Treatment Model: Lead by Dr. Chassity Angeny-Showalter, PsyD, Aspire Wellness Center offers Partial Hospitalization (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient (IOP) levels of care for the treatment of Eating Disorders. Internationally accredited by CARF, our core mission is to ensure that the highest level of clinical excellence and patient satisfaction is being provided at every stage of treatment. Our curriculum is offered 5 days per week, and Psychological Evaluation appointments are available Monday through Friday from 8:30am-4:00pm. We offer free consultations either in person or by phone, and we can provide unbiased referrals to the most highly regarded Inpatient treatment programs if the initial assessment indicates that a higher level of care may be needed.

Unlike other programs that have 20+ clients, Aspire Wellness Center limits our group therapy size to just 10 clients, and our average group size is 6 - 7 clients. This allows us to customize each treatment plan to suit each person's unique circumstances and challenges. Our small census also allows us to offer more individual therapy sessions, and more individual meal planning time with our Registered Dietitians. For these reason, our participants report a very high level of satisfaction with our services, and report excellent recovery outcomes over long periods of time. In addition to our CORE evidence-based groups, we also offer experiential therapies such as: Dance Movement, Yoga, daily Mindfulness walks to restore a positive relationship with the body, Dialectical Behavior and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Family relationship counseling.

Aspire Wellness Center is proud to be the only treatment center in the country that guarantees your success following completion of our program. We believe that you deserve assurances that all of the treatment we have provided will actually result in a significant reduction in your symptoms and negative behaviors over a long period of time. We also believe that the trust you put in our treatment team, and all of your hard work spent on recovery should rewarded. Therefore, we promise that if you graduate one of our outpatient eating disorder programs (PHP or IOP) and experience an exacerbation of symptoms during the first six months following completion, Aspire Wellness Center will cover the cost of an additional 30 days treatment - with NO out of pocket treatment costs to you. It's that simple.

Office:  866-846-8597 



Treatment Model: All of Center For Discovery’s locations are Joint Commission accredited and state licensed—the gold standard in healthcare today. Center For Discovery programs are staffed with eating disorder specialists including Certified Eating Disorder Specialists (CEDS) and Certified Eating Disorder Registered Dietitians (CEDRD). We maintain small, intimate milieus (treating a maximum of eight clients at a time), with separate facilities for adolescents and adults, because we believe that individualized attention is critical when it comes to providing effective and efficient treatment. Further, because treatment occurs in a home, and not a hospital, it provides greater transferability and internalization of the experience to life after discharge. Upon admission, every client is assessed by a multidisciplinary treatment team and provided with a comprehensive treatment plan. Our hands-on dietary program is second to none and includes individualized meal planning and preparation, exposures, restaurant and grocery store outings, as well as kitchen skills and nutrition groups. In addition, each client receives a minimum of six individual sessions per week: one each with the psychiatrist, physician, and registered dietitian, and three with their primary therapist.

Treatment involves multiple therapeutic modalities including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), exposure and response prevention (ERP), body movement dance, yoga and equine-assisted psychotherapy (EAP). At Center For Discovery, family involvement is vital to our program. Families have numerous opportunities to participate in their loved ones treatment including weekly family therapy, visitation and passes, and individual therapeutic family meals. At Center For Discovery, we are driven by results and our goal is to provide the best, most effective eating disorder treatment in the field. Center For Discovery has an 18 year legacy and employs several unique interventions and technology that facilitates more effective ongoing communication with family members and outpatient providers during and after treatment. We routinely watch clients make great strides during treatment and to ensure that those gains are maintained after discharge we place particular emphasis on facilitating seamless transitions between levels of care. To this end, we are partnered with the Feinstein Institute for Biomedical Research to measure outcomes by examining the process of treatment, how clients fare post-discharge, and readmission rates. The data suggest that not only are improvements maintained, but that Center For Discovery clients actually continue to improve following their discharge. Our focus on thorough discharge planning comes from a well-documented understanding that it is the transition between levels of care that is typically the most challenging for clients. For this same reason, we work to continually expand our continuum of care and to provide residential (RTC,), partial hospitalization (PHP) and intensive outpatient programs (IOP) to the community.

Our Discovery Connect program keeps families and outpatient professionals involved every step of the way. At Center For Discovery the emphasis on long-term recovery is not only about the diagnosed issues, it is about the contributing factors that underlie those conditions. Center For Discovery developed a proprietary program over the course of two decades which means that both evidenced-based and individualized treatment is provided to every client. In addition, every client is assessed on an ongoing basis using the Recovery Report Card which identifies client’s current functioning over 10 criteria. These criteria are based on the American Psychiatric Association guidelines and have been extremely well received by eating disorder professionals and insurance companies. Center For Discovery treats co-occurring substance use, self-injury, and underlying trauma or mood disorders as well as offers separate residential substance abuse and mental health programs. Center For Discovery offers free weekly support groups throughout the country, and a Free recovery app See a virtual tour of any of Center For Discovery’s locations here. Center For Discovery is also in network with all major insurance companies and provides complimentary insurance benefit verification and free, confidential assessments.  On satisfaction surveys from more than 2000 clients and families over 95% said that they would recommend Center For Discovery.
