Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) May 07, 2013

Center for Discovery, a leader in women’s eating disorder treatment, is pleased to announce the successful addition of Equine Assisted Therapy to its specialized eating disorder treatment program. Equine Assisted Therapy is used as part of a comprehensive, proprietary eating disorder treatment program to help women with eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorder.

“Equine assisted therapy is an incredible addition to our program and is a powerful way to inspire change in our residents,” said Dr. Craig Brown, CEO of Center for Discovery. “Equine assisted therapy, as part of our eating disorder treatment program, is an excellent instrument that helps promote healing, growth, and insight.”

The Center for Discovery location, located in a residential neighborhood in Bellevue, Washington specializes in helping adult women with eating disorders as a primary diagnosis. Equine assisted therapy can help residents address issues in the areas of assertiveness, trust, emotional regulation, mindfulness, self-esteem, self-confidence, and body awareness. By going beyond traditional therapy settings and interacting with a 1000+ pound animal, equine assisted therapy promotes growth in ways that other therapies cannot. Equine assisted therapy in the Bellevue eating disorder treatment program for women includes working with horses in a group and individually. The Center for Discovery staff work closely with the equine assisted therapist to ensure that each resident’s individual needs and goals are addressed in the sessions.

Center for Discovery integrates the equine assisted therapy sessions into the specialized and personalized women’s eating disorder treatment program. Along with equine assisted therapy, Center for Discovery utilizes a combination of individual and family-integrated treatment, as well as a nutrition program that uses exposure with response prevention (ERP) and a kitchen skills education and training component that is like no other program.
