Path to Peace for BED

Path to Peace Treatment Program for BED

Finding Relief with the Nation’s Premier Specialized Program

Unlike other treatment programs, Discovery provides specialized care for Binge Eating Disorder (BED). We call it Path to Peace because our team’s goal is to help you discover a peaceful relationship with food and body. Our overall commitment is to shift the way society views bodies and weight.

How? We are never weight-focused. To us, that simply isn’t the issue that needs to be addressed.

Rather, we work to empower our clients to have a healthy relationship with food by digging into the underlying causes of the disorder with a trauma-informed lens. Then we help you develop tools for tuning into your body and improving your overall well-being.

Take a free Eating Disorder Evaluation

This evaluation can help determine if you or a loved one may benefit from consulting with an eating disorder professional.


We utilize a Health-at-Every-Size model to support clients in building a Path to Peace with Food and Body. By learning to accept yourself, you are freed from the pain and compulsion associated with BED. And that can provide enormous relief.

While addressing these issues, we teach you to find your voice so you can advocate for yourself to receive the fair and respectful healthcare you deserve. And stand up against the size-ism and weight stigmas that are inherent in our society. 

Because Discovery promotes size acceptance, we support you in being okay with your body and creating a world that’s a safe place for every body. Not everyone who binge eats lives in a larger body, and not everyone who lives in a larger body has a Binge Eating Disorder. For us, it always comes back to nurturing healthy behaviors.

Discovering Peace?  It’s Intuitive.

Our Path to Peace Program is built on the premise of intuitive eating. In other words, you no longer have to be ruled by the behaviors and feelings that come with binge eating. Instead, you can move forward with skills that develop compassion, awareness, and freedom.

By engaging in intuitive eating, you learn to trust the cues your body gives you. That may be paying attention to signs of hunger or feelings of fullness. It takes practice, but we help you get in touch with what your body needs to nourish itself.

Learning these skills leads to a much more peaceful relationship with food.

  • Exposure Response Prevention (ERP)
  • Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)

And, like all of our treatment options, BED recovery includes the participation of the family and extended client support systems.

Staying involved—whether that’s with family or through our online group or both—promotes connection and reduces shame. We host two free virtual BED-specific support groups every week to encourage maintenance of that recovery network.

Measures of Success.

As you know by now, Discovery does not focus on the scale. And that’s not how we measure your success. Instead, we concentrate on what we consider more important signs of healing.

  • Cessation of binge behavior
  • Intuitive eating that promotes balance, variety, and moderation
  • Body acceptance
  • Decreased depression and anxiety
  • Enhanced mood and feelings of connection
  • Resolution of underlying trauma
  • The ability to advocate for oneself

There is help at Discovery.  There is a Path to Peace.  We’ll help you find it.

You deserve relief from all that. After all, you’re not a number on a scale. You can feel safe, connected, and at peace again.

Please call us at 866.482.3876. Together, we can begin your Path to Peace.

  • I was sent to [Center for Discovery], an all women's eating disorder treatment facility, and I was terrified to go. I was told I would be there for a month and would return home after that. I ended staying there for almost 3 months, and I can honestly say I am beyond thankful for my time there. I learned so much and they helped me find myself and get over my traumas and learn to cope with issues that I was having. All the staff was super helpful and had my best interest at heart. I may have not liked all of them, but I knew they wanted what was best for me. Even after my insurance run out, the therapist I was working with arranged for me to go to another center to continue my treatment because I was not ready to come home. I highly recommend getting help with Center for Discovery. They truly care!

  • I was at [Center for Discovery] for 6 weeks. I'm from Ohio and being so far away from home was hard. The staff made me feel super comfortable and cared for, making my stay much more manageable. The program was very individualized. They worked hard to make sure my specific needs were met and that my specific behaviors were addressed. This is a top notch facility with incredibly caring staff. Not only were the house staff wonderful, but everyone from admissions to the medical director worked hard to make sure I knew what was going on. This is a wonderful company who are true to what they say. They gave me my life back. I'm someone who has been in and out of treatment for my eating disorder and this program was by far the best. I feel so optimistic about my future. The progress I made there was life changing and I will be forever grateful. I recommend this program to anyone who is serious, willing, and ready to get better.

  • I was surprised by my parents with the option of going to get help for my eating disorder and overall unhealthy lifestyle. I so badly wanted to get help, but was too ashamed. After talking to my mom I agreed to at least talk to someone from Center for Discoveryabout what program I would be in and what it would be like. The gal was super helpful, kind, and did not make me feel like I was the only person who suffered from what I did. She was very patient with me and overall helped out our family with the process of insurance and costs and what not. As for the actual facility I stayed at, it was a great experience.

  • We had our son in an acute care hospital and the social worker recommended the Center for Discovery. Before our son was discharged, my wife and I met with the staff and toured the facility. We were impressed by the staff and how the program was structured. Our son was there 6 weeks. It was a game changer and now we feel our son left with a good base of skills that he has continued to use. We now feel our son can leave a normal type life and not have to worry that he may need to live in a group home setting as an adult. We can't say enough for the help and support we received from the entire staff at the Center for Discovery. When we were considering the facility we did some reviews on line. Some weren't overly positive, but most were and we feel that it was a very positive experience for our son and our family. Even our son now admits that he learned some great skills and that his time at Center for Discovery turned his life around.
