Located on a dedicated medical unit at Denver Health, ACUTE patients benefit from the extensive support of a major medical hospital while receiving care from a team of experienced professionals that specializes in providing lifesaving eating disorder treatment and conducting revolutionary eating disorder research.

Every patient that enters ACUTE receives a highly individualized treatment plan designed to achieve the following

  • Alleviate any medical complications associated with severe anorexia nervosa or bulimia nervosa,
  • Avoid and manage the potentially fatal risks of refeeding syndrome, and
  • Prepare him/her for a smooth transition into a traditional inpatient or residential eating disorder treatment program.
