Center For Discovery Del Mar is an eating disorder outpatient treatment center that treats men and women of all ages. This eating disorder treatment center opened in January 2016 and offers trauma informed yoga, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), and art therapy. The Del Mar OP treatment center is located in North County San Diego, near Del Mar and La Jolla and is centrally located around major freeways, beaches, community colleges, universities and tourist landmarks. This treatment program offers a number of highly trained staff including a trained EMDR therapist, a registered nurse, and many dietetic interns from San Diego State and other Universities all over the country and as a result, this facility is equipped to treat high acuity clients. Many staff members at this facility are grounded in body image and personal identity work.
The Del Mar OP treatment team, combined, has over 10 years of experience working in the eating disorder and mental health realm, with some members of the treatment team trained by pioneers in the eating disorder community. Members of the treatment team have unique experience in all levels of care, aiding the support for clients in getting them into the appropriate level of care. Partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient treatment centers are designed for individuals who are medically stable and who have received treatment in a residential treatment center or who do not qualify for a higher level of care because their eating disorder can be managed on an outpatient basis. Partial hospitalization is an all day treatment program where clients undergo intensive therapy and return home to their families in the evenings. Intensive outpatient therapy is a step down from partial hospitalization since therapy takes place for 3-4 days a week for a few hours in the evening.
