Mirasol Eating Disorder Recovery Centers proudly announces a new program for women who are looking for a way to "jump start" their recovery from anorexia, bulimia or binge eating.
The Transformational Living Center (TLC) in Tucson, Arizona, is the culmination of 10 years of research into the most effective options for eating disorder treatment and relapse prevention. Like Mirasol's primary residential treatment program, it combines traditional therapy with alternative therapies proven effective in the treatment of chronic stress-related conditions. However, since not everyone can take time out for long-term residential care, TLC's flexible program emphasizes real world skills and techniques that can achieve rapid improvements in the client's ability to cope with stress.
One of TLC's specialties is "Brain Paint," a new development in neurofeedback that helps improve and restore brain function. TLC also offers training in emotional freedom techniques (EFT), meal planning and preparation, psychodrama, dance/movement therapy, adventure therapy, coping skills, dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), co-dependency, healthy communication, relationship development, sexuality, body image, art therapy and women's health.
Daily schedules are carefully tailored to the individual's needs, and modified to incorporate part-time work, school or volunteer opportunities. Treatment length can vary from two weeks to three months or more, depending on the client's requirements.
"We incorporate many more therapy hours than a typical transitional living program," says Program Manager Diane Ryan, "so that as the clients progress beyond the initial two weeks, they can choose what works best for them from a menu of treatment options."
Mirasol is a CARF-accredited eating disorder treatment program founded in 1999 that focuses on the biochemical relationship between the body, nutrition, and mental health. Its mission is to heal the mind, body and spirit, promoting therapeutic transformation in individuals, and, ultimately, in families and communities.
