I came to Montrose after having 8 weeks inpatient treatment in the UK. This was a very hard decision for me to make as I have two children and a husband, however I can honestly say this is the best decision of my life. I arrived here very scared and initially upset at all the boundaries that were in place. This, however has been the key to my recovery. It has given me the freedom around food that I thought I would never ever be able to have again. The staff here are very good at what they do and although I initially found it hard to trust the process I can honestly say that this process can be trusted.
The actual setting of Montrose Manor is beautiful as is the whole of Cape Town. There is opportunity while here to explore which is a life experience in itself.
I would strongly recommend Montrose to anyone with any type of eating disorder. The therapy has been brilliant and the tools and coping strategies i have learnt here will help me in all aspects of life
