Hi. I'm a 17 year old from Connecticut diagnosed with anorexia. My parents basically forced me into a voluntary residential facility in Massachusetts, saying my only other choice was involuntary inpatient treatment, since my weight was then below 85% of my ideal body weight, making me eligible for involuntary hospitalization. I have now been in treatment for over a month (the minimum stay is 30 days) and have restored to just over 85% but am still far from my advised discharge at a total of 8 weeks of treatment and 95% ideal weight. Is there any way I can release myself from treatment as a minor? Also if I intentionally get kicked out of this program, can they or my parents move me to another without my consent? I have largely cooperated with the program and wish to continue IOP in place of residential. Do mass. Or conn. laws apply here? Finally, what are the legal ramifications if I run away from the program? Please help me.
