Center For Discovery La Habra is an eating disorder treatment center located in the northwest corner of Orange County California that offers a high level of care to young males and females 10-18 years of age and has been opened since July 2015.
This high level of care eating disorder treatment facility practices mindful movement, art therapy and experiential therapy as well as exposure response therapy, dialectal behavioral therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. Exposure response therapy (ERP) is a therapeutic technique that uses expressive tools and activities, such as role-playing or acting, props, arts and crafts, music, guided imagery, or various forms of recreation to re-enact and re-experience emotional situations from past and recent relationships that usually relate to traumatic experiences. Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based therapy that has been proven useful in treating mood disorders and for change in behavioral patterns such as self-harm, and substance abuse. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) focuses on challenging and changing unhelpful cognitive distortions and behaviors, improving emotional regulation, and the development of personal coping strategies that target solving current problems. Center For Discovery La Habra is located in the equestrian area of La Habra Heights, east of downtown Los Angeles, with close proximity to the 60 and 91 freeways and within minutes from Disneyland.
Residential treatment for children and adolescents
Residential treatment offers around the clock supervision, dietary and nutritional counseling, a multitude of different types of therapies and strict meal supervision with support from a large treatment team composed of eating disorder specialists. Clients are under strict supervision and are weighed blindly to ensure they are undergoing safe weight restoration while receiving supportive treatment that focuses on their underlying emotional and mental triggers driving their eating disorder behaviors. Therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy, EMDR, dialectal behavioral therapy, interpersonal therapy, trauma informed care and family therapy are practiced on a daily routine in order to teach healthy coping mechanisms to overcome the underlying fear, trauma and low-self esteem associated with each eating disorder. Family therapy and support plays an integral role in residential treatment. The chances that your loved one will recover from an eating disorder will be increased if the family is involved in supporting and treating the eating disordered individual develop and maintain coping strategies. Children and adolescents find it encouraging when family members are a part of their recovery efforts.
