The Clark County Telecare Evaluation and Treatment Center (CCT) will be a 12-bed facility, providing both voluntary and involuntary inpatient evaluation and treatment to individuals who are experiencing acute psychiatric distress. These individuals may also need acute detoxification from substances.
The program's goal is to support people in stabilizing their symptoms so that they may quickly return home to the community. Most people will stay at CCT between 3-7 days.
Services will be delivered by a multidisciplinary, culturally-competent staff and will include a broad array of medical, mental health and recovery-centered supports:
- Risk-focused assessments, covering mental health and substance abuse
- Psychiatric assessment and treatment
- Medication administration and management
- Medically monitored detoxification
- Family and support system engagement
- Peer support and community group meetings
- Social and recreational activities
- And individualized treatment plans, which also focus on the process of awakening hope and enlivening the recovery journey. The goal of this program is to provide a recovery-oriented, trauma-informed learning environment that promotes independence, self-responsibility and self-determination.
Based in Alameda, California, Telecare specializes in providing services and supports for individuals with serious mental illness and has over 2,200 employees and more than 60 programs in California, Texas, Nebraska, Oregon, North Carolina and Washington.
