S, Monarch Cove Alumna
The entire team (from initial phone call to discharge) helped save my life. I had an amazing therapist who was able to work with my severe trauma, and she helped me work through the roots of my 30 year old eating disorder.

Monarch Cove Treatment Center, located on the beautiful Monterey Peninsula in California, provides highly individualized and compassionate treatment for eating disorders. Our professional clinicians believe that eating disorder treatment must keep the client and their unique history at the center of care, and that respect and compassion guide all parts of the recovery process.

Our continuum of care offers specialized treatment for anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder (BED), and the many other serious eating disorders that fall into the EDNOS category (eating disorders not otherwise specified).
Treatment for Eating Disorders at Monarch Cove
A multidisciplinary primary-team approach is taken at Monarch Cove. The primary team consists of a licensed therapist, licensed dietitian, and a psychiatrist. Monarch Cove utilizes evidenced-based eating disorder treatment, supported by real-life skills development and practice. By utilizing these new skills both within the safety of the treatment center, and also during experiential field trips, the client becomes comfortable and confident in their ability to succeed in their recovery journey. Monarch Cove’s unique treatment atmosphere fosters a trusting relationship between the client and their primary team. It takes time, attention, and consistency to develop the trusting relationship, and at Monarch Cove we believe this helps clients move more effectively into recovery.

Simultaneous treatment of anxiety, depression, and mental health issues means that the forward progress of the recovery is maintained. We also assist the client dealing eating disorders who may also be struggling with substance abuse or processing addictions. At Monarch Cove we treat the whole person, not just the disease process.
Importance of a Therapeutic Atmosphere for Eating Disorder Treatment
Helping those who suffer from eating disorders transition into healthier lives is more than just the right treatment, provided at the right time, in the right intensity. A therapeutic atmosphere is also essential. Monarch Cove’s spectacular natural setting on the Pacific Coast provides the fresh air and serene outdoor spaces that are an important part of the healing process. Our treatment and residential facilities are upscale, but warm, comfortable, and homelike. Recovery from an eating disorder involves hard work. Nutrition and rest are key components to healthy recovery, and Monarch Cove Treatment Center is designed to maximize both.
We offer distinct levels of care at our eating disorder treatment center. Each provides expert therapy by a team licensed professionals with certification and expertise in the many sub-specialties that enhance client-specific eating disorder treatment.

- Residential Treatment
- Partial Hospitalization Program (housing is complimentary is this program, unlike most other centers who charge a housing fee for this level of care)
- Intensive Outpatient
Each level of care offers a spectrum of evidence-based treatment that addresses the eating disorder and any co-occurring disorders. Each primary team at Monarch Cove Treatment Center is supported by additional specialists with experience and certification to meet the client’s particular constellation of needs, such as trauma issues, or male eating disorders. Family treatment and an experiential Family Week is also integrated into each client’s individualized care plan.
