"It's Not About the Food"

KGUN9 Profiles Mirasol's Teen Eating Disorder Recovery Program

As part of a series on teen addictions in southern Arizona, KGUN9 reporter Taja Davis visited Mirasol's adolescent residential eating disorder treatment program to look into how eating disorders are treated and what role the "diet culture" plays.

Providing treatment to those who have eating disorders is Mirasol, a provider of integrative treatment that has helped people overcome eating disorders in the Tucson area for more than 20 years. At Mirasol, dietitians provide nutrition education to support healthy behavior and to build strong positive relationships with food and their bodies. With its resident adolescent program, chefs at the Tucson home prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner every day for the clients who stay there. Mirasol believes in allowing people to be themselves, with the philosophy that "all foods fit".
