Southern California’s Leading Residential Treatment Program

At Montecatini, the premier residential eating disorder treatment center in Southern California, each client benefits from a highly tailored, comprehensive treatment experience to help promote lasting, long term recovery.

Residential Programming at Montecatini

Located just miles from the ocean in Carlsbad, California, Montecatini offers a picturesque and tranquil setting where you can work towards overcoming the struggles that you may be facing as a result of anorexia, bulimia, binge-eating disorder, or related concerns. With care that is offered in a beautiful, peaceful, and home-like setting, Montecatini can provide you with a detailed and customized treatment program that is tailored to meet your specific needs, address each of your concerns, and emphasize your personal strengths.

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.

Our Philosophy

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. 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.

We believe in treating the mind, body, and spirit. Our holistic approach addresses the complexities of the disorders that we treat by utilizing several different treatment modalities, all of which have proven effectiveness in the treatment of eating disorders. We make it our goal to ensure that all of these therapeutic interventions will result in you having life-changing, positive experiences during your time spent at Montecatini.
