Improve Access to Eating Disorder Therapy Services

Almost 30 million Americans (and over 430,000 Alabamians) will have an eating disorder in their lifetime. A primary goal of the Auburn Eating Disorders Clinic (AEDC) is to alleviate the financial burden some families and adults face when seeking therapy services for eating disorders. 

The AEDC provides empirically supported, high quality, low-cost services to members within the Auburn-Opelika area and throughout Alabama via telehealth services. Many adults and families have expressed interest in our therapy services, yet many are unable to cover the costs, even at a reduced fee. 

Outside of the AEDC, licensed providers specializing in treatment of eating disorders are limited in the Auburn-Opelika area, cost can be a prohibitive barrier for many individuals, and the COVID-19 pandemic has contributed to an increase in eating disorders and eating disorder severity across the country in the last several years. 

Through gifts from Tiger Giving Day last year, we were able to double the number of clients seen in our clinic. This year, help us continue to expand our services and provide exceptional and evidence-based services for children, teens, and adults with eating disorders, sponsor scholarships for clients, and support additional administrative staff to help manage an increasing number of clients as the clinic grows. 

At the AEDC, our mission aligns with the lines from the Auburn Creed, “I believe in a sound mind, in a sound body and a spirit that is not afraid.” With your support, we can help our community members with eating disorders live according to those values!


Funds raised in excess of a project’s goal will be used to meet the immediate and emerging needs of said project at the discretion of the sponsoring unit
