My daughter is bulimic and is being referred to Cornell - Westchesters in-patient adolescent eating disorder unit. is there anyone out there who knows about the program. She is currently in Schneider's Children's Hospital day program. Does anyone know of any other programs in the New York area.

I don't think there are any other in-patient programs in the New York area. Cornell is not bad but not that great either.
Any specific questions about it?

Also, the Renfrew Center in Manhattan is much better than the LIJ program.

Good Luck!

Columbia Pres. has an inpatient program, but its research based, so she'd have to meet specific criteria to get in.

Princeton Hospital (in NJ) also has an inpt program that is supposed to be very good.

If she can go partial (day program), i've been at renfrew for 3 years, i can answer any questiosn about their program. Their inpatient facitlities are in philadelphia and Fl.

There's also a place called Somerset which I think is nearby (Jersey maybe???)

good luck, feel free to ask any questions

Renfrew is a great place! I'm happy she's going there at the end.

By the way, I have lots of experiences with therapists in New York so if you need any information or anything let me know.
You have to be really careful. There are great ones out there and then there are those who can really mess you up.

My daughter started Renfrew today. When we left I could see that she was nervous, but for the first time since we have been dealing with this illness, she finally seemed motivated to really want to beat this. Thanks for everyone's good advise and good wishes.

My daughter just got out of REnfrew and is doing the day program in Manhattan. Do you have any suggestions for therapists. If they are in Brooklyn it would be even better. Thanks so much.

I heard that Magen Avraham suggests Princeton University Medical Center http://www.princetonhcs.org/page4773.aspx, though I don't know anything about it.
