Inpatient Eating Disorder Treatment for Adults

Based in Denver, Colorado, our Inpatient programming is designed to support women and men that are acutely ill and are experiencing medical and mood instability as a result of their eating disorder.

The Inpatient level of care focuses primarily on weight restoration and medical stabilization, and offers round-the-clock nursing supervision, direct psychiatric care and medication management. Nourishing meals and psycho-social support prepare patients for step-down to the Residential level of care.

Though Inpatient programming offers 24/7 medical support, adult patients are not confined to a hospital bed or room. To the extent that they are physically able, adult patients at the Inpatient level of care are encouraged to participate in programming and interact with a supportive treatment community of adult patients and staff.

In addition to offering 24/7 nursing supervision, medical management and the oversight of a full-time internal medicine physician, our Inpatient programs are located in close proximity to medical campuses. This proximity allows the treatment team to address the medical complications that often accompany eating disorders, and supports a seamless transition to acute care should emergency medical intervention become necessary.

Medical Hospitalization for Extreme Eating Disorders

Extremely low-weight adult patients may require medical stabilization prior to admission. In such circumstances, Eating Recovery Center partners with the ACUTE Center for Eating Disorders at Denver Health. Patients stabilizing at ACUTE receive intensive medical support. The ACUTE team and Eating Recovery Center treatment teams collaborate to facilitate a successful transition to Inpatient eating disorder treatment.
