Monte Nido & Affiliates Expands Eating Disorder Treatment in Chicagoland with New Day Treatment Location
CHICAGO (Jan. 16, 2024) - Monte Nido & Affiliates, one of the leading eating disorder treatment providers in the country, today announces a new day treatment program, Monte Nido Chicago Eating Disorder Day Treatment. Located in Lombard, Ill., about 45 minutes from downtown Chicago, this program provides eating disorder treatment for adolescents and adults of all genders. Monte Nido & Affiliates has two residential programs in the area, and this new day treatment program will allow clients to transition from 24/7 care to outpatient therapy, which is proven to support lasting recovery.
“As the prevalence of eating disorders increases among both adults and adolescents, ensuring widespread access to care has become increasingly crucial,” said Cassie McLean, Chief Executive Officer of Monte Nido & Affiliates. “Our goal is to enhance the availability of treatment for all those in need, and this new day treatment program will provide more individuals in the Chicago area with life-saving care and improve their chances of achieving full recovery.”
Monte Nido Chicago Day Treatment provides care for those with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, ARFID, OSFED and other eating disorders. The program offers personalized, evidence-based treatment for adults and adolescents through a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). Clients will participate in group and individual therapy, as well as benefit from the program’s clinical, medical, psychiatric and nutritional expertise and experience real-life challenges.
“Our program offers personalized treatment approaches tailored to meet the distinct needs of each individual,” said Melissa Spann, PhD, LMHC, CEDS-C, Chief Clinical Officer of Monte Nido & Affiliates. “Early intervention is key to achieving recovery, but we believe that, equipped with the appropriate tools and support, recovery is achievable at any stage of an individual's journey with their eating disorder.”
Considering the substantial occurrence of PTSD among individuals experiencing eating disorders, Monte Nido Chicago Day Treatment will provide evidence-based trauma treatments that incorporate cognitive processing therapy (CPT), a gold standard approach to trauma treatment. Support for this groundbreaking approach comes from recent cutting-edge research, indicating that clients who underwent this integrated clinical approach demonstrated notable improvement, and this improvement was maintained six months after discharge.
Monte Nido Chicago Day Treatment is one of three Monte Nido & Affiliates programs in the Chicagoland area, complementing two residential programs – Clementine Chicago, located in Naperville, for adolescents and Monte Nido Chicago, located in Winfield, for adults.
Outcomes research indicates that individuals who step-down from a Monte Nido & Affiliates residential program to a Monte Nido & Affiliates day treatment program have improved scores on eating disorder and depression measures at six-months post discharge when compared to those who do not step-down to a Monte Nido & Affiliates day treatment program.
