My daughter wants to check out of residential care and it hasn’t been 30  days and wants to leave and doesn’t want to do EDIOp Or  IOp   I was wondering if anybody has any statistics I could send her showing that it is beneficial to have support after residential care to increase success and decrease likelihood of relapse. It’s very hard because she’s over 18 and feels like she has mastered her skills and doesn’t need the extra support and only wants counseling and dietitian. Anyone have any support suggestions Or resources I can look into? Thank you

I do not think that any statistics will help. She cannot think clearly and logical reasons will not get through.
You write she is over 18. Is she financially or in other way dependend from you? Does she live with you and want to come back to your home after discharge? Then I would have a contract with her and set rules for that. We have that too.
If she wants to have financial support and live with you she needs to see a GP and a therapist regularly, get weighed regularly, stick to 3 meals 3 snacks and maintain or gain weight.
Keep feeding. There is light at the end of the tunnel.
