Marin Vista is an holistic outpatient rehabilitation program for people recovering from eating disorders. Located in Corte Madera, California, it’s in close proximity to water and the lush green surroundings of Northern California. Nearby Mount Tom is visible from the treatment center. Marin Vista offers very flexible scheduling, making it an ideal recovery option for individuals who would like to seek treatment concurrently with attending work or school.
Treatment and Staff
Only eight patients are seen at any given time. Staff uses interviews and assessments to help devise the best treatment path for an individual patient. There are six counselors on staff at Marin Vista, and they engage in both group and individual sessions with patients. Modes of treatment at Marin Vista include CBT, family therapy and relapse prevention skill-building. A typical session lasts four hours, and patients may attend up to six days a week. Treatment length varies for each person and 12-step recovery principles are no implemented in this program.
Treatment at Marin Vista focuses on helping patients make healthy choices about food on their own. One thing that sets Marin Vista apart from other facilities is that each patient’s meals are specifically tailored to their needs, rather than each person eating the same meal. Throughout treatment, patients engage in activities like grocery shopping and meal planning, which helps them learn how to plan healthy and balanced meals. Food fears and other food anxieties are also worked through in activities like group lunches, which encourage growth in a supportive environment.
In keeping with Marin Vista’s commitment to healing the whole person, the center offers a wide variety of classes designed to help strengthen the mind/body connection. These classes include paddle board yoga, Qi Gong, dance and movement and expressive arts.
Patients who attend Marin Vista can also expect support as they continue their recovery journey, as the facility offers lifetime aftercare to all of its alumni.
Marin Vista is a wonderful option for individuals seeking a recovery program that focuses on mindfulness and a connection to the outdoors. Its beautiful settings are ideal for reflection and healing. It is an attractive choice for those who would like a program designed to suit their individual dietary and lifestyle needs. Because there is flexibility in the number of sessions each person may choice to attend, patients can work with their caregivers to find a treatment level that makes sense for them.
