Our Specialty: Helping Teens and Adolescents with Eating Disorders
Center for Discovery San Diego is a residential treatment center located in the La Jolla area, solely dedicated to helping teens and adolescents with eating disorders. Eating disorders cannot hide here. Our team is particularly effective at dealing with any denial or lack of understanding about the severity of eating disorders. Each member of our team is deeply passionate and committed to the healing and well-being of our residents and their families. At Center for Discovery San Diego, we focus on providing the specialized and personalized care that helps our residents on their path to long term recovery.
For over 15 years, Center for Discovery has been dedicated to providing eating disorder treatment for teens and adolescents, both female and male, ages 10 to 18. At Center for Discovery San Diego, teen eating disorder treatment is not one of our programs, it is the program. We understand that adolescents and teens dealing with eating disorders deserve and need specialized treatment. By treating only teens and adolescents with eating disorders as primary diagnoses, we are able to provide the most specialized treatment for our residents. Specialized treatment creates real and lasting emotional, social, behavioral and spiritual growth. By treating a small number of residents at a time, we are also able to offer highly personalized eating disorder treatment for teens and adolescents. This important combination of personalized and specialized treatment has contributed to the legacy of success we have earned over the last 15 years, and forms the basis of our proprietary treatment model.
The Center for Discovery proprietary treatment model is based on our years of experience and research. Our process is centered on family involvement in treatment, which research has shown is a critical factor in successful treatment. One of the cornerstones of our eating disorder treatment program is the therapeutic family meal. During the therapeutic family meals, residents and their family sit down to eat with their therapist and dietitian. The dietitian and therapist are able to help direct the family with personalized family coaching, giving a good example of how meals should be handled at home, after treatment. Another important part of our teen eating disorder treatment program is the hands-on food preparation training and nutritional education. Food education and hands-on training helps teens and adolescents become more familiar and comfortable with food. Our full, seven days per week, treatment schedule includes a minimum of four hours of individual therapy, family therapy sessions, and an average of four hours per day of group therapy sessions.
Treatment at our San Diego teen eating disorder treatment program is nurturing, structured and closely supervised. Our teen eating disorder treatment program is a home-like setting set within a residential La Jolla neighborhood. The residential La Jolla, San Diego location and home-like setting help teens and adolescents feel comfortable while they can concentrate on getting better without the distractions and environmental factors in their daily lives. If your adolescent or teen is dealing with an eating disorder, know that recovery is possible. We are an established leader in teen eating disorder treatment and we understand how difficult it can be to seek residential treatment.
