What is Inpatient Treatment?
Inpatient treatment means a patient will stay in the ACUTE unit for a set period of time. The patient will be treated medically and stay at the hospital during throughout the entire treatment process. In outpatient care, a patient will be able to stay at home and come in for care. ACUTE does not offer outpatient care. The ACUTE Center for Eating Disorders is the first and only medical inpatient eating disorder treatment program in the country.
We offer hope when all other medical care has failed.
Comprehensive Medical Stabilization
Because almost every part of the body can be adversely affected by progressive malnutrition, the ACUTE Center for Eating Disorders builds an experienced, multidisciplinary team for each patient and eating disorder treatment begins with the critical first step of medical stabilization. Team members work diligently to develop an individualized treatment plan and share innovative approaches from physical, physiological, mental, emotional, social and nutritional perspectives. With experience treating the most extreme cases of these diseases, we understand the intensity of denial, the fear of gaining weight and distorted views of body image. We bring a depth of experience, compassion and determination that has proven successful in fostering each patient’s survival and eventual recovery.
