Contrary to what many might think, eating disorders are not created by choice, and they are not a passing teenage phase. Eating disorders occur in both sexes, all age groups, and across a wide variety of races and ethnic backgrounds. Eating disorders are severe and can be fatal, however they are treatable. This book gives a comprehensive look at recovery, and the essential steps to the recovery process. We are proud to share this book with our readers and library patrons.
