Mirasol recently expanded its eating disorder treatment programs to include backpacking. So far as we know, no other eating disorder treatment program offers backpacking, despite the proven efficacy of wilderness therapy for troubled adolescents. We'll be offering — weather permitting — bimonthly two- and three-day trips, taking advantage of Arizona's wealth of impossibly lovely wild public lands. Each trip includes a 50-50 split of medically- and emotionally-appropriate clients and the clinical staff required to ensure their safety and support them in their journey.
Go inside Mirasol's holistic approach to eating disorder treatment, with these videos showing alternative therapies in practice and describing the evolution of Mirasol's specialization in the treatment of eating disorders with co-occurring trauma and PTSD.
Adventure therapy is an integral part of Mirasol's alternative eating disorder treatment program, including challenge courses, hiking, camping, caving and even backpacking! Watch videos to share the experience of some of our recent outdoor adventures!
