Therapeutic program in the Adaptive Care Model™ | Our Approach | Alsana


Through Alsana’s therapeutic component in the Adaptive Care Model™, we create a supportive and open relationship with you based on your permission to explore all sides of your eating disorder. We deliver the therapeutic aspect of care in a phased approach allowing you to build a stable foundation prior to processing any related underlying issues. Throughout the phases, you will work with our team of experienced and understanding therapists to overcome negative feelings, fears, and challenges.

As you progress through treatment, you will begin to explore the root causes of your eating disorder through different evidence-based therapies. The customized aspects of therapy work in synergy with the other four branches of the Adaptive Care Model™ to effectively heal the whole you and to ensure a full recovery well beyond treatment.

The Alsana Difference

At Alsana, our passionate and dedicated team of experts use their years of experience to treat the whole person—mind, body, heart, and spirit. Our focus on the therapeutic aspect of the model is about understanding the neurobiological facets of eating disorders and integrating data-driven practices to treat the individual first and not the disorder.

Knowing and Changing Your Brain

Equipped with evidence-based industry research and expertise, our teams work together to educate you and your family about the biological and neurological differences of those with eating disorders. Through understanding the science behind eating disorders, we can help you learn and work with the mind to facilitate recovery.

Strengthening Relationships

At Alsana, we promote neural integration through the therapeutic aspect of your relationships with families and peers. When people understand the “why” behind actions and behaviors, they gain a deeper understanding of their experience and the treatment process. Through developing relationships, you will learn emotional regulation, self-compassion, forgiveness, and acceptance, which creates flexibility in responding to difficult situations.

Transition After Treatment

Alsana understands the liberation and fears around completing treatment. Our staff will check in with you over the next year after you complete your journey with us. This provides us with the opportunity to share any additional guidance on how to maintain a healthy recovery. Our professionals care about you no matter how long you were at Alsana and they understand the struggles you may face in real-world environments. We are privileged to help you during your time at Alsana and we will be available even after you leave to support your transition to life outside of treatment.
