Located on a 27-acre wooded campus, Fairmount Behavioral Health System is a peaceful, therapeutic environment for patients and families. Fairmount is a major regional resource for children, adolescents and adults who have psychiatric and behavioral problems as well as alcohol and drug dependency needs. The spacious campus borders Fairmount Park in the Roxborough section of Philadelphia. With one of the leading alcohol and drug detox and rehab programs in Philadelphia, Fairmount is the provider of choice for individuals requiring specialized co-occurring psychiatric and chemical dependency treatment.
The staff of Fairmount Behavioral Health System strives to maintain a total therapeutic environment through individualized treatment for each patient and family. Comprehensive patient-oriented activities include group therapy, family therapy, allied therapy and educational services.
One of our strengths is the diversity of therapists that provide treatment. They use various modalities including art, music, movement, cognitive and behavioral approaches, mindfulness techniques and recreation to provide optional avenues of expression and help patients learn about themselves and start to make desired changes.
Our patients deserve effective and predictable treatment programming to help develop healthy behaviors. A patient’s time with us is limited, so we must take advantage of the opportunity to stabilize and teach healthy coping skills. This means all services are delivered on time and with the highest quality. We may maximize our patients’ interest and participation in treatment activities by providing choices within structure.
When a patient is admitted, we make a promise to them and the other stakeholders in their life. We pledge to provide accurate and thorough assessments, develop and implement a rigorous treatment plan, deliver group therapy and psycho-education on time every day, document our actions completely and promptly, follow the clinical schedule and carefully design a thorough discharge plan. We keep our promises.
