This program provides short term, voluntary residential service, as an alternative to hospitalization for consumers experiencing a mental health crisis and who require supports beyond those resources available within the community. The licensed 15 bed program serves adults (ages 18-59) throughout the county as an alternative to hospitalization for individuals presenting with sub-acute psychiatric symptoms and possible co-occurring disorders in the least restrictive environment possible, leading to a reduction in involuntary hospitalizations, incarcerations and homelessness. The program provides short-term intensive, culturally appropriate, recovery based and individualized services to ensure stabilization and transition back into the community with appropriate community supports. Clients are referred by treatment providers (i.e. VCBH clinics) or Psychiatric In-patient Facilities. This program is contracted to Anka Behavioral Health Inc.
