Our Specialty: Helping Children and Teens with Eating Disorders
Center for Discovery Chicago is an eating disorder residential treatment program for teens and adolescents struggling with anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder. Our eating disorder treatment program is dedicated to the treatment of adolescent females, ages 11 to 21, and treatment is intensive and personalized for each of our residents. At Center for Discovery, we are extremely effective at understanding the underlying emotional issues and destructive behaviors relating to eating disorders. Every member of the Center for Discovery Chicago team is deeply committed to the health and healing of our residents and their families.
At Center for Discovery Chicago, we believe that adolescents and teens with eating disorders need and deserve specialized and personalized treatment. We provide personalized treatment that leads to emotional, behavioral, social and spiritual growth for our residents and their families. Our team of eating disorder specialists helps guide residents and their families to long term recovery and a healthy life. Eating disorder treatment at Center for Discovery takes place in our home-like setting within a residential neighborhood. Treatment within a residential neighborhood helps our residents feel as comfortable as possible while providing greater internalization and translation of the treatment experience to life after treatment. Center for Discovery Chicago does not look, feel or smell like a hospital. We strive to provide an environment where residents can feel like people, not patients.
Center for Discovery has been dedicated to providing quality eating disorder treatment for over 15 years. During that time, we have developed a proprietary treatment model that has contributed to our legacy of successfully helping teens and adolescents with eating disorders. Our proprietary program allows for a one-of-a-kind treatment experience to be provided to each resident to support their growth and recovery. Treatment is individualized for each resident and each resident is involved in developing their treatment program. At Center for Discovery, we understand that eating disorders are not just about the diagnosis and that while symptoms may be similar, the circumstances and underlying contributors are unique to each resident. To address these unique circumstances and contributing factors, an individualized treatment plan is developed. At Center for Discovery, it is our firm belief that family involvement in the treatment process is critical to successful treatment. Research has shown that family involvement is instrumental in creating successful treatment outcomes. At Center for Discovery, it is never about blame — we focus on where your adolescent and your family go from here, and how you get there. Family is a central source of support for our residents and family members are closely involved in the treatment process.
