Veterans Treatment

Unfortunately, these experiences may lead to the development of eating disorders. Virtue Recovery Las Vegas – Eating Disorders offers a specialized veterans treatment program specifically designed to provide support for veterans struggling with eating disorders. While not every veteran has been through traumatic experiences, we still take a trauma-informed approach to all we do. This helps us provide a safe, supportive environment so the clients in our care can focus on repairing their relationship with food and their bodies.

Our treatment programs are tailored to the individual and feature evidence-based therapies that can help veterans process past experiences, address underlying issues, and make meaningful changes. Lasting recovery and a healthier mind-body connection are possible, and we are dedicated to helping veterans find balance and peace.

Eating Disorders and Veterans

Veterans often face unique challenges that can lead to eating disorders, such as combat-related trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), military sexual trauma, and difficult transitions home. The focus on physical fitness can also be a trigger for some. These factors can be compounded with factors like family dynamics and even a genetic predisposition towards an eating disorder, making them difficult to address alone.

Eating disorders don’t only impact women. Men also develop eating disorders, yet their stories often don’t get the attention they deserve. Veterans of any gender identity can struggle with an eating disorder, and eating disorder treatment for veterans is designed to provide the specialized help that is needed.
