Merrifield Center - now open!
8221 Willow Oaks Corporate Drive
Fairfax, VA 22031
The CSB’s 24/7 emergency services, mobile crisis team, and entry/referral/assessment services are now located at Merrifield. Outpatient services and supports, intensive case management, psychiatric services, medication management, community-based supports for individuals with intellectual disability, and wellness and health promotion services are also provided at Merrifield. For adult behavioral health care services (mental health and/or substance use disorders), individuals (18 and over) can walk in and receive, without previous appointment, an in-person screening and assessment at Merrifield from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. The center also has peer support services and a pharmacy, and will soon have a primary health care clinic and other services to promote and sustain recovery. Note: The CSB's Crisis Care program on Woodburn Road did not move to Merrifield. [See the directory of services located at Merrifield Center.]
CSB service recipients provided input into the building design, which is intended to promote wellness, recovery and health management in a secured yet welcoming environment. The co-location and integration of various services enables us to better serve individuals who have co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders.
The centrally located facility offers community-based services and supports to prevent crises and help people with behavioral health challenges integrate successfully into the community. The building itself is designed to integrate successfully and beautifully with its physical surroundings.
This project has been part of the county’s capital building plan for years. It is made possible through bond funding, a land exchange with Inova Fairfax Hospital, and lease savings as CSB programs moved out of leased facilities into the new county-owned building.
