Yes, I have heard it is wonderful. I went to a psychiatrist by the name of Roger Robinson and he recommended it for children 18 and younger..

I do know everyone has different ideas and opinions about Presby in Dallas....but I thought I would put that out there as a treatment option. They have a Wednesday night aftercare group that is also available to anyone who has been through the program. I personally did not care for Presby....but I do know a couple of people it worked for.

Our daughter and our family are indebted to the Stepping Stones program. Their approach to eating disorders is from a holistic approach.
Their team of experts are not a disconnected bunch of docs, but rather a closely knit team. You don't have to repeat information to them. They know where your kid is in terms of recovery and they actually talk and confer with each other.
I can personally vouch for this program and the fact that they actually care.
Children's had a program at one time, but be careful, because they tend to insist on a hospital stay.
Presby is okay for adults, but they will mix adolescents with adults...which is something we didn't want for our daughter.
