Since opening our doors in 1991, we have successfully treated hundreds of women with eating disorders. Our treatment philosophy focuses on walking alongside you as you begin your journey towards healing, and we believe that successful treatment requires you to be cared for as a whole person. Therefore, in the context of a positive, respectful, and culturally-sensitive environment, we employ holistic, evidence-based methods to treat each woman’s unique mind, body, and soul.

During your stay with us, you will work closely with a team of caring and expert professionals who are dedicated to helping you grow and heal. Our treatment team includes:
A psychiatrist
Registered dieticians
Licensed clinical professional counselors
Licensed marriage and family therapists
Licensed clinical social workers
Registered nurses
Physician’s assistants
Client assistants
Licensed vocational nurses
24-hour nursing staff
While at Montecatini, you will play an integral role in planning your treatment and will work with your primary therapist and other treatment staff to develop a treatment experience that most closely fits your own needs, as well as your unique challenges and dreams for the future. Our program is structured to provide you with consistency, and our low client-to-staff ratio allows you to receive the personalized attention that will help set you on a path to lifelong recovery.

Additionally, your care does not end once you have completed our residential treatment. In the interest of helping you maximize your ability to recover successfully, we provide a full range of aftercare services including partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programming options. We begin discharge planning starting on your first day of admission to ensure that you are fully supported during your transition out of residential care, and to help you step down from residential treatment to partial hospitalization, to intensive outpatient care.

What sets us apart

We understand how eating disorders can create strong feelings of disconnection in the body. It is common for our clients to struggle with a disordered relationship with movement- either over exercising or avoiding exercise all together. At Montecatini, we believe in the power of creating a balanced and joyful relationship with movement to support our clients as they leave treatment and embark on their unique recovery journeys. Montecatini’s Wellness Center is a nurturing space where clients can rekindle this special relationship in a safe and supportive environment through exposure work and individual exercise plans tailored to their specify needs.

Treatment Models

Montecatini’s mission is one of hope and long-term recovery. We believe treatment is a collaborative process and consider the client an essential part of the treatment team. Our goal is to help our clients return to lives that are not only functional, but joyful as well.
