I came to The Beacon feeling defeated and hopeless that my eating disorder would never be put to rest. I was a closet binge eater who used to exercise to mask my food addiction. As a registered dietician, I knew how to ‘trick the system’ to keep my weight at bay, all the while I continued to suffer silently from this dreadful disease. When I was introduced to The Beacon, I knew that there would be a light at the end of the tunnel. The therapists are kind, forgiving and never show judgment, and the program here is much more than a diet plan or a therapy session. This is a full mind-body approach where you learn skills on how to react, respond, and, most importantly, repair. The combination of group classes and individual therapy sessions in like a one-two punch for lasting recovery. The Beacon is and has become a part of me that I will never give up.
