What does it entail to live at the Living Proof MN residence?
The family style program at Living Proof MN is truly one of a kind. The founder, Shira Charpentier and her husband Tracy Charpentier, have opened up their home to anyone committed to taking an active role in their recovery and who are ready to change their life. Living Proof MN has been traveling amongst uncharted territory; creating a style of care that does not exist elsewhere. The method is modeled off of the evidence bases approach, Family Based Treatment. Although, in this instance it is offered for adults and led with mentors who have recovered from their own eating disorders. The family style program utilizes subject matter experts, equine therapy, outings and events, fluid roles within the family, and truthful dialogue. It is there that the eating disorder is challenged, rigid ways of thinking and acting are interrupted and replaced, and participants develop their own passions which allow them to become a warrior of your own future.
"Researchers, therapists, doctors, and many others have been looking for a "cure" for eating disorders for many years. There is still so much mystery involved in the most effective treatment modality for this high-risk population. Living Proof MN uses the most evidence based approach, Family Based Treatment. This form of treatment is not frequently utilized with adults due to lack of accessibility of supporters who know these disorders well and can lovingly maintain boundaries with the person they are supporting. Shira has bridged that gap for adults. This modality has proven to be incredibly successful at Living Proof MN. They are the only people who are using this highly effective approach in the nation. As a clinician, Living Proof MN has been an absolute game changer for my adult clients and I would not hesitate to continue referring clients to LPMN." -Audrey Wilson, LCPC, CADC, CTP
