ABOUT ROSEWOOD CENTERS FOR EATING DISORDERS – WICKENBURG
Set on 13 acres of the beautiful Sonora Desert, Rosewood Ranch in Wickenburg, Ariz. — one of four Rosewood Recovery Centers — offers residential treatment programs for adults and adolescents struggling with eating disorders, substance abuse, and co-occurring disorders. Rosewood’s facility in nearby Capri offers a less structured program, while outpatient services are offered in Tempe. If necessary, medically monitored detoxification is available on-site in Wickenburg.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Upon intake, clients meet with a team of dieticians, nurses, and psychiatrists to assess individual needs and form a tailored, comprehensive treatment plan. While Rosewood Ranch treats several eating disorders, including binge eating, anorexia, and bulimia, the facility also addresses any underlying psychological issues and substance abuse disorders. Rosewood treats adolescent (12 to 17) and adult clients separately.
Rosewood Ranch adheres to a multidisciplinary approach to treatment. Along with a 12-Step introduction, the center uses several evidence-based modalities, such as dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) and motivational interviewing (MI). Clients also undergo eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) sessions to address issues of trauma.
Along with traditional methods of individual and group counseling sessions, Rosewood Ranch employs several holistic treatment techniques. Clients participate in psychodrama sessions, equine therapy, pet therapy, mindfulness meditation, yoga, and Tai Chi. Clients also work individually with dieticians, participate in meal planning, and attend educational presentations on eating and body image. Upon discharge, clients are strongly encouraged to enroll in the less-structured Capri program.
Those who complete treatment can participate in the Alumni Program which is meant to provide continued support for former clients. Staff reach out on a regular basis to keep in touch and offer referrals to support groups, 12-step programs, and other aftercare options. Alumni also have the option of attending a two-day-long reunion which consists of team building activities and stories from others who have gone through the program.
For those who wish to get even more involved, Rosewood offers the opportunity to participate in Operation RecoverED which is a presentation that raises awareness about eating disorders in schools, clubs, and organizations around the world.
Rosewood Ranch employs a multidisciplinary team of physicians, registered nurses, psychiatrists, master’s level eating disorder therapists, adolescent psychologists, registered dieticians, and recreational therapists. A medical team is available 24 hours a day to address any medical issues.

Situated in the serenity and seclusion of the Sonora Desert, Rosewood Ranch treats 63 residents at a time.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY
According to information collected by Rehabs.com, alumni give exemplary marks for accommodations, quality of staff, and the effectiveness of treatment. Alum A.B.T. told Rehabs.com: “Excellent treatment center for eating disorders. They helped me get on the road to recovery.”
Elsewhere online, reviews are mixed. Stephanie gave a one-star rating and told Yelp: “The clinical leadership didn’t know what they were doing.” Similarly, Shira wrote to the same secondary source: “The psychiatrist suggested no applicable techniques for dealing with my maladaptive behaviors and emotions.”
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
Feedback from loved ones gathered by Rehabs.com is also generally positive, though some reported a lack of family involvement. “Beautiful facility… Wasn't impressed that they wouldn't allow me to talk to my daughter for more than 5 min threee times a week,” an anonymous loved one wrote.
Another anonymous loved whose daughter attended the program gave a five-star review and wrote on Google: “In the month she was there. More progress was made to address her underlying issues than years of therapy ever had.” This same reviewer added that “the family week is profoundly powerful and a must do…”
A mixed review from a loved one of a former client gave positive marks on Rehabs.com for experienced staff and accommodations but felt that “Some of their research seems out of date.”
Those with disgruntlements mostly wrote about their displeasure with the cost of care, and several believed that the treatment center lied to them about their loved ones’ conditions. Additionally, Taz, who wrote to Yelp about her daughter’s experience claimed, “…there standard line is to tell every person there they have an eating disorder and every person has to go to Alcoholics Anonymous every day… My daughter has PTSD from being there only a week…”
WHAT STAFF SAY
According to Rehabs.com survey results, staff praised the effectiveness of treatment and the dedication of team members. A current employee told Rehabs.com: “We have a wonderful, diverse group of people that work here. They love what they do and it shows in the way in which they treat our clients.”
