Dallas, TX (PRWEB) October 27, 2015
Center For Discovery, a national leader in eating disorder treatment, is pleased to announce a special Open House in Dallas on Wednesday, October 28, 2015, from 4:00 – 8:00 pm. Treatment professionals, clinicians, and dieticians are invited to tour the new Center For Discovery Dallas facility, Texas’ first licensed eating disorder residential treatment center (RTC) for adolescents and teens, ages 10-18.
The National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) estimates that approximately half a million teens struggle with eating disorders or disordered eating. In one study, eating disorders among adolescents was associated with functional impairment and suicidality. Sadly, while the majority of adolescents report some contact with healthcare service providers, only a minority have specifically talked with a professional about their eating disorder, potentially due to denial, shame or stigma.
“We need to erase the stigma associated with eating disorders, and help young people discover a healthier future,” said President and COO, Mark Hobbins, “We are delighted to welcome professionals into the facility to tour, and to work together to help the many teens who need and deserve quality eating disorder treatment.”
Center For Discovery Dallas focuses on a maximum of eight clients at a time to provide the most effective, individualized residential treatment for anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder and other types of disordered eating. In addition, intensive family involvement is the cornerstone of Center For Discovery eating disorder treatment programs and fosters long-term recovery. This intensive family involvement coupled with comprehensive clinical services has allowed Discovery to achieve national recognition for its eating disorder treatment outcomes. The program’s unique, hands-on culinary experiences promote active participation in the kitchen, replicating real life and practical experiences for adolescents that build confidence and self-reliance.
