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.

Mirasol's Integrative Medical Approach

Our multidisciplinary eating disorder treatment team consists of psychiatrists, naturopaths, psychotherapists, nurses, doctors and dietitians who work closely with practitioners of alternative medicine, including neurofeedback, body therapies, Oriental medicine, trauma therapies, experiential therapies, and adventure therapy. We provide a balance of cognitive therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) as well as a variety of trauma therapies such as EMDR, EFT, TRE, and Somatic Experience.

Individualized One on One Treatment In a Healing Environment

With a 3:1 staff-client ratio, we offer extraordinary individual attention and tailor our programs to the individual client's needs. Each client has 2-4 psychotherapeutic individual sessions weekly as well as 3 groups daily.

Small, intimate residences (limited to a maximum of 10 clients) in Territorial-style homes in Southern Arizona's fabulous Sonoran Desert provide a secure and serene environment for healing.

Mirasol's Aftercare Program

We carry our relationship on with clients when they go home. They'll see their own therapists (at home) twice a week and also work with a licensed Mirasol therapist on the phone. They'll have a full year of aftercare from the time of their discharge. The wonderful thing about the aftercare with two therapists is that if one therapist sees the client beginning to struggle, she/he can get in touch with the other therapist and between them they can figure out how to keep the client out of full relapse. We have found that if all clients who discharge from the program follow their aftercare program specifically for one year, their recovery rates can be as high be as high as 85% at one year.
