Behavioral Health

When life becomes puzzling we can help you put the pieces back together. No problem is too big, nor too complex that we cannot solve by working together.

Fairview Range Medical Center works to provide you, your family and the residents of our region a diverse array of mental health and behavioral programs.  Professional staff members are available to provide 24-hour emergency services.

We offer services for acute care, judicially committed and voluntary patients. The following mental health services are available at Fairview Range Medical Center's medical campus: 

Acute Care

The acute care unit is often the first intervention a person in crisis receives. The staff and facility provide a safe haven for the person in crisis. The qualified staff of nurses, social workers, therapists, recreation therapists, mental health workers, and physicians work as a team to bring about the best possible outcome for the patient and family. 

Our licensed nursing staff is available 24 hours a day to provide services ranging from crisis intervention to personal care. Services are provided to adult individuals who have a wide variety of mental disorders. Family members are provided with educational information about mental illness and treatment. At the time of discharge patients are assisted in obtaining appropriate living arrangements and follow-up care.

Judicially Committed or Voluntary

Judicially committed and voluntary patient services include: reality orientation, goals/community group, social skills training, medication/health group, recreation and individual therapy. Professionals involved on the unit area are: nurses, mental health workers, activity personnel, therapists, and physicians. 

The goal is to provide comprehensive inpatient services as close as possible to the patients' local community, to shorten the length of stays for committed patients, and to facilitate the connection between inpatient and outpatient services to make the continuum of care the patients in our area as seamless as possible.

Partial Hospitalization Program

What is the Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)?

Partial hospitalization is an intensive short-term group based program if you’re experiencing an acute episode of depression and/or anxiety. Often, individuals in the program are receiving therapy for the first time and will be transitioning back to work, school or home. Groups meet five hours a day, five days a week, for about two-to-three weeks. You’ll also have regular follow-up with a medication manager. This program may offer a step-down from hospitalization.
