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.

Frequently Asked Questions
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.
