Eating Disorder Recovery in Seattle, Washington

When preparing our clients to transition from our step down facility, Patrice House back to their homes we help them carve out a recovery maintenance plan. One of the resources we suggest our clients reach out to is Overeaters Anonymous (OA.) OA is a fantastic, long standing, reputable support group for various eating disorders (including anorexia, bulimia and compulsive over eating.) Meetings in OA vary from area to area, but the advantage of a support group in Overeaters Anonymous is the focus the groups have on the physical, mental and spiritual restoration of its members. As well as the flexibility to create a group that best serves the needs of it’s members. For instance, if a group comes together and would like to make a 2 hour meeting a 1 hour meeting to better serve it’s population it can do that. As well, if a meeting has a predominant amount of Anorexics and Bulimics it can also change the meeting to best serve that population.  Of course all changes to meeting formats must be abiding by the the 12 traditions of OA.

Currently, we have quite a few clients who are from the Seattle area and will soon be retuning home. If you live in the Seattle, WA area there is a variety of meeting available to you:
