Family plays an integral role in the recovery from an eating disorder as it is a deadly disease that keeps a tight hold on its victim. The fight against eating disorders is a long and difficult fight that can span well over decades and involves the entire family. The difference between addiction recovery and recovery from an eating disorder are two entirely different things and the family dynamic during recovery is different. Where one teaches you distance and a firm stance the other preaches the importance of family and the support that must be shown regardless of personal feelings.
