Monte Nido & Affiliates Expands Eating Disorder Treatment in Washington, D.C. with New Day Treatment Location
WASHINGTON (Feb. 12, 2024) - Monte Nido & Affiliates, one of the leading eating disorder treatment providers in the country, today announces a new day treatment program, Monte Nido Tysons Corner Eating Disorder Day Treatment. Located in Tysons Corner, about 15 miles from downtown Washington, this program provides eating disorder treatment for adolescents ages 11 to 17 of all genders and will accept adult clients soon. 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.
“With eating disorders on the rise for both adults and adolescents, expanding access to care has never been more important,” said Cassie McLean, Chief Executive Officer of Monte Nido & Affiliates. “We're striving to make treatment more accessible to everyone who needs it, and this new program will connect more individuals in the DC area to life-saving care and increase their opportunity to attain full recovery.”
Through a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), clients of all genders participate in group and individual therapy, benefit from Monte Nido Tysons Corner Day Treatment’s clinical, medical, psychiatric and nutritional expertise and experience real-life challenges. The team of eating disorder professionals at the program provides treatment for those with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, ARFID, OSFED and other eating disorders.
“Our program offers personalized treatment approaches tailored to meet the distinct needs of each individual,” said Melissa Spann, PhD, CEDS-C, Chief Clinical Officer of Monte Nido & Affiliates. “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 Tysons Corner Day Treatment will provide evidence-based trauma treatments that incorporate cognitive processing therapy (CPT), a gold standard approach to trauma treatment.
Monte Nido Tysons Corner Day Treatment is one of three Monte Nido & Affiliates programs in Virginia, complementing two residential programs for adolescents – Clementine Fairfax, located in Fairfax Station, and Clementine Twin Lakes, located in Clifton.
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.
