At Montecatini, we believe in treating the mind, body, and spirit. Our holistic approach to treatment addresses the complexity of the disorder by utilizing several different treatment modalities. We understand each individual is unique and because Montecatini is a small facility, we are able to design a detailed and customized treatment plan which incorporates specific program components for every patient.

Our PHP is offered Monday through Friday and includes supervised meals and snacks as well as weekly sessions with our Primary Therapist, Dietician, and Psychiatrist. An individual schedule is tailored for each patient following a clinical assessment.

Our overall mission is to help our patients live lives that are not only functional but joyful as well.
