There are various means to treat eating disorder and treatment centers provide flexibility to their patients while at the same time ensuring healing and progress. A team of professionals such as a psychologist, nutritionist, physician, and therapist can provide you with outpatient treatment plans via continuous appointments and assessment of your progress.
In other cases, doctors can put you on a residential treatment plan, which means you will be asked to receive treatment in a specialized facility while having access to all the things that would be able to help in your healing such as counseling, group sharing, and doctors’ appointments.
For a more severe case, doctors can require you to stay in treatment institutions for at least 3 weeks for round the clock care and monitoring of your weight.
All these treatment plans are carried out by licensed and professional healthcare practitioners.
