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.

15 beds

Residents of Thurston or Mason County, ages 18 and older who have a chronic or serious mental illness disorder and who are experiencing an acute crisis (this is determined through an assessment process with one of our contracted providers).

Open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Visiting hours are 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. daily.

We believe recovery starts from within, and that our job is to do whatever it takes to provide the support needed on the journey to recovery in a comfortable, structured environment. Our secure 15-bed facility includes services provided by professional and paraprofessional staff in accordance with licensing and certification requirements.

Upon arrival, a diverse clinical team will conduct an individualized assessment and work with each individual every step of the way to support their goals in life. Our services emphasize choice-making skills and harm-reduction techniques. We provide a safe, respectful environment where individuals can receive immediate, individualized assistance and a compassionate presence to stabilize symptoms, avoid the need for higher levels of care, and receive appropriate referrals to community-based resources.
