Castlewood treats men with all types of eating disorders age 16 and above. Our approach is tailored to meet the specific needs of each client. Men are housed in the same residence as women with single bedrooms. Men participate in groups and meals with women.
Treatment for men is both similar and different than for women. While some men have very comparable developmental pathways or “causes” to their eating disorder as women, others do not. Each client must explore the issues which gave rise to the development of their eating disorder. Most clients have issues with gender identity and sexuality. Gender and sexuality issues for men can be quite different than for women and must be explored in a safe environment. Family dynamics, stigma and body image concerns for men with eating disorders often are very different than for females.
Our staff understand these differences and work with each client to create a therapeutic treatment plan that is unique for his needs. We will work with you to address your full clinical picture and help you reclaim your life.
