Our Treatment Philosophy

Dominion Hospital is dedicated to meeting the behavioral healthcare needs of its community, region, and beyond accessing our programs. Consistent with its heritage, Dominion Hospital works with a dedicated medical and multidisciplinary staff to provide a continuum of high-quality behavioral healthcare. The treatment philosophy is rooted in a recovery model that provides individualized support and through evidenced-based practices. We believe that people can recover from mental health disorders. For some individuals, recovery is the ability to live a fulfilling and productive life despite a disability. For others, recovery implies the reduction or complete remission of symptoms. We also believe that treatment leads to resilience. We define resilience as the personal and community qualities that enable us to rebound from adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats, or other stresses — and to go on with life with a sense of mastery, competence, and hope. Dominion Hospital believes that an integrated, individualized, patient centered, and holistic treatment program, in combination with the appropriate social support, can help individuals and their families gain mastery over their mental health problems.

Dominion Hospital is grounded in the following principles:

  • Empowering patients to recovery
  • Belief in the human capacity to change
  • Dedication to evidence-based treatments
  • Belief that family and social support is the cornerstone of recovery
  • Dedication to trauma-informed care

As behavioral health professionals, we believe and are committed to the human capacity to change and to partner in the improvement of their quality of life. We are dedicated to competent, compassionate and respectful care for all patients and their families. We are committed to providing the best, evidenced based care available to patients and to continue to strive to seek and learn about all avenues of appropriate care.
