ACUTE Eating Disorder Stories

We’d like you to meet some of our patients through their personal eating disorder stories. You’ll discover how ACUTE can help break the seemingly never-ending cycle of emergency room visits and ineffective medical care by providing definitive stabilization in the hands of our caring and compassionate eating disorder specialists. Hundreds of patients have been successfully discharged from our care.

A Lifelong Eating Disorder Battle – and How I Survived: Betty’s Story

I now realize that treatment should not feel like babysitting. At ACUTE, I finally found a team and program that helped save my life.

Patient Testimonials

Family Testimonials

The ACUTE Center for Eating Disorders saves the lives of severe eating disorder patients, and their loved ones are often the most vocal and most grateful.

There is NO hospital we recommend above Denver Health.

Our daughter was diagnosed with Anorexia Nervosa and has been treated as such for six years. She has been in and out of several eating disorder clinics with no long term improvement. We felt that something else was wrong, because she didn't have most of the typical "behavioral" symptoms of Anorexia Nervosa patients. Based on many of her symptoms, we felt she had Celiac Disease, but our doctors kept insisting it was as eating disorder. Our local hospitals eventually lost patience with us, telling us we were in denial, and should go to another hospital. We did.....we took her to Denver Health (DH).DH was the first Hospital that actually listened to us, and showed the compassion and understanding that something else was wrong. The doctors at DH were less interested in our daughter's history and more interested in getting to the source of her problems. While she is not out of the woods yet, we believe the doctors at DH have put her on the right path.

During the past several years, we have been to some of the "big name" hospitals, but there is NO hospital we would recommend above DH. Thanks a million DH for getting our daughter on the road to recovery.
