You never imagined you’d be in this fight, and it’s overwhelming. For every family, it’s extremely challenging to know how to communicate about your loved one’s problem. Parents commonly blame themselves, or, worse – each other. Siblings often suffer feelings of neglect, causing them to act out. It’s not just the person with the eating disorder who needs support, it’s the whole family.
The ironic truth is that eating disorders can wreck the very family dynamics your loved one needs most for recovery. Eating disorders like anorexia, bulimia and binge eating thrive on isolation and loneliness. It’s crucial that families get the right help to create an environment of support, connection and openness. When families have the tools to participate constructively in the process, patients have more success while in the program, and recovery is more sustainable for the whole family through the transition back to home.
