MALIBU, Calif., Oct. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Monte Nido & Affiliates, a Joint-Commission accredited leading provider of treatment for eating disorders, with 18 locations nationally, will open the Eating Disorder Center of Newport Beach on October 27, 2016.

The new center offers partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient treatment programming for adolescents and adults with anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, and exercise addiction. Monte Nido's treatment approach focuses on the restoration of physiological and nutritional balance, the elimination of destructive behaviors and the development of motivation and treatment engagement. This treatment approach is supported by Monte Nido's decade-long post-graduate outcome study on residential eating disorder clients.  Monte Nido Newport Beach will also provide specialized integrated treatment of substance use disorder, focusing on stabilizing symptoms, reducing urges, enhancing motivation and developing alternative coping capacities. In the study, the vast majority of clients demonstrated significant changes in symptoms and behaviors from admission to discharge—and maintained that improvement throughout the course of the study.

"For close to two decades, we've been asked to expand our program to other areas in Southern California," said Keesha Amezcua, MA, LMFT, CEDS, Vice President of Clinical Programs. "Our program is unique for its emphasis on using evidence-based treatment as a cornerstone, with a team of recovered professionals that believe in a client's ability to become fully recovered."

"For years I have admired Monte Nido's philosophy which includes restoring biochemical functioning and nutritional balance, implementing healthy eating and exercise habits in order to help patients change unhealthy behaviors," commented Kelly Souza, PsyD, Clinical Director of Monte Nido Newport Beach. "As with all Monte Nido programs, clients are seen by a comprehensive and experienced multi-disciplinary treatment team that I am honored to lead here at our Newport Beach program."

Treatment at Monte Nido Newport Beach includes:

  • Partial Hospitalization Program six days per week
  • Intensive Outpatient Program up to five days per week
  • High number of individual therapy sessions
  • Group therapy that solidifies and establishes other components of treatment
  • Unique level system which helps client's achieve a clear understanding of their eating disorders, the disorders' effect on their lives and treatment necessary for personal recovery.
