CLIFTON, Va., Sept. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Monte Nido & Affiliates announces the opening of Clementine, the newest

eating disorder treatment center exclusively for adolescent girls aged twelve to seventeen in Fairfax County, Virginia. Clementine will debut its newest residential treatment center this October.

Overseen by Chief

Medical Officer Joel Jahraus, MD, FAED, CEDS and Medical Director and Board Certified Psychiatrist Molly McShane, MD, FAED, CEDS, Clementine's medical, psychiatric and clinical teams offer decades of experience treating adolescents and their families.

"Eating disorders are devastating from both a psychological and medical perspective," said Chief Medical Officer Joel Jahraus, MD, FAED, CEDS. "Serious growth and development issues may occur with eating disorders and research demonstrates the need to treat the eating disorder as early in the course of the illness as possible. At Clementine, we uphold the highest standards of care and safety throughout the course of treatment."

Echoed by Dr. McShane, "Eating disorders are very serious, yet curable mental disorders that affect millions of adolescents each year. We are thrilled to have designed a program specifically for adolescents and their loved ones. Families will not only appreciate the environment we have created for their daughter's recovery, but also the genuine care, competence and creativity of our staff and the comprehensive academic support and philosophy of collaboration with outpatient providers, schools and families."

Studies show when an individual struggles with an eating disorder for more than three years, recovery becomes more difficult. At Clementine, adolescents receive customized treatment that significantly correlates with long-term health and full recovery. Located in an intimate home-like setting, Clementine provides personalized and sophisticated care with the latest research and treatment methodologies for adolescents struggling with eating disorders. We offer the highest level of care outside of a hospital setting; providing state-of-the-art medical, psychiatric, nutritional and clinical approaches sensitive to the developmental needs of adolescent girls.

Clementine adolescent treatment programs are located in Florida, Oregon, New York, California and Virginia.
