Reflections Levels of Care

Our comprehensive approach to eating disorders treatment at Reflections offers several levels of care. Physician recommendations determine where you’re placed within our continuum—inpatient care, our Partial (day) Program or outpatient care.

Inpatient Care

Designed to guide participants through the recovery process, Reflections’ inpatient hospitalization program matches participants with a specialized team to develop an individualized treatment plan. On your team, you’ll work with:

  • A psychiatrist
  • An internal medicine physician
  • A therapist
  • A registered dietitian
  • Expressive therapists
  • Specialized nursing staff

You receive meal planning and dietetic support from our registered dietitians, who help you create a plan to incorporate three meals and three snacks into each day—with each meal concluding in a support group session.

Every day, you’ll also join in a range of therapeutic activities specifically geared toward your individual treatment plan, such as:

  • Psychotherapy groups
  • Nutritional groups
  • Expressive therapy
  • Meal planning
  • Psycho-education

At least twice weekly, you’ll meet individually with your therapist. You’ll also participate in weekly family therapy sessions.

Achieving successful outcomes with inpatient care offers many participants the opportunity for transitioning to Reflections’ Partial (day) Program for continued support.

Partial Program

Like our inpatient program, Reflections’ Partial Program guides you through the recovery process, especially if you need more support than typically available with outpatient care. Our Partial Program offers structure during the day—12 hours each day, seven days a week—to ensure support during critical meal times, while providing the opportunity for you to stay overnight in your own home. We combine our Partial Program with our inpatient program to allow smooth transition between levels of care. As you complete your stay, you’ll work closely with your treatment team to make a thoughtful shift to outpatient providers.

Access to Outpatient Care

Reflections has an extensive outpatient referral network, which includes psychiatrists, therapists, psychologists, and registered dietitians. Internal medicine care is typically handled by a patient's primary care physician; although, if a patient does not have a primary care internal medicine physician or pediatrician, we can refer a patient to a trusted physician in the region.

Reflections does not provide outpatient services, but we are happy to connect you with providers in your area who will best meet your needs.

Our Participants Say…

“When it comes down to recovery, it really is about how badly you want it, your attitude and how hard you’re willing to work to get better. I’m grateful to everyone at Reflections and for myself.”
