An eating recovery community
created for and focused on you.

Welcome to Alsana

Eating recovery isn’t simple or one dimensional, and
neither are our clients. Our focus is on the total health
of the individual, not just the disorder.

Seeing reflections of yourself in other people, whether it’s something that you value or that you are ashamed of, is one of the biggest things that was helpful to me in treatment.
