Eating disorders are chronic, relapsing problems and treatment requires addressing harmful patterns of behaviour. Anorexia is a condition in which a person will strive to attain a low body weight by avoiding food or certain food groups which are considered fattening. Weight loss is the addicted persons aim but other characteristics of the illness include excessive exercise, a poor sleeping pattern, low disposition and lack of interest in many social interactions.
Anorexia rehab is much more than eating well and restoration of a healthier body weight, so while our initial aim is to stabilise a healthy eating pattern, in conjunction with this we need to investigate the key personal issues relating to the person’s illness, meaning the underlying issues which enabled anorexia to take over life.
Our qualified and highly skilled team of health professionals are experienced in the field of eating disorders as primary or secondary processes, and are specifically trained to manage dual diagnoses or concurrent disorders. Our team includes a psychiatrist, counsellor and psychiatric nurse.
At the Clifton Clinic eating disorder treatments combines intervention including individual and group therapy, cognitive therapy, nutritional, counselling and life skills training. The flexibility of our anorexia rehab programme ensures that it is able to meet the individual patient needs.
With this trust we will help someone accept and recognise the nature of their illness and achieve a normal relationship with food.
With the help of the Clifton Clinic, anorexia is treatable even with a long history of problems with eating disorders.
