Description

Ashburn's Pinel and Frank Hay units are residential care units for inpatients.  They are fully staffed with nurses, as well as inpatient clinical teams which includes psychiatrists, psychotherapists, occupational therapists, general practitioners and a dietitian.  We provide nursing care 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  Each patient has their own bedroom.  

Your treatment in the Pinel and Frank Hay units will involve both group and personal activities throughout the working day.  Individual treatment may include sessions with your own psychotherapist and appointments with any of the other clinical staff as necessary.  Group treatment revolves around small therapy groups, community activities, meetings and interactions with staff and other patients.
