About Us

We see the person behind the diagnosis.

For more than two decades, Discovery Mood & Anxiety Program has been helping patients and their families build the confidence and skills they need to better navigate life’s challenges. We reveal what’s possible for those who have experienced a history of depression, anxiety or other mood disorders. We know how to turn lives around.

We have over 25 convenient locations across the United States—with various levels of care such as residential, intensive outpatient and partial hospitalization treatments—that are supported by compassionate and dedicated staff.

At Discovery Mood & Anxiety Program, we look at the person, not the diagnosis. We believe that every patient has something that serves as a starting point—we aim to find it so that individuals can lead a more productive, enjoyable and satisfying life.

Systems that Work

Patients can lean on our personalized approach to care: Discovery ESTEEM SystemTM for adolescents and  in-depth program geared toward adults. Each one helps individuals develop the abilities and self-confidence they need to create the life they want.
