Mirasol's Continuum of Care
Mirasol offers a seamless multi-level continuum of care, from inpatient and residential treatment through partial hospitalization to intensive outpatient therapy, enabling clients to smoothly transition between programs sharing a common philosophy. This treatment continuum allows patients to "step up" or "step down" to match treatment intensity with their recovery needs.
Eating disorder treatment centers provide four basic levels of care:
- Inpatient Treatment - The patient stays 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in a residential and therapeutic facility to achieve physical and emotional stabilization.
- Residential Treatment - The patient stays 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in a residential setting where the focus is on psychotherapy and skill building.
- Partial Hospitalization (PHP) "Day" Programs - The patient continues their recovery, living at home or in a supportive community, with part-time programming and opportunities to work, volunteer or study.
- Intensive Outpatient Treatment - The least restrictive type of program in which a patient may see a dietitian, therapist and/or other recovery professional 2-3 times per week.
Each client leaves Mirasol with a "toolbox" containing interventions and coping skills they can use to replace unhealthy coping behaviors.
Each client also goes home with a complete plan of action for continuing her recovery, including individual and group therapy. Mirasol alumni initially see a primary therapist at least twice a week as well as joining a weekly process group. Twelve-step programs, which are generally free, can fill the gap for women who have dual diagnoses, limited funds or who just need additional support.Subscribe to Our Newsletter
