Mirasol recently expanded its eating disorder treatment programs to include backpacking. To prepare for the upcoming trips, six Mirasol therapists put their packs on their backs and spent two days trekking in a remote valley high in Tucson's Catalina Mountains. The group was led by an experienced backpacker, and included primary therapists, exercise therapists, an aftercare therapist as well as Mirasol's Executive Director, Diane Ryan.
