Professional Addiction & Eating Disorder Treatment

The Irish professional training institute was established in 2013, and is part of and supported by the Lois  Bridges Hospital Group which provides both residential and day care treatmentservices for all spectrums of eating disorders. Established in 2009, Lois bridges is proud to have achieved "approved centre status" from the Mental Health Commission of Ireland, of which we are both registered and inspected on an annual basis.


Our training institute aims to deliver integrated, evidence based courses of the highest quality which are both recognized and accredited by various professional bodies throughout Europe and beyond.

Through our partnerships with our international affiliates, we are consistently aware of research outcomes, developments and changing practices within the fields of eating disorders and addictions.


All our lecturers and trainers are specialist practitioners and researchers who have a wealth of knowledge and understanding in all areas of addictions and eating disorders.

Our team is committed to maintain academic excellence not just through great teaching but also through personal individual support. Class sizes are small so that everyone can contribute to discussion and debate.


Whatever training course you choose we promise you will have an interesting and thought provoking learning experience.
