Comprehensive Care with Dignity
The Catholic Charities Behavioral Health Center offers clients round-the-clock crisis care – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We’re here to help stabilize and treat in the most clinically appropriate and cost-effective settings, while also offering the least restrictive and traumatizing environment.
Patients are provided with an immediate screening and risk assessment for mental health, addictions and basic primary care needs. We offer easy access to care with reduced wait times, regardless of ability to pay or location of residence.
Our whole-health approach includes expanded coordination with other health care providers, social service providers and law enforcement. We are skilled in providing comprehensive access to a full range of medical and behavioral services, as well as targeted case management. We also remain deeply committed to working with the family members and friends of our patients, recognizing that their involvement is essential for recovery and long-term health.
