Virtual Services:

Rock Recovery believes that complete freedom from eating disorders is possible, and that for many, faith is the foundation for freedom. We also offer nationwide, virtual faith-based support groups for deep healing and restoration. Our faith-based support groups are led from a Christian perspective, but we welcome people from all spiritual backgrounds and beliefs to join these groups. 

Our current faith recovery services include: 

In addition to direct therapy and support services, Rock Recovery provides educational workshops and trainings to decrease mental health stigma across the community, connect those in need to life-saving resources, and educate community members on how to get help for themselves or loved ones. 

Impact Statement

Rock Recovery is currently committed to improving mental health equity, and providing affordable outpatient treatment and supportive community resources to a minimum of 70 clients and their families across the DMV each week through our varying clinical recovery programs and therapy services. Additionally, Rock Recovery is committed to serving a minimum of 1,000 additional individuals and families annually in the Greater DC region and beyond through our community empowerment programs and support groups. 

Of recent graduates amongst all Rock Recovery programs from the last two years, 93% of clients said their program had a positive impact on their recovery, 93% said Rock Recovery helped them to stay engaged in daily life and pursue recovery simultaneously, and 95% stated that their quality of life significantly improved as a result of our program offerings. 

Our programs uniquely provide direct therapy services and allow clients and families to access a supportive of community of others who understand what they are going through. One of our teen program graduates shared this, “Rock Recovery allowed me to relate to other people. I felt acknowledged and heard and [Rock Recovery’s group] brought me one step closer to freedom and myself.”

How are charitable dollars spent? Where does my donation go?

At Rock Recovery, we believe that freedom from eating disorders is possible. We work to bridge gaps that keep people from the treatment they need and deserve, such as cost. Thanks to our generous community, we connected more than 200 individuals to life-saving treatment and support in 2023 through our virtual and in-person clinical programs and support groups, with thousands more receiving educational mental health resources to help them care for themselves and their loved ones. 

By donating, you can come alongside our incredible clients and be a lifeline to the hundreds of people who need life-saving treatment and to connect with others who get what they are going through. The majority of funding Rock Recovery receives goes directly towards treatment scholarships that aid individuals who otherwise could not afford clinical treatment in accessing our care at significantly reduced rates.
