Eating Disorder Treatment

I've been dealing with anorexia nervosa and substance abuse for as long as I can remember. I've gone into treatment multiple times for both of these issues, but over the last year, I decided I was tired of living the way I've been living. I want to work to get over these diseases so I can live a real life and accomplish the things I want to accomplish.

I've spent the last several weeks working with my outpatient team to figure out the best possible solution and it was decided that residential treatment is the best thing for me at the moment.

Unfortunately, insurance only covers so much, and in the end, I'm going to owe about $16,000 out of pocket. My dad is taking out a home equity loan, but he's retired and on a fixed income. I'm hoping to raise whatever I can so that I can help him make payments on his loan.

I would appreciate any help you can offer!
