We know consideration of an adolescent’s educational needs is an important component of treatment. At Clementine, a personalized education plan with a multi-disciplinary approach to learning begins upon admission, and we are committed to integrating where each adolescent is at academically, balancing what is in the best interest of her recovery. We believe an important part of residential treatment is preparing them for the real world outside of residential treatment and the back-to-school readiness component is key.
Our goal is to help teens to restore healthy and normal adolescent development. Healthy development is one of the key factors for solidifying a foundation for full recovery from an ED. Supporting our teens’ intellectual, cognitive and educational development is a key component of that process and we view our educational program as an essential part of our treatment program.
Research has shown that teens with eating disorders are particularly vulnerable to the stresses of developmental and academic transitions. We pay particular attention to helping our teens manage these real life transitions and the demands of their academic careers through the development of self-care and stress management skills.
