I've joined these forums because both of my parents are recovering addicts (they luckily both have been sober for awhile), however, I often would go to 12 step meetings because they actually helped me in dealing with an eating disorder. While I was in treatment, I would attend the meetings every week, and I actually noticed that A LOT of people that were there were dealing with the same thing! A lot of the people I met had talked about how they started using to support their eating disorder in order to stay thin. They needed to receive treatment for both issues in order to defeat the underlying cause. Has anyone been in treatment for both issues?
