It is perfectly understandable to be a bit concerned about your visit to an eating disorder center, you may or may not understand that you have a disorder, and you may not know what to expect from the other clients there as well as what the staff will be like. Sometimes it is possible to visit the center before your treatment begins, this can be a good way to reassure you that the other clients there are just like you as well as to get a chance to know and become comfortable with the staff.
If this is not possible then perhaps you can spend some time talking to some of the staff, for the purpose of getting your questions and concerns answered. Most staff members understand your concern and will take the time to reassure you. Visit us at Center for Discovery to learn more about our residential treatment center.
