Services Provided by the Community Services Board
Accessing CSB Services
The Community Services Board provides services for people of all ages who have mental illness, substance use disorders, and/or intellectual disability, and for infants and toddlers with developmental delays.
All residents of Fairfax County and the cities of Fairfax and Falls Church can access CSB acute care and emergency services; entry and referral services; and wellness, health promotion and prevention services. All children up to age three who have developmental delays and meet certain criteria are eligible for Infant and Toddler Connection services.
Most other, non-emergency CSB services are primarily for people whose conditions seriously impact their daily functioning. For example, women and girls who are pregnant and intravenous drug users, and people asking for treatment for abuse of opioid drugs (including prescription drugs) have priority for substance use disorder services. Learn more about the CSB’s priority service population criteria for access to non-emergency acute CSB services.
However, anyone with a concern related to mental health, substance use, or intellectual or developmental disability may contact the CSB for help in finding appropriate treatment and resources either from the CSB or from other service providers in our community.
Many individuals who come to the CSB for behavioral health services have "co-occurring" mental health and substance use disorders. [A quick self-test can help you identify whether you may be experiencing this.]
