the girl they call "Anna"

I was thinking about a firend of mine who has battled an eating disorder for years, and has also been in legal trouble. My thought was: in the event that someone with an eating disorder went to jail, or developed one there, what would be the reaction of the administrative/food/medical staff if it was discovered? Would there be treatment options offered? Would they recieve any sort of special treatment (such as suicide watch) as this could be interpreted as a form of suicide? Would they be permitted any particular food options? Overall what I'm asking is what, exactly, might happen?


And what do you think should happen?
