Comprehensive Crisis Services
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 through our Mobile Crisis Response and Community Stabilization programs.
Mobile Crisis Response
Mobile Crisis Response is an immediate response service provided up to 8 hours over a 72 hour period. Individuals receiving this service are experiencing an active mental health crisis placing them at risk of hospitalization. Individuals receive services in his or her environment such as home, work, or the community.
Community stabilization provides continued stabilization to individuals transitioning from a high level of care (i.e. hospitalization or residential placement) to a long term support services (i.e mental health skills building, substance use services, etc.). This service is provided within the community and allows for individuals to have continued support during his or her transitional stage. Services can range from 1 to 7 days, hours are based on clinical necessity.
