Available for adults and children who find themselves in need of immediate assistance, the toll-free emergency Help Line operates 24 hours, seven days a week. This service will immediately place the caller in contact with a professional who can provide counseling by phone or arrange for a face-to-face consultation. The Help Line also connects callers with all Pathways services.
Services include brief residential care (up to 14 days) in a therapeutic milieu, thorough assessment of the crisis, individualized intensive therapeutic interventions, medication support, bi-directional referral arrangements with the Pathways Decriminalization and 23-1/2 hour hospital-based observation services, and aftercare referral. The goal is to demonstrate that crisis stabilization services are efficient and effective alternatives to inpatient hospital care. Crisis stabilization is available for adults and for children ages 6-17 with emotional needs in the Pathways region who are at risk for out-of-home placement or hospitalization, or who need “step-down” from hospitalization.
