"What to Look For in an Eating Disorder Treatment Center" commentary

"What to Look For in an Eating Disorder Treatment Center" is an article in the New York Times.

I wish it went a little beyond its content.

“Unless you can change the behavior, no amount of insight-oriented therapy is helpful,” said Dr. Angela Guarda, the director of the eating disorders center at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore.

Yes, I agree that behavior needs to be addressed first. But at least a little insight is required so people can gradually move beyond the eating disorders behaviors into the psychological work needed.

What made an eating disorder the best option for self care needs to be addressed so the person is really free from leaning toward or falling into an eating disorder again.

Unfortunately, too many treatment situations and insurance criteria measure recovery in terms of behavior. The behaviors are symptoms. Slowing down and stopping the eating disorder behaviors are what's needed in order for the real recovery work to begin.

Please address at least one of the below questions in the comments. Your response can help many others.

1. Have you been in an eating disorder residential treatment center?

2. What was bad about it?

3. What was good about it?

4. Did you complete the program?

5. What was your experience after leaving?
