The Adult Eating Disorder Service provides treatment for individuals suffering from Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa of all levels of severity. The service is based in Trasna House Lurgan with clinics in Armagh, Banbridge, Dungannon, Newry and Portadown.
The service encourages early intervention so if you feel that you need help with an Eating Disorder it is important to make an appointment with your GP who can then make a referral directly to the service.
