While treatment at Carolina House can be life-changing, we realize that it’s only part of our clients’ paths to better health. We support the long-term success of each person who completes our programming by providing them with access to the resources they need to stay motivated and continue achieving success after treatment.
We believe that support groups can be an essential component of every person’s aftercare plan because they offer a safe space for individuals to gain perspective and enhance their communication skills. Sessions also provide a valuable opportunity for individuals to build meaningful relationships with people who understand what they’re going through.
At Carolina House, we are proud to partner with the National Alliance for Eating Disorders (The Alliance) to offer our clients free, online eating disorder support groups on a weekly basis. We encourage graduates of our programs to participate in these therapist-led sessions so that they can broaden their support networks and maintain control of their symptoms. With peer support, you can realize that you’re not alone on your lifelong journey to improved wellness.
