Eating Disorder Recovery

Continued Care

Transition After Treatment

ACUTE Patient Reading in Bed

The typical length of stay at the ACUTE Center for Eating Disorders is 14-21 days. Upon discharge, each patient meets the following medical stabilization criteria for safe transition to an eating disorder treatment program for their continued eating disorder recovery:

  • Consuming a targeted number of calories per day determined on a patient-by-patient basis based on ACUTE's weight restoration goals
  • Has received medical detoxification from purging mechanism and any co-occurring alcohol or substance abuse
  • Has alleviated any complications associated with cessation of all purging methods (vomiting, laxative abuse and diuretic abuse)
  • Has normal or steadily normalizing labs and is no longer in need of electrolyte supplementation, such as potassium or phosphorous 
  • Is physically strong enough to engage in traditional inpatient or residential programming

We strongly encourage each patient to continue their eating disorder recovery at a traditional inpatient or residential eating disorder treatment program of their choice once medically stable. If you need assistance our dedicated team of social workers will be more than happy to make recommendations to help you choose the program that will best meet your needs.
