When an acute crisis of a psychiatric nature that puts an individual with no support system at risk of psychiatric hospitalization, homelessness, an inability to care for one’s self, isolation from natural or community supports, or incarceration arises, EPIC Health Partners is there to help with intensive outpatient crisis stabilization services for adults, children, and adolescents.
Our goal is to stabilize individuals experiencing acute crises by staying with them in their home or by removing the individual to a temporary therapeutic setting until the crisis de-escalates. We provide 24/7 direct service and care coordination for up to 56 hours per week – not to exceed eight hours per day per individual unless clinically necessary, with services provided consecutively up to 15 days. We also offer an after-business hours crisis line at (434) 770-3055. During COVID-19 quarantine, telehealth services are also available.
To qualify for the Crisis Stabilization Program, the individual must be:
- Virginia Medicaid eligible;
- At a high risk for psychiatric hospitalization, homeless due to mental illness, or requires intervention by the mental health or criminal justice system due to inappropriate social behavior;
- Has difficulty maintaining interpersonal relationships resulting in isolation;
- Has difficulty managing activities of daily living (ADLs) to the degree that health and safety is jeopardized; or
- Has difficulty in cognitive functioning resulting in the inability to recognize personal danger.
Referral sources for our Crisis Stabilization program include: managed care organizations, community partners, self-referral, physicians’ offices, family, friends, other behavioral health agencies, schools, the Department of Social Services, foster care agencies, EPIC internal programs, and the Office of Children’s’ Services (CSA).
