Teen & Child Eating Disorder Treatment
At Center For Discovery Downey, we provide specialized residential treatment for teens and adolescents, female and male ages 10 to 19, with eating disorders as a primary diagnosis. Eating disorder treatment is more than our specialty at Center For Discovery Downey, it is what we do. We are solely dedicated to helping adolescents and teens with eating disorders achieve successful long term recovery. One of our core beliefs is that eating disorders have their origin in a multitude of factors and are naturally compulsive. Our mission is to provide intensive, effective treatment for our residents.
Each teen and adolescent begins residential treatment with their own combination of physical, emotional, psychological and relationship problems, but above all recovery is possible. To address the specific combination of issues for each of our residents, we develop an individualized treatment plan for each resident using the therapeutic interventions that are most effective for them personally. In order to ensure that treatment is personalized, we maintain a low resident to staff ratio that contributes to our intimate setting that fosters growth, connection and trust.
Center For Discovery locations maintain the highest state licensure available and are accredited by the Joint Commission. Joint Commission accreditation and certification is a nationally recognized symbol of quality and reflects our commitment to the highest performance and treatment standards. Our eating disorder treatment programs are located within residential neighborhoods ensuring a home-like setting. Treatment is personalized to each of our residents and our program is designed to comfort residents and never have them feel like a patient.
