Information for Referring Hospitals

Your Patients are Our Priority

Our residential programs provide the highest level of medical and psychiatric care outside of a hospital within a homelike setting.

Why Monte Nido & Affiliates?

  • Expert Medical & Psychiatric Oversight. We have child and adolescent psychiatry and adolescent medicine doctors on staff.
  • 24/7 Nursing. We emphasize safety in all facets of treatment as adolescents often have serious medical complications from their illness.
  • Trusted Outcomes. We are the first eating disorder program to provide evidence-based PTSD treatment and groundbreaking research showing that clients’ improvements last.
  • Academic Integration. We work with an adolescent’s school to create a personalized education plan.
  • Nutritional Programming. Using principles of mindful eating, we offer opportunities for family support and to increase autonomy in recovery.
  • In-Network. We strive to make treatment accessible by working with many insurance companies and coordinate single-case agreements for those not in-network.
