Residential care is often the most beneficial treatment approach to take when dealing with an eating disorder. Due to the all-consuming nature of these disorders, taking part in a residential treatment program can afford you the ability to step away from the stresses of your everyday life and focus solely on your recovery.
At Montecatini, our goal is to provide a beautiful, safe, and nurturing environment where you can feel comfortable, supported, and encouraged as you navigate the recovery process. Our staff members are not only highly trained in the fields of eating disorders and mental health, but they are also truly empathetic toward the afflictions that are plaguing you, as many of them have overcome their own struggles with eating disorders and addictions. We firmly believe that healing is possible and that hope is manifested every day as we work together to help you successfully achieve your long-term recovery goals.
