Caring for and supporting a teen with an eating disorder can be confusing
and frustrating, even frightening, If your teen is suffering from medical
complications resulting from a severe eating disorder, the expert staff
at Torrance Memorial Medical Center’s Eating Disorders Program can help.
In addition to providing life-saving medical management, our specially
trained team will supervise your teen's care during refeeding to avoid
refeeding syndrome, the complications that can occur when a starving body
begins to take in more calories. We also work with you and your teen to
understand the emotional and behavioral challenges of their eating disorder
and take those first important steps toward help and healing.
