I recently had the chance to visit Esperanza Eating Disorders Center. It was an incredible experience and I’m so glad I went.
When I arrived, I was immediately welcomed by the warm and friendly staff. They were very understanding and patient with all of my questions about the program and what to expect during my stay. During my visit, I got to spend time with other people who are also facing similar struggles with eating disorders. We shared our stories in a safe space and it felt so comforting to be surrounded by understanding people who really get what you’re going through.
The facility is absolutely beautiful - they have sculptures in the courtyard, stunning art work on the walls, and a calming atmosphere throughout the property that really sets a positive tone for everyone there. I particularly enjoyed doing yoga as part of their daily activities program as it helped me relax and just think without judgement or interference from anyone else’s opinion or diagnosis.
Overall, Esperanza Eating Disorders Center truly made me feel valued and supported throughout my stay. The staff were genuine, knowledgeable, and provided great support for each individual in the facility no matter their stage in treatment. It was such a valuable experience that I will cherish forever!
