What Treatment Center?

Question by : What treatment center?
hi I’m a 19 year old female who has been secretly suffering from anorexia and bulimia for about 4 years. I have decided it’s time to tell my parents and receive treatment but I don’t know which treatment center is right for me. I know a lot of treatment centers also deal with other mental illnesses like bipolar disorder among others and also addiction to drugs and alcohol. however I do not abuse or even use drugs or alcohol and the only mental illness I have is anorexia and bulimia. I want to make sure im picking the right treatment center for me. does anyone have any suggestions? by the way I live in new York so anything in that area would be more convient, but I’m not opposed to going out of state. and I’m also looking for an inpatient program.

You might get better answers and some personal experiences if you put this question in the mental health section rather than cancer.
To answer this question largely depends on where you live and what insurance you have. The hospitals I work for that have physic units handle a variety of problems and do not mix eating disorder patients with alcohol and drug abuse patient’s as the needs are different.
I am so glad you recognize your problem and want help fixing it. A lot of people don’t. You can do anything you set your mind to do. Best wishes.
