With the hardships on professional models being what they are, there is certainly a need for counseling and treatment when the pressure proves to be too much. Many people have meltdowns and mental crises due to the stress that professional modeling entails. In order to recover and regain mental health, professional models need assistance from people who understand what their careers put them through in order to return with strength and dignity. Fortunately, this type of treatment exists in the form of rehabilitation and counseling.
The treatment that professional models receive in rehabilitation will initially be about their physical health and will ultimately be about their mental health. The first focus is on restoring their bodily health, or getting it on the mend at least. So many disorders and addictions that models struggle with get back to their bodies and what is expected of them. Many starve themselves or become addicted to weight suppressing chemicals, all of which need to be corrected. A medically supervised cleanse or detox will restore the body to its original chemistry and begin to correct the individual’s health problems.
What follows the detox is the psychological portion of the treatment. All disorder and addictions have roots in psychological problems, and eradicating them is the only way of permanently defeating them. Some disorders and addictions take a long duration of time to fully recover from and they may not be completely eradicated before rehab treatment is finished. Their source, however, will be discovered through professional counseling and psychological analysis, which is the first necessary step. Through readings, exercises, therapies, counseling and recreation, the individual will slowly regain their identity and their mental health.
Even once the treatment program is complete, the individual will still have access to various disorder and addiction treatment services, such as support groups and sponsors. The success rate of recovery from addictions and disorders in the world of professional modeling is much greater for those who committed to rehabilitation.
