Our Specialty: Helping Children and Teens with Eating Disorders
Center for Discovery Edmonds is an adolescent residential eating disorder treatment program. Our program is special as it is dedicated solely to the treatment of adolescent females and males aged 11 to 18. At Center for Discovery, we do more than specialize in eating disorders, it is our main treatment focus. Our residential treatment program is intensive and personalized to each resident. Every member of the Center for Discovery team is deeply committed to the healing and well-being of our residents and their families. We are exceptionally effective at understanding the underlying emotional issues, as well as the destructive behavior associated with anorexia, bulimia, binge eating and other disordered eating.
It is our belief that adolescents need specialized treatment for eating disorders. Center for Discovery is specifically designed to give each resident the individualized treatment necessary to affect behavioral, social, emotional, and spiritual growth. Center for Discovery has been dedicated to helping adolescents with eating disorders achieve long-term recovery for over 15 years. During that time, we have developed our proprietary process that is family oriented and has a legacy of proven success. Our treatment program closely involves the family members of each resident as a support system for recovery, including weekly family therapy and therapeutic family meals. A therapeutic family meal includes the resident, their family, dietitian, and therapist and together they eat a meal while the treatment team conducts a therapy session. This allows the resident and their family to directly address any family dynamics as it occurs during what is typically a chaotic setting.
