The Center for Discovery Process


Center for Discovery San Diego specializes in treating eating disorders. Eating disorder treatment is not one of our programs, it is the program. We have been helping teens and women successfully recover from eating disorders for voer 15 years. As part of our proprietary treatment process, each of our residents is directly involved in developing their individualized treatment program including planning for life after residential treatment. Our process is focused on the family and involves family members closely as a support system for recovery.

One of the foundations of our proprietary process is the therapeutic family meal. During the therapeutic family meal, the resident, their family, the dietitian and therapist sit down to a meal and therapy session. During this meal, the dietitian and therapist provide individualized family coaching that addresses exactly what should take place at meals after treatment. During these therapeutic meals, an “intervention plan” is developed specifically for each resident and their family to use at home, after treatment.

In addition to the therapeutic family meal, our eating disorder treatment program includes a minimum of three individual therapy sessions and several group therapy sessions. A treatment plan for each resident is developed to provide the combination of therapeutic sessions that meets their needs. On average, over 40 group therapy sessions are available to residents each week including groups addressing self-esteem, body acceptance, relaxation, coping skills, life skills, and relapse prevention.

Eating disorder treatment and recovery requires a mixture of both therapeutic interventions and practical skills. Our kitchen skills group helps residents with everything from nutritional education and meal planning to grocery shopping and food preparation. We embrace an “all foods fit” approach with no foods being “bad” by definition and focusing on moderation and balance. These skills help residents become more comfortable and more familiar with food and the kitchen while reducing anxiety. Eating disorder treatment at Center for Discovery San Diego occurs in our home-like setting, located in a residential neighborhood, which helps the practical skills transfer more readily to life after treatment. Center for Discovery San Diego locations are structured and nurturing environments where the goal is to provide a therapeutic atmosphere where each resident and their family feel welcome and supported throughout the treatment process.
