About Rock Recovery:

More than 30 million Americans will battle an eating disorder at some point in their lifetime, and only 1 in 10 get treatment due to affordability, accessibility and stigma. Rock Recovery was founded to bridge gaps in treatment and understanding of disordered eating so that those numbers will change. Based on the belief that true freedom from disordered eating is possible, Rock Recovery has been working tirelessly since 2009 so that more men, women and children will be spared the devastating effects of the disease. Rock Recovery has been serving the Washington, DC community and beyond for the past seven years and has provided affordable outpatient treatment to more than 75 clients and community empowerment programs to 10,000 individuals.
