Eating disorder services

We provide an outpatient programme for the treatment of eating disorders, including Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, and binge eating disorder.

The service is suitable for adults from the age of 18 and specialist individualised therapy programmes are provided incorporating psychiatric, therapeutic and dietetic interventions.

Environment and facilities

The environment we create for patients is as important as the treatment, itself. To this end, each patient has the privacy of his or her own comfortable bedroom, with television, telephone, and en-suite facilities. Patients are encouraged to have their meals in the main dining room, which offers excellent choice of dishes. Special dietary requirements can also be catered for.

Therapy and treatment programmes

The first step to recovery for the patient is to undergo an initial assessment to identify the issues, make any diagnosis and draw up the most appropriate treatment plan. For our addictions treatment programme we offer a free initial addiction assessment.
