Eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating nega¬tively affect adequate nutrition absorption and may cause a variety of physical and neurological issues. We believe that with medical, nutritional, and emotional treatment, it is possible to reverse the adverse consequences of malnutrition.
To Heal The Body, Nourish The Mind
To address this, Sunflower at Remuda Ranch patients have frequent access to our on-campus Brain Center, which offers technology-based mindfulness resources designed to assist our patients with emotional self-regulation skills that enhance and expedite the recovery process. This approach helps our treatment team to effectively utilize the precious inpatient treatment days and attain recovery goals especially related to self-confidence and emotional strengthening.
One thing that is obvious when visiting our campus is that our patients are busy and they are happy. Our therapy dog “Allison” is always happy to see the girls. Patients can participate in a number of experiential activities that are designed to complement the recovery process, including:
- Equine Assisted Therapy and Horsemanship
- Organic gardening
- Movement Therapy
- Expressive Arts Therapy
- Challenge course exercises
Recovery in a Fun and Caring Atmosphere
The Sunflower program is located on a ranch in the beautiful Sonoran desert. Our expansive campus offers patients large rooms, indoor and outdoor horse arenas, a swimming pool, and a challenge course. Adolescents and teens at Sunflower get the benefit of a program that has treated eating disorders for more than 25 years, and a staff that cares deeply about nurturing personal growth and recovery in each individual patient.
