Map and Directions

One of three people struggling with substance abuse also reports eating pathology, and up to half of all individuals struggling with eating disorders meet criteria for substance abuse.  While the research suggests improved outcomes when eating disorders and substance abuse are treated concurrently, remarkably few researchers and therapists in either field are fully trained to address both disorders.  Our 3rd annual conference will bring together substance use clinicians and eating disorder clinicians so that we can learn, from each other and a panel of experts, how to best help the millions of individuals struggling with these co-occurring disorders.  The conference offers a series of practical presentations, seminars and experiential training workshops, preparing clinicians with tools they can immediately apply in their practices.  Join us in San Diego—to learn, to network, to grow.
