  • Discharge planning. 

Who we see

  • Individuals with symptoms consistent with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and other specified feeding and eating disorders. Please note that a formal diagnosis is not a requirement for referral.  
  • Directing a referral to the transition program could be based on: 
    • Preference for the for type of service as well as appropriateness of the service. For instance, at times, you may prefer one type of service, but you would benefit more from another service. You may prefer individual therapy, but would benefit more from group therapy, in which case a more appropriate referral will be discussed. 
    • A concern that you may not meet the criteria for an eating disorder diagnosis, or 
    • a lack of readiness for the HOPE Program or inpatient program. 
    • Clients will need to have continued medical monitoring as they participate in outpatient services and upon discharge.
