About Lois Bridges
Lois Bridges is an eating disorder treatment center that provides inpatient, day, and outpatient services for the treatment of all eating disorders. They specialize in the treatment of anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorders in adults and adolescents. The organization was founded in 2010 and continues to meet the quality care expectations of the Mental Health Commission of Ireland.
Clients are provided quality care from a range of medical and mental health professionals in addition to nutritional support. Under their care, clients address their eating disorder habits and form new skills through group and individual support. Clients can participate in 1-on-1 therapy, daily group therapy, and family therapy. Clients’ daily group meetings provide a supportive and educational environment to discuss related topics such as body image, food problems, weight issues, interpersonal relationships, meal planning, and more. Lois Bridges also treats clients and their families through psychoeducation in their family education programme.
Individual therapies provided include the Maudsley Model of Anorexia Nervosa Treatment for Adults (MANTRA), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT), and Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET).
Additional evidence-based practices provided are expressive mind and body therapies, art psychotherapy, mindfulness techniques, guided imagery therapy, and the creation of a Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP). Clients are given an individual dietician for nutritional therapy.
Lois Bridges encourages clients to pursue their personal hobbies, and regular outings such as trips around Dublin, shopping, movies, and eating out are all part of life at the center. During treatment, clients stay at the center’s large home in the coastal village of Dublin. On-site amenities include shared or private rooms, outdoor seating and dining, and a garden.
