ABOUT DOMINION BEHAVIORAL HEALTHCARE

Conveniently located right off I-64 in Richmond, Va., Dominion Behavioral Healthcare provides a range of outpatient mental health and addiction treatment services for adults, teens, and children. Detox services are not offered here.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

As an outpatient center, Dominion Behavioral Healthcare primarily offers counseling for anxiety disorders, mood disorders, developmental disorders, adjustment and trauma disorders, substance abuse disorders, and more.

In addition to individual, family, and couples counseling, Dominion also offers adolescent group therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for insomnia, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR), social skills training groups, biofeedback, and sports psychology services.

The center also provides a full range of testing services for children and teens with attention and learning problems. These include ADD/ADHD evaluations, special education testing, and testing for learning disabilities. Medication evaluations and ongoing medication management are also available.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

The treatment team includes board-certified child and adult psychiatrists, as well as psychiatric consultants, master’s level therapists, and licensed clinical social workers (LCSWs).

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

All shared anonymously, the three former clients polled by Rehabs.com as of this writing reported overall satisfactory experiences. One awarded five stars for the counseling options, the treatment effectiveness, and the staff’s level of training and experience. More critical of the center’s food and lack of Internet, this alum nevertheless considered programming here “very effective.”

Another alum gave three stars for treatment effectiveness and complained that, other than a small basketball court, “there was little in the way of outdoor physical exercise.” Having attended several other treatment facilities before coming here, this reviewer added: “it ranks in the middle, therefore I could recommend it to others.”

The third reviewer awarded the facility four stars for its treatment effectiveness, but also mentioned that they were only at the facility for a 72-hour psych hold.

On Google, where Dominion received an above-average rating of 3.1 out of five stars based on nine reports, many reviewers celebrated the staff. “The physicians and therapists are simply amazing,” Google reviewer Linda posted.[1] Liza agreed, calling the doctor here “very competent, attentive, and perceptive.”

WHAT STAFF SAY

The one staffer surveyed by Rehabs.com to date provided positive feedback, specifically highlighting the “kind” people and “edible” food. The anonymous reviewer also sliced through the general stigma surrounding mental health and addiction issues: “Not as scary as society makes it sound. People need to get help and not be ashamed.”

FINANCING

Dominion accepts most major health insurance plans, as well as Medicaid and Medicare.

I'd rather keep my experience to myself, as it is/was very personal.

The meals were generally well made and tasty. Besides a small basketball court, there was little in the way of outdoor physical exercise. It would have been pleasant to go on a staff-supervised walk with other patients. There were too many women on the staff. As someone who was abused throughout my formative by my mother, I do not relate well with women. It would have been helpful to have had a few more male counselors and staffers to whom I could turn. I would go here again unless I found a better facility to enter. Among the facilties I have been to (5) it ranks in the middle, therefore I could recommend it to others.
