Military Families

Jackson-Feild Behavioral Health Services is a Tricare certified adolescent Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility located in Jarratt, Virginia. We serve adolescents ages 11 to 17 in need of therapeutic treatment for mental illness and behavioral health issues. Using our evidence-based trauma-informed therapies, we work with adolescents and their families to achieve optimal therapeutic results. Each resident is involved upon admission in a systematic process of evaluation to determine diagnoses and to develop an effective treatment plan. Your child will have ongoing evaluations to continue with the best course of treatment throughout their stay at Jackson-Feild.

Each resident’s treatment team consists of a psychiatrist, nurses, therapist, case manager, cottage staff and teachers.

Jackson-Feild offers evidence-based trauma treatment to include:

  • Trauma-Informed Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

Two evidence-based trauma therapies we utilize which are highly effective and unique to adolescent Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facilities in Virginia are:

  • Neurotherapy
  • Systems Training for Emotional Predictability and Problem Solving (STEPPS)

Family therapy with your adolescent is an integral part to each adolescent’s successful treatment at Jackson-Feild. We understand that military families may be located throughout the United States or other countries. We provide tele-health family therapy sessions when participating in person with your child is not an option.

Gwaltney School, licensed by the Virginia Department of Education, provides weekly educational instruction. Our levels of education are GED, Special Education, and Middle and High School curriculum. College courses are arranged for students seeking advanced education.

Jackson-Feild provides non-denominational spiritual care services for our residents who care to participate. We employ a full time chaplain who provides worship services, character building, mindfulness instruction, and various forms of creative expression.

Jackson-Feild is more than just a treatment center. We have many fun activities and events each week for your child to enjoy on our campus. While receiving treatment, we want your child to have fun and be a kid.
