The Psychiatric Institute of Washington is a 130-bed facility with inpatient, outpatient and partial hospitalization programs. Excellence in behavioral health programs for children, adolescents and adults has been the mission of The Psychiatric Institute of Washington since it opened nearly 50 years ago. As the first and only free standing psychiatric care facilities in Washington, DC, our team has a reputation for providing innovative treatment and care. We strive for excellence, never losing sight of providing patients with hope – hope that although their stay is relatively brief, they may find their way to a brighter future.
At PIW our focus is not on problems, it’s on people. Entering the hospital is a big and important step towards healing and recovery. PIW offers inpatient services for adults 18 and over dealing with mental health crises and substance abuse issues.

We have mental health counseling programs for patients who suffer from major psychiatric disorders, depression, substance abuse and behavioral problems.
