Eating Disorder Program for Women and Men

Eating disorders are serious, sometimes life-threatening and can affect individuals from all walks of life. There isn’t any age group, sex, race, ethnicity, or socioeconomic background that is safe from the devastating effects of eating disorders. Once an eating disorder takes hold of an individual, it is very difficult for that person to overcome the dangerous behaviors and distorted psychological thinking without professional help. Fortunately, eating disorders do not have to be forever– it is a treatable disorder that, with help, individuals can manage and go on to develop a healthy relationship with food and with their own body image.

Many eating disorders start during adolescence, but doctors and psychologists are finding that there is an increasing number of younger girls and boys and older women and men who are being diagnosed with the disorders. The sooner the diagnosis is made and treatment is begun, the better an individual’s chances are for a successful recovery.
