Briarcliff Manor | NY
Clementine Briarcliff Manor is a unique 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 will be offered. Clementine Briarcliff Manor is the only licensed residential treatment center for adolescents in the state of New York and is structured to accommodate Kosher needs at Orthodox standards. Clementine Briarcliff Manor, 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 New England and the Mid-Atlantic states 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 Briarcliff Manor is in network with Aetna, Blue Cross / Blue Shield, Beacon Health Options, ComPsych, Multiplan, Three Rivers, and at times can secure single case agreements with others.

A LETTER FROM CLEMENTINE BRIARCLIFF MANOR’S CLINICAL DIRECTOR:
Adolescence is a time of growth and struggle. It can be both anxiety provoking and exciting navigating new challenges and figuring out one’s place in the world. When grappling with eating disordered thoughts and feelings it complicates this process even more, planting seeds of doubt and fear. At Clementine, 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 I have faith that when your struggles are explored without judgment and new skills are integrated into your daily life, subtle yet powerful transformations will occur. These subtle shifts lead to great change and incredible emotional and spiritual growth. This growth is the gift that truly makes this difficult yet amazing journey of recovery so worthwhile.
