At Rock Recovery Center, we provide a life-changing process with a side of adventure to help our clients learn about themselves and nature. The lives of people who suffer from drug or alcohol addiction can take one of 3 turns, death, jail or treatment. If we are a good fit, our therapists will help you determine the payment process that best meets your needs. We accept CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield and offer sliding scale financial assistance to anyone who needs it. “I’m hoping that, over time, we can encourage more people to recognize the importance of supporting this work,” she says.

Following graduation, she began working in day treatment with high risk youth where her passion for long term recovery began. Tristan began specializing in her work with families, and working with co-occurring disorders with Addiction, PTSD, Complex PTSD, Attachment, and Mood Disorders. Continuing her training, Tristan became a Equine Assisted Psychotherapist, using horses in a therapeutic environment to facilitate recovery and change. For someone in recovery, learning to have clean and sober fun, feeling a part of, connecting to a group, and quieting the mind are keys to a successful new life. We love partnering with organizations that are passionate about helping individuals access support to recover and find freedom from an eating disorder.

We Don’t Just Care About Sobriety

Outside of work, Dom enjoys spending time with his Tibetan Terrier or family and friends. Rock Recovery is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that supports the journey to freedom from disordered eating through holistic and accessible recovery programming and community empowerment. We do this by removing barriers of cost, location, and timing, and by helping people break isolation.

  1. There is little transitional support for people with these illnesses once they leave inpatient care.
  2. Volunteering in support of activities you care about is a great way to feel better mentally and emotionally.
  3. When the session is done, our “band” members feel a new energy all throughout their minds and spirits.

In joining Rock’s groups she never felt more seen, heard and accepted. Rock to Recovery® has developed powerful, engaging and effective remote sessions. With tools like Zoom, Facetime, Skype, Doxy, VSEE and others, we have already transitioned what we already do into the digital realm. We have developed multi-week curriculums and continue to offer our dynamic services over the internet, with incredible results. Rock to Recovery helps people heal and transform their lives through the powerful experience of writing, playing, and performing music as a group.

Some (but not all) clients arrive on Rock Recovery’s doorstep after having been hospitalized for illnesses like anorexia and bulimia. They engage with the nonprofit just as they are stepping down from a higher level of care. There is little transitional support for people with these illnesses once they leave inpatient care.

Integrate faith into your recovery journey by joining one of our nationwide faith-based support groups today.


We do this by creating a “band” and writing and recording songs together with Rock to Recovery’s staff of professional musicians, who are also in recovery. We help bring fun into treatment and recovery by offering a natural escape from the fear-based mind. We help to vent emotions by writing lyrics and singing together for release, in real-time.

Taking it one day at a time Cole always remembers to trust the process and enjoy the little things. She found support through a six-week course for people with eating disorders that was run by a local church and also started seeing a therapist. Today, she eats what she wants, exercises to a reasonable degree, and helps others facing the same struggles she did. She is now executive director of Rock Recovery, a Rosslyn nonprofit that provides comprehensive outpatient services for people with disordered eating. Rock to Recovery was created to help soothe the restless souls of those in recovery.
