Where Hope and Healing Begin

Fairfax Behavioral Health is a private, free-standing mental health hospital that specializes in psychiatric and detox treatment. We strive to meet and respond to the needs of our community by offering a continuum of care and evidenced-based programs at multiple locations within our region. We have behavioral health facilities and services located in Kirkland, Everett and Monroe, Washington. Mental and behavioral health challenges are a growing concern within our communities. Whether it is ourselves or a loved one, we will all likely be affected by behavioral health and mental disorders or illness. This drives our passion for providing evidenced-based outpatient and inpatient psychiatric treatment programs with successful outcomes.

Today’s reality is that 1 in 4 people worldwide are affected by mental or neurological disorders at some point in their lives, according to the World Health Organization. Approximately 43.8 million (18.5% of our population), or 1 in 5 adults in the U.S. experience mental illness in a given year, according to NAMI.

Mental health disorders are now the leading cause of ill-health and disability worldwide. If you or a loved one is dealing with these challenges, please understand that you’re not alone. We are here to help. Our behavioral hospitals offer both inpatient and outpatient psychiatric services to serve adults, teens, and seniors. Our programs are extensive. They encompass acute care, teen care, co-occurring detox and addiction, mood disorders, group therapy, psychotherapy groups and more. Our team at Fairfax strives to improve the status quo surrounding mental health by providing quality care and treatment through inpatient and outpatient services. At Fairfax Behavioral Health, we remove stigmas by building bridges and awareness within our community.

Fairfax Behavioral Health Hospital was founded in 1930 and has been serving our community for nearly 92 years.

Our Philosophy. Our Purpose.

Fairfax Behavioral Health is committed to providing quality behavioral health services and mental health programs that strengthen our community and empower its people to live their best life possible. Evidenced-based principles and the most current information about human behavior have been incorporated into the care plans for each program.  However, we can’t do this alone. Our treatment philosophy encourages our patients to solve problems in a protected environment while encouraging independence and self-esteem.  This commitment to treatment is a meaningful, reciprocal interaction, which requires patients to demonstrate self-responsibility and a desire to work towards understanding, solving and/or managing their issues.

Our inpatient and outpatient treatment programs include organized group activities, community meetings, group therapy, family therapy and activities therapy designed to involve the patients and explore personal attitudes and psychological, physical, spiritual and environmental factors which have contributed to stress in their lives. Our therapeutic programs include lifestyle enhancements such as yoga, music, creative writing, recreational activities and more. A multi-disciplinary team approach is utilized in the assessment and in the provision of appropriate treatment interventions.  This approach is achieved within the framework of the therapeutic milieu, which maintains support for our patients as they learn to deal with their issues.

You’re unique. Your treatment plan is too.

Fairfax Behavioral Health provides a total therapeutic environment through an individualized treatment program for each patient.  Care is provided according to an established code of ethical conduct and strict adherence to patient rights.  Involvement of family, whenever possible, is encouraged to promote support for the patient’s recovery.  The treatment team is comprised of the psychiatrist, nurses, clinical therapists (social workers and clinical psychologists), discharge planners, recreational therapists, program specialists and other support staff.

The multi-disciplinary team works together with the patient to establish an individualized treatment plan.  Ongoing communication is established with family, significant others, referring physician and/or community agency. Continuity of care occurs at every level of treatment, ensuring appropriate therapeutic goals, interventions and referrals.
