Behavioral Health Services 

Frye Regional’s South Campus is an 81-bed behavioral health hospital that offers treatment for adults suffering from emotional, behavioral and addictive difficulties.

South Campus is conveniently located one block from the main entrance of Frye Regional Medical Center. Although physically separate from the Medical Center, South Campus can offer patients all the resources provided by Frye Regional Medical Center.

Frye Regional’s General Adult Psychiatric Unit targets both individuals with impaired cognitive functioning and adults whose cognitive abilities may enable them to benefit from group interaction and apply gained insight for personal growth. There are several units that encompass a wide range of treatment issues.

The treatment provided at South Campus is based on serving the individual needs of each psychiatric patient. Each unit at South Campus is comprised of:

  • Psychiatrists
  • Social workers
  • Registered nurses (many of whom are certified as psychiatric and mental health nurses)
  • Psychiatric technicians/certified nursing assistants
  • Health educators/activity coordinators
