About Us


Located in one of the world’s most beautiful cities, Cape Town, South Africa, the Crescent Clinic Eating Disorders Units is the country’s longest established primary specialised eating disorders treatment facility, and proudly boasts the most comprehensive and experienced multidisciplinary professional team for patients suffering from anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge-eating disorder, and psychiatric-related obesity conditions. Having already assisted many thousands of eating disorder suffers on an outpatient basis, for nearly two decades our highly respected modern and dynamic inpatient treatment programme utilises only the most tried and tested techniques and modalities in maintaining a facility of truly superior international standard. The design of the inpatient programme is such that it is suitable for the numerous patients that are admitted from throughout the country and internationally.

The Crescent Clinic Eating Disorders Unit’s central aim is to help its patients reclaim their lives within a supportive and caring community, while actively participating in their own early recovery process. We will assist each patient in empowering themselves and taking responsibility in moving beyond feelings of shame, isolation and helplessness, by re-discovering their unique values, emotions and needs. In order to accomplish this, we will provide each patient with the opportunity to participate in open, respectful, and honest relationships with fellow patients and the staff in the on-going process towards a healthy sense of personal identity and well-being.
