Recovery Record is an eating disorder recovery app that can be downloaded on both iPhone and Android devices. Recovery Record takes industry best practice for eating disorder treatment and delivers it on mobile devices. It replaces pen-and-paper therapy homework with a mobile application, with both a client and clinician version, so logged information can be shared with professionals if desired.

Recovery & Relapse

Recovery from an eating disorder can take months, even years. Slips, backslides, and relapse tend to be the rule, rather than the exception. Re-learning normal eating habits and coping skills can take a long period of time and often requires lots of support from professionals, friends, and family. Moving forward is key, however slow it might be.Read more >
