Crisis Residential Unit
A safe place for people in psychiatric crisis
Homeward Bound’s Crisis Residential Unit provides a short-term alternative to inpatient psychiatric hospitalization for people agreeing to participate in a recovery-oriented treatment environment focused on wellness.
The Crisis Residential Unit is a voluntary and interactive program for adults ages 18 and older who may be experiencing a mental health crisis or who may be chronically mentally ill and not improving on their own. It also serves as a step-down unit from locked psychiatric units to a lower level of care in the community.
Any person in a mental health crisis will have the opportunity to be assessed for admission into the facility.
