In our Monte Nido residential programs, we combine evidence-based treatment with strategies and protocols that have proven positive outcomes

Our specialized Monte Nido philosophy is at the cornerstone of our treatment approach. State-of-the-art treatment is provided to all genders through a combination of group therapy modalities, nutrition education, meal support, mindfulness training, medical and psychiatric care and psychotherapeutic support. Clients work on behavior, mood, relationship, movement, food and weight goals while they advance through our level system, gaining increased freedom and responsibility for handling recovery challenges. The tools, skills and ongoing support services help clients to become fully recovered and to maintain their recovery. Our Health-At-Every-Size (HAES) informed and gender-affirming care is reflected in our programs through:

Monte Nido provides individualized treatment expected of all of our programs, including:

  • High levels of medical and psychiatric care, with 24-hour nursing, in the comfort of a home setting
  • Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) to address co-occurring PTSD in all programs, providing the ability to seamlessly continue this therapy through all levels of care
  • Motivational enhancement approaches to support behavior change
  • Nutritional programming that meets differing nutritional needs
  • Skills development through evidence-based treatments such as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • High staff-to-client ratio and comprehensive discharge planning

Our gender and HAES-informed care reflects the following in all residential programs:

  • Recognition that healthy, recovered people come in all shapes and sizes
  • Behavior focused, rather than weight focused philosophies
  • Recognition that all bodies deserve to be nourished and experience satiety
  • Openness and accessibility of our kitchens and foods in a homelike setting
  • Ability to request and be provided more food for nourishment and/or satiety throughout the day
  • Belief that weight loss attempts and focus are contraindicated for recovery from all eating disorder diagnoses


Many potential clients and family members may ask, “Does your program work?” “Do you have any statistics on the benefits of treatment at Monte Nido?” We have been evaluating the short- and long-term benefits of our services for some years now and have published the outcome study of residential eating disorder clients. The vast majority of our clients demonstrated significant changes in symptoms and behaviors from admission to discharge and maintained those improvements throughout the course of the study.   Click here to read more about outcomes at the residential level of care.
