Male Eating Disorder & Weight Control Therapy
While most eating disorder treatment programs have been centered around women with eating disorders, men can also suffer from body image distortions and may use unhealthy weight control methods. As the traditional masculine ideal varies from that of the female, male eating disorders and unhealthy weight control issues often take on a different practices with men including excessive exercise and nutritional supplement abuse. Therefore, treatment for male eating disorders has been largely overlooked in the past. Webster Wellness Professionals offers male only eating disorder treatment sessions to help address these unhealthy weight control methods.
