Looking Glass Residence, formerly Woodstone Residence, is unique in British Columbia and across Canada as a residential treatment centre for young people suffering from anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa or eating disorder not otherwise specified. Looking Glass therapeutic program is based on the strongest available evidence of effective treatment for eating disorders, and is the result of a meticulous development process involving consultation and collaboration with both local and international experts in eating disorders treatment and intervention, as well as mental health and youth care more generally. Looking Glass is staffed by professionals with the skills and experience required to deliver compassionate, person-centred services that foster trusting relationships, develop and enhance resiliency, and support developmentally appropriate levels of independence. The residence has the capacity to treat medically stable individuals who require an intensive, highly-structured yet home-like therapeutic environment.
