An Integrative Eating Disorder Treatment Program for Adolescents

Mirasol's adolescent eating disorder treatment program treats the whole person — mind, body, and spirit. Our program is small — only eight beds — which allows us to tailor our programs to individual client needs.

Upon admission, each teen receives a thorough medical, emotional, psychiatric, educational, developmental, nutritional and social assessment by Mirasol clinicians. A multidisciplinary treatment team including physicians, psychiatrists, psychotherapists, nurses, dietitians and practitioners of alternative medicine work together to develop a treatment plan for your son or daughter based on their presenting issues and individual needs and goals. On a weekly basis, clients meet with and their treatment teams to set goals and monitor progress. Decisions about medication are made collaboratively with the teen, the family and the psychiatrist.

The staff works closely with the families or primary caregivers to help the teen integrate new behaviors and skills. They gain confidence, learn personal responsibility, recover from eating disorder behaviors, and eventually make a smooth transition home with an intensive aftercare plan in place.

Teens participate in group therapy, which includes psycho-educational groups, process groups and daily life skills groups.

Daily life skills groups include time management, cooking, menu planning and shopping. Most important are the skills in problem solving — the cognitive steps they can use to handle any situation that arises. It's Mirasol's goal to equip your teen with the skills and tools he or she needs to live successfully in the world.

The teen program combines an expansive array of outdoor activities with a strong inward-focused therapeutic program. Sports include challenge courses, hiking, camping, caving and backpacking. Weekends are structured with recreational and social activites that will reintroduce "fun" into your teen's life
