Rosewood Ranch for Adolescents
Rosewood Ranch sets aside safe and dedicated facilities specifically for adolescents age 12 to 17. We are the only eating disorder treatment program in the country to offer medical detox and acute care services within a seamless continuum of care.
Situated in Wickenburg, Arizona, on 14 beautiful acres in the high Sonoran desert with breathtaking views of the Bradshaw mountains, Rosewood Ranch for Adolescents provides a secluded and tranquil setting for adolescents seeking lasting recovery from eating disorders and co-existing disorders—with the ideal mix of independence and structured activities. Rosewood Ranch is licensed as an inpatient behavioral facility, which enables us to offer inpatient and residential treatment for adolescents with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder and other eating and co-occurring disorders. Our acute-care inpatient treatment can accommodate patients who are too medically compromised to be admitted to traditional inpatient eating disorder treatment facilities. Rosewood also offers medically supervised detox for adolescents if needed.
Levels of Care
At Rosewood Ranch for Adolescents, we offer four distinct levels of care to help patients recover from eating disorders and co-occurring disorders:
- Our Inpatient treatment program serves adolescents age 12 to 17 who require medical stabilization, detox, 24-hour monitoring and other acute care services in a licensed inpatient behavioral setting. Our medical team can deal with diabulimia, pain syndromes, physical limitations, laxative abuse, bowel function normalization as well as medical devices such as J/G and NG feeding tubes, and insulin pumps
- Our Residential program is for medically stable adolescents who need a highly structured multidisciplinary care and recovery program.
- Patients can step down to our day treatment programs: partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programming.
