Welcome to Montecatini.

Since opening our doors in 1991, we have successfully helped hundreds of women heal their relationship with food and their bodies. Our highly trained, multi-disciplinary team of professionals utilizes a variety of integrative modalities that are proven effective in addressing the physiological, nutritional, and interpersonal effects of an eating disorder. Clients have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of evidence-based, clinically grounded activities, including more traditional forms of individual, group, and family therapy, innovative experiential therapies, and supervised real-world experiences. Our goal is always to create lasting recovery, and to manifest hope every day.

At Montecatini, we see the beauty and strength in our clients no matter how lost they feel or how much their eating disorder has darkened their world. We believe that your true self lives beneath the surface layer of the eating disorder, and during every moment of the recovery process, we are here to remind you that she is worth fighting for, and without a doubt, beautiful.
