Evaluation and Treatment Services

Evaluation and Treatment (E&T) facilities provide assessment, observation, and crisis treatment services 24/7 to individuals who are 18 and older regardless of financial status.

  • Psychiatric and nursing assessments
  • Medical and SUD evaluations with follow-up as needed
  • Crisis intervention
  • Medication management
  • Psychotherapy
  • Individual education including assistance with life skills and understanding medication effects
  • Wellness care including nursing care, peer support, nutrition, outdoor courtyards, exercise, and therapy dog visits
