The brilliance and beauty of recovery comes with hard work and dedication. Support from all angles and from various people is undoubtedly a part of this incredible journey. But what about the support YOU give yourself? That, above all else, will steer you clear of a life dictated by your eating disorder. 

Join us for our 3rd annual Site Reunion as we celebrate the most essential elements for you and your recovery - courage, confidence, self-acceptance and self-care. Let's  come together and explore the importance of these four pillars while connecting with each other and creating a collective unit of strength!
