Acute Crisis Services

Our Emergency Crisis Support Program is a short-term crisis placement, with stays intended as a step-down placement from a more restrictive placement such as a hospital, mental health facility and/or jail. Staffing ratio of 2:1. The placement also can help stabilize an individual with behavioral issues when notice is given by current placement. The individual must present a frequent and/or high intensity pattern of behavior (i.e. aggression, elopement, property destruction, and self-injury) for placement with the crisis home.
