Services offered at the crisis center
ERS team—a team of trained responders that will come to the aid of a person in crisis and talk to them and decide if they need to go to the hospital or if they just need a few days at the Living Room in the crisis center for a rest and possible medication change.
Living Room—this is an area in the crisis center that offers an up to three day stay for those in crisis. They have couches for everyone to sleep on during your stay. They offer you a shower, hot meals and are a peer center so that the people you talk to have been in a crisis before themselves and now help others in crisis. There is a counselor, social worker and a psychiatrist on the site to come to your aid as well.
Medical Detox—do you need help with a drug or alcohol problem? The medical detox area will take you in and help you get through the detox before you are moved to a rehabilitation center. You will be talking to a counselor, social worker and a psychiatrist while in the medical detox.
These services are available to anyone in a crisis. If the center cannot help you, they will find a place to help you. No one is turned away from the center without them finding you the place you need to be to get you the right kind of help. You can walk in or call for the ERS team if you need someone to talk to right away. The operators are trained to take your call and get you to the right person that you need to talk to during your crisis.
