Does your center work with people who have an intellectual disability coupled with an eating disorder.

Answered by: Julie Goldfein

This is a great question, thanks for asking. Every person we treat here does some type of research in exchange for free treatment, so they do have to be willing to come here on their own, and must be able to understand and agree to the details of the research they’re involved in. However, since everyone’s situation is unique, and this is a difficult question to answer without knowing more specifics, I encourage you to call us so we can answer your question more directly.
