While most of us would rather avoid an inpatient program especially for our young children, there are times when an inpatient eating disorder treatment makes more sense. Inpatient treatment is recommended when a patient is severely underweight or has tried other treatments only to relapse. Inpatient treatment offers a more intensive treatment as well as a supervised and limited environment that encourages clients to make progress in dealing with their eating disorders.
In addition to intensive therapy and group therapy, clients will attend nutrition and exercise classes to help them learn how to find balance in their lives and to take good care of their bodies. Inpatient eating disorder treatment can teach a child how to deal with the pressures they will encounter in the ordinary world.
