  1. Has anyone ever been in one? I'm talking about the centers that you stay in for a minimum of 3 months and all of that..If you have been in one, was it helpful?

    I've never been in one, but a while back my therapists have discussed one with me, because I was not doing well. At all..
    It was a centre mostly focused on people with BPD and if I'd agreed to go there, I'd have been in there for at least 6 months, I think. A mate of mine is going in this summer.

    So I'm sorry can't help you with personal experience, but I've heard a lot of 'success-stories' about it :unsure:

    I was going to go into residential care/a residential home a couple of years ago and would be there if I didn't have a few roofs to stay under- but those were run by charities for people with mental illness in general- and there's no therapy as such.

    If you mean something like eating disorder residential treatment then - the only thing I know about here is inpatient at specialised eating disorder clinics here in the UK and it's very difficult to even get any kind of help here. There are private places but then again, they vary- I'd just suggest you research everything very carefully.

    I've heard interesting, varied things about places in the US though.
  4. Ish. - Does your friend think he/she will benefit from it?

    ggg456 - I don't mean an ED center, but they do treat EDs at the place I'm looking at, too. I will definitely research before I even consider going into the center, but from what I'm thinking, it's probably somewhat of my last option.

    And I'm in the US, if that helps anyone.

    Yes my friend will probably benefit from it. she's seeing this as her last option too. tried everything else nothing works. Now she's going for this, as they are specialized a bit in her problems.supposedly it can really help
