The Inpatient Pit Stop: Inside Eating Disorder Treatment
Sophomore year of college was supposed to be my year. I had my first summer internship under my belt, decent grades, and a solid group of friends.
But, I was also starting the year with something else: a debilitating eating disorder.
Instead of sitting in my intro level accounting class, I was sitting across from the “Dream Team” — my parents, therapist, dietitian, and university Dean — being told I was going to die if I didn’t go to inpatient treatment immediately.
After repeatedly pleading with my team to let me stay on campus, I finally accepted the fact that I was incredibly sick and needed acute treatment for anorexia.
The Dream Team immediately began arranging logistics for me to officially start my inpatient treatment experience at the Eating Recovery Center (ERC) in Denver, Colorado.
