Crisis Stabilization Unit
24/7 Support for Those Who Need it
The crisis stabilization unit provides 24/7 support to help stabilize an individual experiencing an emotional crisis. The services are voluntary and offered to individuals 18 years of age and older. The crisis stabilization unit serves as an alternative to hospitalization and is also 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 successfully return to the community.
Services provided in the crisis stabilization unit include:
- Assistance with daily living activities
- Psychiatric nursing assessments
- Medication monitoring
- Medication teaching and health promotion
- Therapeutic treatment activities
- Coordination and linkage with internal and external services
- Social skills training
Individuals served in the crisis stabilization unit also have access to mental health treatment, drug and alcohol treatment and family therapy interventions.
Case managers assist in addressing needs to prepare individuals for successful transitions to the community. Case managers can assist in accessing housing for homeless individuals and address benefit needs, such as teaching individuals how to sign up for Medicaid.
