    “The Veritas team are experts in this field, and also they were so kind and compassionate. The team members were solid –  especially important because the path forward was rocky and eating disorders thrive and grow in lies, fear, and denial.”

    “We didn’t know our child was as sick as she was. Our pediatrician referred us, and we finally got our child admitted about a month later. It’s worth the wait, worth the money, and well worth the time you’ll spend without your child. ED can be very lethal if left untreated!”
