Has anyone here been able to get a feeding tube to handle their disorder outside of the hospital?

I don’t think they do that because it can be a medical risk .. I’m not sure though

Yes, I've been in treatment for ARFID a few times and went home with a tube each time. They mainly just do a ng tube. And if it's an extended amount of time they can place a G tube.
