About Us

Many issues can be resolved within a few hours in the Crisis Intervention Clinic. For those that can’t, we offer overnight observation in a safe and secure environment that is staffed 24/7 with behavioral health medical professionals (psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants), nurses, behavioral health technicians, social services staff, and peer supports. After 24 hours, the majority of people are able to have their crisis resolved and continue their recovery at home or in other community-based settings. If continued hospitalization is needed, we will arrange admission either in our own inpatient unit or other hospitals in the area.
