CRISIS STABILIZATION UNIT

We are here to help anyone suffering from acute or severe psychiatric symptoms.  Psychiatric symptoms can include:  severe depression, anxiety, hearing/ seeing things that aren’t there, etc.  Patients on the crisis stabilization unit do not have to suffer from Substance Use Disorder.  Many times these symptoms appear as signs of an untreated mental health disorder.  Our medical and therapy team can work to provide a safe environment for treatment and stabilization.

What happens during Crisis Stabilization?

Our multidisciplinary team of professionals will form a treatment plan that will focus on your specific challenges and goals.  You will be closely monitored in a comfortable, safe environment.  You may also participate in individual and/or group therapy, supportive counseling, or other therapeutic activities.
