Center for Discovery La Jolla is a high level of care eating disorder treatment center that provides residential treatment and partial hospitalization to young female and non-binary (regardless of sex assigned at birth) patients ages 16-26 who have been diagnosed with an eating disorder. This beautiful location is conveniently located just off the 5 freeway in seaside La Jolla, north of downtown San Diego and is in close proximity to the surrounding coastal towns of Mission Bay and Point Loma. La Jolla Village is just minutes away with ample art studios, scenic view of the bay, and opportunities for patient outings at several dining locations. 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. Discovery’s specialized binge eating disorder (BED) program, Path to Peace, is also offered at this location.
Insurances we accept include but are not limited to Cigna/ Great West, Fortified Provider Network (FPN), Holman Group, Magellan of CA HAI and UNICARE. Please remember that the insurances we accept change frequently. Our insurance team will verify your coverage.
