State Operated Facilities
Virginia operates 15 facilities: seven behavioral health facilities, four training centers, a psychiatric facility for children and adolescents, a medical center, a psychiatric geriatric hospital and a center for behavioral rehabilitation. State facilities provide highly structured, intensive services for citizens of the Commonwealth of Virginia who have mental illness, intellectual disability or are in need of substance abuse services. More information about each of these facilities is available in the tabs below.
In the evolutionary movement towards a single, integrated system of care, increased emphasis has been placed on the establishment of community services and on the more effective and efficient use of state facilities. This emphasis has defined the role of state facilities as one of several resources in an overall continuum of care. Patients are initially evaluated and referred to the mental health facilities by staff from Community Services Boards (CSBs). Pre-admission screening services are provided by CSBs on a 24-hours per day, 7 days per week basis.
