Our Eating Disorder Treatment Services
The ACUTE Center for Eating Disorders cares for patients suffering from severe anorexia and bulimia nervosa who are typically too ill to begin their treatment a traditional eating disorder treatment facility.
Comprehensive Medical Stabilization
Medical stabilization is the
first step in successful recovery from an eating disorder. The goal of medical stabilization at ACUTE is to prepare patients for the next stage in their recovery and increase their chance for success by resolving any medical issues prior to intensive programming.
ACUTE provides comprehensive and intensive support to help patients gain medical stability and reduce their risk for developing
refeeding syndrome and other serious medical complications that are common in early refeeding.
Our team works collaboratively to develop a highly
individualized treatment plan addressing both the physical and emotional concerns surrounding the eating disorder.
In addition, our team works with each patient to establish a
discharge plan early on and communicates with the accepting facility throughout stabilization to ensure a seamless transition for continued care.
ACUTE provides customized and comprehensive therapy for each patient. Our
multidisciplinary team works together to create an individualized treatment plan for each patient that addresses the specific physical and mental aspects of his/her illness.
