Has anyone been to Linden Oaks hospital, in Napersville, IL?

I'm thinking about doing treatment there... but I'm not sure.

Any information would be helpful.

Oh - and even if you haven't been to Linden Oaks, if you live in or around Illinois, what treatment DID you do? Did they treat co-morbidity? What was the cost? What was it like?

I want in-patient, because there's more going on than an ED.

I'm not sure which program I want... I'm "recovered", but am triggering and relapsing, steadily. That's scaring the shit outta me, but I'm not doing anything to stop it. (I've lost about 15 pounds, already.) I don't think I'd even qualify for an in-patient ED program, since my behaviors and weight "aren't severe" enough, right now. But I am relapsing, so I want to take care of it before it gets worse.  I'm 5'3'' and 125 - very healthy weight.

I also have Borderline, which is fucking with me. I've had more and more dissociative episodes, lately. I never sleep, ever, unless I'm high/drunk/take something like vicodin. I think I'm getting addicted to pain killers.

I'm just kind of treatment hunting. I'm not sure where I want to go, or what I want to focus on...
