 On May 15, Linden Oaks Behavioral Health and the National Association for Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Eating Disorders hosted the 14th annual Candlelight Vigil for those affected by eating disorders.

The event, with the theme “Stepping Stones,” was held in Linden Oaks’ Healing Garden on the campus of Edward Hospital in Naperville.

More than 300 people attended the Vigil, which is held to motivate and encourage recovery, provide support for families, to commemorate those who have lost their lives and recognize those who have recovered and survived.

The Linden Oaks Eating Disorders Program, designated a Center of Excellence by The Joint Commission, offers four levels of care with the latest techniques designed to help adults and adolescents recover from anorexia, bulimia and other eating disorders.
