Atlanta | GA

Clementine Atlanta, located in the beautifully-appointed suburban Atlanta community of Sandy Springs, plans to open in late 2020. Clementine Atlanta will be a residential program exclusively for adolescents between the ages of 11 to 17 seeking treatment for Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder or Exercise Dependency. 

Clementine Atlanta, similar to Monte Nido & Affiliates other Clementine programs, will provide the highest level of medical and psychiatric care outside of a hospital setting, with 24-hour nursing. Treatment is integrated with personalized clinical and nutritional care and comprehensive academic and family support.

At Clementine, our mission is to help adolescents replace their eating disorder with healthy skills and a deep understanding of how to live a life that reflects their individuality.

A LETTER FROM REGIONAL DIRECTOR OF CLINICAL SERVICES:

For a teenager, it can be both anxiety provoking and exciting navigating new challenges and figuring out their place in the world. When grappling with eating disordered thoughts and feelings, this process can be complicated even more, planting seeds of doubt and fear. At Clementine Atlanta, we believe you and your loved ones can connect to a place of hope – a place where your eating disorder doesn’t feel necessary to cope. Within our community there is space to not only speak your truth and face your fears, but experience laughter, friendship and adventure. Part of this adventure is empowering you to connect to a healthy sense of self that will move you toward being fully recovered. It won’t always be easy, but together we will explore without judgment and new skills will be integrated into your daily life leading to subtle yet powerful transformations. This growth is the gift that truly makes this difficult yet amazing journey of recovery so worthwhile.
