Center for Discovery Pleasanton is an outpatient eating disorder treatment center offering partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient therapy to male and female clients of all ages. This San Francisco Bay area location opened in 2016 and the staff have many years of experience working with clients and their families who are struggling with an eating disorder. The treatment team also has extensive experience working with domestic violence, sexual assault, and addiction counseling, which can be closely tied to eating disorders. The Pleasanton 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, 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.
Insurances we accept include but are not limited to Aetna/Shaller Anderson/GHC/First Health/Auto/WorkersComp, Avante, Cigna/ Great West, Halcyon, and MCCP (Medical Cost Containment Professionals, LLC). For free insurance verification, click here.
