A Joyful Journey...

Join Doris Smeltzer, critically acclaimed author/educator, as she muses on topics from eating disorders to the mysteries of life. Often "Featured" are select, astute observations made by Andrea during her all too brief 19-year life…it is she who taught us: the joy IS in the journey!

NOT ONE MORE life is lost...
A weekend (starting TODAY) built on what the Alliance does:
Help. Support. Recovery.
Friday February 26, 2021 to Sunday February 28, 2021


Join this national movement as we ensure that NOT ONE MORE life is lost, NOT ONE MORE child is taken, and NOT ONE MORE precious moment is destroyed by eating disorders. Over this three-day weekend, help us continue to raise awareness and offer direct support to individuals and families across the country. Proceeds from the NOT ONE MORE Weekend will directly fund their free, weekly, therapist-led, virtual eating disorder support groups!
The #NOTONEMORE Weekend:

Day 1: DAY OF HELP - Friday February 26
It's okay to ask for help! We encourage individuals experiencing eating disorders and their loved ones to reach out via our findEDhelp app/website and/or our helpline. Our licensed therapists can help connect you to all levels of specialized eating disorder care.

Day 2: DAY OF SUPPORT - February 27
Join us for an entire day, round the clock, of free, therapist-led, virtual support groups for individuals! We will be facilitating groups every hour from 8 AM EST until Midnight! Open to individuals and loved ones 18+ around the globe.

Day 3: DAY OF RECOVERY - February 28
Join us as we celebrate living your life beyond your eating disorder. Help us raise awareness, advocate for change, and celebrate recovery. Don't miss out on our inaugural Rally for Recovery at 6pm EST!
