Nutrition counseling and meal support are key elements in Mirasol's PHP/Day Eating Disorder Treatment Program. To help ease the transition from residential treatment to life after Mirasol, we also provide dietitian-assisted menu planning and grocery shopping outings, along with a weekly cooking classes.
