Adult Emergency Services
Emergency assessments can be performed for adults 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Services include crisis intervention, diagnostic assessment, referral and linkage to mental health and addiction recovery services. Intake specialists will determine the urgency of the situation; assess the vulnerability and/or dangerousness of the person in crisis. Referrals for treatment may be made to Rescue’s Adult Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU), hospitals, outpatient mental health care services, substance abuse facilities, and/or case management may be provided for linkage to community resources.
Adult Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU)
Adults 18 years of age and above who can benefit from crisis stabilization may be admitted to the CSU, which is a voluntary residential treatment program designed as an alternative to inpatient care. We provide a safe and secure unit for those who are at risk of hurting themselves or others. Adults benefit from an individualized care plan which includes individual and group counseling, mental health assessment, pharmacological management, psychiatric evaluations, medication monitoring and education, and nursing services. The primary focus is stabilization and reintegration with community support systems.
Outreach Services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. Outreach is designed to assure treatment in the least restrictive environment for those who are vulnerable or have specialized transportation needs. Emergency assessments may be conducted in the field where the client is located. This may be the client’s residence, shelters, hospital emergency rooms, correctional facilities and other social service or health care agencies
