Center For Discovery Torrance is an outpatient eating disorder treatment center that provides partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient therapy to patients of all genders and all ages. At Discovery, patients work with our highly-trained, expert staff who’ll give them the confidence and reassurance they need to succeed. Using evidence-based techniques, they’ll guide patients through the entire process and help propel them to discovering a better self. Treatment modalities we offer include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), exposure & response prevention (ERP) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT).

Dietary Program: Handling Eating Disorder Treatment with CARE

Healing, growth and a positive relationship with food is possible with the Center for Discovery Dietary Program. Our approach the CARE-CFD Model, which stands for “consistent attuned relational eating.” This means patients have the steadiness of a dietary plan that is adaptable to what’s happening in their life. The CARE-CFD Model embraces: trauma-focused nutrition therapy; collaboration between patients and the care team; responsiveness to the whole body, including being in tune with the nervous system; and weight inclusivity.

Activities, Insurance and More

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 inclusive binge eating program, Path to Peace, is also offered virtually at this location.

Insurances we accept include but are not limited to Anthem BC, Cigna/ Great West, Holman Group, Networks by Design and UNICARE – Beacon HS. For free insurance verification, click here.

This program has a very experienced staff that is trained in Somatic Experiencing and trauma therapy, and offers an extended partial hospitalization day program for high acuity patients. This program works closely with major local hospitals such as Torrance Memorial and Children’s Hospital of Orange County inpatient units after a client has completed their inpatient stay and is ready to step down from inpatient and enroll in an outpatient program.
