According to the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders, nearly 24,000,000 million people of all ages suffer from an eating disorder in America. Eating Disorders can include Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating, and Emotional Eating. In addition, nearly 50% of these individuals suffer from depression and the female population is statistically significantly more prone to develop eating disorders than men. This is why Q Health offers Eating Disorder Therapy programs for women.

  • Creation of Long-Term Treatment Plan
  • Identification of the Roots of Shame and Fear
  • Recognition of Unhealthy Eating Behaviors
  • Goal Setting for Recovery and Healing

Advertisements, movies and television create unrealistic expectations for women. The women in advertisements in fashion magazines are air brushed and morphed into creatures that in real life simply do not exist. An honest and realistic body image is necessary for true healing from an eating disorder. The compassionate team of counselors at Q Health understand the challenges that women face today with their body image and how difficult it is to conquer an eating disorder. While it is a challenge, there is hope. Hope through support and counseling and therapy sessions that are facilitated by an expert in eating disorder treatment, who is also a woman. Our program emphasizes assessment, intervention, and planning support and includes a sustainable recovery program.

While eating disorders are more prevalent in women than in men, there are still alarming rates of men that have Anorexia or Bulimia. In addition, research indicates that it is not uncommon for men with eating disorders to also have a problem with addiction. As part of the comprehensive treatment and recovery program at Q Health, eating disorder counseling and therapy programs are available for men. Our innovative Men’s Only Eating Disorder Therapy focuses on the following aspects of treatment:

  • Creation of Long-Term Treatment Plan
  • Identification of the Roots of Shame and Fear
  • Recognition of Unhealthy Eating Behaviors
  • Identification of Other Addictive Behaviors Including Excess Exercise
  • Goal Setting for Recovery and Healing
  • Develop Understanding and Self-Awareness of How Food Is Used to Handle Emotions
  • Identification of Emotional and Situational Triggers
  • Life Skills Development
  • Nutritional Counseling
  • Support System Development

The root causes for eating disorders in men varies greatly from those that women face. It is because of this that we believe in separate treatment and therapy, based on gender. The division facilitates honest and open communication while delving into the gender specific causes of eating disorders and the best treatment protocols.
