ROCKLAND, N.Y., Jan. 24, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Monte Nido & Affiliates, one of the largest and leading eating disorder platforms in the country, announces the upcoming opening of a new residential eating disorder center in New City, N.Y. Opening this spring, Monte Nido Rockland will provide care for adults of all genders with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder and/or exercise addiction.
"Eating disorders, such as anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa, can happen to anyone – any gender, any race or ethnicity and any age," said Cassie McLean, Chief Executive Officer of Monte Nido & Affiliates. "With the prevalence of eating disorders on the rise, we are striving to impact current statistics by connecting individuals to the life-saving care and support they need, as early intervention can be a major factor in recovery."

Reflecting Health-at Every-Size (HAES)-informed and gender-affirming care, the programming will also implement group therapy, nutrition education, meal support and mindfulness training.
"Through highly individualized and informed care, our state-of-the-art treatment helps each client achieve a clear understanding of their eating disorder and its effect on their life, as well as gain understanding of what is necessary for their recovery," said Melissa Spann, PhD, LMHC, CEDS-S, Chief Clinical Officer of Monte Nido & Affiliates.

Monte Nido Rockland will be the sixth Monte Nido program in the state of New York. This program compliments three existing Monte Nido residential locations, Monte Nido Glen Cove and Monte Nido Western New York, which serve adults of all genders, and, Monte Nido River Towns, serving adult females. The two other Monte Nido programs offer in-person day treatment programming in Westchester County and Manhattan, and virtual programming for other residents of the region.
