Eating Disorder Programme
At PROMIS we believe that eating disorders are symptomatic of addictive disease. The compulsive relationship with food, distorted self-image and self-hatred associated with anorexia, bulimia and overeating characterise the discomfort that drives other addictive behaviours.
We provide a nurturing, contained and friendly environment in which sufferers can learn to live free from food-obsession. We put strong emphasis on providing healthy nutritious food for our patients.
Therapy is at the centre of our programme. We find this works on multiple levels. It increases self-awareness, promotes the ability to communicate and interact successfully with others, heals shame and increases self-esteem.
The primary goal of the treatment programme at PROMIS is to provide patients with the tools to live with a healthy relationship with food and prepares each participant for re-entry into the outside world.
