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 Eating Disorder Programs
Intensive Outpatient Eating Disorder Program (IOP) for adult women

Partial Hospitalization Progam (PHP)
- Also known as Mirasol's Transitional Living Center (TLC) for adult women
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.
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.
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.
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.
Cooking Class at Mirasol
Sit in on a cooking class Mirasol Super Chef Dee O'Leary, who provides a hearty helping of practical kitchen skills such as prep work, knife safety and the importance of healthy fats, seasoned with entertaining tips for "getting down with your food", letting vegetables "party in the pan" and judicious use of "aerial assault".
