Mirasol Eating Disorder Recovery Centers
Alternative Treatment for Anorexia, Bulimia and Binge Eating
Mirasol is a residential eating disorder center dedicated to integrative treatment of anorexia, bulimia and binge eating. We believe that eating disorders are the result of chronic stress and trauma, and emphasize therapies that have proven successful in the treatment of other stress-related conditions.
Instead of focusing on suppressing eating disorder symptoms, we identify the root of the problem and develop new ways of communicating and coping that restore and maintain overall balance. We believe that the skills we teach are more effective and longer lasting than restrictive protocols, and provide the opportunity to practice those skills in a safe environment that supports change. Mirasol clients rediscover normal eating with individual meal plans and guidance from our staff dietitians.
Breaking the Silence: A mother struggling to save her daughter's life becomes a powerful advocate for the Anna Westin Act
We are so proud of Emaleigh and her family! After years of struggling in silence, Emaleigh's mother, Lynda Downey, decided go public when her insurance company refused to cover the cost of Ema's continued treatment at Mirasol. She traveled to Washington, D.C., last month to advocate for the Anna Westin Act, which would mandate better insurance coverage for eating disorders, and took part MOM March Against Eating Disorders on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol. Seth Moulton, her local Congressman, said he has signed on as a co-sponsor of the Westin Act "due to the advocacy of Linda Downey."Full Story
