Monte Nido Mountain Nest

Nestled in the foothills of Malibu Canyon on two acres of pine, oak, sycamore and fruit trees, the Monte Nido eating disorder treatment program lives up to its name, “Mountain Nest”. Monte Nido is our original location, opening its doors in 1996, and was the first licensed eating disorder treatment program providing care in a home-like setting. Surrounded by a state park with hiking trails leading to the beach, Monte Nido is located in a secluded home in Calabasas, right outside of Malibu. It is equipped for six clients, with its own gym, private bath and deck in each bedroom overlooking a giant oak.

Monte Nido Mountain Nest is Joint Commission Accredited.

A Letter from Monte Nido Mountain Nest's Clinical Director

Living with an eating disorder can be a lonely and isolating existence; though the idea of changing can feel daunting and overwhelming. At Monte Nido, we know these feelings and understand this conflict. We know how small life can become and how complicated it can feel to approach the recovery process. Having time and space to talk about the feelings that come along with an eating disorder and the recovery process is an important part of the journey. The staff at Monte Nido believe recovery happens when you are able to transition from your eating disordered behaviors to the relationships with staff and peers, and ultimately, to the relationships in your life. Throughout the recovery process, building deep, meaningful and soul guided relationships can lead to a fully recovered life, one that you may have believed was unattainable. Watching individuals transform their lives from the emptiness of an eating disorder to the fullness of life is what makes this work so rewarding and fulfilling.

I have never experienced such unconditional love, support and more than that hope, a home that is so full of love and care, and nothing but safety.
