Alsana saved and changed my life. It’s the most trauma informed ED center out there and has such incredible, informed clinicians (specifically at the Birmingham location I was at). In my experience, they embraced all genders, sexualities, bodies (HAES informed), etc. Even though I came in angry, confused, and stubborn, they stayed with me and let me heal at my own pace without forcing me to be at a place I simply wasn’t at the time. They gave me the space, with support, I needed to choose my own recovery; I’m now able to continue heading towards it on my own. I highly recommend Alsana to anyone struggling with an eating disorder who wants to receive compassionate, trauma-informed care.
