Choose ACUTE Center for Eating Disorders

The ACUTE Center for Eating Disorders Experience

Let ACUTE help you on the path to a successful recovery.

The ACUTE Center for Eating Disorders offers a unique program that is dedicated entirely to the treatment of patients who are too medically comprised to begin treatment at a traditional eating disorder facility.

Patients, their families and their physicians choose ACUTE because:

  • ACUTE staff members are specially-trained and exceptionally experienced in caring for patients at this specific stage of eating disorder recovery
  • Located on a dedicated medical unit at Denver Health Medical Center, ACUTE has unique access to the benefits of a major medical institution, including on-site sub-specialty referrals, intensive care unit services, surgical teams and more
  • ACUTE's unique experience and high volume of the most severe patients in the country has led to excellent outcomes, short lengths of stay (average length of stay at ACUTE is 14-21 days), rare need for intensive care unit (ICU) transfer and zero mortality among a population of the most at-risk patients

Dr. Mehler Discussing Treatment with an ACUTE Patient Patients and their families can rest assured that ACUTE can help to break the seemingly never-ending cycle of emergency room visits and ineffective medical care by providing definitive stabilization in the hands of a caring and compassionate team. Hundreds of patients have been successfully discharged from our care. Their lives have been changed as a result and their stories and testimonials are both an inspiration and a testament to the level of care you can expect to receive at ACUTE.
