Monte Nido & Affiliates Brings Residential Eating Disorder Program to Atlanta, GA

ATLANTA, Nov. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Monte Nido & Affiliates, one of the nation's leading providers of eating disorder treatment for over twenty-four years, announces the opening of a residential eating disorder treatment center in Sandy Springs, GA. Clementine Atlanta will provide programming for adolescents of all genders. This will be Monte Nido & Affiliates' second treatment center in the state of Georgia, joining Monte Nido Atlanta, which opened in early November 2020 offering residential eating disorder treatment to adults of all genders.

Clementine Atlanta will provide the highest level of care outside of a hospital, with 24-hour nursing in the comfort of a homelike environment. The outcome-backed program delivers sophisticated medical, psychiatric, clinical, and nutritional care. "Our programs are designed around the belief in a person's ability to become fully recovered," said Candy Henderson, MS, Chief Executive Officer of Monte Nido & Affiliates. "We specialize in delivering evidence-based treatment backed by decades of providing successful healing and recovery to clients nationwide."

Clementine Atlanta
Clementine Atlanta is a residential program exclusively for adolescents between the ages of 11 and 17 seeking treatment for anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder or exercise addiction. Treatment integrates personalized medical, psychiatric, clinical and nutritional care, as well as comprehensive academic and family support.

"With any eating disorder, early treatment intervention is optimal. Clementine gives adolescents customized treatment that correlates with long-term health and greatly improves chances of full recovery," said Joel Jahraus, MD, CEDS, FAED, Chief Medical Officer of Monte Nido & Affiliates. "Eating disorders do not discriminate, and we are proud to provide adolescents in the Atlanta metropolitan area and greater Southeast region an opportunity to remain close to home and their families while receiving needed care."

According to the National Eating Disorder Association, eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental health illness, and early intervention can be a major factor in recovery. Identifying and treating an eating disorder within the first three years of illness improves the speed of recovery, reduces symptoms and increases the likelihood of permanent healing. Clementine programs demonstrate effectiveness through treatment outcomes beyond weight restoration; analysis reveal clinically and statistically significant symptom reduction and improved quality of life from admission to discharge.

Monte Nido & Affiliates believes recovery is possible at any age irrespective of the duration of the eating disorder. For more information, or to inquire about treatment at Clementine Atlanta, please call 855-900-2221, or visit
