Life giving answers to a complex disorder.
My daughter is finishing up 3 months of inpatient and hospitalization rehab for anorexia and bulemia. I have been frantic on how to handle our life when she comes home from the treatment center. This book gave clear and concise answers and viewpoints from several different eating disorder possible situations that I may be faced with. I will refer back to different chapters for advice as different situations arise.
