Review from Guidestar
September 30, 2013

My 24 year old granddaughter has Anorexia, a severe mental illness. I write this review with much gratitude to Janice and Debra, my mentors in navigating this deadly disease. When I desperately needed help and knowledge about Anorexia, i joined Debra's support group for parents and other concerned people. Listening to each person's experience with Anorexia, i learned how s/he was coping with it within her/his family. In addition, speakers with expertise in the field of eating disorders, including Dr Pamela Carlton, offered "solutions" to manage this disease, a disease that lasts for a lifetime.

After 3 hospitalizations, my granddaughter finally consented to go into residential care. Now finishing her third month, she, seemingly, is handling the stresses that are the catalyst for her eating disorder.

Whenever I need an emotional boost, more knowledge or hope, I return to my place in Debra's circle to be re-charged. I love Debra's hug too!

Unfortunately, Medi-Cal's coverage for treating those suffering from an eating disorder is essentially non existent. I was desperate to find the proper treatment for my client, who was struggling with her anorexia. My client's mother was unable to afford the costly fees of outpatient/in patient treatment programs and my client's weight was getting dangerously low. Thankfully, I found the Eating Disorder Resource Center and was put in contact with Janice Bremis. The EDRC worked tirelessly to provide me with resources and contacts that would provide my client with the care that she needs. Thanks to the EDRC my client is in the process of entering a treatment program at Stanford that is specifically designed to treat eating disorders in adolescents. Thank you for providing a resource that serves all clients struggling with eating disorders regardless of their level of income.

Sincerely,

Diana Lohr
