Men’s Program

pool table in a men's eating disorder treatment programAnyone can be affected by an eating disorder, regardless of gender, age, background, or body type. Men are particularly vulnerable to undiagnosed and untreated eating disorders. Their symptoms often go unrecognized by those around them. Eating disorders can be connected to other mental health conditions, can be exacerbated by stress, and can lead to long-term physical and emotional concerns if left untreated—but with the right help, recovery is possible. Our men’s eating disorder treatment program offers compassionate, trauma-informed care to help our clients repair their relationships with food and themselves.

At Virtue Recovery Las Vegas – Eating Disorders, we believe that each individual has a unique journey to recovery. We offer comprehensive, evidence-based assessment and treatment to help each of our clients make the changes they need.

How Eating Disorders Can Impact Men

While the media portrayals of eating disorders mostly focus on women and girls, men can and do struggle with eating disorders. What compounds this issue is that eating disorders in men are often underdiagnosed and misdiagnosed. When men show signs of an eating disorder, it’s sometimes labeled as depression, anxiety, or obsessive-compulsive disorder. While these mental health conditions can co-occur with eating disorders, it’s important to recognize the condition correctly.

  • Some of the signs of eating disorders in men can include:
  • A preoccupation with dieting, food, or body weight
  • Irregular meal patterns and extreme dieting
  • Excessive exercise or strict bodybuilding regimens
  • Extreme body image concerns, including steroid abuse
  • Isolation from friends or family
  • Changes in mood or behavior, such as irritability or low self-esteem

Taking the first step of reaching out for help takes courage, but you are not alone. Our men’s eating disorder treatment program will meet you where you are to help you get to a healthier place.

What to Expect in Our Men’s Eating Disorder Treatment Program

At Virtue Recovery Las Vegas – Eating Disorders, we understand that overcoming an eating disorder takes time and requires patience and dedication. That’s why we tailor our men’s eating disorder treatment program to meet the needs of each client. We offer individual therapy, group therapy, nutritional counseling, and more.

A primary focus of eating disorder treatment for men in our center is discovering the underlying causes of eating disorders. These can include:

  • Family dynamics – Unhealthy familial patterns can contribute to eating disorders, such as parental pressure to be thin or disordered eating behavior in a parent.
  • Emotional concerns – Anxiety, depression, and stress can lead to an increase in disordered eating patterns.
  • Societal influences – The media’s focus on physical appearance can reinforce an unhealthy relationship with food and fitness.
  • Traumatic experiences – Disordered eating habits can be a way to feel a sense of control or comfort.

Our program helps clients stabilize their eating patterns, listen to their body’s cues, and decrease food-related stress. We also provide the support our clients need to address underlying mental health conditions and adjust to long-term recovery.
