and support to those seeking education about various addictions. Addictions.net became one of the first
websites offering information about Eating Disorders. By the early 1990's it became clear that
most visitors to the site needed more information on the lethal illnesses of eating disorders. The site's
focus shifted to eating disorders at that time offering individuals across the world assistance with education,
links for treatment, and much needed support. Within

information on eating disorders. The site has been maintained by a single. experienced Eating Disorder Psychotherapist/Therapist
(Deborah Kuehnel, LCSW) as a pro-bono addition to a
29+ year career dedicated to the treatment of Eating Disorders.
