At The Banyans, we provide expert treatment for eating conditions including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating conditions and other eating disorders not otherwise defined. We likewise work with individuals who are seeking treatment for weight problems and general overindulging.
As irregularities in eating and weight control behaviours are potentially hazardous and lethal, The Banyans will constantly perform a comprehensive assessment to ensure that any resident looking for treatment for eating disorders or weight problems will be appropriately supported.
A full medical team will work carefully with our eating disorder professionals, nutritionists and coaches to make sure that a collaborated response is constantly available.
Our technique to eating disorders is person-centred, flexible and supportive. We do not excuse a ‘boot camp’ approach, nor do we support forced feeding in the case of anorexia, unless in a medical emergency situation. For this factor, a client should be ready to seek treatment and be open to our assistance. For those customers who are seriously underweight, approval from their treating physicians must be obtained prior to approval of the program.
