The Eating Disorders and Addiction Clinic (EDAC) offers several specialized outpatient treatments for both men and women. One stream assists clients who have substance abuse problems accompanied by an eating disorder. We also have groups for individuals who believe they are addicted to food, who may or may not struggle with substance use problems.
The treatment approaches involve a variety of modalities, which in addition to weekly group sessions may include one or more of the following:
- weekly one-hour individual psychotherapy sessions
- recommendations to meet with a dietitian
- telephone consultation.
The program provides integrated concurrent treatment for both eating disorders and substance use disorders. Clients commit to attend treatment for a minimum of 10 weeks to one year. Family issues (support, education, intervention) are addressed with individual family members as needed.
The treatment program involves weekly group sessions and may include individual sessions depending on the treatment stream. The initial assessment process involves 2 to 3 appointments that will be booked as soon as possible. While waiting for your assessment, please maintain contact with your GP and explore other support options.
