Mirasol has been breaking new ground in the treatment of eating disorders and related conditions for more than 20 years. It was the first to embrace the integrative approach, combining individual and group psychotherapy and nutritional counseling with alternative therapies proven effective in the treatment of chronic stress-related conditions. Today Mirasol stands apart as the sole internationally-recognized eating disorder treatment center to resist the trend toward corporate ownership. As a small, independently-owned facility, Mirasol provides treatment based on what works for the individual instead of what works for corporate shareholders.
With a 3:1 staff-client ratio, we offer extraordinary individual attention and tailor our programs to the individual client's needs. Our residential eating disorder treatment programs provide a home-like, secure and supportive environment in a spectacular setting.
Our multidisciplinary eating disorder treatment team consists of psychiatrists, therapists, nurses, doctors and dietitians who work closely with practitioners of alternative medicine, including body therapies, trauma therapies and experiential therapies.
Mirasol offers a seamless multi-level continuum of care, enabling clients to smoothly transition between treatment programs sharing a common philosophy. Clients "step up" or "step down" to match treatment intensity with their recovery needs.
Mirasol offers a continuum of behavioral health services based on your availability, budget and the issues you want to address in treatment. Our adolescent eating disorder is open to teen girls ages 12-17 and our adult residential and outpatient programs serve adults ages 18 and older.
