>PRWEB.COM Newswire

Downey, CA (PRWEB) December 19, 2012

Center for Discovery, a national leader in residential eating disorder treatment, is marking the twelve year anniversary of its teen and adolescent eating disorder treatment center in Downey, California. The Downey location provides residential eating disorder treatment for teens and adolescents dealing with bulimia, anorexia, binge eating disorder and other types of complex disordered eating. Treatment at the Downey location includes a high level of practical skills training and a treatment setting where adolescents and teens can safely tell their individual stories.

The Downey, California location is staffed by highly trained eating disorder treatment professionals, including full time therapists. The eating disorder program provides hands-on practical kitchen skills, a component that is unique to Center for Discovery programs, and a nutrition program that utilizes exposure response prevention (ERP). By using real world experiences, our residents are able to practice the skills they learn and those skills are more easily transferrable to life after treatment. Eating disorder treatment at the Downey location is family integrated and the proprietary process is backed by extensive research.

“We are proud to celebrate our twelfth anniversary of helping teens and adolescents with their struggle against eating disorders in our Downey center,” said Dr. Craig Brown, CEO of Center for Discovery. “We are deeply committed to helping our residents successfully recover from eating disorders and are dedicated to helping adolescents and teens throughout California.”

The teen and adolescent eating disorder treatment program is a home-like setting located within a residential neighborhood in Downey, California. The Downey location provides specialized residential treatment for teens and adolescents with eating disorders as a primary diagnosis, and creates personalized treatment plans for each resident. “We personalize treatment for each resident, keeping family members closely involved in the treatment process. Our process has been developed so each of our residents receives the most effective eating disorder treatment for them,” said Buck Runyan, COO of the Center for Discovery Eating Disorder division. While the Downey location is celebrating twelve years of helping teens and adolescents with eating disorders, Center for Discovery as a whole has been helping adolescents and teens with eating disorders for over 15 years using its proprietary eating disorder treatment program that is both effective and backed by extensive research.
