Request a Treatment Referral

ANAD provides referrals via email to professional eating disorder treatment providers within the U.S. This is a peer-led service, meaning our referrals are not made by clinicians or mental health professionals.

Online requests are currently paused while we work to meet demand. To look for ED providers on your own, consider visiting:

We’ve also put together a list of resources and tips for finding providers, available here. For help finding treatment, referral requests are available through the ANAD helpline.

Your support makes a difference.

ANAD is a donation-based recovery community. We believe eating disorder support should be affordable and accessible to all. To continue offering our services for free to those who need it, we rely on donations from those who can afford them. Please consider supporting our mission.
