Men face unique challenges when it comes to identifying, understanding, and getting help for eating disorders. Eating disorders are more likely to be misdiagnosed or even missed altogether in men. Though boys and men face the same pressures to achieve an ideal body image, they also face the stigma that comes with having a disorder that’s typically associated with women and that requires psychological treatment.

Our outpatient treatment center in Orange County for male eating disorders takes a gender-sensitive approach that recognizes and responds to the needs of men.

Our licensed, qualified mental health therapists provide male-specific treatment for a range of eating disorders including:
At Pacific Solstice, we take into consideration each patient’s personal history, cultural background, and biological factors when creating a customized treatment plan. As part of our treatment approach, our therapists use a dual-diagnosis methodology to address the underlying psychological, mental, and emotional issues that contribute to the disorder.
In many cases, men with eating disorders also struggle with depression, anxiety, or obsessive-compulsive disorder. Addressing these mental health issues is critical to recovery for the whole person. Our eating disorder patients also receive group therapy in a small, supportive cohort of other men that provides an added level of comfort and acceptance.
Male eating disorders can also lead to serious health challenges including osteoporosis, fatigue, compromised immune systems, higher risk of falls and accidents, and low sex drive. We’ll develop a comprehensive treatment plan for restoring physical as well as mental wellbeing, including nutrition guidance.
