Those suffering from anorexia (Nervosa) are often obsessed with not gaining weight and often starve themselves in various ways. Often, this can lead to a condition called body dysmorphia where one becomes obsessed with real, or unreal, imperfections of one’s body. Anyone experiencing these kinds of addictions can “never be thin enough, and, even though they may outwardly be extremely underweight and beautiful, inflict extreme damage to themselves in an erroneous effort to fix perceived problems.
Anorexic habits often include restricting calories, excessive exercise, taking diet pills, purging, or eating non-digestible substances as food replacements in order to lose as much weight as possible, in the shortest amount of time possible. These behaviors often lead to hospitalization, chronic illness, and even death. We are here to help. It is never too early or too late to address these devastating behaviors. We provide confidential individual, group, family, or couples counseling as it relates the overcoming these challenges.
