Does this family need to raise $150,000 to send their nine-year old daughter to a residential treatment center ? Maybe they need to get a second opinion from a clinician who doesn't say "you can't just make them eat." Zero to 60. This family seems only to have been given two speeds: let her starve at home because she has a "coping" problem, or separate her from her family for months to be magically cured. Watch this video , then decide: are you going to send them a check or send them to a Family-Based Maudsley therapist or treatment center . This family is surely going to think I'm a quack, but if they are contacted by enough people they may be able to rise above the Sales Department at the treatment center and seek evidence-based care. It is worth a try.
