The Phoenix Centre provides specialist treatment for young people aged between 13-18, with complex eating disorders.
At the centre we view eating disorders, particularly anorexia nervosa as chronic illnesses. While recovery is usual, we know this tends to take a long time therefore our goal of treatment is to help young people improve the degree to which they can control their illness, rather than be controlled by it. This allows for more “normal” family, social and educational experiences and reduces the risk of young people being “lost” to mainstream life.
