Private short-stay inpatient options for adults with eating disorders (18+ years)

At Schoen Clinic York, we understand the difficulties and complexity of treating eating disorders such OSFED, bulimia nervosa, and anorexia nervosa. Our experienced multidisciplinary team of eating disorder specialists is committed to supporting individuals in need.

One of the main goals of our short-term inpatient stays is to offer early intervention to lessen the impact of eating disorders and, ideally, avoid their escalation.

By providing private short-term inpatient stays, we create a safe, focused environment to aid in slowing the progression of the eating disorder as privately-funded patients can access our care at an earlier stage of the eating disorder.

Our aim is to provide a safe and supportive space where adults can rest and heal physically and emotionally, laying the foundation for a sustainable recovery journey.
