DiscoveryMD is our latest addition to the Discovery Behavioral Health portfolio. From mental health assessments, treatment recommendations and medication management via tele-psychiatry to the latest science-backed therapies, access to the right care, right now has never been easier. Through DiscoveryMD, we offer a new treatment approach for a new age of mental wellness.
We remain committed to meeting the needs of all patients, especially those who have not responded to traditional talk therapy and medication. Our Discovery Neurocenters provide solutions for patients with persistent depression through transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and other brain-based treatments. TMS is a proven, effective option for those suffering with major depressive disorder (MDD).
• ABHC offers TMS, combined with a skills group, at three Seattle/Bellevue locations.
• Recently opened in Spring 2021, the Neurocenter at Casa Palmera provides TMS accompanied
with 1:1 counseling, as well as group therapy and skills building.
• Coming soon! Neurocenter at West Los Angeles.
“Before starting TMS, I thought I had run out of options, that my depression would never get better … I feel better now than I have in 10 years.”

We’ve Modernized Patient Care
We’ve taken “meeting patients where they’re at” to new levels with our customized support apps for alumni. Once patients leave our programs, they have lifelong, exclusive access to their program and to fellow alumni and families through HIPAA compliant, invite-only downloadable apps. Through the app, they can celebrate successes, keep up to date on events, get inspirational messages and connect with our staff anytime they need help or have a question.
Additionally, in response to the increased demand for eating disorder treatment that are resulting in waitlists, we have launched CFD Prep, an app for patients and families that will prepare them for treatment and provide them support until their admission day. CFD Prep, the first and only app of its kind, is free and managed by a licensed clinical professional.
Promoting Highest Standards through the Center of Excellence
The Center of Excellence (COE) is a 300+-item instrument used to promote best compliance practices, increase interdepartmental shared learning and collaboration, and ensure survey preparedness through implementation of organizational standards. Data points measured include regulatory requirements, best practices, and company policies. Each item within the tool is categorically placed into the four department key performance indicators (KPIs), demonstrating visibility to areas of excellence and areas where key processes are needed to increase efficiency. KPIs include clinical quality, quality management, including medical quality, staff development and training, and risk and compliance. While the goal is to yield an equal weight distribution between all KPIs, clinical quality holds the majority of the tool’s weight, with focus on value-based metrics, clinical outcomes, national patient safety goals and clinical supervision.
