Men’s Program for Eating Disorders – Anorexia Help, Bulimia Help, Binge Eating Help, and other Eating Disorders

That is not the case here at The Center where we have a program just for men that incorporates treatment specific to their unique needs when suffering with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa or binge eating disorder. So, if you are a male with an eating disorder, there is Hope for You!
Eating Disorder Books by Dr. Gregory Jantz ~ Founder of The Center • A Place of HOPE
Who We Are
Twenty-five years ago, eating disorder specialist Dr. Gregg Jantz had a vision of Hope. Trained in counseling, he looked at thetreatment options available and realized something was missing. In all areas of need from eating disorders to depression hurting people went to a doctor, a psychiatrist, a counselor, and a pastor, going from place to place looking for Hope, help and healing from their pain. At each junction, they received help for a piece of the puzzle, but that puzzle often remained unsolved.
Instead of settling for fractured care, Dr. Jantz created The Center • A Place of HOPE. The Center is a world-renowned dually licensed facility specializing in whole-person care. There, people find comprehensive, coordinated care from treatment team using a whole-person model “inspired healthcare” addressing medical, physical, psychological, emotional, nutritional, fitness and spiritual factors involved in recovery.

For adolescents and older teens who need assistance in continuing their academic studies while at The Center for eating disorders recovering from anorexia, bulimia or binge eating, we can arrange for a state-certified teacher as an academic tutor.

Phone Follow-Up For Anorexia Help, Bulimia Help and Binge Eating Help, and other Eating Disorders
Upon completion of each recovery program for eating disorders, weekly telephone sessions for 3-6 months are recommended. This is beneficial to recovery and relapse prevention of eating disorders, solidifying recovery skills and providing a venue to discuss ongoing challenges and successes with anorexia recovery, bulimia recovery, and compulsive overeating recovery.
