Hey there! We’re still hammering away at our “Bold Resources” page and check out what we found!
Did you know that in the U.S. (https://www.nationaleatingdisorders.org/get-facts-eating-disorders), 20 million women and 10 million men will experience an eating disorder, and almost half (https://www.nationaleatingdisorders.org/substance-abuse-and-eating-disorders)of them will also abuse drugs and alcohol. Unfortunately, despite this comorbidity, many people who struggle with these illnesses will not receive the treatment they need.
At RecoveryPride.org, they break down the stigmas that often prevent people from getting the help they desperately need by providing resources and other information to help educate the public. One specific area in which we’re hoping to raise awareness is regarding the connection between eating disorders and substance abuse.
