Marin Vista Health and Wellness Center has been operating patient centered treatment, wellness and recovery programs in residential, intensive outpatient and partial hospitalization levels of care throughout Northern California for over a decade. In our nearly 30 years of experience owning and operating behavioral health programs, we have found that the struggles and challenges that every individual faces are so unique, that no single therapeutic approach can be effective or ultimately successful without allowing the patient to actively contribute to their treatment plan.
Unique Aspects of our Patient Centered Approach:
- Patients are actively involved in the development of their treatment plans, each of which reflects their goals and objectives, strengths and weaknesses, level of motivation for change and specific challenges.
- Our real-world approach to nutrition allows patients to shop for, choose and prepare their own meals. Patients are taught to ‘eye-ball’ portions and leave program with the skills and confidence to feed themselves and meet their nutritional needs outside of a structured treatment setting.
- Therapy group sizes are limited to allow all members time to actively participate in the group process and fully benefit from this treatment modality.
- We value the importance of individual therapy in addition to group treatment and provide 2 hours of individual psychotherapy, 1 hour of family therapy and 1 hour of nutrition counseling per week to patients in both our Day Treatment and Intensive Outpatient programs.
At Marin Vista, we understand that in order for an eating recovery program to actually make a lasting difference in patients lives, they must always be treated as unique individuals whose thoughts, emotions and behaviors are affected differently by their distinct DNA, environment, social influences, and life experiences. This customized treatment philosophy is why our team of eating disorder experts and holistic health specialists are themselves so varied in their respective disciplines. And the industry leading success rates of our former patients is the reason why we will continue to offer the highest quality of holistic eating recovery services that everyone suffering with an eating disorder deserves.
