Novant Health Prince William Medical Center's (PWMC) Behavioral Health Department is dedicated to providing the highest-quality inpatient and outpatient mental health and substance abuse treatment. The department is managed in partnership with the Sheppard Pratt Health System, Maryland's largest provider of behavioral healthcare services. For more than 10 consecutive years, Sheppard Pratt Health System's flagship psychiatric hospital has been ranked one of the nation's best psychiatric institutions by U.S. News and World Report.
Recently, the PWMC Behavioral Health Department was the only hospital-based psychiatric program in Virginia to receive the prestigious Governor's Recognition Award at a ceremony hosted by the Department of Mental Health, Mental Retardation and Substance Abuse Services (DMHMRSAS) in Richmond. The Behavioral Health unit has also been designated as a "Center of Excellence" by United Healthcare and Anthem. Our programs are also registered as a preferred provider in the Healthcare Impaired Practitioner Program administered by the Commonwealth of Virginia's Department of Health Professions.
The PWMC Behavioral Health Department offers programs and services to meet the mental-health and substance-abuse treatment needs of adults and adolescents. Approximately $1.3 million in renovations were completed to increase the department's capacity to treat very ill patients in a state-of-the-art therapeutic environment. In addition, aggressive recruitment efforts have resulted in the appointment of a total of 10 salaried psychiatrists. Nine of the 10 psychiatrists are Board-certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.

The Novant Health Behavioral Health's 32-bed, adult-inpatient hospitalization program provides intensive and immediate help when problems are so overwhelming that an individual is not safe at home or able to function without a structured environment. Medical detoxification and group milieu therapy as well as active psychiatric treatment are offered to adult inpatients. To discuss admission, call one of our intake coordinators at 703-369-8464.
The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and associated Relapse Prevention Program provide adults age 18 and older, who do not need inpatient medical detoxification or residential treatment, an opportunity to participate in a structured addiction treatment during a day or evening program while attending work or school. The IOP is staffed by clinical professionals who work as a team to provide the highest-quality treatment and comprehensive care. To obtain more information and/or to schedule an evaluation for the outpatient addiction programs, call 703-369-8404.
