Eating disorders are tragically common affecting 30 million Americans in their lifetimes yet treatment options remain scarce. Rock Recovery bridges a critical gap in care, focusing on individuals who need more than a weekly session with a therapist, but less than full-time treatment. Clients go about their daily lives while accessing affordable outpatient programs group therapy, group meals and nutrition counseling, mentoring, yoga classes, and optional faith-based activities. Together they make up an invaluable community network where clients feel understood and supported on their journey toward better health. Outreach programs educate and empower individuals to find recovery for themselves or for their loved ones, increasing understanding of disordered eating while reducing the stigma surrounding it and other mental health issues. The waiting list for treatment is long; you can help Rock Recovery grow.

COVID-19 Update: Since March, Rock Recovery has experienced a 420% increase in requests for services. In response, it hired an additional full-time Program Manager enabling Rock Recovery to reach 20 more clients each week through its HIPAA-compliant virtual services. The addition of two new virtual clinical programs and publication of a comprehensive COVID-19 support guide with free and affordable resources have also been critical to meet the increased need.
