Treatment for Eating Disorders
Eating disorders, such as anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa, are serious and potentially life threatening mental and physical illnesses. Disordered eating can significantly impair physical, psychological and social wellbeing. Those who experience eating disorders may suffer for many years and often do not seek treatment despite the distress, pain and health risks they endure.
Evidence supports that the sooner treatment is commenced for an eating disorder, the shorter the recovery process will be. Seeking help early is much more effective than waiting until the illness is in full swing. Left unattended, eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa continue to create long term difficulties and present a significant mortality risk. Effective treatment, coupled with personal commitment, is the key to recovery.
Northside Group is a well-reputed Sydney Eating Disorder Clinic specialising in providing the highest standard of treatment for people suffering from a range of eating disorders. Typically developed during adolescence, eating disorders can progress and emerge into adulthood.
There are four categories of eating disorders: Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, OSFED (Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorder), EDNOS (Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified) and Binge Eating Disorder.
Our Eating Disorder Programs offer a high level of support to people living with an eating disorder to enhance motivation and develop skills, knowledge and resources to arrest unhelpful eating behaviours and attitudes and to continue the journey of recovery.
Our inpatient eating disorder treatment is run by an experienced multi-disciplinary team who will provide you with 24 hour care.
We will provide you with a comfortable, stable environment allowing you to focus solely on your recovery.
Through the eating disorder inpatient service you will have :
- Access to treatment, information and resources to help support and drive your recovery goals
- Have the opportunity to participate in our holistic care program designed to improve your physical, nutritional and social health.
The Eating Disorders day program is designed for patients who are ready to begin the lengthy journey of recovery. The program is designed to meet the needs of patients suffering from Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia, EDNOS and Binge Eating Disorder, as they begin to change and challenge eating disordered thoughts and behaviours, removing the restrictions that these place on their lives. In general we do not differentiate between the individual eating disordered behaviours.
Day Program Timetable
The inpatient and day program eating disorder treatment services are available at two of our clinic locations.
