Rosewood Centers for Eating Disorders® is a state of-the-art eating disorder treatment facility located in a serene, private setting high in the Sonoran desert with breath-taking views of the Bradshaw Mountains. Rosewood Ranch offers male and female teenagers, ages 12-17, treatment for anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating, overeating, and other related or co-occurring issues.
We provide comprehensive treatment, by a team of dedicated and caring professionals who work together on all aspects of our residents’ care. Our multidisciplinary team of experts includes psychiatrists, physicians, master’s level teen therapists, addiction specialists, registered dietitians and nursing staff. To ensure the highest level of comprehensive care, each resident is assigned their own treatment team which meets several times throughout the week to create and review each resident’s personalized treatment plan.
Eating Disorder Treatment Program for Teens Features:
Academics for Teens:
It is important to us that our residents do not fall behind in school while in treatment and remain on track for graduation. Each resident attends our on-site school for a few hours each morning. Our school facilitator helps residents learn a variety of academic subjects from our on-line curriculum. If the resident chooses to participate in the on-line curriculum, they will work on a variety of coursework from the extensive core curriculum library. Teens also have the option to bring current coursework from their home school. Our residents are supported and guided through the various subjects required.
Family Integrated Care:
Family involvement is very important to the eating disorder healing process for a teenager. Our Family Workshop is designed to address family issues and provide information on communication and the recovery process. The program incorporates educational presentations, group process and experiential activities.
Each family participates in an experiential equine session during the family workshop. Family equine is designed to provide opportunities to learn and grow in family system communication techniques. The family will work as a team to lead a horse through obstacles, as assigned by the equine therapist. Collaboration is essential in this challenge and will encourage the family to communicate in new ways to successfully complete the task. In addition to our Family Workshop, the primary therapist will be in contact with the teen’s parents or legal guardian on a weekly basis. The therapists will update them on their teen's progress and schedule any additional family therapy sessions.
We strive to provide a safe and intimate environment where residents and families can experience renewed hope for the future. The expert and compassionate clinical and medical staff teach patients, family and friends essential tools they need to return home with renewed clarity and confidence to live healthy and productive lives.
Aftercare Planning for Teens:
Aftercare planning begins as soon as the teenager is admitted. Our treatment team works together to evaluate ongoing needs and to prepare teens for their return home. Our teens discover the power within themselves. They take an active role in planning their discharge and establishing a system for their continued recovery. To further prepare themselves, teens participate in weekly relapse prevention sessions. During those sessions, they learn strategies to cope with the inevitable struggles that they will experience on their journey through recovery. Our alumni coordinator, with their parent or guardian's permission, will contact each teen numerous times within the first year after treatment to check-in on their journey through recovery. If additional resources are needed, our team of staff members is simply a phone call away.

Family Week is an intensive 5-day program designed to make patients and their families aware of the dynamics of eating disorders.
Participants learn how family systems operate, and how eating disorders, addictions and other disorders negatively impact communications while learning to share thoughts and feelings in a non-judge- mental way. We believe that when families work together and support one another, dysfunctional patterns can be broken and inter- generational patterns arrested.
Family members are supported in making decisions on how to change these patterns into healthier means of interaction resulting in more functional relationships.
