Center for Discovery Menlo Park is a high level of care eating disorder treatment facility for adolescent male and female clients, age 10-18 who are in need of inpatient care. The Menlo Park location opened in 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 minutes from Palo Alto. Center for Discovery Menlo Park is down the street from prestigious Stanford University Medical Center and our staff collaborates closely with their affiliate medical team.
Our quaint, cottage style home is located in a quiet, residential neighborhood. 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. 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, clients 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.

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.
