What does the eating disorders daycare programme for adults at Schoen Clinic York include?

Adults on the daycare programme for eating disorders at Schoen Clinic York attend our highly specialised hospital for a set number of full or half days each week to receive support and therapy from our specialists. This type of specialised therapy is especially beneficial for those with eating disorders who still need some ongoing, structured therapy but don't need 24-hour or inpatient care.

We recognise that each person is unique and that a number of circumstances may lead to the development of an eating disorder. By providing you with the tools you need to overcome your eating disorder and the encouragement you require to stick with it, our goal is to aid in your recovery. At Schoen Clinic York, you will receive a tailored treatment plan that is personalised for you based on your unique needs and concerns.

We provide a wide range of therapeutic approaches, such as mindfulness, art-informed therapy, dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) informed groups, and DBT informed groups. One-on-one and group treatment will often be combined in the therapy you receive while attending our adult daycare programme.

Our private treatment programme for adults with eating disorders is recommended when people require more intensive help to overcome the impact of disordered eating. This might be at the start of an eating disorder or later on in the journey, when intensive support can be used to break bad habits that families have struggled with for some time.

What can I expect from the specialised daycare programme for adults with eating disorders?

Adults undergoing eating disorder treatment in a daycare setting at Schoen Clinic York have access to a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals, including nutritionists, therapists, mental health nurses and psychiatric providers, who can help them address both the physical and emotional aspects of their condition.

Moreover, the social interaction available in the adult daycare programme can be incredibly beneficial for individuals with eating disorders. For many, eating disorders lead to feelings of isolation and loneliness, which can exacerbate the condition.

By providing a supportive and nurturing environment in which participants can interact and engage with others, our adult eating disorder daycare programme offers an opportunity to combat these feelings and build a sense of community and connection.

In addition, our adult daycare programme in York can help individuals develop practical skills and strategies for managing their eating disorder symptoms.

Our specialised nutritionists can provide guidance on healthy meal planning, while our eating disorder therapists can work with patients to develop coping mechanisms for dealing with anxiety and other emotional triggers. These skills can be carried forward into other areas of participants' lives, improving their overall quality of life and reducing the risk of relapse.
