Over 22 years ago, The Alliance recognized the amount of time lost and possible harm created when individuals are recommended treatment options not appropriate for their needs. To make the process more effective, we created the nation’s most robust, comprehensive, and inclusive referral database, findEDhelp. In an effort to further remove barriers to care, there is not a charge for providers to be listed in the database.

Our national, interactive database includes eating disorder treatment options at all levels of care. You can search based on specific criteria including zip code, populations treated, accepted insurance plans, treatment modalities, and levels of care offered. Further customization is even available to include what comorbid diagnoses can be treated; number of patients in programming; nutritional philosophies; and number of individual sessions offered each week.
