Their personalized care of their patients and families is beyond measure. The entire team has gotten to know the unique needs of my daughter and our family. With their assistance we are all on the road to recovery.

Im not sure words can explain how BCW has changed our lives forever. My daughter’s life was saved by everyone involved with their knowledge, and understanding of my child’s needs. Our daughter spent over 3 months in residential care and even though this was the hardest decision we have ever made as parents, it was the best choice for our daughter. The ENTIRE staff were angels, they gave her the kind of care we were unable and not knowledgeable enough to give at the time to help her on her wellness journey. They provided a safe space to heal, they were tough and stern when they needed to be and always gave a loving touch and gentle words when that was needed as well. Not only did they support our daughter, but us parents as well. We were educated on how to help our daughter which gave us the confidence we so desperately needed when it was time to bring her home.
Our concerns were heard, we were allowed to voice our feeling's without fear of judgement. They truly are masters of their craft and all had the same goal in mind. I will never be able to thank them enough for saving our girl and bringing her back to us.
We will always hold a special place in our hearts for all. Highly recommend Backcountry wellness.

I had called several places referred by my daughter’s pediatrician. before Backcountry Wellness. Most of them I got a no answer, or not accepting an 11 year old patient. BCW was my last call. Thank goodness I made this call and didn’t give up! Dr.B answered the phone herself! I had suspicions that my daughter might have had an eating disorder according to a post of hers to friends. Dr.B was very accommodating to our needs for an appointment. During the intake appointment Dr.B was very gentle and compassionate and still able to directly dig in with honest questions. At the end, Dr.B determined my daughter didn’t have a problem. Of course I felt at ease since she’s an expert on this subject. I then expected to be directed to Miss Marrisa to deal with the financials of the appointment. No one does anything for free. Surprisingly, Dr. B charged me nothing for the visit. I am forever grateful for her time and counsel. Will definitely keep her in mind if anyone I know needs this kind of help!

I wish I could rate negative stars. This is the worst residential facility I have ever seen. I will feel guilt for the rest of my life for sending my daughter to this force feeding prison that they have the audacity to call a treatment facility. Staff are mostly baby sitters who know nothing about ED. My daughter was there almost two years ago and I still think about how awful it was. Jessica is a liar and one of the most unethical people I have ever met. She should lose her license forget about her job. If you care about your child, DO NOT SEND THEM HERE!!!

Our daughter participated in IOP, PHP and residential care. The staff of Backcountry Wellness was a solid team and regularly communicated with each other and with us. They helped our daughter to weight restore while in residential care. The home was a warm, beautiful and welcoming environment that houses up to six adolescents/young adults. Each person gets very individualized treatment. We felt our daughter was well cared for and safe in this environment. We were able to visit her on the weekends and have nightly phone calls.

Dr, Bronfman, the founder, was readily available when we had questions. Leslie, the family therapist, helped improve our communication and expectations of each other. Our daughter really connected with her therapist and learned quite a bit about her illness. Overall, it was an effective intervention for our daughter that set her on the right path.

When choosing care for yourself or someone you love, it can feel overwhelming to navigate the cesspool of centers who often seem like they care more about your insurance money than your recovery. Backcountry Wellness never treats a patient like a product. They invest the same care and attention in you or a loved one as they would a son, daughter, sister, brother or any other member of the family. BCW doesn’t offer a vague illusion of health, they give you the hands-on tools and invaluable knowledge to achieve both mental and physical recovery. When deep inside an eating disorder, it can seem like any individual outside your own head can’t be trusted with preparing your food or restructuring your life. Trust BCW. Throughout my time there, I’ve met a multitude of tenacious, inspiring individuals, but the most important person I ever met was myself. After working with Dr. Joanna Bronfmann, Jessica Zweiman, Molly Gerster, and too many others to count, I feel like I’ve finally reconnected with who I truly am since anorexia first sank its claws into me at age 12. I’m feeling like “me” again. It’s been a process more difficult yet more magical than any quest from Lord of the Rings. There is no doubt in my mind that BCW saved my life – on several occasions. However, Dr. Bronfman and her team didn’t just give me life, they gave me a life worth living.

I cannot say enough good things about Backcountry! They went above and beyond to meet my daughter where she was and have never let up. From Care Coaches, to the founder, Dr. Bronfman, the staff at Backcountry have been absolutely extraordinary. Backcountry was not my daughter's first treatment center but soon after her arrival, the staff fully committed to her individual needs and have the capacity to stand with her throughout her entire journey to recovery, no matter what level of care she needs. They tuned in to all the pieces she was struggling with and saw her as a whole child, not just as an eating disorder. Her team took the time to treat her with compassion and respect at all times. I truly wish every child who is battling with an eating disorder could have the opportunity to be seen and heard the way my daughter has been during her time at Backcountry. The team's level of skill, experience, professionalism, and capacity to care has been life changing for my daughter.
