Teen Eating Disorder Treatment
Adolescents, primarily teenagers are a population of individuals who struggle with not only teen drug abuse but eating disorder as well. During the teen years, the developmental changes, both hormonal and physical are often quick, drastic, and unexpected. Weight gain is a common physical change. Some teens may already be struggling with weight issues, prior to entering high school. Weight gain or loss is a common topic of discussion and focus for teenagers. Obsession over weight issues often results in eating disorders and compulsive addictive behaviors.
Teens often hold themselves to a standard for appearance, based on their peers and the media which results in teens behaving abnormally. We at Inspirations Teen Rehab, recognize this phenomena and have created troubled youth program, which addresses teen behavioral issues, amongst them, teenage cutting, teenage alcohol abuse and eating disorders.
Teen Eating Disorders
It is well known fact that teen boys are often trying to gain weight, as they look forward to growth spurts, and prepare for young adulthood. Sports such as wrestling and football, often increase pressure or stress for teen boys to gain or lose weight.
Teen girls are the most targeted population for marketing purposes. In advertisements, thin models promote products. Advertisements include magazines, music videos, television commercials, infomercials, billboards, and newspapers. During a time when a teen girl might be struggling with unexpected weight gain, due to hormonal changes and physical changes in height, she is also struggling with a world in which media and marketing are inescapable, and thin underweight girls are promoted as an acceptable teen image.
At Inspirations we offer eating disorder help for those teenagers who develop poor body images and attempt to cope with life problems and/or the pressure to obtain a particular weight, by reducing food and calorie intake. The focus of our eating disorder tretment is problems such as Anorexia or bulimia, where teens binge and purge, allowing an opportunity to consume food but also purging it from the body. These behaviors become addictive and compulsive. These behaviors may also become life-threatening.
