Monte Nido River Towns

Monte Nido River Towns, just north of Manhattan in Westchester County, sits on an estate of 11 acres in a park-like setting, providing treatment to adult females. Clients can step down to one our Monte Nido day treatment programs across the country, including two nearby in Westchester County or Manhattan.

Monte Nido River Towns is Joint Commission Accredited.

Monte Nido’s treatment approach focuses on the restoration of physiological and nutritional balance, the implementation of healthy eating and exercise routines, the elimination of destructive behaviors and the development of motivation and treatment engagement.

Our objective is to help each client achieve a clear understanding of their eating and/or exercise disorder and its effect on their life, as well as an individualized appreciation of what is necessary for their personal recovery.

We help our clients with the following:

 

  • Eliminate restrictive behaviors and work toward the reduction and elimination of other eating disorder and exercise disorder behaviors
  • Heal their relationship with food while addressing weight, nutrition, exercise and disordered thoughts and behaviors
  • Achieve nutritional, metabolic and medical balance
  • Develop insight into disordered thinking, attitudes and behaviors; the underlying causes of their eating or exercise disorder; and their destructive patterns in self care and relationships
  • Understand the connections between food- and body-related behaviors and emotions
  • Practice appropriate expression of feelings
  • Work toward achieving and maintaining a healthy body weight while learning how to stop using numbers to measure self-worth
  • Improve body image and work on acceptance of natural body size and shape
  • Learn and utilize lifelong recovery skills, such as journaling and self-monitoring
  • Work with families and significant others to identify and modify patterns that may be complicating recovery
  • Develop an effective aftercare plan that includes strategies for relapse prevention and arrangements that ensure a smooth transition to aftercare providers

A Letter from Monte Nido River Towns's Clinical Director

If you are reading this, you likely have at least a part of you that believes things can get better. I believe strongly in the possibility of complete recovery from an eating disorder, and I also know it’s one of the hardest things a person can choose to do. I feel incredibly privileged to have walked beside many wonderful souls on their path towards healing. Those journeys have not been easy, but they have been rewarding, beautiful, messy and worthwhile. And, no two have been exactly alike. For this reason, I believe individualized treatment for the whole person and their supporters is essential in creating a strong foundation for lasting recovery.

My responsibility, and my promise to you, is to provide a safe and nurturing environment in which to heal both body and soul. I believe in a respectful, kind and honest approach in guiding you and your loved ones as you challenge your eating disorder and move towards greater authenticity and balance in your life. My hope is that you are able to build a new relationship with food, your loved ones and yourself through your work at Monte Nido. Together, our team can support you to create the life you want and deserve.

Gillian-Tanz
Sincerely,
Gillian Tanz
MSW, LCSW | CLINICAL DIRECTOR
