20 Years of Experience

Center For Discovery has been providing residential treatment for women and teens for over 20 years. At Center For Discovery, we provide residential treatment for women with eating disorders, teens with eating disorders, teens with mental health disorders, and teens with substance abuse issues. Each of our locations is dedicated solely to one of our specialized treatment programs. By keeping each location specialized to one of our treatment programs, we are able to provide the most effective and efficient treatment. All of our locations provide treatment for only a small number of residents at one time to maintain an intimate setting and a high staff to resident ratio. Treatment within a residential neighborhood allows our residents to feel more comfortable in a familiar surrounding and provides greater transferability and internalization of the treatment experience to life after treatment. We place a high priority on providing an environment where our clients feel like and are treated like people, never patients.

Treating more than just your diagnosis

Center For Discovery has been dedicated to providing successful residential treatment for years, and over that time we have developed a proprietary treatment model that has helped us create a legacy of success. Our proprietary program allows for one-of-a-kind treatment to be provided to every client to support their healing, growth, and recovery. At Center For Discovery, we know that treatment is not only about the diagnosed issues, it is about the contributing factors that underlie those conditions. We understand that while the symptoms may be similar, the underlying factors are unique to each of our clients. All clients are personally involved in creating their treatment program and treatment is highly individualized to address the specific underlying issues of each client.

Healing with the whole family

Our team of renowned experts helps guide clients and families to recovery, well-being and a healthy life. It is our firm belief at Center For Discovery that families are critical to the solution. Research has shown that family involvement is instrumental in providing for successful treatment outcomes. Family is a primary source of support for our residents and is closely involved in the treatment process. We want you to know that at Center For Discovery it is never about blame. We focus on where you and your family go from here and how you get there.
