Center For Discovery Danville is a higher level of care eating disorder facility in Northern California that treats adolescent males and females 10-18 years of age for eating disorders that require more intensive care than outpatient treatment. Center For Discovery, Danville has been opened since December 2014 and offers residential treatment for individuals who require around the clock care and partial hospitalization care for individuals who need intensive care during the day but are well enough to return home in the evenings. Danville is nestled in the heart of the East Bay Area and the treated center is nestled far off the highway about 30 minutes from San Francisco, which provides a sense of peace and solitude. The facility has a main house, therapist cottage and a big garden full of flowers and vegetation allowing clients to have ample space to engage socially and clinically while being surrounded in a green eco friendly environment. Due to the large outdoor garden, this facility is able to offer horticultural therapy (therapeutic gardening exercises to learn about various interpersonal dynamics and psychological needs).
Typically a young individual will enter a residential setting when their eating disorder causes them to be medically unstable, or the symptoms are so severe that they need 24-hour care. Once symptoms are stabilized, then the individual can move to partial-hospitalization. The treatment setting should ideally be in line with the goals of treatment. Most goals are to stabilize the individual medically, to help the person stop eating disorder behaviors, and to address and underlying mental health issues or substance abuse disorders that could be maintaining the eating disorder.
