When it comes to “spectrums” of any kind, it seems that it’s generally wise to aim for a spot somewhere between the two extremes. That’s what we recommend to the people we work with at our eating disorder treatment center in California when it comes to recovery and their degree of confidence.

It’s challenging for parents to know how much to involve themselves in their teen’s recovery. When a teen is staying at an eating disorder treatment center in California, the patient and their care team set boundaries. When the teen returns home and her parents want to show their support without stepping into the work still being done, they might consider becoming community advocates for eating disorder causes.
