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.

Horse Sense: Lessons from Equine Therapy

"You cannot lie to a horse. They read your energy, regardless of what you're saying." Through equine therapy, Mirasol clients practice being assertive rather than aggressive, and learn how to manage their 'people pleasing' behaviors.
