Why Take an Eating Disorder Test?

Understanding and acknowledging the signs of an eating disorder is the first step toward seeking help. By taking an eating disorder assessment, individuals can gain insights into their behaviors and determine if they align with common symptoms of eating disorders. This can be a valuable tool in deciding the next steps in one’s recovery journey.

Do I Have an Eating Disorder?

It’s a question many ask themselves when they notice patterns in their eating habits that cause distress or concern. The Emily Program’s quiz is structured to help answer this very question. By responding honestly to the questions, individuals can gauge the severity of their symptoms and understand if they might benefit from professional intervention.
