Esperanza is a partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient center providing evidence-based treatment for adolescents and adults with all types of eating disorders. Our cornerstone philosophy is Recovery by Doing. Patients don’t just hear about what to do, they get hands on experience doing recovery. Integrative approaches combined with evidence-based skills training helps patients fully incorporate new behaviors. Patients learn to plan for grocery shopping, cooking, plating their own meals and exposure experiences. They participate in integrative therapies including mindfulness, meditation, mindful movement, and creative arts. At Esperanza EDC, patients experience an unparalleled level of individualized care. Small milieus, coupled with a team focused on building strong relationships with each patient, provide the framework for community that is necessary for recovery. No one can do recovery alone! Bilingual staff ensure that Spanish speaking patients and their families feel understood. If a patient requires a higher level of care, we collaborate with eating disorder treatment facilities across the country to facilitate a good match for the specific needs of the individual.
