As Canada’s leading and largest mental health, addiction, and trauma experts, our eating disorders treatment includes:

Eating Disorder Group Therapy

Our programs are tailored to individual patients because everyone’s path is different:

  • We accept that patients are at different places in their illness and recovery process and will work with them to develop a realistic individualized plan
  • While supporting a return to normalized eating, we focus on supporting the mental health of our patients
  • We support families using educational programs developed by a pioneer in the field of eating disorders treatment
  • Our in-depth approach also includes meal supervision for nutritional rehabilitation
  • Our program concurrently addresses substance use issues, as required
  • We provide continuing support to ensure a smooth and safe reintegration into our patients’ communities
We value helping patients make changes that they plan to carry into their life after treatment. Our goal is to ensure patients and their families feel supported and empowered to move forward together.
 

Eating Disorder Program Streams​

Our program is designed to be flexible, with multiple steams to help achieve different goals: full remission of symptoms and weight rehabilitation, or smaller changes that are achieved over time.
