When someone has an eating disorder, the whole family feels the impact. Families play a crucial role in the clinical treatment process, especially at Reflections. We strongly recommend family participation in group therapy sessions, visits during designated hours and your involvement in nutrition education. Adolescents particularly benefit when families take part in their recovery.
What Sets Reflections Apart
Personalized attention in a comfortable setting and an approach that promotes healing and recovery—treatment for eating disorders is all we do. You’re assured of having continuous contact with all members of our team to lets us get to know you, develop your individual treatment plan and deliver the best care possible.
You’ll appreciate our attention to detail. From our tranquil and nurturing environment, contemporary facility décor and comfortable furnishings that feel just like home to our effective program structure, ongoing support services and our knowledgeable care team—everything is carefully selected and everyone is completely committed to working with you on your journey.
We believe you can’t put a number on the length of time it takes someone to recover from an eating disorder. Many insurance companies authorize several days at a time. We work with your insurance carrier to advocate for the length of time you need.

First, you’ll meet briefly with a member of our admissions team to complete required paperwork and receive an orientation with our nursing staff. Restricted items must be sent home with a family member or secured behind our nursing station. You can take a few minutes to place your belongings in your locker before joining your peers for group activities essential to building your support network.
We start each day by taking your vital signs before breakfast, followed by a community meeting after the morning meal. Then, you’ll plan your menu with our Reflections registered dietitian. A therapeutic group follows each meal.
Next, you’ll participate in a thought-processing group and expressive therapy.
After lunch, you’ll participate in an information/education session, nutrition group or a social work group and enjoy some free time. You’ll also have an opportunity for personal focus, as well as time to complete your schoolwork if you’re continuing your studies while you’re with us.
With a physician’s approval, you may take part in yoga, stretching or other light exercise in the afternoon.
After dinner, you’ll participate in a closer group meeting, review the day, and prepare for your evening at home.
While we can accommodate vegetarian meal preferences, we’re unable to accommodate vegan preferences. We’ll ask you about allergies during the intake process.
Participants in our Partial (day) Program use materials from their own schools, and we help facilitate transitions between your days at Reflections and your days at school. Our approach is to work with you in the least restrictive environment possible, and our goal is to make the proper assessment that puts you on the best path for successful discharge and aftercare.
