Overview of The Pavilion
The Pavilion at Williamsburg Place opened in April of 2012 on the established campus of Williamsburg Place near Historic Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia. The 66-bed, 33,500-square foot inpatient psychiatric facility offers services based on principles of milieu therapy which provide a safe, supportive and secure environment for individuals to return to a stable level of functioning and live life to the fullest. Each individual is assessed by a team of professionals led by a psychiatrist to determine that they meet the medically necessary criteria for inpatient level of care.
The older adult program is designed specifically for adults ages 55 and over. Presenting symptoms may include behavioral disturbances, severe depression with suicidal thoughts, anxiety, hallucinations and delusions. Medical specialists may be consulted to manage underlying illnesses that are contributing to the behavioral, emotional and cognitive instability. A comprehensive discharge plan is designed to ensure that each individual has the services and support to continue to live independently, return to a supportive living environment or facilitate placement in a setting that will maintain their safety and optimal level of functioning.
The Acute program offers an intensive level of care to individuals who are an immediate danger to themselves or others or experiencing severe dysfunction due to a psychiatric condition. Treatment is client centered and designed to assist them to regain control of their behaviors through participation in individual and group therapy, therapeutic activities and psychopharmacology. Whenever possible family and significant others will be involved to ensure a safe return to the community and to establish outpatient services needed for ongoing treatment.
