Adult Crisis Stabilization Program

The Adult Intensive Management/Crisis Stabilization Program serves men and women ages 18 and up who are experiencing acute psychiatric disorders that may include severe psychosis or depression, intrusive behaviors, and/or extreme thoughts of suicide or harm to others. Patients who are experiencing difficulty with daily activities or an acute episode of a recurrent condition may be candidates for this treatment program.

Patients in the crisis stabilization program receive intensive psychiatric management. The goal of treatment is to help the patient achieve stabilization as rapidly as possible. Once this stage is reached, further treatment can be provided to meet the patient's ongoing mental, emotional, and physical needs. Continuing treatment may include individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy, and/or educational sessions based on the patient's unique needs.

A professional and compassionate team of psychiatrists, mental health clinicians, and other medical personnel work together with activity therapists and case managers to provide supportive, comprehensive care for individuals suffering from psychosis, thoughts of suicide, or similar symptoms.  The adult intensive management program offers specialized, 24-hour treatment for suicide prevention and urgent psychiatric disorders.
