Anorexia nervosa is a complex eating disorder and requires an assortment of resources for successful treatment. Women struggling with anorexia have an intense fear of gaining weight and often diet obsessively, eating very small amounts of food. Anorexics starve themselves even when they are dangerously thin and are preoccupied with thoughts about body weight, food, calories and exercise. Anorexia affects both the minds and bodies of women. Anorexia often begins during the adolescent years and getting help is extremely important. With professional treatment recovery is possible. At Center For Discovery Fairfield, we provide the therapeutic environment that women need to experience emotional and behavioral growth. Research has shown that family involvement in the treatment process is critical in successful treatment outcomes. At Center For Discovery Fairfield, family plays a central role and is involved in treatment as well as providing a close support system for the recovery of the resident.
Women struggling with anorexia use the manipulation of food by not eating as a way to soothe themselves. The manipulation of food by not eating can also offer a distraction from the emotions and fear in their life that feels overwhelming. Many of the signs and symptoms of anorexia, including thinning hair, dry skin, over-exercising, feeling cold with a low body temperature, and low body weight are similar in many cases of anorexia. While signs and symptoms may be similar, the underlying factors that contributed to the development of anorexia are different for every woman. Understanding this distinction is very important in getting women with anorexia the help they need and deserve.
