Help is available. If you are upset or embarrassed about your binge eating, you are not alone. Even though BED is the most common eating disorder, most people find it extremely difficult to talk about. However, healthcare professionals are used to being asked for referrals. If you try to mention your concerns to your provider and you don’t feel heard, please don’t be afraid to ask for a referral to someone who specializes in binge eating disorder. Remember, if you don’t bring your concerns up, you may never get the help you need.

Please feel free to reach out with questions to 919-636-5240 or you can chat online, and write us an email. CPCH is here to help you in your recovery to optimal health.
