What's wrong with this picture?

What is missing here?

Probably: your treatment provider!**

The F.E.A.S.T. Treatment Provider list (now available in map form) is open to all eating disorder specialists and clinics who agree with F.E.A.S.T.'s principles.

Why another list? Unfortunately, parents seeking treatment for a loved one usually choose providers from a list based on proximity, or marketing dollars. Some lists are paid advertisements, and the more a provider has to spend the higher their placement on the list.

I think proximity and marketing budgets are a poor indicator of a provider's ability to help our families. While much of what a clinician offers patients defies description, there are some helpful clues. Not blaming parents or patients for the illness, and agreeing this is a biologically based illness is a good one. A commitment to evidence based practice is another.
The F.E.A.S.T. list needs parents to help. We need you to ask your treatment providers to go to this page: HERE and fill out their information for inclusion on the list. Help other parents find the family-friendly, progressive, and evidence-based care you value.

Too shy or busy? Send us their contact information (form at the bottom).

With your help, we can help families AND let the treatment world what is important to families!

**If you live in the UK or other on national health system, of course, your provider won't be on the list: because it's 'pot luck' on providers. Which is at least as horrible as the $300us/hour or $1Kus+/day we get to choose!
