Malibu Lake | CA

Clementine Malibu Lake, opening in early 2018, located in the Santa Monica Mountains near Agoura Hills, is a residential treatment program exclusively for adolescent girls between the ages of 12 to 17 seeking treatment for Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder, or Exercise Addiction. Clementine Malibu Lake, similar to our other Clementine programs, provides the highest level of medical and psychiatric care outside of a hospital. Treatment is integrated with personalized clinical and nutritional care and comprehensive academic and family support. Adolescents from the region and through California will benefit from the care they need closer to home.

 

At Clementine, our goal is to help make treatment accessible and we are committed to working with families to access care. Clementine Malibu Lake will work to secure single case agreements with your insurance provider. Please see our Financial Considerations page for more information.

Its with great excitement that we look forward to opening our doors to the Malibu Lakes area in the upcoming months. At Clementine, we support adolescents and their families on the path to full recovery by preparing each adolescent to navigate the challenges of life free of the eating disorder. We provide the empathy, education, and support to families as partners in the recovery process. We help each adolescent to replace the eating disorder with healthy skills and a deep understanding of how to live a life  that reflects their own unique individuality. Our healing environment and nurturing team of professionals will offer support, guidance and inspiration along the path to recovery.
