Meal Support

Meal Support

Meals can be stressful for clients struggling with eating disorders. We help clients prepare and plate their meals and process emotions before and after eating.

Why It’s Effective

With expert support and education, clients can learn to decrease anxiety around meal times and form a healthier relationship with food.

  • h

Holistic Therapies

Holistic Therapies

Eating disorders are damaging to the body, mind, and spirit, and all three need to be addressed for lasting recovery. Our holistic therapies, including yoga, meditation, and energy and breath work, take a 360-degree approach to recovery and help our clients heal from the inside out.

Why It’s Effective

Holistic therapies can be effective in treating eating disorders by helping clients heal the disconnection between their physical, mental and spiritual selves. Our holistic therapies provide clients a new set of tools to manage triggers with healthier coping skills.

  • h

Trauma Therapies

Trauma Therapies

Eating disorders can be a symptom of untreated trauma. We offer a wide selection of trauma therapies, including EMDR, cognitive behavioral therapy, equine therapy, and brainspotting, to help our clients address trauma in a safe space. In individual and group therapy, clients explore the connection between their trauma and eating disorder.

Why It’s Effective

Untreated trauma can stand in the way of long-term recovery from eating disorders. Addressing the trauma allows clients to get to some of the root causes of their illness and heal from a deeper place, which helps prevent relapse.

Personalized Treatment

Personalized Treatment

No two clients are alike, and treatment should reflect that. We leverage a wide variety of treatment approaches and therapies to offer highly individualized treatment plans tailored to each client. Treatment reflects each client’s unique issues, experiences, background, and needs.

Why It’s Effective

Personalized treatment plans recognize each client as an individual, not a number. Our high level of one-on-one attention lets our clients know that their needs are our top priority. Individualized treatment allows clients to find approaches that most resonate with them, providing a more powerful treatment experience.

Equine Therapy

Equine Therapy

Equine therapy, which involves connecting with and caring for horses, is often a profound healing opportunity for clients. A foundational part of The Ranch experience, equine therapy uses horses and certified equine therapists to help clients manage their emotions, form healthy bonds with others, and improve self-confidence.

Why It’s Effective

Through the guidance of an equine therapist, clients gain new insights into their eating disorders and underlying issues. Equine therapy provides valuable lessons in relationship building, trust, communication, and accountability.

Psychiatric Care

Psychiatric Care

Eating disorders often occur alongside one or more mental health disorders such as anxiety, a personality disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, and depression and other mood disorders. At The Ranch, our psychiatric team is trained to treat the full range of mental health issues that may be impacting our clients.

Why It’s Effective

By managing underlying mental health disorders, clients may experience an improvement in psychiatric symptoms, which allows them to more deeply engage in treatment for their eating disorder.

  • h

Adventure Therapies

Adventure Therapies

Adventure therapies help clients bring therapeutic concepts to life, experiencing them not just in their minds, but also in their bodies. Our adventure therapies, which include activities like high and low ropes course, ziplining, maze, and sweat lodge spiritual ceremonies, empower our clients to see themselves and their struggles in a new light.

Why It’s Effective

Adventure therapy instills confidence and trust in clients and teaches them important lessons about facing challenges and connecting with themselves and others.

Family Therapy

Family Therapy

Eating disorders can be complicated by unhealthy ways of relating to oneself and others. The Ranch offers weekly family therapy and a three-day family workshop to help clients and their loved ones recover together. Family members get support and resources to begin their own healing process and learn how to best support their loved one.

Why It’s Effective

By including family in the treatment process, we’re able to help clients and their loved ones rebuild trust, learn healthier communication skills, and strengthen and improve their relationships.

Alumni Q&A

  • What treatments are offered at The Ranch that really help with eating disorders?

    Previous Question

    Laura

    I didn’t know how to go about eating without throwing up, but they were really helpful with mealtime, and all of us eating together. I felt really ashamed about how I ate, but it felt really comfortable being there with all those girls. We didn’t know what we were doing, but not knowing what to do — I didn’t feel alone in that … Having that accountability saved my life, because I didn’t feel like I was strong enough to do it myself.

    There’s lots of space, there’s animals there … I felt welcome. Everyone was nice there. When I started to get to know some of the girls, I felt a connection to another human being, and then I felt a connection to the Earth … and it was like I woke up. It was pretty strong.
