Caring for You in Recovery
Our Alumni and Family Liaison Team believes in you and your capabilities. We are here to provide you with the necessary skills and tools to continue your recovery journey. While recovery is not always linear, we believe in the ability to progress towards a lasting recovery. Additionally, we work to provide your family, friends and caregivers with supportive tools ranging from education and webinars, to articles and support groups: specifically designed for support systems of loved ones in treatment.

Mental Health Support Groups
Pathlight offers free, trained facilitator-led, support groups for those struggling with anxiety, trauma, OCD and mood disorders. Pathlight also offers some support groups for families and community members. These support groups provide support, resources and education on treatment and recovery.
Events for Alumni
Having that validation 'You've changed as a person' from your treatment team was so cool to receive.
A select group of Pathlight alumni and family members have been invited to serve on our Recovery Ambassador Council. Our Council members have come forward to share their personal recovery story as a way to help destigmatize and normalize eating disorders and mental health issues. These passionate members speak from the heart and inspire hope for full recovery.
Members of the Recovery Ambassador Council are available for speaking opportunities in education settings and to various audiences.*
In Loving Memory
The ERC Pathlight family honors former RAC member, Andy. We lost Andy due to an unexpected medical emergency.
Andy was a fantastic artist, a dedicated family man, thoughtful human, and genuine and gentle soul. He always had a wisdom about him, keeping life in perspective.
Andy was passionate about raising awareness for eating disorder and mental health treatment. He embraced his recovery journey and enjoyed connecting with others.
We remember Andy with love.
Say It Brave
Say It Brave is an inclusive community dedicated to fostering connection, providing free resources, and ending mental health stigma. We believe that sharing your truth in a safe space, or “Saying It Brave” is essential to healing.
