Millions of Americans are living with psychiatric conditions, including mental illness and addiction, which are having a negative effect on their lives. But there is hope, and Inova Behavioral Health Services is here to help.

We offer a broad range of programs and services designed to meet people where they are and help them move forward – to survive and, ultimately, thrive. Inova Behavioral Health Services offers comprehensive inpatient and outpatient behavioral healthcare at locations across Northern Virginia. Our approach enables people to receive the right level of help for them, at any point of need.

Our dedicated team of psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, therapists, social workers and other behavioral health professionals focus on supporting the total well-being – mind and body – of each person we serve. Wherever you are, and whatever you are facing, the time is right to take the first step.

Our approach

At Inova Behavioral Health Services, we approach each person’s treatment as a patient-centered, family-focused partnership. We start by asking detailed questions – and really listening to the answers. Together with you, we create a treatment plan customized to build on your strengths, forming the foundation for a healthy, productive future.

We have the largest network in the Washington, DC region focused on expanding behavioral healthcare access. Using innovative care models and technology, as well as a wide range of clinics and hospital-based programs, we are committed to supporting the well-being of people throughout the region.

We offer several levels of care, from inpatient mental health and substance use disorders treatment programs to outpatient, office-based services. Providing this wide range of interventions allows us to match the program or service to your specific challenges, enabling you to receive more or less intensive services as needed, while staying within Inova.

Our multidisciplinary team approach is strength of Inova Behavioral Health Services. Our team of behavioral health experts includes psychiatrists, psychologists, addiction medicine specialists, nurse practitioners and other advanced practice providers, licensed professional counselors, licensed clinical social workers, nurses, and others. Each member of our team brings a unique perspective, from which we work with you to create a holistic treatment plan that incorporates biological, psychological and social aspects.

Throughout the treatment process, we use evidence-based and trauma-informed techniques that have been proven effective. We consistently update our practices using the latest research. And because mental health and addiction-related issues can occur with other physical disorders, you’ll have streamlined access to coordinated medical care at Inova.
