Throughout our history, we have continued to help our clients achieve long-term recovery and go on to live happy, productive lives. At Center for Discovery Fairfield, our facility is dedicated solely to helping adult women with eating disorders as a primary diagnosis.
Eating disorders can't hide here, and eating disorder treatment is not just our specialty, it is what we do. Our team is especially effective at helping to address denial or any lack of understanding about the seriousness of eating disorders and our treatment team is deeply committed to and passionate about the well-being of our residents. At Center for Discovery Fairfield, we are focused on helping women address the eating disorder behavior as well as the underlying emotional factors that contribute to the eating disorder cycle.
Eating Disorders begin as compulsive disorders and can develop into coping mechanisms for women. Eating disorders may initially seem to help manage stress and feelings that are overwhelming. Women dealing with disordered eating use food to help deal with fears and emotions. By manipulating food, they are able to self-soothe and the eating disorder behavior can provide a distraction from other problems in their lives. Many different factors can contribute to the development of an eating disorder. Having an eating disorder is not a sign of weakness or a character flaw. While many women may recognize the unusual nature of their compulsive and obsessive behavior, they are often too fearful to talk about them with anyone.
Residential treatment at Center for Discovery Fairfield helps women identify and address their eating disorder behavior as well as the underlying emotional contributors. Our eating disorder treatment center is a homelike setting within a residential neighborhood. The residential setting provides an easier transition between treatment and everyday life, while allowing for the skills learned in treatment to translate more effectively to life after treatment.
