Eating Disorders are progressive and debilitating mental health conditions that can affect people of every occupation and status. Gladstones provides integrative, specialist treatment for eating disorders including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, orthorexia nervosa, binge eating disorder, obesity and other eating disorders not otherwise specified, whether the problem be mild or very serious. Eating abnormalities and weight control behaviours left to continue over time can cause serious nutritional imbalances and are potentially life-threatening. To put things in perspective, Anorexia has the highest mortality rate of any psychiatric disorder.
The treatment programme will initially focus on stabilising the client’s health to a safe level. Following this we focus on dealing with the mental side of the illness. Our clients will be given access to a wide range of traditional and Complementary Therapies. The exact combinations will be tailored by our supportive treatment team according to the specific requirements of each client. Later in the program we will attempt to involve family members and significant others in the recovery, we find educating the family about eating disorders can assist in the aftercare program being more successful.
Our treatment staff will review the clients progress on a daily basis to ensure that the most appropriate clinical response is provided at all times.
