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.
On her last day in treatment at Mirasol's teen residence, Tori reflects on her experience at Mirasol, including a brief stay at another eating disorder treatment facility.
"Kick Your Eating Disorder's Butt!"
When my parents told me that I had to go into a residential treatment center, I was not happy. But I'm so glad I did. If you're reading this, and you're thinking about going to a treatment center, or your parents are already making you go to one, PLEASE COME. You will be the happiest you will ever be, trust me. I am in recovery and even though it's been tough, it's been so worth it. And i would recommend this place to ANYONE for help. You are worth it. Kick your eating disorder's butt and choose recovery... because it's amazing... :-)Read the Full Story

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.
