Crisis Intervention

Although most services we provide will follow a routine and be rendered in a timely fashion once you contact The Center, we understand that there are emergency situations when you need help immediately.

Program Goal:

Understanding that work is goal oriented, we are committed to a treatment philosophy that prepares individuals to take constructive action to help themselves. This preparation begins at the onset of services by assisting each individual to identify problems and potential solutions. As a part of that process, a therapeutic alliance is formed between the individual and the services provider to actively work on specific problems.

The Goal of Crisis Intervention is to provide or assist individuals in obtaining all the services necessary to stabilize a crisis situation. The Crisis Intervention Service functions as part of the Mental Health Center’s comprehensive service delivery system and is provided as a part of the Community Mental Health Board’s Emergency/Crisis Plan for the Columbiana County service district.

Crisis Intervention Services may be administered on a face-to-face or telephone basis. These services are provided to individuals experiencing extreme emotional distress, including behavior that could pose a danger to themselves or others. Services include emergency intervention, assessment and linkage to necessary inpatient or outpatient services.
