Who is the ARFID Adult Support Group For?

The group is open to adults with ARFID anywhere in California, ages 18 and up.

We are seeing more and more need for treatment for Avoidant Restrictive Intake Disorder (ARFID). We have noticed that adults with ARFID have struggled with it for many years without treatment–or in many cases–without a diagnosis.

The patients we see with ARFID are usually relieved to find a treatment that is tailored to them. They report not knowing other people with ARFID and not having people in their lives who understand what it is like to live with ARFID. They report feeling like they don’t fit in in other eating disorder recovery and support spaces. It is for this reason, that Dr. Muhlheim started this support group in 2021.

So, here we have it, a space just for adults with ARFID. Come for support and education.
