Adventure Therapy: Mirasol Clients Go Caving! – Adventure therapy is an integral part of Mirasol’s residential eating disorder treatment program, including hiking, camping, and also caving! There are no lights and no walking path or protective railings. There’s nothing to illuminate your path but a small red flashlight — and the support of those around you. Mirasol Clinical Director Diane Ryan thinks it’s a great metaphor for treatment. “This is a place where we really have to help one another,” says Ryan. “There are a lot of places where it’s tight, and there are drops you can’t see, so you need someone to say, ‘put your foot here, put your hand there’. It drives home that message about depending on one another in a really healthy way.”
