Mirasol Now Licensed as an Inpatient Behavioral Health Facility

Mirasol is delighted to announce that the State of Arizona now recognizes Mirasol as an Inpatient Behavioral Health Facility.

"The additional license will allow us to treat clients who have higher accuity and more medical complications as well as lower weight," says Mirasol Executive Director Diane Ryan. "It will also also create opportunities to contract with additional insurance carriers, which will allow us to treat clients who have, up until now, been unable to receive treatment at Mirasol."

Event Info
The stereotype persists that eating disorders affect primarily upper middle class young white females, but Mirasol's clients represent a kaleidoscope of ages, races, ethnic backgrounds and sexual orientation. Is it harder to get treatment — and is recovery more difficult — if you're LGBTQ or from a different racial or ethnic background? What if you're older, and have had the disorder for decades? Mirasol clinicians discuss the many ways that age, race, ethnicity and sexual orientation can create barriers to treatment and recovery.
