Albuquerque, New Mexico -
Icarus Behavioral Health, an alcohol and drug rehab facility in Albuquerque, NM, is pleased to announce that they also offer eating disorder treatment New Mexico residents can go to, aside from addiction treatment programs. They want to stress that they have been able to demonstrate their high efficacy and expertise when it comes to providing eating disorder treatment, from anorexia nervosa to bulimia and binge eating. Whatever the eating issue, their staff have the expertise and the experience to help clients overcome their problems with food and finally lead a healthier life.
A spokesperson for Icarus Behavioral Health says, “Eating disorders are serious mental illnesses plaguing the younger generations of today’s world. The struggle to be the fittest, the skinniest, and most physically desirable is a huge competition between men and women alike. It is unhealthy for these young girls to be obsessed with Instagram, Tik-Tok, and Facebook, only to believe that they are ugly because they do not have the features present in just about every girl blasted all over the internet. Fortunately, Icarus Behavioral Health has many different treatment options when it comes to eating disorders, and if you or a loved one is struggling to find treatment, calling or texting Icarus could be your first step in recovery.”
There are several types of eating disorders. Anorexia nervosa is a condition where the affected person avoids foods, severely limits food intake, or eats very small quantities of particular foods. And while they are actually dangerously underweight, they still view themselves as overweight. In bulimia nervosa, the affected person has frequent and recurrent episodes of eating unusually large quantities of food. And each binge eating is followed by forced vomiting, fasting, use of diuretics or laxatives, excessive exercise, or a combination of these behaviors. There is also the binge eating disorder where people lose control over the amount of food eaten but unlike people with bulimia, these episodes are not followed by purging or trying to get rid of the calorie intake, which results in their being obese or overweight. There is also the avoidant restrictive food intake disorder or ARFID, which is characterized by selective eating and limiting food intake. However, unlike people with anorexia, they don’t have a distorted fear of gaining weight.
They recommend that those who are suffering from an eating disorder consider the services they offer at Icarus Behavioral Health. Meanwhile, they also offer treatment for addiction Santa Fe residents may be suffering from. Being aware of the rise of addiction in nearby Santa Fe, they have provided a resource for people who are struggling with a substance use disorder in Santa Fe, Taos, Espanola, and other places in the Northern parts of New Mexico. They provide a holistic rehab with a full complement of other kinds of treatment strategies to offer a great choice for treatment for all residents of New Mexico. One such method is art therapy. It is important to note that the subjective nature of art therapy allows patients to express themselves in a variety of ways as a way to help them cope with any undesirable feelings by processing them in unconventional ways.
Icarus Behavioral Health had established as its goal to become the leading substance abuse treatment facility for the people of New Mexico. Today, they have reached their goal of achieving such leadership status in behavioral healthcare by providing the best possible tailor-fitted and evidence-based treatment for a broad range of substance use and mental health disorders. They have also taken advantage of the intrinsic benefits offered by the astounding views of the natural attractions found in New Mexico and the Southwestern United States as a way to enhance and augment their clients’ experiences as they move onwards on their journey towards recovery. Because of their in-depth knowledge regarding the specific needs of their community, in Santa Fe and Albuquerque, and also all throughout the Southwest, they have been able to serve as a vital resource for maternal mental wellness or mental health.
