Center for Discovery San Diego provides residential treatment for adult women, teens and adolescents with eating disorders. Our program specializes in providing eating disorder treatment for adult women as well as adolescents and teens, both male and female. Eating disorder treatment for teens and adolescents is provided in separate locations to those that provide treatment for adult women. At Center for Discovery San Diego, eating disorder treatment is not one of our programs, it is the program. Eating disorders cannot hide here. All of our therapits are full-time members of the Center for Discovery team and each member of our team is deeply committed to the healing and well-being of our residents and their families. All floor staff are college graduates, most pursuing higher degrees and all members of the treatment team meet at least once a week to discuss the progress and treatment for every resident. Our team is extremely effective at addressing denial and any lack of understanding about the severity of eating disorders. Helping our residents understand their eating disorder and identify the eating disorder cycle and what emotional contributors are underlying the problem is our focus.
We believe that teens and women with eating disorders need and deserve specialized treatment, which is why our proprietary treatment model focuses on the personalized treatment that is required to affect emotional, social, behavioral, and spiritual growth. For over 15 years, we have been dedicated to helping our residents with eating disorders achieve long-term recovery. We have developed our proprietary, family based process and gained a legacy of successful treatment of eating disorders. The Center for Discovery process closely involves family members as a support system for recovery. As part of our process, we include therapeutic family meals and events, a minimum of four hours with a therapist per week and four hours, on average, per day of group therapy. This level of therapy would not be possible in many settings. Center for Discovery locations are located within residential neighborhoods. This home-like setting and location provide an environment that allows the focus to be on treatment, not on other environmental factors. Eating disorder treatment at Center for Discovery San Diego also includes hands-on nutrition and food preparation skills and training to help residents become more comfortable and familiar with food and food preparation.

As a leader in the field of residential eating disorder treatment, we know that seeking residential treatment can be a hard decision.
