Treating the Root Cause
Eating disorders are often accompanied by other mental illnesses including trauma, depression, anxiety, substance use and personality disorders. At Esperanza, our focus is not just the eating disorder. Our team is committed to guiding patients to better mental, spiritual and physical health through addressing the underlying causes of the eating disorder and any associated mental illnesses. The message that there is hope for living a more balanced life, free of persistent thoughts about food and body shape, is one patients hear and experience every day at Esperanza.
