One key advantage of our adult residential treatment for eating disorders is that it offers the opportunity for patients to receive comprehensive care in a supportive environment.

Inpatient (or residential) eating disorder treatment with our specialists involves admission into our specialised eating disorder hospital, where individuals receive round-the-clock care and support for their condition.
