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.

“There is something very magical about Esperanza. The programming and dedicated staff helped to lay down a solid foundation for my recovery. Their individualized and unique hands on approach to recovery truly sets them apart from other programs. My previous therapist and another treatment program taught me DBT skills. I was truly hesitant to hear about their DBT programming because it has never worked for me. At Esperanza, they do more than teach you how to use skills, they SHOW you how to put them into ACTION.
The family feel and relaxed environment made being away from home bearable. I feel just as supported by staff today as I did during my first week in their partial hospitalization program. I will always be a part of the Esperanza family.
Thank you for my recovery.”
