Care for the family involved
An eating disorder affects everyone around you. That’s why our Family Programme is an integral part of Residential Care. This programme provides your family and loved ones with tools to support your recovery and helps you to improve your relationships. Family and friends don't always know what to do in these situations, which is why such a programme is enormously helpful.
Our Family Programme starts from an early stage in Residential Care. During the course of the treatment we invite your family for a clinical visit from 3 to 5 days to play a part in your progress. Our Family Programme kicks off with online interaction at the beginning of treatment followed by on-site individual counselling, family sessions and interactive psycho-education.
Through the Family Programme, family and loved ones have the opportunity to establish new ways of communicating, as they explore their feelings and needs. We help you and your relatives set healthy boundaries, rebuild intimacy and resolve problems that originate from a lack of communication.
Relapse, whilst common, is avoidable. This is why it is vital that you and your family come together to discuss vulnerabilities and solutions, so we can create a communal relapse plan that will help you after your treatment.
Overcoming the geographical distance, the Family Programme already begins from the start of the treatment through our online platform.
