings are anonymous. All meeting
attendees know that what is said in the meeting, stays in the meeting.

Give it a chance, all meetings are
different. Attend a few before you decide that recovery meetings are/aren’t for
you. Many meetings focus on different aspects of the disease. i.e. Anorexia.
Give each meeting a chance even if you don’t relate at first.
