With locations in Long Beach and Laguna Hills, California, Shoreline Center offers Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP), Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP), as well as outpatient therapy for eating disorder treatment. Since 1995, the Shoreline Center has successfully been treating anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorders for both men and women. Satori House is a transitional living home for women 18 years and over who are participating in one of the programs.
Accommodations and Amenities
Satori House is a newly renovated, spacious six-bed home, located just steps away from the ocean and several blocks from the Shoreline office in Long Beach. All bedrooms are shared between two residents with twin or full-sized beds, dressers and shared closet space. The home also features shared living areas with TV and a fully equipped kitchen.
During their stay, clients are served three healthy meals a day with menus designed by on-staff nutritionists and dietitians. Because developing a healthy relationship with food is a focus of the program, residents also spend time in the kitchen learning about the basics of nutrition and how to cook. Support is available for those who opt for vegetarian diets, but not for vegan diets.
Rules and Regulations
Residents at Satori House must participate in a structured treatment program at Shoreline Center and actively work on their recovery. They usually stay 30 to 90 days and are encouraged to build life skills and participate in tasks that will help them gain confidence and self-esteem as they develop a balanced and full life. The women master fundamental living skills, such as grocery shopping and food preparation, career development, budgeting and time management.
The women receive guidance from a live-in house manager and trained recovery coaches to learn to manage stress and implement positive coping skills in place of the eating disorder. Residents must attend a weekly individual living-skills session to review their progress and a weekly community house meeting. Residents must also begin to incorporate school, work or volunteer responsibilities into their schedule while still sustaining their program of recovery.
Residents are encouraged to develop a routine that includes developing new hobbies and self-care. This can include sessions of yoga, massage therapy meditation, art therapy or creative writing.
Overall, Shoreline Center’s Satori House offers a safe and structured transitional living environment for women who need some extra support in their recovery from eating disorders during outpatient treatment. Shoreline is an expansive organization with individualized treatment plans for eating disorders and dual diagnoses. For women seeking a safe place to begin recovery, Satori House is a great choice. For the safety and privacy of clients, the exact address is undisclosed.
