Did you know that some 25 percent of people suffering from anorexia nervosa are men?
It’s true, yet the stigma attached to male anorexia is significant, and even when men do admit to the problem many treatment centers exclude men from treatment. One place that doesn’t is The Center • A Place of HOPE.
The Center • A Place of HOPE welcomes men suffering from anorexia, and is especially sensitive to their unique needs. Thus we have a program just for men.
Symptoms of male anorexia nervosa include:
- Poor body image
- Decreased sexual desire
- Performing food rituals
- Thinning hair
- Low body weight
- Obsessive compulsive behavior
- Eating alone
Anorexia in males is more difficult to identify, and it can also be more dangerous. This is because males with anorexia lose body tissue, which can be extremely detrimental to the body.
A Place of Hope’s whole-person approach to care addresses the unique needs of male anorexia patients. If you or a loved one is suffering, move past the stigma and receive the help you need.
Finally, a place where men with eating disorders can receive the help they need. It all begins with you filling out the quick and easy form on the right side of this page.
