dr. mehler is a very kind, very smart doctor. on the first night i arrived, he literally sat at my beside for over a half an hour & talked to me [this was at like 9pm]. i would not be alive if it wasn...'t for his research & treatment protocols - particularly for SMA syndrome & refeeding syndrome. you will not find anyone in the medical field who understands these two issues better or more compassionately. i will always look back on the four weeks i spent here (feb '15) as a serious privilege & nothing short of a miracle. thank you again, ACUTE & staff.

I honestly really really like this facility as i’m here now and have been before but i’m extremely tired of CNA’s falling asleep on me. It’s so unprofessional and makes me feel unsafe. PLEASE ADDRESS THIS NOW.

Never have I found a place more supportive, nourishing and encouraging as Acute in Denver. The staff is PHENOMENAL - warm, understanding and very compassionate about what they do. Their expertise is l...ike no other!
Acute has provided me a springboard for the rest of my life...and I feel certain it's one with a strong foundation of RECOVERY from this condition - FINALLY.
They truly "get" eating disorders...they seem to understand it all and accept you as you ARE...no matter how "flawed" YOU may think you are.
I encourage anyone with this condition who feels "lost" and "stuck" to attend this facility. Most of all, one needs to be READY and WILLING to let them help you - they are on OUR TEAM...it's not "them against US" !! If you let them...they'll guide you through and give you that helping hand to move FORWARD.
I only wish there were more Acute facilities out there to influence and help our population...
My gratefulness to this facility is endless...

Been a year now since I was released.....thinking about this place and all the friends I made. Although I still struggle this place really opened my eyes up and helped me take steps to recovery.

This place is a JOKE.

And I've been to MANY treatment facilities over my eleven years struggling with various eating disorder's....

There are NO "eating disorder specialist's" (simply untrained CNA's, mainly float pool staff, who have a one day "orientation" shadowing staff on the unit) that sit with you 1:1.

There is NO therapeutic aspect to the program (that "5 days a week of individual therapy?" More like 10-15 minute's of BS only to determine if you can make decision's for yourself.)

WARNING: You can easily be trapped by the mental health system in Colorado, so even if you come in voluntarily they will threaten to get a court order, put you on a commitment, restrain you, and force a feeding tube down your throat, if you try and leave, and are (well, obviously�) put on an involuntary status. Medical stability law's vary from state to state, so be sure to look Denver's up before admitting. They force you to go through "refeeding syndrome" and continuously weight restore EVEN IF you are medically stable regarding everything else that's measurable.

This place is why I'm refusing to continue treatment, though I had planned to finish inpatient-PHP after completion of acute. It has stolen any and all hope I had for possibly recovery away, after stealing my right's away, threatening me, and having no decent eating disorder programming of ANY sort.

I can't say enough good things about Denver ACUTE. As soon as I arrived, I felt welcomed and cared for. Dr. Gaudiani is phenomenal. She let me know how important it was that I be there and getting the... proper care. Amy, my dietician, was SO incredible and very easy to talk to. Dr. Bennett the psychiatrist was also AMAZINGLY top notch! I felt like for the first time in my life, I was a part of my treatment team, not just a patient. It was an incredible experience that was so refreshing, having been in other treatment centers before. I never felt unwelcome or like I was being a burden. The CNAs for the most part were incredibly sweet and caring as well. If you get accepted into ACUTE - GO! It's amazing treatment and world-renowned medical care. See More

Here is an interesting study that was completed in 2017 and published by the Journal of Psychosomatic Research.

A few highlights:

•Female AN patients are more likely diagnosed as digestive, endocrine, and mental disorders.

...

•Female AN patients use more outpatient services, mainly due to psychiatric visits.

•An earlier diagnosis of AN causes lower medical utilization and lower expenditure.

•We advocate the increasing alertness of physical illnesses with AN among medical professional.

This study also suggests that a person will suffer from a AN for 4 years on average BEFORE the eating disorder was recognized and treated.

**How many times have you seen this be the case? Early detection, proper identification and less unnecessary tests can make a huge difference in someones life who suffers from an eating disorder. Do you know what to look for and the appropriate questions to ask?

Call us at 877-228-8348 or email us at ACUTEInfo@dhha.org, we're here to help!
