We are currently conducting a research study to compare two forms of family-based treatment for anorexia nervosa. Adolescents aged 12-18 with anorexia nervosa can take part in the trial. Patients and parents will undergo a diagnostic assessment and receive 6 months of outpatient treatment. Progress will be monitored during and after treatment.
