Do you feel depressed or anxious, struggle with shyness or social anxiety, criticize yourself and demand perfection, or suffer from other emotional or behavioral problems? Are food and body image your answer to these problems? Do you alternate between extreme control over food, and then feel out-of control with food? If you answered yes to any of these questions, this eating disorder treatment program is for you!
