The Victorian knows that eating disorders are a “family disease.” Meaning there are systems within the family unit that trigger eating disorder behaviors. During treatment we offer our clients and their family members time to process past traumas and take a look at their family system together in a program called, Family Week. Realizing how much our families are eager for support and healing for not only their loved one, but themselves also, we have established, Family Group.


In Family Group we will discuss the psychology of eating disorders and explore tools for you to aid in your loved one's recovery, as well as stressing the importance of your own self-care during this difficult journey. Group is open to family members, friends, and spouses/significant others. The group launches: October 22, 2012. Going forward it will meet every:

Monday, 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm “Fishbowl” 3103 Villa Way  Newport Beach, CA 92663 *Corner of Villa Way & 31st Street.  Office faces Villa Pilates.   Questions: Contact: Allyssa James (949) 680 - 9475
