If I could rate it any lower I would. They made me sign a non-disclosure agreement which means there would have been ramifications if I criticized their program while attending it. I am speaking for the Lakewood, Los Alamitos, and Beverly Hills location. The Beverly Hills location was slightly more organized and strict then the rest, I'll give them that. However, the pervasive ideology did not really help me at all. The therapists were even slightly threatening at times. My family did not have the financial resources to help me, so we went to DCFS for aid. The social worker from DCFS was the main threatening force and the therapists just played along with it. They attempted to squeeze as much money out of DCFS as possible by extending my stays in residential and PHP. I told them what they were doing would not be fruitful. Holding someone there with the looming threat of being separated from their family due to Anorexia is pitiful as a motivating force. I am glad I signed myself out of...

Center for Discovery is a horrible place. First of all, this eating disorder clinic is located within the same building as a porn company, Hustler or LFP. Secondly, the therapists at Center for Discovery make all prospective patients sign a non-disclosure agreement before they can visit the clinic. IF you complain publicly, there may be legal or other forms of retaliation. Thirdly, the therapists are unethical and give vague answers to problems because they want you to repeat visits. The people who answer the phone are basically a call center which has barely any connection to the actual clinic itself. The parking is awful. Center for Discovery is unsafe for your sanity!

Holding someone there with the looming threat of being separated from their family due to Anorexia is pitiful as a motivating force. I am glad I signed myself out of there upon turning . I am in a much better place now doing this on my own. It's been difficult, but I wouldn't have it any other way. The groups are boring, useless, and overly abundant, especially in the residential setting (i.e. Lakewood). As for the Los Alamitos location, I wasn't able to request a transfer to the Beverly Hills location during my time because my twin brother was going to be transferred there. That would have saved us hundreds in Uber fares! My Mom used up our savings to transport me to this excuse for a PHP facility. Sure, some of the people are nice, but their groups are ineffective, pre-planned, dare I say, "cookie-cutter" activities with very little substance. Now, on to the Lakewood location. The staff was really kind, but they blatantly try to deceive you. I can only speak for myself, but when I asked them why they were giving me Ensures, there reasoning was to get my heart-rate beyond bpm when I am sleeping. Now, prior to my arrival there I was engaging in physical activity and trying to eat well; however, when coupled with my family's genetic trend of low heart-rates and low blood pressure, it would be logical to assume that I would have a low heart-rate. When I asked how exactly feeding me nutritionally devoid, pharmaceutical supplements (that's really what the company Abbot deals with, they are a "medical" center (they don't refer to themselves as such though) after all) would help me, they told me I would gain weight, that the extra calories would only help my heart. I guess the doctor forgot her basic Thermodynamics because she was plainly wrong. They made me gain an exorbitant amount of weight. I left there at around lbs (I am only around 5'4). I had always been extremely thin and underweight, even prior to the development of this illness, and I felt extremely uncomfortable in that weight. It seemed they only got me there as a contingency because they feared I would lose it upon release. Maybe they did it because of a warped perception of how males should weigh, I don''t know. NOW I WILL ADDRESS SOMETHING OF EXTREME CONCERN, the medications. The psychiatrist's answer to everything is to increase the dose. Why provide anorexics with medication designed for schizophrenics? Why give them medication with extreme side effects, such as an increase risk for strokes, cancer, etc.? As for there reasoning, it had to do with Serotonin Reuptake this and that and "it will help with rumination and your thoughts", which they don't seem to comprehend completely either. Bottom line, the only program that I would recommend is not this "franchise". I cannot specify which location is actually beneficial and utilizes techniques that are peer-reviewed (unlike this company using their own research), but I hope you find it because I ruined my chances in the place that I am referring to (NOT CFD) due to not complying. Overall, I can't tell you to stay away. Who knows, it might work for you, if you or your kid can tolerate being a room with other kids with similar or the same condition ("wow what a great idea, huh?")."
