At Esperanza Eating Disorders Center, our goal is to provide a supportive, empowering environment for eating disorder recovery. Our team of experienced, multidisciplinary clinicians utilize evidence-based treatment approaches to provide individuals with a wide range of skills and healthy coping behaviors to guide them to a life of fulfilling recovery. As a locally owned facility, Esperanza is able to provide individualized care plans that are both effective and flexible.  

Our cornerstone philosophy is Recovery by Doing. Patients do not just hear about what to do, they get hands-on experience doing recovery. Integrative therapies as well as grocery shopping, cooking and plating their own meals and activities like restaurant outings are all part of our hands-on approach to healing.  

We look forward to doing recovery with families and professionals in the South Texas community.
