Research shows that most people with anorexia also showed signs of an anxiety disorder several years before the start of their eating disorder, and other co-occurrences are common. Monte Nido Atlanta will offer programming for adults of all genders with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder and/or exercise dependency, as well as co-occurring conditions including trauma, and psychiatric presentations. The program's treatment approach focuses on the restoration of physiological and nutritional balance, the implementation of mindful eating and exercise routines, the elimination of destructive behaviors and the development of motivation for recovery.
Clementine Atlanta is a 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 clinical and nutritional care, as well as comprehensive academic and family support. Clementine Atlanta marks the company's first adolescent program that will treat all genders.
"Eating disorders do not discriminate, and we are proud to provide adults and adolescents of all genders treatment in the Southeast region, allowing them to remain closer to home and their families," said Joel Jahraus, MD, CEDS, FAED, Chief Medical Officer of Monte Nido & Affiliates.
