At the Austen Riggs Center, we take the same attentive, personalized approach to the patient admission process as we do to your voluntary treatment once you’re here.
Patients and their families often ask about what Riggs supplies and what they should bring. You’ll find essentials here such as linens and towels, toilet tissue, bar soap, and more. Some former patients have compiled a helpful list of suggested items you may wish to bring.
If you are considering voluntary treatment at Riggs for yourself or a family member, please contact Admissions for more information. Referring Clinicians: If you are considering referring a patient to Riggs, please contact Admissions with any questions, or to begin the process.
Among the most important considerations for patients and their families is the cost of voluntary treatment at Riggs. Our all-inclusive fees vary according to the program, length of stay, and intensiveness of services provided. We will always communicate with you honestly, openly, and clearly about financing your stay at Riggs.
At Riggs, we welcome adults (aged 18 and up) from across the country and around the world who seek a self-directed behavioral treatment approach to help them return to a more satisfying life. Our intensive, voluntary residential treatment is for people who are not in acute crisis, but for whom outpatient treatment just isn’t enough.
