For Families

It is difficult to witness a loved one struggle with an eating disorder, and it is often a relief when they enter treatment. However, the process of supporting them throughout admission, treatment and recovery can be challenging. At Walden, our staff understands the burdens families face while their loved one fights to recover, and we are here for you every step of the way.

To help you as you begin this journey, we have put together a list of commonly asked questions that families have about the treatment experience at Walden. We have also created a page of testimonials from other families just like yours that have gone through our programs. We hope the testimonials will bring you some reassurance as you begin this process. If you still have questions after visiting these pages, please call our admissions staff at 781-647-6727.
