Frequently Asked Questions

If you need support with an eating disorder, we're here to help. We understand that if you're taking the first steps towards recovery yourself, or if you're worried about a family member or a loved one, you're bound to have some questions along the way.

We've compiled some of our frequently asked questions below but should you need any further assistance, our caring team is available and happy to help guide you through the process.

Schoen Clinic York is an adult inpatient and outpatient service for adults experiencing eating disorders and their associated problems.

Our approach uses a recovery focussed pathway model which includes physical stabilisation, life skills, improving self-awareness and self-care and group and individual therapy sessions. We help patients to transfer those skills for long-term recovery outside of our hospital environment, preparing for a healthy and fulfilled life back in their local community.

We foster an atmosphere which is non-judgmental, caring, safe, curious and empathetic; empowering patients to explore their sense of self, their difficulties and their relationships.

We want to treat you fully and effectively so you can return to your home, family and friends as soon as possible. We constantly assess how you are getting on and we start planning for your discharge at an early stage.

We specialise in treating adults with eating disorders and their associated mental health difficulties.

£995 per night for private inpatient treatment and initial clinical assessments are complementary.

  • Full day: £550
  • One full day a week - 4 week package: £1,995
