Eating Disorder Assessment

It is a brave and courageous decision to reach out for help

We know how daunting it can be to seek help for an eating disorder.

There can be a lot of uncertainty and fear associated with the thought of letting something go that, ultimately, helps to you to feel safe and in control of your day-to-day life.

But seeking help is the right thing to do. We know it’s tough, but we’ll walk alongside you, at your pace, every step of the way.

Taking steps to recovery

Our process is quick and accessible, ensuring we can help you or your loved one promptly.

Step 1

Simply reach out

At Orri, you can refer yourself or be referred by a professional.

To contact us, call or email our admissions specialists. We will organise a convenient time to talk with you about treatment and recovery.

Step 2

A conversation

Over the phone our Admissions Team will discuss your experience to understand how we can best support you.

The team will gather important information about your life to see how we might be able to help.

Step 3

Your assessment

If it sounds like our programme could help you, we will organise a virtual or in-person intake assessment. During this appointment you will meet a senior clinician who can help determine the right level of support for you at this time.

Step 4

Start your recovery

Upon agreeing your treatment programme and start date, we will allocate you a treatment team who is aligned with your needs, and prepare you for your first day.

We know this is often a time of high anxiety, so we’ll walk alongside you to ensure you’ll feel comfortable and confident about arriving at Orri.

Do I have an eating disorder?

EAT-26 is a screening measurement tool to help you determine whether you might have an eating disorder that
needs professional attention.

Importantly, this screening measure is not designed to make a diagnosis of an eating disorder or take the place of a professional consultation. There are no right or wrong answers, we would just encourage you to fill out the form accurately and honestly.

Motivation can come and go

Many people who reach out for eating disorder treatment have often thought a lot about the decision.

In fact, a whole lot of recovery work takes place before even entering treatment as it takes a lot of courage to admit that there’s a problem and then to take steps towards reaching out.

A way to understand this contemplative process is through the Stages of Change (or Transtheoretical Model of Change) developed by James Prochaska and Carlo Di Clemente.
