Introducing Online Telehealth Services for Eating Disorder Treatment
We know that eating disorders don’t take a break—even during these times when the COVID-19 outbreak is forcing the world to socially distance. In fact, theses stressful times can further trigger maladaptive thoughts and behaviors around eating.
It’s more important than ever that Center for Discovery continues to provide the necessary treatment for individuals struggling with anorexia, binge eating disorder, bulimia, or other form of eating disorder. While admitting into one of our residential homes for 24/7 structure and supervision may be needed for some, we recognize that many individuals may not need that higher level of care—and are concerned about social distancing and other safety concerns related to in-person outpatient programs.
Our Online Telehealth Programs offers healing from home
To ensure the safety of our patients and our staff, we are transitioning our in-person outpatient programming to telehealth programming for intensive outpatient and partial hospitalization levels of care.
Telehealth Behavioral Healthcare Services from Center for Discovery will be available the week of March 23 in all the states where we offer outpatient care and follows the same programming as our in-person outpatient programs.

Our Online Telehealth Program offers the same quality care
Center for Discovery is renowned for its personalized approach to treatment and our hands-on dietary program. You may wonder if it’s possible to get the same care at a distance. It is.
This flexible option ensures continuity of care for patients from the comfort and convenience of their home. Our online telehealth program follows the same programming as our in-person outpatient programs, including one-on-one sessions with your therapist and dietician, group sessions, and family programming. Since patients will be at home, they will prepare their own meals and will have opportunities to participate in supported meals or snacks via teleconference.
Here’s what you can expect:
- Therapeutic visits via the Zoom platform or other telecommunication platform that meets HIPPA compliance requirements
- 2-way, live interactive telephone and/or digital video communication
- Medically necessary treatment with licensed members of your treatment team while reducing the risk of exposure to COVID-19 or other contagious illness
