I have a friend who is suffering from laxitive abuse (herbs), and she has had this diorder for 16-17 years. She is in denial that it is a eating disorder. She claims she is cleansing her bowels. I cannot get her to open up and talk, she only acts angry when I bring up the subject.
How does intervension work? What if nothing else works, can her family force her to get help, commitment for her own health and welfare?
