Monte Nido & Affiliates, a California-based provider of treatment for eating and activity disorders, opened a residential treatment program for adolescent girls in Briarcliff Manor this month.
The treatment program, Clementine Briarcliff Manor, is housed in an 8,000-square-foot mansion at 233 Pine Road and is open exclusively to girls ages 12 to 17 who struggle with eating disorders. The center sits in a residential neighborhood next to the Trump National Golf Club Westchester.
The company opened a similar facility in Irvington in 2014, transforming a mansion at 100 S. Broadway into a center for those who suffer from eating disorders. Monte Nido soon after attempted to open a second facility, first in Irvington and later in Scarsdale, though opposition led to the project’s demise in both communities.
Monte Nido fared better in Briarcliff Manor, where the town board chose not to oppose plans for the facility, which are authorized under New York’s Padavan Law.
“Serious growth and development issues may occur with eating disorders, and research demonstrates the need to treat the eating disorder as early in the course of the illness as possible,” said medical director and board-certified adolescent psychiatrist Lauren Ozbolt. “At Clementine, we uphold the highest standards of care and safety throughout the course of treatment.”
Monte Nido operates residential and outpatient eating disorder and exercise addiction treatment programs in California, Oregon, New York, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania.
