Re: Treatment programs, or hospitalization?
I have been in a hospital, twice in the last year. It was an Inpaicent Pychiatric Unit. I stayed there for a total of 5 months.
It. Was. Wonderful.
I wasn't in there for cutting, however I did cut at the time. I was in the IPU for anorexia.
It was probably one of the best experiences of my life, I simply loved the people there all the staff members that is, and some of the pacients too. I actually still talk to a few of the friends I made in there.
It was also hellish because I didn't want to gain weight.
but I do think hospitals or treatment centers can help, BUT only if you are motivated and have a support system when you get back to the real world.
