THE AUSTEN RIGGS CENTER is a therapeutic community, open psychiatric hospital, and center for education and research, promoting resilience and self-direction in adults (18+) with complex psychiatric problems.

We specialize in the long-term treatment of psychiatric disorders with intensive psychodynamic psychotherapy and a full range of psychiatric services, offered in a completely voluntary continuum of care that includes inpatient, residential, and day treatment programs. 

We offer effective treatment for people who have been diagnosed with a range of disorders including

In addition, many people come here with histories of substance use disorders or eating disorders, and as long as the person is medically stable and not actively abusing substances, our treatment can be helpful for these conditions as well.

Health insurance plans often provide limited benefits for psychiatric treatment. Few plans provide benefits that reimburse all expenses of long-term treatment at residential care programs like the Austen Riggs Center. Riggs is an out-of-network provider, does not contract with any insurance company and is not a Medicare or Medicaid provider.
