Eating Disorders In South Africa
Bethesda Addiction Treatment Centre collaborates with and refers through to the other highly acclaimed teams of specialists for Eating Disorders in South Africa at Montrose Manor in Cape Town.
Bethesda also maintains close relationships with various male and female clinical psychologists and psychiatrists along the Garden Route, in the event of problems extending beyond the addiction into an Eating Disorder. Each client is assessed by Dr J. Olivier, Bethesda’s consulting GP.
“Dr O” specializes in addictions and personality/psychiatric disorders and will refer a client on to the relevant specialist wherever he feels to be appropriate and necessary.
Our on-site clinical staff at the Bethesda Alcohol and Addiction Treatment Centre therefore comprises of addiction specialists, nursing staff, clinical social worker and psychotherapists only. Medical, psychiatric, and psychological requirements are met individually, as and when necessary, as supplementary benefits of Bethesda’s addiction treatment programme. This prevents diversionary tactics of clients requesting attention aside from their addiction treatment programme.
