ABOUT ROSEWOOD CENTERS FOR EATING DISORDERS – WICKENBURG
Set on 13 acres in the beautiful Sonora Desert, Rosewood Ranch in Wickenburg, Ariz., one of four Rosewood Recovery Centers, offers residential treatment programs for adults and adolescents struggling with eating disorders, substance abuse, and co-occurring disorders. It is one of 82 residential treatment facilities in the state of Arizona. Rosewood’s facility in nearby Capri offers a less structured program, while outpatient services are offered in Tempe. If necessary, medically-monitored detoxification is available on-site in Wickenburg.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Upon intake, clients meet with a team of dietitians, nurses, and psychiatrists to assess individual needs and form a comprehensive, individualized treatment plan. While Rosewood Ranch treats eating disorders, including binge eating, anorexia, and bulimia, the facility also addresses underlying psychological issues and substance abuse disorders. Rosewood treats adolescent (12 to 17) and adult clients separately. The facility is among the 32 percent of Arizona facilities to treat adolescents.
Rosewood Ranch adheres to a multidisciplinary approach to treatment. Along with a 12-step introduction, it uses evidence-based modalities, such as dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) and motivational interviewing (MI). Clients may also undergo eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) sessions to address issues of trauma.
Along with traditional methods of individual and group counseling sessions, Rosewood Ranch uses holistic treatment techniques. Clients participate in psychodrama sessions, equine therapy, pet therapy, mindfulness meditation, yoga, and Tai Chi. They also work individually with dietitians, participate in meal planning, and attend educational presentations on eating and body image. Upon discharge, clients are encouraged to enroll in the less-structured Capri program.
The Alumni Program provides continued support. Staff reach out regularly to keep in touch and offer referrals to support groups, 12-step programs, and other aftercare options. Alumni may attend a two-day reunion, which consists of team building activities and stories from graduates.
Rosewood Ranch employs a multidisciplinary team of physicians, registered nurses, psychiatrists, master’s level eating disorder therapists, adolescent psychologists, registered dietitians, and recreational therapists. A medical team is available 24 hours a day.
