Does My Child Need Inpatient Eating Disorder Treatment?
The number of children with an eating disorder has been on the rise dramatically. There are many reasons for this, ranging from poor self-image to peer pressure and what they see amongst today’s stars. The only way to know if your child has an eating disorder is to seek help from your doctor. He can assess the progression of your child’s eating disorder and decide whether or not they need to be admitted to an inpatient eating disorder treatment center.
In many cases a child can be treated with outpatient therapy and the appropriate level of care and supervision at home. When they have hidden their disorder to the point where is has become severe, the only alternative may be to have your child admitted to an outpatient eating disorder treatment center. Here they will get the professional therapy, counseling and dietary training they need to overcome their eating disorder and return to a normal life.
