About the Program: Telecare Pierce County E&T provides both voluntary and involuntary inpatient care for individuals who are experiencing an acute behavioral health crisis.

The program utilizes Telecare’s Recovery-Centered Clinical System (RCCS), an innovative recovery-based framework that incorporates the latest research and evidence-based practices. We believe that recovery starts from within, and that people are best equipped to begin a recovery journey when supported in a comfortable, structured environment that emphasizes choice-making skills and harm-reduction techniques.

Services are provided by a caring multidisciplinary team including nurses, social work/clinicians, a psychiatric medical provider, a chemical dependency professional, rehabilitation therapists, recovery specialists and peer recovery coaches. We offer 24-hour support, individualized assessments, collaborative treatment planning, assistance with symptom reduction, medication services, and discharge planning, all with the goal of preparing individuals to return to their communities with tools and resources that empower their recovery.
