Treatment Model: Finding out who you are and how you operate in the world leads to better relationships and decisions about your future. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is the vehicle to self-discovery and self-discovery leads to recovery. An eating disorder keeps you from yourself. In a safe and nurturing environment, you can have the freedom to explore who you are and to repair what is keeping you stuck. Collaboration with my patients is key to successful treatment which is why I recognize the necessity to respect your space and needs during this process. I use a combination of cognitive behavioral as well as psychodynamic approaches to address the eating disorder, and can provide referrals for dietitians and psychiatrists as needed. Once you have a better sense of self, you will be able to express and assert yourself in a more genuine way as well as have better judgment in terms of relationships and choices that life presents.

Treatment Model: Finding out who you are and how you operate in the world leads to better relationships and decisions about your future. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is the vehicle to self-discovery and self-discovery leads to recovery. An eating disorder keeps you from yourself. In a safe and nurturing environment, you can have the freedom to explore who you are and to repair what is keeping you stuck. Collaboration with my patients is key to successful treatment which is why I recognize the necessity to respect your space and needs during this process. I use a combination of cognitive behavioral as well as psychodynamic approaches to address the eating disorder, and can provide referrals for dietitians and psychiatrists as needed. Once you have a better sense of self, you will be able to express and assert yourself in a more genuine way as well as have better judgment in terms of relationships and choices that life presents.

Center For Discovery Glenview

Residential, Partial Hospitalization, Intensive Outpatient

Address: 3737 Lawson Road, Glenview, IL

Additional Communities Served: Nationwide

Office:  866-846-8597 

Website: www.centerfordiscoverychicago.com 

Email: info@centerfordiscovery.com

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 http://www.discoveryinrecovery.com/. 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.
