Stepping Down from Residential Treatment

At a certain point in your daughter’s treatment at Clementine, you will work with her clinical team to determine the next steps after residential treatment. If a Monte Nido day treatment program is recommended and there is one in your nearby community, we have taken care to provide a seamless clinical and logistical continuum that helps build on your daughter’s progress in addressing her eating disorder.

This coordination includes:

  • Telephone bridge sessions between your daughter and a clinician from the Monte Nido day treatment program prior to transitioning to the lower level of care. This partnership also facilitates ease in connecting back to Clementine clinical team, if needed
  • Overview of the day treatment program structure and schedule and information on the programs clinical leadership.
  • Communication with the Monte Nido day treatment team
