If you have had any experiences with the University of Michigan ED unit, please go to the Caregiver's page on reviewing providers -- I have a new topic there and it seems like that page may not get as much traffic as this one -- so if you don't mind jumping over there to leave a more private review it would be really great.  I have found no info on it other than on their own site ....

Son,DX with AN, (purging type) in 2015 ,had 4 months immediate inpatient,then FBT at home since. He is now in very strong recovery,  and Living life to the full, like a "normal"[biggrin] teen. This is with thanks to ATDT. Hoping to get him into full recovery and remission one day at a time. Getting him to a much higher weight, and with a much higher calorie plan than his clinicians gave him as a target, was instrumental to getting him to the strong recovery that he is in now. Food is the medicine. Recovery is possible.
