Our Mission, Vision & Philosophy

Located in the beautiful northern coastal area of San Diego, California, Montecatini specializes in the treatment of eating disorders for female identifying and non-binary individuals ages 12 and up. Providing comprehensive care forĀ  anorexia, bulimia, binge-eating disorder, ARFID, and other forms of disordered eating, as well as co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders.

Our Mission

At Montecatini, we provide exceptional evidence-based treatment for eating disorders and co-occurring mental health conditions in a compassionate environment, for female and female-identifying and non-binary individuals ages 12 and up.

Our Vision

To create a supportive and nurturing community where individuals with eating disorders and mental health challenges can achieve sustainable recovery. We strive to empower our patients to function and thrive in their daily lives outside of treatment by fostering resilience, independence, and a renewed sense of self. Through our commitment to excellence in care, we envision a future where every patient can fully integrate back into their communities with confidence and hope.

Our Philosophy

At Montecatini, we believe in focusing on the whole person through an evidenced based approach to recovery, where the mind, body, and inner self are all essential components of well-being. Our philosophy is grounded in the following core values:

  • Community and Support: We create a therapeutic community where patients feel safe, understood, and supported by peers and staff alike. Building a strong sense of community is fundamental to fostering lasting recovery.
  • Individualized, Evidence-Based Care: We utilize the latest evidence-based practices and interventions to tailor our treatment plans to the specific needs of each patient. Our approach is rooted in clinical excellence and continuous improvement.
  • Multidisciplinary Collaboration: Our diverse team of professionals, including therapists, dietitians, medical staff, and exercise physiologists, work together to provide comprehensive care. We believe that collaboration enhances the effectiveness of treatment.
  • Empowerment and Independence: We focus on helping patients regain control over their lives, promoting self-efficacy and autonomy. Our goal is to equip patients with the skills and confidence needed to navigate life after treatment.
  • Support System Involvement: We are aware the identified support person(s) can differ from individual to individual. Recognizing the crucial role support plays in recovery, we actively involve the identified key support people in the treatment process through therapy sessions and education. Strengthening patient’s support systems is essential to sustaining recovery.
  • Commitment to Excellence: We are dedicated to maintaining the highest standards of care, continually evaluating, and refining our practices to ensure the best outcomes for our patients. Our commitment to excellence is reflected in our compassionate care and unwavering support for our patients and their families.

By embracing these core values, Montecatini remains steadfast in its mission to support individuals in their journey toward recovery, helping them rebuild their lives and rejoin their communities with strength and resilience.

I would recommend Montecatini to any person on the planet because I know they will be getting the best care this world has to offer.
