About the Program:


Referrals are made primarily through local hospital emergency departments, but may also be made from community providers and designated mental health professionals.

16 beds

Clients admitted into the E&T will be adults aged 18 and older who are diagnosed with a severe mental illness. Each referral will be screened for medical care needs, safety, and security to ensure appropriate admission to the E&T.

Open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week

We believe recovery starts from within, and that our job is to do whatever it takes to provide the support you need on the journey to recovery in a comfortable, structured environment. Our 16-bed facility includes wraparound support from a multidisciplinary staff who constantly engage with members to maintain a safe environment.

Our services emphasize choice-making skills and harm-reduction techniques. Our intent is to ensure that you receive immediate assistance and compassionate support to stabilize symptoms, appropriate treatment, and a successful referral to community-based resources. Upon arrival, a diverse clinical team will conduct an individualized assessment and work with you every step of the way to support your goals in life.
