Hope is Here at Fairmount

Located on a 27-acre wooded campus, Fairmount Behavioral Health System is a peaceful, therapeutic environment for patients and families.

The spacious campus borders Fairmount Park in the Roxborough section of Philadelphia. With one of the leading alcohol and drug detox and rehab programs in Philadelphia, Fairmount is the provider of choice for individuals requiring specialized co-occurring psychiatric and chemical dependency treatment.

Program Highlights

The staff of Fairmount Behavioral Health System strives to maintain a total therapeutic environment through individualized treatment for each patient and family. Comprehensive patient-oriented activities include group therapy, family therapy, allied therapy and educational services.

One of our strengths is the diversity of therapists that provide treatment. They use various modalities including art, music, movement, cognitive and behavioral approaches, mindfulness techniques and recreation to provide optional avenues of expression and help patients learn about themselves and start to make desired changes.
