When a person is struggling with an eating disorder, relationships with family and friends oftentimes become strained.

“Since we know support is critical during treatment and recovery, we work to bring people back together,” says Brad E. R. Smith, MD, psychiatrist, medical director for Rogers' Oconomowoc campus and Eating Disorder Recovery.
