Hi all.  Just curious if anyone has had any experiences with Hasbro OP program and / or Boston Children’s / Mass General.

hi, in the same region as you. Hasbro is the best. excellent partial program, we are here now. They have  good adolescent med outpatient team too.  As good as Children's is for  medical, they are lacking in decent psychiatric care. Mass Gen would be awesome but I think they only have outpatient.  walden is meh. heard bad things about Cambridge Eating Disorders. What level of care are you looking for?

Just realized you wrote outpatient. I don't have experience with Children's outpatient ED group (only their outpatient and inpatient psych) or MGH outpatient. MGH seems hard to get in to. I have an adolescent med dr at Newton wellesley that we are meeting next week (I have heard good things) and will do Metrowest Nutrition at Newton Wellesley once we finish at Hasbro partial. Hope this info helps.

Hi there!  Thank you for all replies and the really lengthy time it has taken me to get back to you.  To be honest I cannot remember even writing this post in January.... there were obviously some issues that we didn’t address.... and now here we are AGAIN.  Sigh.  So currently we are on the waiting list for the Partial programme at Hasbro. We are hoping that the therapy part will help my D.

@H2OMom I would love to talk with you more about Hasbro partial.   We did a week at Hasbro , are weight restored , but I’ve had to push for a higher weight, multiple times from Hasbro clinic.  My D is struggling mentally , really trying to regain control of food , when and what she eats , but is still holding strong weight wise and even gaining.  BUT... we need the therapy part.  I’m hoping this is where partial comes in.
