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.
