Eating disorders are progressive and debilitating illnesses requiring medical, nutritional and psychological intervention. Individuals suffering from eating disorders often need a structured environment to achieve recovery. However all too often a person does well in a highly structured regimented environment only too fall into relapse upon returning to a less structured situation. Our residential program is designed to meet the individual needs of clients and their families in a way that gives them a higher level of responsibility and “teaches” them how to recover. The atmosphere of Monte Nido is professional and structured, but it is also warm friendly and family like. Our dedicated staff, many of whom are recovered themselves, serve as role models; and our environment inspires people to commit to overcoming obstacles that interfere with the quality of their lives.

The program at Monte Nido is designed to provide behavior and mood stabilization, creating a climate where destructive behavior can be interrupted. Clients can then work on the crucial underlying issues which caused and perpetuate their disordered eating and dysfunctional behaviors. We provide a structured schedule with education, psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral therapy, corrective eating patterns, healthy exercise, life skills training and spiritual enhancement, family therapy, and discharge planning.

Our philosophy includes: restoring biochemical functioning and nutritional balance, implementing healthy eating and exercise habits, changing destructive behaviors, and gaining insight and coping skills for underlying emotional, psychological issues. We believe that eating disorders are illnesses which, when treated correctly, can result in full recovery where the individual can resume a normal healthy relationship to food.

Nutrition and exercise are not simply part of our program. We recognize these as crucial areas of recovery. Therefore we require assessments on nutritional status, metabolism, and biochemistry, and we teach patients what this information means in terms of their recovery. Our detailed attention to the nutrition and exercise component of treatment reveals our dedication to these areas as part of a plan for a healthy, lasting recovery.
