An Inviting Atmosphere of Care
Located on the main campus, the Inn is our primary residence, with 24/7 nursing availability and accommodations for approximately 40 patients. When you accept an offer of admission, you’ll enter one of our Inn programs, which will give you an opportunity to get to know members of the nursing staff, other members of your treatment team, and the patient community.
If, as most do, you remain at Riggs after the initial six-week period of evaluation and treatment, your treatment team may approve a lower level of care, but most remain in an Inn program beyond six weeks. While living in the Inn, you’ll have full access to our Therapeutic Community Program and our Activities Program.
Resembling a New England historic inn or college building more than a hospital, there are three floors that include mostly single rooms, some with private baths, others with shared bathrooms. The nurse's station and medication dispensing closet are conveniently located near patient rooms, while community space includes a dining room offering buffet-style meals, a library, a fully equipped modern gym, and many relaxing common areas where you can find nursing staff or other patients, day or night.
