two week summer intensives at Alsana

Nurture your hard-earned recovery with Alsana this summer.

Sign up for a recovery refresh at the PHP or IOP level of care any time between now and the end of August 2021.

2020 was a long, challenging year- especially for eating disorder clients working hard to maintain their hard-earned recovery.

While we’re grateful to be returning to some of the people, places, and routines we missed during COVID isolation last year, we know this is an overwhelming time for some — especially difficult for those struggling to maintain their eating disorder recovery, many of whom are also working to manage other mental health challenges ...

such as anxiety and trauma.

Recovery is a long, non-linear journey. Rather than waiting for your “engine light” to come on, make time for recovery maintenance. It’s normal to need support and rest along on a trip as long as this. Reaching out for help is proactive, self-compassionate, and wise. Our compassionate treatment teams are here to help you keep going strong!

If you believe you or someone you care about could benefit from two weeks of in-person or virtual PHP/IOP care this summer, connect with our team today.
