LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., April 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Discovery Behavioral Health, Inc., with 77 treatment centers in 11 states, is pleased to announce the expansion of its mental health services. Known since 1997 for its expertise in the treatment of teens under the Center for Discovery brand, the newly named Discovery Mood and Anxiety Program will now offer services for young adults. Discovery Behavioral Health offers a full continuum of care in eating disorders, behavioral health and substance abuse treatment.
Company President and CEO John Peloquin states, "As the need for primary mental health services continues to rise for both adolescents and young adults, Discovery is committed to providing increased access to excellent clinical services. A recent study in The Journal of Abnormal Psychology revealed that rates of major depressive episodes have increased 52 percent among adolescents aged 12-17 and 63 percent among young adults aged 18-251. It is because of this demand, we are pleased to announce that we are now treating adults at the residential, partial hospital, and intensive outpatient level of care. We continue to work diligently to meet the demands of the communities we support and anticipate continued growth in the years ahead."
Discovery Behavioral Health, a national leader in evidence-based clinical treatment, is committed to providing the ultimate inpatient access, through a strategic mix of geographic locations and tiered pricing that makes life changing care affordable and accessible for the largest possible client base.
