Leaving the Field: Patrick Devenny’s Recovery Journey


Patrick Devenny seemed to have it all – the star job, the perfect athlete’s body and a sense of identity and purpose. One would never know by looking at him that during his career as a collegiate football player and then Seattle Seahawks player for the NFL, that he was in the clutches of exercise bulimia. In this dark space, Patrick was forced to confront the greatest challenges and questions he faced as an athlete and as a man.

Please join Eating Recovery Center and Insight Behavioral Health Centers for an inspirational morning with Patrick Devenny. His presentation will address confronting the tough questions surrounding identity, purpose, gender expectations and how finding the courage to leave the field finally led him to a place of healing and recovery.
