Monte Nido’s Eating Disorder Center of California believe a supportive environment and connected community help people to learn, blossom and encourage them beyond what they could have done alone. We work hard to help clients develop an understanding of how their eating disorder works and what fuels it – and how to connect to their values and intentions; who they are, not what they look like. Monte Nido’s Eating Disorder Center of California provides programming for female or male adult and adolescent clients that need a partial hospitalization or intensive outpatient level of care for recovery, or as a transition option related to the Monte Nido Residential Treatment Program or other residential facilities. It is located in a modern office structure in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles, California, with client accommodation adjacent to the program.

Adolescent Day Treatment Programming
Monte Nido is sensitive to the developmental needs of adolescents, and our highly trained and supportive staff takes a holistic approach to helping them become fully recovered. We understand the complexity of eating disorders, and offer unique programming to treat adolescents, whether they are stepping down from a residential treatment center or seeking a partial hospitalization or intensive outpatient level of care while living at home. Using the same philosophy, protocols, and approaches offered at other Monte Nido programs, our adolescent day treatment programming is geared toward adolescent clinical and developmental issues, diligently maintaining a positive and healthy environment. Program offerings include Psychotherapy groups and therapeutic content that appropriately reflect the specific developmental and social needs of adolescents, Family programming, Academic support, Psychiatric management and more. When ready, adolescents can step down from partial hospitalization to Monte Nido’s intensive outpatient programming (IOP), which offers continued clinical support and containment while allowing for full school engagement.

Advantages of Treating Adolescents and Adults in the Same Milieu
Adults, by virtue of maturation, may often have developed a greater perspective for what the eating disorder has cost them in terms of their physical and relational wellbeing. Even young adults have a greater capacity to look forward and begin to wrestle with the implications of moving through their lives without fully resolving their eating disorder. Combining adolescents and adults in day treatment programs helps bridge this motivational divide.
