About Reflections Eating Disorder Treatment Center
Reflections Eating Disorder Treatment Center at Dominion Hospital offers hope to adolescents and adults with eating disorders. We are proud to be the first, and only, program in the Washington Metropolitan Region to offer patients inpatient, partial hospitalization (day), and access to outpatient care in one comprehensive treatment center. Utilizing a multidisciplinary treatment approach, Reflections features a dining room, group therapy rooms, physician consult rooms, and a kitchen—all in a well, appointed comfortable setting. Our goal is for patients to feel comfortable and at home as they tackle, and overcome, their eating disorders.
The Reflections team includes psychiatrists, internal medicine physicians, psychologists, therapists, expressive therapists, registered dietitians, case managers, and specialized nursing support.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, in the United States as many as 10 million females and 1 million males are battling eating disorders. Only one third of people with anorexia nervosa and 6% of people with bulimia nervosa receive mental health care. The mortality rate among people with anorexia has been estimated at 0.56 percent per year, or approximately 5.6 percent per decade, which is about 12 times higher than the annual death rate due to all causes of death among females ages 15-24 in the general population.
Reflections Eating Disorder Treatment Center hopes to make a positive impact on these statistics—one patient at a time.
