    Remuda RanchRemuda is a place where eating disorders don’t define an individual. The individual defines their treatment. Each program is tailored to meet the needs of the individual patient and their individual needs.

    When Remuda first opened its doors in 1990, we understood that complete and lasting eating disorder recovery is never easy. But, it is possible.


    Remuda RanchRemuda utilizes a holistic approach to care and recovery. Our mind-body-social-spiritual framework of care makes the best use of healing in every aspect of an individual’s life. And because our program lasts for 45-60 days, lasting changes are able to take root and thrive.

    Because eating disorders often occur with other co-occurring issues such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse or trauma, we accompany group and individual therapy with other innovative treatment approaches.

    Women and girls remain in treatment for a minimum of 45 days.  This offers them the time required to adopt new behaviors in a steady and progressive manner. Our team of anxiety disorder professionals also address co-occurring issues such as depression, social isolation, shame, and substance abuse. By using a combination of innovative therapies such as art, equine and challenge course, we give patients the best possible chance for complete and lasting recovery.

    And because we want family members to also experience healing, they are involved in treatment in two ways.  Families take part in therapeutic phone calls throughout treatment, and then come to Arizona for a few days of intensive family therapy.
