All the support you need, right from home.
Arise is a virtual eating disorder program that focuses on total mind and body care. This isn’t your typical kind of treatment. We take time to get to know you, listen to you, and build a personalized care plan, together.
From virtual sessions with therapists and dietitians, to texting or meeting live with your Care Advocate as day-to-day challenges come up, we got you. Because no one should have to go through this alone.
COVERING YOUR CARE
We're covered by insurance.
SO, HOW DOES THIS ALL WORK?
It's easy to get started with us.
It takes just a few minutes to sign up online and set up your Arise account where you can schedule appointments and meet your team.
Choose a Care Advocate who you want with you on your healing journey, and book your free welcome call to get to know each other and see if Arise is a good fit for your needs.
After your consultation, you'll meet with one of our therapists to understand your needs and goals for your care.
If Arise is the right fit for your current needs and goals, we'll start your care plan. This can include weekly sessions with a therapist, registered dietitian, and group support to support you on your healing journey!
WHAT TO EXPECT WITH US
Community + care that works for you.
Peer and group support
You'll choose a Care Advocate to navigate the tough moments and heal your relationship with food, body image, and your mental health. With Arise Community Groups, you'll connect with others who get what you're going through.
Therapy that works for you
Therapy should be about what works best for you. Our therapists are here to listen to you and understand who you are and what you've been through — so we can work together on the type of care that's going to be best for you.
Personalized nutrition plans
Our Registered Dietitians will work with you to navigate tough thoughts and behaviors around food and build realistic meal plans that work for your life — making sure foods you like and those that are important in your culture or community are included.
Arise is different.
No BS. Just healing.
What our members are saying
“I love the connection I've built with my Care Advocate. I trust her and feel trusted by her, I think our exchanges and conversations are all so full of compassion and respect...I feel like I'm being heard and listened to and my concerns and limits are being taken into account.”
“It has really helped me build a sense of community and belonging that made me less lonely and isolated in my struggle with an eating disorder...I used to think I would never want to make it out of it and be scared of every other program I had encountered, but Arise has changed that for me.”

Whether you're wondering if your day-to-day issues with food and body image are actually a problem, have been in treatment before, or have never been diagnosed with an eating disorder, we're here for you. If thoughts about food and your body are taking over, you feel out of control around food, and your mental health and life is being impacted by it all — you're in the right place.
Arise was designed by and for people of many different backgrounds who have lived with eating disorders and mental health conditions. We all came together to build a program that includes community support and clinical care (think therapy, meeting with a dietitian, checking in a nonjudgmental and supportive medical team). Because we believe everyone deserves the chance to heal.
Yes, you can join without a formal diagnosis! We know that there are many barriers to accessing care for eating disorders, and that it can often be difficult to get an assessment and reach a diagnosis. If you think that you are living with an eating disorder, whether it's self-reported or has been previously diagnosed, this program may be a good fit for you.
Arise Care Advocates have various backgrounds and experiences working with folks through programs like peer recovery coaching and in community-based settings. They are here to be your go-to person throughout the program — starting with listening and seeking to understand your experiences, supporting you in reaching your goals for healing, and supporting you at every step of the journey. They'll be available for one-on-one sessions, leading your community group, and supporting you between sessions, too over text message or email.
We're committed to making care more accessible and affordable. That's why we're accepting insurance from the start. It takes a while for us to get in-network with each health plan, so we're starting with a big one in Texas, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas, and will roll out additional plans as we get in-network with others.
So here's how pricing works with us:
1. If you're covered by one of the health plans we're in-network with, clinical services (therapy, dietitian sessions, psychiatric and medical services) will be covered by your health plan.
2. In that case, your usual co-pays and deductibles will apply. We'll work with you to understand your coverage and what you can expect your co-pays to be.
3. Depending on where you go for labs, some may accept your insurance, but others may require you submit for out-of-network reimbursement — we'll help you to navigate this, too!
We also offer self pay options, including per service and bundling, and aim to keep those costs reasonable for you.
We're working to expand coverage and accept more health plans as soon as possible.

These groups will be bringing together folks who have some shared identities, experiences, and/or backgrounds to surround each other with support. They will be led by Care Advocates and include 5-10 people. You will get to choose which groups feel right for you. Topics will vary week-to-week and also be open to what feels helpful for the group to discuss, which you'll decide together.
We know that healing from an eating disorder can feel so hard — many of our team members have been there, too, and we want you to know we're all here for you. Healing is a process, and the time that it takes will look different for everyone. We're here to support you at every step and build skills that you can take forward in your healing longer-term.
