Eating Disorders and Cross Addiction | Safe Harbor Treatment Center for Women


Eating Disorders and Cross Addiction | Safe Harbor Treatment Center for Women – Safe Harbor Treatment Center for Women is nationally recognized as the premier Women’s Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment Facility in Southern California. Women With Eating Disorders Eating disorders are a big health care problem in the United States. Becoming a woman is filled with many challenges, especially in this day and age.

How can women escape these images and messages without having them shape our own perceptions of how we should look? The world seems to think that we can completely control our own body size and it is in our power to achieve this ideal body image. It is normal for some of us to have feelings of inadequacy and not feel completely confident with our bodies.
