Eating Disorders Program

This is a specialized eating disorders treatment program that provides various levels of intervention, from least to most intensive. Treatment is delivered in a group therapy format to clients who are diagnosed with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, or eating disorder not otherwise specified. (Please note: currently, we are unable to provide treatment to patients with the diagnosis of Binge Eating Disorder).

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. How do I become involved in the program?

To begin the referral process, your family doctor will need to fill out a referral form and send it to our program by fax at 905-813-4284. Referral forms are available from the program secretary at phone # 905-813-4505. Clients must be 18 years of age or older and be a resident of Ontario. Payment for the program is covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) and a valid OHIP card (Health Card) is required. The program is voluntary only. Once we have received your referral, you will be contacted with a date and time for a new patient consultation. If this consultation confirms that you meet criteria for an eating disorder, you will be referred to the most appropriate treatment setting in our program: inpatient, day hospital, or outpatient. Alternatively, you may be referred to community resources.
