Monte Nido & Affiliates Expands Eating Disorder Treatment with New Location in Portland
Program will expand access to care for adolescents and adults
PORTLAND, Ore. (Nov. 13, 2023) – Monte Nido & Affiliates, one of the leading eating disorder treatment providers in the country, today announces the expansion and re-location of Monte Nido Portland Eating Disorder Day Treatment. The program, minutes away from downtown Portland, provides eating disorder treatment for adolescents and adults of all genders.
"The prevalence of eating disorders is increasing, posing a threat to people of all ages and backgrounds," said Cassie McLean, Chief Executive Officer of Monte Nido & Affiliates. "We believe recovery is possible for anyone with the right tools and support, so expanding access to care will help more people in the Portland area receive the life-saving care they need.”
Through a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), adults and adolescents of all genders participate in group and individual therapy, benefit from Monte Nido Portland’s clinical, medical, psychiatric and nutritional expertise and experience real-life challenges. Monte Nido Portland treats people with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, ARFID, OSFED, and other eating disorders.
“Monte Nido provides personalized treatment tailored to address the unique needs of each individual,” said Melissa Spann, PhD, LMHC, CEDS-C, Chief Clinical Officer of Monte Nido & Affiliates. “Our comprehensive system of care ensures we treat clients with a multidimensional approach and includes relational focus, trusted outcomes, cultural awareness, and building resilience through a trauma-informed approach.”
Given the significant prevalence of PTSD among individuals with eating disorders, Monte Nido Portland will provide evidence-based trauma treatments that incorporate cognitive processing therapy (CPT), a gold standard approach to trauma treatment. This groundbreaking strategy is supported by recent research, which indicates that individuals who underwent this comprehensive clinical approach demonstrated significant improvement and maintained these improvements for six months after their discharge.
Monte Nido Portland is one of five Monte Nido & Affiliates programs in the state of Oregon, complementing the day treatment program in Eugene and residential programs in Springfield, West Linn (adults) and West Linn (adolescents).
