Medical Stabilization

The ACUTE Center for Eating Disorders offers comprehensive medical stabilization for men and women suffering from severe anorexia nervosa (restricting and purging sub-types) and bulimia nervosa.

ACUTE patients are typically below 70% of their ideal body weight and suffer from serious medical complications as a result of their eating disorder. Specialized medical care is crucial to avoid the common and potentially fatal complications of refeeding syndrome.

Eating disorders are complex psychological illnesses that, when in the most severe form, can have devastating physical effects on the entire body system. There are many common medical complications that can occur as a result of severe restricting, purging, and diuretic or laxative abuse.
