Child Crisis and Stabilization Unit (CCSU)
The Children’s Crisis Unit is a 12-bed, 24-hour alternative to inpatient psychiatric hospitalization. It is a non-medical unit with the goal of helping youth ages 4 to 18 return to pre-crisis level of functioning. Youth admitted to the unit receive a combination of individual therapy, family and group therapy, nursing services, and psychiatric evaluations with medication management follow-up.
Adult Crisis Stabilization Unit
Behavioral Health Emergencies don’t always happen between 9 and 5. When immediate attention is needed, the Adult Crisis Stabilization Unit (ACSU) is a 24-hour alternative to hospitalization. Our staff is available to assist behavioral health consumers through a time of crisis and help them return to their normal routine. Our treatment team focuses on linking the consumer with community resources and returning them to their home as quickly as possible.

Adolescent Recovery Center (ARC)
Residential treatment utilizing the evidence-based treatment models of A-CRA (Adolescent Community Reinforcement Approach) and The 7 Challenges, two highly-structured programs for the treatment of substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders through individual, group and family therapy.
Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities Crisis Services
As a regional CMHC, Communicare has access to funding specifically allocated to assist with DID residents who may be experiencing a Crisis. This funding is limited, and access is contingent upon specific demographic criteria and the presence of a DID diagnosis. Individuals who do not have a suspected or documented DID diagnosis, or those who are currently in an SCL residential service do not qualify for these crisis funds. Crisis services and funding are a finite support, typically covering 5-7 days of an individual’s health, safety and welfare needs.
We understand that the crisis experience is different and unique for everyone and every situation. We are here to help. You will be immediately directed to a crisis responder 24/7 by utilizing either the Access Center or the DID Crisis Line phone numbers. At that point, we will identify the individual in need, get current contact information and discuss the nature of the crisis. While some situations can be solved via a telephone call, there are other scenarios that may require on site assistance or further follow-up. Whatever the need, Communicare has compassionate and experienced employees who will assist you or your loved one in coping with their crisis.
