The current research sought to examine the experiences of people with EDs by asking what their personal experiences of treatment and recovery were like and what helped or hindered them. This research was conducted across two studies comprised of an online focus group (OFG) and individual interviews. The analysis of these results of both studies indicated that the elements of the recovery model were applicable to ED treatment, that treatment experiences impacted recovery outcome overall, and that interpersonal relationships had an effect on recovery.
