While it is widely known that women suffer from the symptoms of anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge-eating disorder, it is important to recognize that men also battle these forms of disordered eating as well.
At Harmony Point Treatment Centers, we do not discriminate against the treatment needs of males who struggle with eating disorders and are proud to offer programming options that cater to adolescent and adult males who are afflicted with these conditions. Our partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programs supply specialized treatment that addresses the many contributing factors that ultimately cause males to engage in the destructive psychological and behavioral patterns that are cornerstone to eating disorders. Additionally, our programs arm our male clients with the recovery skills needed to prevent relapse and sustain healthy mindsets and lifestyles long after completing care with us.
Carolina House and Center for Hope of the Sierras offer this highly specialized treatment for males under the umbrella of Harmony Point Treatment Centers. Every adolescent and adult male who comes to these providers for treatment is viewed as a unique individual who possesses various strengths, needs, and hopes for the future. Our staff of qualified and trained professionals caters treatment to these aspects of our clients’ lives and puts forth every effort to ensure that the dignity of our clients is preserved the entire time they are healing with us.
Our distinguished outpatient treatment options can be used as a means of stepping down from a higher level of care or used as a first step towards lasting recovery from anorexia, bulimia, or binge-eating disorder. The following programming options are available for adolescent and adult males at these exemplary treatment centers:
Partial Hospitalization Program: Men and women, aged 17 and older can partake in Carolina House’s partial hospitalization program (PHP) at the center located in Raleigh, North Carolina. This excellent option for care supplies treatment for those individuals grappling with eating disorders, as well as co-occurring mental health conditions and substance use disorders. Individual therapy sessions, check-ins with a therapist, and family sessions are held weekly in this innovative program. Additionally, group therapy is held seven days per week and includes groups such as Food & Feelings, DBT, Integrated Health, and other groups intended to foster lasting recovery. Carolina House’s PHP also offers medication management services and a variety of experiential therapy opportunities that are designed to help clients develop skills as they navigate this program.
Intensive Outpatient Program: Men and women who partake in Carolina House’s intensive outpatient program (IOP) located in Raleigh, North Carolina will have access to compassionate staff members who are steadfast in their devotion to helping clients recover from their disordered patterns of eating and psychological distress. Within this IOP, men and women, aged 17 and older, can have either one individual or family therapy session each week, participate in various group therapy opportunities, reap the benefits of engaging in experiential therapies, and meet with a psychiatrist if medication is needed to manage the symptoms of co-occurring mental health conditions.

Partial Hospitalization Program: Designed for males and females, aged 14 and older, Center for Hope’s partial hospitalization program (PHP) incorporates individual, family, group, and experiential therapies into its programming. Clients benefit from the expertise of staff who are qualified to care for any type of eating disorder, as well as any co-occurring mental health or substance use disorders. This programming option also offers treatment for individuals who are suffering from diabulimia and allows clients to have access to medication management services when they are needed. Lastly, this center’s PHP supplies supported meals and outings in which clients can practice the skills they have learned while in treatment.
