When an individual experiences a behavioral health crisis they may be at risk for severe instability and disruption in their daily functioning. This risk can be increased by several factors such as lack of natural support systems, isolation, or substance abuse disorder. Without therapeutic intervention the outcome of some behavioral health crisis can be increased risk for homelessness, psychiatric hospitalization, and law enforcement involvement. EPIC Health Partners is here to help with intensive outpatient community stabilization services for adults, children, and adolescents.
Our goal is to stabilize individuals experiencing acute crises in the community, where they reside and are comfortable. We provide support through evidence based interventions and care coordination for up to 28 hours per week – not to exceed eight hours per day per individual unless clinically necessary. Services can be provided consecutively for up to 7 days. During COVID-19 quarantine, telehealth services are also available.
To qualify for the Community Stabilization Program, the individual must be:
- Virginia Medicaid eligible;
- Experienced a recent behavioral health crisis (within 72 hours).
- Has difficulty maintaining interpersonal relationships resulting in isolation;
- Moderate to high intensity behavioral and/or emotional needs that without intervention, will further interfere with their ability to function in at least one category: family, living situation, school, social, work or community.
Referral sources for our Community 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).
