Anorexia and Men

When you say the word, “eating disorder” most people think of a phase or an adolescent girl struggling with anorexia or bulimia.

However, eating disorders are not a phase, they are classified as an addiction just like drug and alcohol abuse. As well, eating disorders don’t just affect women. Of the 24 million people in the U.S.A. with eating disorders, 1 out of every 10 of them is a man.

If you or someone you know is struggling with an eating disorder seek treatment immediately. Eating disorders are the most deadly of all mental illnesses. The sooner the addiction is treated the more promising recovery is. The longer one waits, mental and physical complications become an obstacle to recovery.

Recovering from substance use disorders is a challenging journey that feels more doable in an environment that tends to each individual’s complex needs and strengths. Our goal is to foster a treatment experience that is built on compassion, hope, and caring, and fueled by excellence in the provision of evidence-based and trauma-informed care.
