Programs & Treatment Overview

Fairfax Behavioral Health has adolescent and adult units dedicated to the treatment, education, and recovery of patients with varying needs and levels of treatment.

The goal is simple; achieve rapid psychiatric stabilization of each patient, which facilitates reintegration back into the community and daily functioning. This is accomplished by addressing the cognitive, social, physical, behavioral, and emotional needs of each individual.


We understand that each patient is unique and therefore requires an individualized treatment plan that is structured to provide an all-encompassing continuum of care.

Our programs are designed to treat individuals experiencing high levels of dysfunction and severe psychiatric challenges. We offer multiple therapeutic groups on a daily basis that are designed to help identify treatment issues and offer positive coping skills. In addition to group psychotherapy, psycho-education groups and goals group, we also provide other therapeutic interventions and supports such as yoga, drama, music appreciation, art and recreational therapies.

Every individual admitted will be thoroughly evaluated and treated by our multidisciplinary treatment team; composed of Psychiatrists, Advanced Registered Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners (ARNP), masters-level mental health therapists, Recreational Therapists (RT’s), Nurses, and Mental Health Technicians. All therapies address the specific strengths and weaknesses of each patient and are designed to promote feelings of increased self-worth and emotional control.

ambulanceAdditional services, such as a chemical dependency evaluation; performed by a certified Chemical Dependency Professional and psychological testing; performed by Doctorate-Level Psychologists are provided to patients upon recommendation by their treatment team.

We strive to work collaboratively with the patient, family, and referring health professionals as part of treatment and discharge planning to identify the personal challenges a patient may be facing during their treatment.

Our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) may be recommended as part of the discharge plan following inpatient hospitalization and utilized as a step-down to ensure greater stability prior to resuming daily activities.
