A small residential program for eating disorders, the Center for Discovery gives psychiatric, medical, and dietary support to adult women and treats only several clients at a time. Patients live at the center for the duration of the treatment, in a home in Fremont, California, about an hour outside of San Francisco. The approach here involves a customized treatment plan for each client, including specialized cognitive behavioral and dialectical therapies, empowerment workshops, and exposure-based programs that mimic real-life scenarios (i.e., menu planning, meal preparation, and clothes shopping). There are more than fifty additional Center for Discovery locations throughout California and the US, all of which vary in size, and some also treat adolescents, teens, and men.
