Support Groups

Offering two types of support groups for individuals and caregivers.

Groups are currently paused due to COVID-19

The Eating Disorder Support Group was started because the amount of support and resources for those struggling with eating disorders is limited.  We, as an organization, desire to be a place for individuals to come to ask questions, share experiences in a recovery focused manner, and be a safe place to connect with others.  This is not intended to be a therapy group, and we strongly encourage you to discuss how attending this group might affect your recovery process with your current treatment team. The group may include some educational topics along the way, and is led by professionals who work with individuals with eating disorders.  

Recovery Focused Group*: Available to those current struggling with disordered eating concerns. 

Meetings are every Tuesday from 6:00 pm until 7:15 pm at Methodist West Hospital, 1660 60th St., West Des Moines, Iowa 50266, in Conference rooms 1 & 2 (lower level).  

 

Coffee Connection Caregiver Support Group*:

Available to parents, caregivers, and supportive individuals that are impacted by an eating disorder. Ask questions, share your experiences, and get support by attending the Coffee Connections support group. 

*Please note this group is not a therapy group or intended to be therapeutic in nature. This group is a place where you may find others who are on a similar journey.

Additional groups may be available in the future. We are exploring options for virtual offerings to reach all Iowans outside of the metro area.
