COVID-19 Update: Online Telehealth is now being offered through Discovery Mood & Anxiety as an alternate to in-person partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient treatment. Learn more about our Online Telehealth treatment program here.

We will continue to offer residential treatment for individuals who need a higher level of care. You can learn about all that we are doing to protect the safety and wellbeing of our patients and staff here.


Our Fairfield facility is designed to cater to a very small group of clients ranging in age from 11 to 18 years old. By never treating more than 6 clients at one time, we can offer extremely individualized care at this gender-inclusive residence. Our clients are often struggling with depression, self-harm, mood disorders, OCD, anxiety, PTSD, and RAD. Given the intimate and personalized setting, we are able to address each client with a humanistic, empowered, and family systems approach. Our program integrates a variety of therapies including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), individual therapy, family therapy, communication skills group, equine therapy, and trauma informed Yoga.

During the fall and winter seasons, we partner with the local YMCA to promote and strengthen the mind-body connection. We also advocate for families in ensuring that clients receive all services required by the local school district to safeguard their continued recovery post-treatment. We maintain a close working relationship with Yale University Medical Center, allowing us to offer clients access to their interventional psychiatric program while residing in our home. Our interdisciplinary team members are recognized leaders in their fields, all contributing to the high level of personalized care.

The bucolic New England town of Fairfield is close to beaches, hiking trails, and nature preserves. We are just minutes off the 195 and Merritt Parkway.
