Center For Discovery, Menlo Park is a high level of care eating disorder treatment facility that treats adolescent male and female clients 10-18 years of age who are in need of inpatient care. The Menlo Park location opened in May 2006 and is located in the heart of the San Francisco Bay area just off the 280 freeway. Centered between San Francisco to the north and San Jose to the south, Menlo Park is just down the street from prestigious Stanford University Medical Center and minutes from downtown Palo Alto. Our quaint, cottage style home is located in a quiet, residential neighborhood providing a safe space for clients to receive care. Our proximity to Stanford Children’s Hospital makes us the premiere location for eating disorder treatment in the Bay Area. Because of the close proximity to Stanford, Center For Discovery, Menlo Park has a working collaborative relationship with Stanford Children’s Hospital and works closely with their affiliate medical team.
This location treats six adolescent clients at a time, allowing for an individualized treatment approach while offering therapeutic gardening practices to bring about emotional and psychological healing. Family therapy is a weekly part of treatment plan as well as mindful movement therapy, trauma therapy and drama therapy. Center For Discovery Menlo Park draws a wide range of clients and families with diverse backgrounds and as a result, the treatment team aims to actively work on sensitivity and competence around cross-cultural challenges of each and every client. This treatment facility has a strong alumni program, which offers a bi-monthly alumni group for past clients to come together and share and express their current challenges, successes and experiences with a therapist.
