COVID and Eating Disorders
Eating disorders and Covid are a scary, and terrible mix. For the eating disorder center here in Dallas, the Covid restrictions have been very hard. But they have been lucky enough to have a full medical staff and team at their disposal to help them find their way through. They had already been offering IOP, for a couple of years. So transferring from inpatient treatment, to IOP was a breeze to say the least. Last year the eating disorder hotline saw 75% increase in help calls, and an 89% increase in calls this year.
