Parents’ FAQ #5
How involved should we be in our child’s treatment?
Research has shown that the more the parents are involved in treatment, the faster and more fully their child will recover. The younger the child, the more vital your involvement is. However, we recommend that any ACE participant who is living at home with their parents be involved in family therapy and the Multifamily Group. Some insurance companies even require family treatment as a condition for receiving benefits for an eating disorder.
