BridgePoint Center for Eating Disorders

Information:

BridgePoint Center for Eating Disorders, a provincial resource, provides program options that include intensive rehabilitation, recovery and healing for people who are experiencing eating disorders.

Programs:

The program is holistic in approach. The perspective at BridgePoint is that  eating disorders are coping mechanisms that also present a very serious health risk. They replace healthy ways of dealing with issues related to stressful and traumatic life experience and personal conflicts. Persons with eating disorders often disassociate from their feelings and consequently do not have a clear sense of self.

In the recovery process, the person with an eating disorder develops an understanding of the issues underlying the eating disorder and how the eating disorder is related to unexpressed feelings and personal pain. The transition to better ways of coping with life stresses and healthier living is normally a lengthy and highly individualized process that requires continual self-discovery.

The role of BridgePoint is to support self-discovery, as well as skill building, in the transition from letting go of old, unhealthy life patterns to discovering a variety of new and healthy choices in how to respond to the challenges of life. This support is provided in a program with three sequential modules that symbolize the process of building a bridge to recovery.
