24/7 Support for Those Who Need it
Our crisis stabilization program provides 24/7 support to help stabilize an individual experiencing an emotional crisis. This service is voluntary and offered to individuals 18 years of age and older. The crisis stabilization program serves as an alternative to hospitalization and can also be utilized as a step-down from inpatient mental health facilities. This service can shorten a person’s length of stay in the hospital by providing a transition from inpatient treatment to community treatment. In addition, services can offer a respite from situational stressors or events. Treatment is aimed at restoring the ability of the residents to maintain safety while enhancing their recovery, so they can safely and successfully return to the community.
Our program is under the direct supervision and direction of a licensed Psychiatrist.
Services provided in our crisis stabilization program include:
Assistance with daily living activities
Medication education and health promotion
Therapeutic treatment activities
Coordination and referrals with internal and external services
Social skills training
Individuals served in the crisis stabilization program will be provided with a thorough discharge plan once the program is complete and will be referred by our psychiatrist to an appropriate step down to ensure a successful transition for that individual back into the community.
