I know many people who went to Timberline Knolls, but do not have any personal experience with it. One thing to consider-- when you said “possible anorexia nervosa and substance abuse,” does that mean you’re not sure if you have these issues or you’re not sure if you want a place that deals with these issues? I ask because unfortunately or fortunately, many residential programs are available for those primarily
struggling with one or the other. It gets sort of complicated when you have, for instance, an eating disorder that you’re not ready to confront or just aren’t looking to work on, but want your treatment to be specifically for (let’s just say…) depression. There’s aren’t very many high quality, valuable residential programs that won’t want to treat the co-existing disorders as well.
Anyway, if you’re still looking for answers, I think I can help.
