When your loved one is staying on the Crisis Stabilization Unit, they will have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of therapeutic programming. Through our breadth of offerings, we work to help individuals get through their current crisis and return to a less-intensive level of care.

We utilize cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), as well as a dialectical behavior therapy-informed approach in a lot of our programming.

Types of Treatment

During their stay, individuals can expect to receive:

  • Daily medication management and meetings with a psychiatrist

  • Intensive, daily therapeutic programming

  • Psychoeducational groups on a variety of topics such as:

    • Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT)

    • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)

    • Smoking cessation

    • Coping skills and strategies

    • Nutrition education

    • Healthy relationships

    • Stress management

    • Medication education

Beyond caring for mental and physical health, we ensure that any religious needs an individual has are met; we find that many people in our care crave a spiritual connection. We have a dedicated spiritual services coordinator on the team who visits the unit multiple times per week, and can arrange visits from spiritual and religious leaders.

In addition, we have a unique sensory room on our unit where patients can take a break from group programming whenever they need it. It holds an exercise bike, a television, a DVD player, books, and more.

Length of Stay

The average length of stay on our unit is ten days; some individuals need less time to stabilize and return home, and some may need more time. Each course of treatment is highly individualized to the patient so we can ensure they are receiving exactly the kind of care that they need to begin healing while simultaneously staying as safe as possible. Each patient will receive a master treatment plan within five days of admission.
