What Can You Expect From Contacting Eating Disorder Treatment Centers? 

We have developed this blog in order to explain what to expect when you reach out to us for the first time for help with eating disorders. This way, you can feel more comfortable and confident about getting the help you need. And, have the necessary information you need to take that first step and begin the healing process with the help of mental health and eating disorder specialists. 

First Thing’s First – Reach Out to Us

People may get overwhelmed with the idea of reaching out for help. But, in all reality, the most difficult part is actually coming to terms with the fact that you are dealing with an eating disorder. So, the worst is over. The first step to acting on dealing with an eating disorder is reaching out to professionals for help. So, that means making first contact with an eating disorder treatment facility like Willow Place for Women. Use tools like the internet to vet eating disorder treatment centers to determine which may be the best fit for you. Then, reach out for a confidential, no-obligation consultation by either calling the facility directly or filling out an online contact form from their website. 

The Assessment Process

When you first get to an eating disorder treatment program, you can expect to undergo the assessment process. Basically, during your initial consultation, you’ll be assessed to determine what treatment program may be best for you. During the assessment process, you’ll be asked questions including symptoms you’re experiencing, how long you’ve been experiencing symptoms, your mental and physical health history, and more. All of this information helps mental health specialists identify a specific diagnosis and the best treatment program and services that can help you move forward in recovery. 

The Admissions Process

Once your initial assessment is complete, you’ll speak with your team of mental health specialists about your treatment plan moving forward. And, begin the admissions process. During the admissions process, you’ll start to schedule the treatment programs and services that are best suited to fit your needs. This includes discussing scheduling, insurance and payment, when your treatment will start, and a projection of when your treatment will conclude. Plus, any further treatment services you may need once the initial treatment is finished.
