Recovery from an eating disorder is possible. With willingness and specialised treatment you or your loved one can gain freedom from an eating disorder.
Our treatment programs are designed to provide intensive outpatient treatment for individuals on their journey to recovery.
The programs were developed by The Butterfly Foundation with the goal of demonstrating the effectiveness of intensive outpatient programs for individuals with eating disorders, so we can better advocate for an increase in access to appropriate care through Medicare and/or health insurance-supported programs for people across Australia.
Eating disorder treatment programs and health professionals specialising in eating disorder treatment are available in other parts of Australia. To find a service near you, call or email our National Helpline.
If you are struggling to meet the costs of treatment and are motivated to recover then through the generous support of Sportsgirl, you can apply for Financial Assistance for Recovery to help pay for psychotherapy, dietetics and other associated treatment costs.
