In theirrecent press release, RR said that the majority of women they treated (49%) had suffered childhood sexual abuse and trauma. I know it's a bit nit-picky, but still. It's NOT a majority.
Of course, RR isn't necessarily in the business of statistics. They're in the business of selling eating disorder treatment programs (at the cost of about $2000 per day). I know people who have gone onto recovery after a stay at RR- but not at the rate of 95% that their website claims.
I think you need the wiring to develop an eating disorder, period. Does abuse mean your wires may need less triggering than if you hadn't been abused? It seems likely.
But forRemudato say that the majority of women with eating disorders have been abused or traumatized is WAY off the mark.Remudadoes NOT see an even cross-section of people with eating disorders. They see the people who have decided to come to their clinic- and can afford to do so.
