What is Anorexia Nervosa?
Anorexia nervosa is a psychological disorder characterised by self-starvation, very often excessive exercise, and weight loss. Anorexia nervosa is subcategorised into restrictive (starvation) and purging (including bingeing and purging or excessive exercise). While it has psychological origins, it also obviously affects physical wellbeing.
Imani’s Anorexia Nervosa Services
Our comprehensive inpatient program provides clients with a safe and supportive environment which aids clients healing.
We have found that many of our clients suffering with anorexia nervosa have responded well to our intensive outpatient programme.
Programs at Imani are unique, feature rich evidence-based treatment designed to take clients from the beginning phase of treatment (primary care) up to the final reintegration phase (sober living).
To engage, embrace and enjoy life are the three gifts of recovery which we wish to impart to each client who enters Imani.
“When I first arrived at Imani I felt hopeless and defeated by my eating disorder. Imani turned my life around. I learnt how to live again and believe I deserved recovery. With the guidance of compassionate and dedicated counsellors I found recovery. I learnt tools and new ways to cope with the daily challenges that used to baffle me. I am so grateful for Imani for being such an integral part of my journey towards a healthy and fulfilled life free from my eating disorder.” – Caroline (eating disorder)
“I was referred to Imani by my counsellor from an addiction treatment centre where I had landed up in desperation after my fourth alcohol and drug relapse. I had spent 4 years in the rooms of AA, NA and OA and would have periods of clean time, but I could never find lasting abstinence. My biggest struggle was with my eating disorder, which completely ruled my life and had me at the point where I felt recovery from it was impossible for me.” – Linda N
“I was moved from a secondary care facility to Imani which changed my life. Due to the team’s dedication and support I am now clean for two years this month. The love and care from the team I shall never forget. Together the Imani team truly are remarkable and without them I wouldn’t have my life back. I am very grateful for all that they have done for me.” – Heroin 23
