I have been reading through parent reviews and have found the vast majority are for children or adolescent centers. Does anyone have any suggestions for a residential center for adults? Thank you.
Depends on age. If they are young adults, UCSD and UCSF have a FBT-tay (transition age youth) program.
And I think the Center of balanced living in Ohio has a program for adults. Please check those.
Keep feeding. There is light at the end of the tunnel.

Hi Formygirl,

The Columbia Research Residential unit up at 168th street in NYC. Evidence based, kind, respectful towards families, serious about refeeding and symptom remission and also some of the smartest people working in the eating disorders field, in my opinion.


Pls note that what they call inpatient on their website is in fact residential, since you need to be medically stable to be there.
