CHICAGO, Feb. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The road to lifelong recovery is a challenge for those with eating disorders, which makes getting started on the healing path even more of a necessity. That's why Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center will "Rejoice in Recovery" during the week of February 20-26, nationally known as NEDAwareness Week. Timberline Knolls' mission is to educate the public on eating disorders and body image issues while reducing the stigma surrounding eating disorders and improving access to treatment.
