Sunspire Health Hyde Park is a private, residential treatment facility specifically designed to meet the needs of women with substance abuse, co-occurring mental health disorders, body image and food issues, and trauma. Our goal is to provide a homelike setting where women can overcome their addictions and gain a new sense of control over their lives. Our evidence-based medical and behavioral treatment programs teach women to free themselves from the thoughts, actions and self-sabotaging behaviors that bring them to Hyde Park. We teach critical self-care skills to encourage women's independence and continued success once they embark upon their new life in recovery. Hyde Park is focused on encouraging female empowerment and support to build lasting systems of support through the bonds that happen during treatment.

Reviews at a Glance
- Body Image and Disordered Eating
The vast majority of women who come to Hyde Park are dealing with body image issues and a good portion are also struggling with disordered eating in addition to substance use. Using evidence-based therapies and focusing on nutritional guidance and self-esteem, the clinical team at Hyde Park will address these underlying issues that may contribute to the patient's substance use disorder.
- Focus on Healing the Family
Sunspire Health Hyde Park has a well-established family program that includes ongoing family therapy sessions with an assigned Family Therapist for each patient, as well as an intensive family weekend that works to heal the family. Patients and families who go through the family weekend at Hyde Park have greatly benefited from the communication and breakthroughs that happen during the four days, allowing them to form lifelong bonds and repair shattered relationships.
