One of the most important and hardest steps in recovery is generally this first hurdle . . . Reaching out to find help.
Here is what you can expect when you reach out to A Place of Healing.
A Place of Healing is an Eating Disorder Resource Center located at 509 East Watauga Avenue in Johnson City, TN.
At the Resource Center during regular hours of operation (Tuesdays from 3:00-5:00 pm and Thursdays from 5:00-7:00 pm), you will be greeted by a volunteer who will give you a folder with a list of local referrals, a pamphlet about eating disorders, and a list of helpful links (such as National Eating Disorder Association) that can get you started along your journey to recovery.
A Place Of Healing Eating Disorder Resource Center is located in the front-room of a renovated house used for multiple businesses.
You will be shown around the Resource Center
The resource center offers an extended list of professional referrals from other surrounding areas along with more pamphlets and information about eating disorders. You can flip through the referral list and jot down numbers. If you have any questions, the volunteer will be happy to assist.
Those looking for information on eating disorders for a friend or family member can find information at the center, too. The volunteer will point you to the Lending Library and explain how it works. You are more than welcome to take a book with you and return it whenever you, your friend, or family member is finished reading it.
Once you have explored the Resource Center, you will have crossed the first hurdle in your recovery.
You will find the information and support at A Place Of Healing to be very valuable along your road to recovery.
If you are looking for another way to be involved and gather with others who are along the same journey as you or your loved one, you can drop in on the weekly Support Group meeting on Thursdays at 7:00 pm.
If you can’t make the resource center hours, you can always fill out the form below, or e-mail Laryn@healingtn.org to set up a meeting time that works with your schedule.
