With our “all foods can fit” model, we believe in flexibility and enjoyment of foods without shame or judgment. We welcome vegan clients and help them untangle their nutrition requirements from any rigid food beliefs and provide tools for maintaining recovery after treatment. Our registered dietitians and culinary team work to establish nourishing eating patterns and restore a trusting relationship between food and body within a compassionate, supportive, and safe environment. We believe recovery happens with permission and progress, not perfection.

Movement

Alsana’s movement program is built on evidence-based treatment that redefines the relationship with physical activity and integrates progressive levels of movement as healing for both mind and body.

Movement can be an enjoyable and life-giving part of one’s recovery. Clients with the medical acuity to explore joyful movement need tools and guidance for incorporating it into their daily lives after treatment. That’s why we don’t avoid exercise, but instead, work to help mend clients’ relationship with movement so their motivation to practice it becomes rooted in self-compassion

I believe in full, holistic eating disorder recovery. At Alsana, we build bonds of hope through the fibers of healing relationships. Recovery is not a straight line. It's messy, scary, and worth it. The Relational dimension is special because is it ties all the other pieces together, creating a tapestry of community and connection, not only with others but with ones' own self.
