Description of Woodstone Residence

The Woodstone Residence is Canada’s first publicly-funded residential treatment centre for young people (ages 17-24) suffering from eating disorders (anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, eating disorder not otherwise specified). It will be opening in early 2011 on Galiano Island in southern British Columbia, in close proximity to both the Greater Vancouver area and Vancouver Island’s Capital Region.

Developed in partnership by the non-profit Looking Glass Foundation, the BC Government, and the Vancouver Island Health Authority, Woodstone will offer evidence-based, safe care for young people at varying stages of recovery. The treatment program is multidisciplinary; conforms to internationally known clinical practice guidelines; and will be delivered by highly skilled and experienced professionals within a supportive community.

Woodstone will be both a “step up” and “step down” facility, providing treatment for individuals whose needs are not being met by community-based or outpatient services; who lack access to sufficient community-based treatment; or who need support during a transition away from inpatient care. The residence has the capacity to treat 20 medically stable individuals who require an intensive, highly-structured yet home-like therapeutic environment. It will begin treating patients in 2011 with 10 provincially-funded beds, which are open to individuals from any part of British Columbia. The remaining 10 beds will open subsequently on a fee-for-service basis to individuals residing within or outside the province.

Woodstone is seeking skilled and experienced individuals who are interested an exciting opportunity to join a multidisciplinary team, and contribute to shaping an innovative and important new service.
