At Rogers, we recognize many family members and close friends wonder how to respond to their loved one during treatment for an eating disorder. As an adjunct to the family therapy sessions, this monthly program gives families and friends an opportunity to understand how these complex illnesses affect them and receive support from other families.
Each day-long program is designed to help people who are a key part of the patient’s support system understand how they can help patients as they practice alternative coping skills and better responses to triggers and stress. At each program, family and friends get to interact with members of the treatment team, ask questions and participate in a variety of presentations and activities.
If you are interested in participating in the program, contact your loved one’s social worker or therapist.
Offered the third Friday of every month, the program is held at the Multipurpose Center on the Rogers Memorial Hospital–Oconomowoc main campus from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
