At Imani, we make the referral process as easy as possible for busy physicians and mental health professionals and consider these individuals integral parts of our collaborative eating disorder treatment team. Admissions are expedited, and we admit clients 7 days a week. Discreet lifting services are also available, as required.
Ongoing communication and progress reports are provided, to the degree and depth that the referring professional wants. We will contact you within 24 hours of admission to let you know that your patient has arrived. Prior to discharge we will provide a detailed aftercare plan, ensuring a seamless transition of care back to your services.
“I needed groups and therapy specifically orchestrated to bring down the walls that my ED had built up around me and to help me start to see myself in a different way. In other addiction centres certain rituals and ED habits around my food had gone undetected but these were keeping me enslaved.”
Imani is a comprehensive eating disorder and substance abuse treatment facility. In addition sub-acute care, we offer inpatient, residential and outpatient care. We utilise a collaborative multidisciplinary treatment approach, with meticulous case management.
Our expert medical and clinical staff are trained and experienced in a wide-variety of specialities, allowing us to provide individualised, coordinated service. We focus on evidence-based, measurable outcomes and clients with associated mental health issues receive concurrent care as part of their individualised treatment plan.
Every client receives a comprehensive medical, psychiatric and social assessment upon arrival at Imani. All of our patients also receive a nutritional analysis, to help achieve total wellness. Our team then develops a customised care plan, including specific treatment goals. Daily team meetings ensure that these plans are fluid and effective.
Our philosophy is to provide quantifiable results and clients receive the balance and intensity of individual and group therapy that meets their needs. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Schema Therapy and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy are integrated for each individual.
At each level of care, life skills practicing and relapse prevention planning are emphasised. The family support and education that is so vital to long-term success is also provided during the eating disorder treatment process.
