Center For Discovery Bridgewater is an outpatient eating disorder facility that has been operating since April 2017 and treats men and women of all ages. The Bridgewater New Jersey location offers intensive outpatient therapy (IOP) and partial hospitalization (PHP) to adolescents and adults who do not meet criteria for inpatient care for their eating disorder but still require professional treatment. Bridgeport, New Jersey outpatient serves central New Jersey and is located 30 minutes from the Pennsylvania border and 30 minutes from shore towns, providing easy access for clients from the surrounding areas. The outpatient center has ample parking and is easily accessible from 278 or 78 highways.
The main focus of outpatient treatment is to help individuals find healthy ways to cope with their underlying triggers that sparked their eating disorders. Whether the individual has a history of trauma, abuse, low self-esteem or interpersonal conflict; treatment works on resolving these underlying triggers, which can help, treat the present eating disorder. Although each eating disorder has its own set of unique diagnostic criteria, usually the underlying triggers are very similar in nature. Outpatient treatment also works to get the family involved in the individual’s care and to establish a strong support network. In order to enroll in outpatient treatment programs such as partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient care, the client must not be actively suicidal, must have a minimal support structure, must be medically stable, must be at least 80% of their goal weight, and must exhibit at least partial motivation and cooperation in treatment. Bridgewater outpatient provides clients with mindful movement, expressive arts and social media therapy groups while also providing exposure response prevention (ERP) for clients who have a history of trauma. Bridgeport outpatient provides theme days as a way to bring fun into the therapy program, which allows clients to practice self-expression in a positive environment. Upon successful completion of the outpatient program, each client is presented with a celebratory ceremony.
