When & Where
Project HEAL SoCal & Reasons Eating Disorder Center
Project HEAL is a 501c3 non-profit organization that raises money for people with eating disorders who cannot afford treatment, promotes healthy body image and self-esteem, and inspires everyone that full recovery from an eating disorder is possible.
Eating disorders have one of the highest mortality rates of all mental illnesses, and require intense treatment, which can cost upwards of $30,000 per month, yet insurance companies often refuse to cover these costs and most people cannot afford to pay out of pocket. The cofounders of Project HEAL met in recovery from anorexia when they were just 15 years old. In our 7 years in existence, we have raised over $600,000, sent 27 people to treatment, and opened over 40 chapters across the United States, Canada, and Australia. Project HEAL has been featured in People Magazine, The Huffington Post, Teen Vogue, and many other publications.
Reasons EDC, located in Rosemead, California (just outside of Los Angeles), offers eating disorder treatment programs for males and females, adolescents and adults who suffer from Anorexia, Bulimia, and related forms of disordered eating. We offer inpatient, residential, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient programs for the treatment of eating disorders.
While rooted firmly in the medical model of eating disorder treatment, our goal is to create a culture of deep healing that nurtures the integration of body and mind through the daily practice and continual reinforcing of the balancing ideas of Doing and Being
