Jordon Babcock, EMBA, CEO


Springwoods Behavioral Health has been providing high-quality behavioral healthcare services that patients recommend to families and friends, physicians prefer for their patients, and employees are proud to provide for 12 years. Located at 1955 West Truckers Drive in Fayetteville, Springwoods is an 80-bed behavioral health facility providing comprehensive care for adolescents, adults and a unit designed exclusively for women. The six-acre campus, which opened in 2009, provides a secluded and serene setting for comfort and healing. Located off Highway 112, Springwoods is accessible to residents of Northwest Arkansas and the surrounding communities.


Over the past year and a half, we have been making adjustments to our programs to help accommodate our community’s needs. This has allowed us to expand what we offer in our system of care. We have added telehealth for some of our outpatient programs, which has extended our ability to serve patients in more remote locations or those with transportation needs. We have also implemented all recommended precautions from the CDC, the Department of Health, and our local infection control experts in regard to COVID-19. Every patient is screened prior to admission to our facility, and we monitor temperatures and symptoms of all visitors/staff. Through the past year, we have built a stronger bond with our community partners in working together as a team. We are proud to be the preferred Behavioral Health Hospital in NWA and to be part of such a great community!


Our adult, women’s program and adolescent acute inpatient programs treat mental health patients in a physician-led intensive therapeutic structure, providing medical and psychiatric stabilization with 24-hour nursing care for patients experiencing critical symptoms. Springwoods offers a comprehensive treatment approach to stabilizing acute psychiatric and addictive disease problems in a safe and structured environment. Inpatient services treat suicidal/homicidal thoughts, medical detoxification, drug/alcohol use disorder, depression/mood disorders, personality disorders, bipolar disorder, panic/anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder.


Springwoods also offers day treatment programs. Adult patients and adolescents who have achieved some stability but continue to need more intensive treatment than traditional outpatient therapy, or to prevent hospitalization, may be treated within one of the day treatment programs: the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) or Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP).


The Partial Hospitalization Program provides intensive treatment for adult or adolescent patients with mild to moderate symptoms. The program features an individualized treatment plan, full day of group therapy — five groups daily, five days a week, medication management, with approximately one to four weeks of treatment. Partial hospitalization is available Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. for adults and 4 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. for adolescents.


The Intensive Outpatient Program is for adult patients with less serious symptoms but still require frequent therapy. This program can be a step-down level of care from partial hospitalization. The IOP is a half-day program, four days a week that provides daily group therapy. Intensive outpatient is available from 9 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday.


Springwoods Behavioral Health accepts referrals from the professional community (doctors, hospitals, therapists, social workers, nurses, schools, courts, churches and community agencies) as well as from families.


Qualified assessment and referral staff perform assessments 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, at no cost. Each assessment is evaluated by a physician who recommends the appropriate level of care for treatment. Recommendations are then discussed with the patient/family to assist in making an informed decision about treatment. 


On behalf of our team here at Springwoods, we would like to extend an offer to the community for anyone who is interested in our services or would like to learn more about mental and behavioral healthcare. The stigma of mental illness is an issue we face together as a community, and it is through information and positive experiences that we can make a difference. If you have any questions or would like some additional information about the specialty programs or services we offer, please feel free to contact us. 


Springwoods Behavioral Health is a provider for most insurance/managed care plans, as well as Medicare, and is accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JTC) and licensed by the Arkansas Department of Health.
