While every client is unique, eating disorders generally stem from a combination of emotional, social, psychological, and physical issues.
Battle Creek, MI (PRWEB) July 10, 2014
A Forever Recovery, an open-ended drug and alcohol treatment program that gets clients off to a great start and gives them a solid foundation in recovery they can believe in, has launched a new Eating Disorders section of its website at http://aforeverrecovery.com/eating-disorders/
The new section highlights:
- Different types of eating disorders listed in the Diagnostic and Statistic Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV), including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and EDNOS (Eating Disorder not Otherwise Specified)
- Common signs and symptoms of eating disorders
- Common underlying issues associated with eating disorders
- The effect of social pressure, environmental factors, and media on eating disorders
- Help and support available for those struggling with an eating disorder, or know someone who is
“While every client is unique, eating disorders generally stem from a combination of emotional, social, psychological, and physical issues,” commented A Forever Recovery’s CEO Per Wickstrom. “Surprisingly, many people aren’t aware that eating disorders are serious and often life-threatening, and in terms of the harm they do to millions of people each year, are on the same level as other, more headline-grabbing epidemics such as those to prescription opiates and alcohol.”
Added Per Wickstrom: “Another very dangerous myth we need to shatter is that eating disorders are limited to only a specific demographic. The truth is that eating disorders affect both genders and people of all ages – from pre-teens to senior citizens. My hope is that our new section will improve awareness that could do more than change lives – it could possibly save them, too.”
About A Forever Recovery:
A Forever Recovery program is an open-ended drug and alcohol treatment program that gets clients off to a great start and gives them a solid foundation in recovery they can believe in. Not every treatment methodology works for every client. Some people are very receptive to 12-step principles, whereas others are more comfortable with faith-based treatment. Cognitive approaches have excellent success, whereas others thrive within a more holistic approach. A Forever Recovery allows clients to choose from a wide range of recovery methodologies, coupled with Moral Recognition Therapy (MRT), to achieve success rates unmatched in the addiction treatment industry. The bottom line is that there is no single therapeutic approach to recovery that works for everyone… until now.
