Satori House Eating Disorder Transitional Living / Extended Care Residence
Named after the Japanese word for “sudden enlightenment,” The Shoreline Center for Eating Disorder Treatment – Satori House in Long Beach, California, is a non-clinical residence for those in recovery from all forms of eating disorders: a place where residents get to experience life and learn how to face its challenges while gaining support in a recovery-based home environment.
Our Recovery Goals for You
Our ultimate goal is to give Satori residents:
- Life skills they need;
- Show them how to transition gently into independent living;
- Provide them the ability to flourish on their own.
Our on-site house-mom offers compassionate and supportive guidance and accountability when needed.
Who can live at Satori House?
Residents are women 18 years and older. Some individuals are referred upon discharge from residential care, and others recognize that their current living situation does not offer the level of support needed to stay on the road to recovery and participate in life. Some people stay for 2 months; some people have stayed over a year!
While living at Satori, individuals must be participating at a level of treatment that is clinically appropriate. This might be our eating disorder partial hospital/day treatment program, our eating disorder intensive outpatient program, or seeing one of our primary therapists and dietitians on an individual basis. Clients are required to follow house guidelines and are encouraged to participate in Shoreline’s alumni group if not already in intensive treatment.
What We Require From You
We believe in balanced living, so all Satori residents are required to participate in the community by taking a class, volunteering , or for some it might mean having a part-time or full-time job. It is our goal to help individuals integrate and practice recovery skills in the real world. Our “house-mom” is a Shoreline alumni, who helps with individual stressors, with compassion and encouragement.
Providing Satori House as an option can greatly reduce the chance of relapse, a real problem for those in eating disorder recovery.
