Remuda Ranch, an Arizona program designed to help anorexic and bulimic youth.
Ward and Kay Keller, founders of Remuda Ranch, developed this specialized treatment center as a result of a personal family experience. Their daughter suffered from anorexia. Their experience with their daughter’s illness and recovery inspired them to establish Remuda Ranch.
The Remuda Ranch program is geared toward helping residents overcome the habitual response patterns of an eating disorder and uncovering the root issues that are at the core of the illness. Ths program is designed to assist the patient in stabilizing, consolidating, and applying the productive coping skills and lifestyle management techniques.
This comprehensive, individualized program treats the whole person with individualized programs to meet medical, nutritional, and psychological needs, blending these components with a non-denominational Christian perspective. Over forty clinicians including physicians, psychologists, nurses, masters level therapists, and registered dietitian work at the center.
Remuda Ranch is accredited by the Joint Commission of Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO). It is a fully licensed healthcare facility by the State of Arizona and CHAMPUS certified as a psychiatric hospital. Most insurance policies and carriers cover the cost of treatment and assistance is provided to prospective patients who want to determine insurance coverage.
This professional program is an overwhelming success and would hopefully be duplicated around the country. They are accredited and accountable to the State of Arizona for their license.
