Stabilization Services

FBH’s Stabilization unit is a 16-bed inpatient treatment facility that provides short-term (generally up to three days) stabilization triage services on a voluntary basis to individuals 18 or older who are experiencing a mental health crisis. The goal of the program is to assist individuals in resolving their crisis, decrease symptoms and make appropriate community linkages for ongoing services, as appropriate, as well as to avoid more restrictive and costly levels of care such as hospitalization.

Services include:

  • Health screening and nursing assessment
  • Short-term life skills training
  • Discharge planning including referrals and linkage to other resources in the community
  • If appropriate, psychiatric assessment and medication management services
