In the bucolic Berkshires of Western Massachusetts, the Austen Riggs Center stands on Main Street in the quintessential American small town of Stockbridge. It feels more like a college campus than a psychiatric hospital and truly is a place of deep personal learning.
Join us on a tour of the Austen Riggs Center. You’ll see patient residences along with treatment and community spaces on our one-of-a-kind open setting campus located on Main Street in Stockbridge, Massachusetts.
Founded in 1919, Riggs has built a distinguished reputation for its patient-centered residential treatment programs.
Riggs attracts top talent to our therapeutic community, including expert psychologists, psychiatrists, clinical social workers, psychiatric nurses, and other healthcare professionals.
If other treatments haven’t worked, Riggs may be right for you. Our relational, patient-centered approach addresses underlying issues, not just symptoms.
You can feel it in the air of our voluntary, open, natural setting. You can hear it in the voices of our caring psychotherapy experts. And you can experience it each day in our flexible residential treatment program tailored to the needs of the individual. At Riggs, the whole person is the focus of treatment—because, while symptoms must be addressed, they also have meaning. We don’t treat just the diagnosis.
Here on our open campus in the Berkshire Hills of Western Massachusetts, we offer choices that balance freedom and responsibility.
Symptoms have meanings that can be understood—and that understanding can help lead you toward recovery.
Relationships are central in human life, and they are central to your psychiatric treatment here at Riggs.
Your voice matters and you have authority in your own life. So at Riggs you actively shape your own residential treatment.
