Psychiatric disorders with intensive psychodynamic psychotherapy and a full range of psychiatric services, offered in a completely voluntary continuum of care that includes inpatient, residential, and day treatment programs.

We offer effective treatment for people who have been diagnosed with a range of disorders including

• depressive disorders;

• bipolar disorder;

• borderline personality disorder (BPD);

• other personality disorders;

• psychotic disorders including schizophrenia;

• post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD);

• obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD); and

• anxiety disorders.

In addition, many people come here with histories of substance use disorders or eating disorders, and as long as the person is medically stable and not actively abusing substances, our treatment can be helpful for these conditions as well.

We treat the individual, not the diagnosis. Diagnostic labels cannot capture the essence of an individual’s struggles or strengths, and they often obscure what people have in common. Many of our patients have multiple diagnoses; and many have been identified as “treatment resistant” in the past. Often they seek psychiatric treatment at Riggs because they need a different approach, and many opt to stay in our long term residential treatment program following an initial evaluation and treatment period.

All patients have intensive psychodynamic psychotherapy four times a week with a psychiatrist or clinical psychologist. The goal is to help the person expand their capacity for work, play, and love by fostering improved self-esteem and resilience, and by helping them acknowledge and come to terms with whatever has previously blocked their development.

Recognizing the importance of the social context, we offer in-depth family evaluation, support for family

members, and family therapy, as well as a robustTherapeutic Community Programin which patients can develop supportive peerrelationshipsand learn about themselves with others. We offer opportunities for participation in patient government, in social and recreational activities, in reflective process groups, and in health and wellness activities such as meditation and yoga.

• Psychotherapy

• Psychopharmacology

• Family Work

• Discharge Planning
