Eating Disorders Cost Billions in the U.S.

(Health Day News) -- Eating disorders -- such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia and binge-eating disorder -- cost the U.S. economy nearly $65 billion in one recent year, a new report shows.

According to the Academy for Eating Disorders (AED), there were nearly 54,000 emergency department visits due to eating disorders in fiscal year 2018 to 2019, costing $29 million, and over 23,500 in-patient hospitalizations due to eating disorders, costing $209 million.

Alsana, Castlewood Treatment Center, Harmony Place Monterey are all "for profit" corporations. There may be some well intentioned therapists who work at these places, but the bottom line is MONEY. This video shines a light on the entire Mental Health Industry, especially Eating Disorders Treatment Facilities.
