About Cape Recovery Eating Disorder Treatment
The biggest fear for me as an addict in recovery and a nurse with experience in the addiction field is my clients who seek help from us for their eating disorder issues. Treating eating disorders is a complex thing and there is a worrying trend here in Cape Town for mainstream rehabs to take on Eating Disorder cases locally and from overseas when they simply don't have the knowledge or are not equipped to provide everything that these people need for their recovery. This is putting lives at risk so we had to take action and at least try to do something about it.
The journey of recovery from any eating disorder is a complex one and each person must be treated as an individual with a care plan adopted specifically for them. There are always other factors to consider and other co-existing issues be it addiction or mental health and without correct holistic treatment at this stage, the problems will always return.
