Child/Adolescent Crisis Stabilization Unit (CCSU)
The Crisis Stabilization program provides a safe, therapeutic environment for medically stable children and adolescents who require 24-hour nursing care and supervision due to a mental health crisis. While on the unit, the primary goal is to stabilize the crisis through psychiatric interventions by a psychiatrist and/or advanced registered nurse practitioner (ARNP). Nurses and certified behavioral health technicians provide close observation and structured unit activities, including psycho-educational groups and skills trainings.
Planning for discharge begins at admission so that as soon as the psychiatric crisis is stabilized the youth can return to their home in the community. If the child/adolescent does not have a home or cannot return to the residence from which they came, the program makes a focused effort to find a suitable residence. Schoolwork obtained from the youth’s school as necessary so that the youth keep up with their curriculum. Family/guardian involvement is required.
24 hours per day, seven days per week.
