The Appetite Episode #72:

Full Recovery from an Eating Disorder: Is it Possible?

What’s the difference between being “in recovery” versus being “recovered” from an eating disorder? And is full recovery possible? At Opal, we believe that YES—it definitely is! Today Opal Co-Founders Dr. Lexi Giblin, PhD, CEDS, Kara Bazzi, LMFT, CEDS, and Julie Church, RDN, CEDRD-S, CD are talking with host Carter Umhau, LMHC about what the process of recovery looks like, why it’s different than the traditional recovery model (which is based off of substance use addiction), and how to know you’ve arrived at the end of your recovery journey.
