Center for Discovery Emeryville is an outpatient eating disorder treatment center offering partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient therapy to patients of all genders and all ages. This San Francisco Bay area location opened in 2016 and the staff have many years of experience working with patients and their families who are struggling with an eating disorder. The Emeryville outpatient eating disorder provides art therapy and many different forms of expressive therapy. Treatment modalities we offer include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), exposure & response prevention (ERP) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT).

In addition to receiving evidence-based therapies, patients all have the opportunity to put “joyful” back into movement through yoga and other activities. Center for Discovery’s inclusive binge eating care program, Path to Peace, is also offered virtually at this location.
