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.

If you are a client from New York State that may need financial assistance for eating disorder treatment, Clementine offers opportunities to receive care at discounted or no cost provided eligibility requirements are met and there is availability. Please contact us at clementineadmissions@clementineprograms.com to inquire.

A LETTER FROM CLEMENTINE BRIARCLIFF MANOR’S CLINICAL DIRECTOR:

We are excited you have chosen Clementine Briarcliff Manor as the next step in your journey toward healing and recovery. Here at Clementine, we challenge the age-old saying, “people just don’t change” because we know that people often want to change, but may need additional support on their recovery journey. Hand-in-hand, you will work with our experienced, compassionate treatment team toward a lasting and rewarding recovery. We will help you to flourish in your individuality and self-expression, all while addressing your unique treatment needs. Clementine is a safe place where our team will support you in creating sustainable changes to help you reclaim your strength and identity. The goal at Clementine is to provide you with a judgment-free environment with knowledgeable professionals to guide you. We will help you to move past your fears, discover that you no longer require self-destructive behaviors, and that those behaviors prevented your ability to fully thrive.
