Acute Psychiatric Care

Fairfax’s Acute Care Program is designed for people experiencing distressing and debilitating symptoms from a mental illness that requires immediate attention. Whether this is your first experience with these symptoms or a repeat episode, safety and stabilization is the number one priority. These types of episodes are often accompanied by psychosis. The onset of these symptoms may be sudden and rapid and can be caused by environmental or other triggers. This experience can be extremely frightening for the person and their loved ones, as the person may lash out and hurt themselves or others. A person experiencing these symptoms may require Involuntary Admission at our facilities.

Co-occurring Substance Abuse & Detox Care

Fairfax’s Co-occurring and Detox program is for individuals who have substance use disorders, as well as mental health disorders. These individuals may have been previously diagnosed as having co-occurring disorders, dual disorders or dual diagnosis. A substance use disorder includes alcohol and drug abuse or dependency. Individuals diagnosed with mental health disorders often use substances to feel better. For example, people who are anxious may want a substance that helps them feel calm. People who are fearful want a substance that alleviates their fears, etc. Some of the most common mental health disorders found in chemically dependent people include mood and anxiety disorders. An even higher percentage of people with severe mental illness also have co-occurring substance abuse disorders, which include schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorder. We help through our therapy, medication management and more.

Mood Disorders Care

Mood disorders can alter your or your loved one’s general emotional state or mood to be distorted or inconsistent with circumstances and interferes with the ability to function. Individuals may become extremely sad, empty or irritable (depressed), or may experience severe depression alternating with being excessively happy (mania). Anxiety disorders can also affect moods and often occur along with depression. Mood disorders can increase the risk of suicide. It’s important to seek immediate help if you or a loved one is experiencing severe mood disorder symptoms. We can help through therapy and medication management.

General Psychiatric Care

Fairfax’s General Psychiatric Care Program was developed to meet the ever-increasing need within the North Sound area, for community-based inpatient psychiatric services. This environment of care is embedded in the Pacific campus at Providence Medical Center. As a community-based program, there are both voluntary and involuntarily detained patients who are experiencing a wide spectrum of psychiatric conditions requiring a safe, evidenced-based, short term 24-hour care. These conditions may range from depression to disturbances of thought. As with all our psychiatric programs, we use a multidisciplinary approach to assessment, treatment, medication management and discharge planning.

Day and Outpatient Services

Fairfax’s Outpatient Program is part of the continuum of care offered for Adults and Adolescents. This can be a good alternative to hospitalization when the patient needs more intensive care, than an office visit, but doesn’t require 24-hour care. Intensive Outpatient is typically a three-hour program, three days a week. Care is primarily delivered in a group session, though individual assessments and follow up are also included. Partial Hospitalization is typically five hours a day, five days a week, for up to three weeks. Patients in Partial Hospitalization are also under the care of Psychiatrist or Advanced Practice Psychiatric Nurse.
