Canada’s largest inpatient Eating Disorder Program offers evidence-based, personalized treatment to individuals 16 and older. The program focuses on normalizing eating and activity and interrupting eating disorder symptoms.
Homewood Health has a long history as a leader in treating eating disorders, mental health, trauma, addiction and concurrent disorders. Our program for eating disorders is the largest in Canada.
Homewood Health offers two flexible inpatient streams:
Eating Disorder Program patients are assessed at intake and discharge using several tools, including Eating Disorders Examinations Version Q (EDE-Q). Based on the data, from September 2019 to May 2021, 90% of patients were below the clinical threshold for an eating disorder at the end of the program. In addition, patients displayed positive improvement rates for the anxiety scale, depression severity index, self-care index, change in care needs, depression and functioning, relationships, self-harm, emotional lability, psychosis, and substance use.
We also monitor patient satisfaction regularly to assist with quality control and ensure patients receive the highest quality care. Based on the recent data collected, 83% of patients state the program has met their needs.
Homewood has extensive experience in treating complex and co-occurring disorders. Often, individuals may suffer from multiple conditions, which can complicate recovery if not identified and addressed. Our clinical approach is designed to help build an understanding of how different issues may affect the individual and employ evidence-based treatment that provides the foundation, knowledge and tools necessary to address these conditions and help build the skills required to sustain long-term recovery.
At Homewood Health we recognize that family and/or friends are an important part of a patient’s social support system, and family/friend involvement is determined based on the patient’s individual needs.
If you feel that someone’s mental health issue or substance use is impacting their ability to function well, there are ways to initiate the conversation and show that you care.
