- A customized recovery experience in the treatment of eating disorders
OUR PROGRAMSA lifestyle reset which involves full immersion in a total mind-body wellness experience.
At Backcountry Wellness, we know that recovery from an eating disorder is a
journey requiring on-going and intermittent support. For many women returning to
life after leaving inpatient or residential programming may prove to be challenging.
Successful after care and ongoing recovery is necessary.
Backcountry Wellness gives women the necessary choices to either continue working, attend school, volunteer or attend off site day or IOP programming. If activities are not in place we will assist you in finding activities to meet the day time structure expectations.
Our mission is to provide women with specialized support to effect emotional, behavioral, social and spiritual growth for patients.
This therapeutic yoga series combines gentle yoga postures, with elements of contemporary mind-body psychology, facilitating a deeper connection with one’s true self. This approach expands awareness, which integrates and reinforces the healing that Backcountry Wellness offers. Participants will be guided to explore life through different themes including “befriending the body,” “acceptance,” and “choice.” This validates each patient's own capacity to embrace their wholeness, which is the ultimate goal of healthy living.
BACKCOUNTRY WELLNESS IS AN IDEAL PLACE TO BRIDGE TREATMENT WITH REAL
LIFE, A STEP DOWN TOWARD COMPLETE RECOVERY.
THE CORNERSTONE OF BACKCOUNTRY WELLNESS IS A COMPREHENSIVE FOCUS ON THE
INDIVIDUAL. TREATMENT DURATION IS HIGHLY
