RHA Mobile Crisis Management Services (MCM)

If you are experiencing an acute mental health or substance use/addiction crisis and cannot come to the C3356 Center for immediate stabilization and treatment, you can call our 24/7 Mobile Crisis Team at 1-888-573-1006. If needed, the experienced clinical professionals on our MCM team can come to your location for safe on-site crisis stabilization and support.

How Can Mobile Crisis Services Help Me?

When you call our MCM Team, a qualified team member will speak with you on the phone to learn more about your situation and your crisis needs. If having an MCM Team member come to meet you at your home or another safe location is the best response for your situation, an MCM Team member will be dispatched to meet you.

Because the team covers a large geographic area, time is required to get to you. The wait for the team member could be as short as 30 minutes or as long as 2 hours. Every attempt will be made to reach you as soon as possible and our MCM Team will stay in touch with you during this time. Our MCM Team will support you in creating a safety plan, identifying your resources and becoming stable. They will assist you in identifying your next steps, including an appointment for further assessment, recovery planning and treatment. If you are not able to become stable at home or in your community, our MCM Team will offer to assist you in coming to C3356 to utilize our Behavioral Health Urgent Care services.

Please Note: If you have a serious medical concern, the MCM Team will support you in calling 9-1-1 for emergency medical services and possible referral to a hospital emergency department.

Behavioral Health Urgent Care (BHUC)

Crisis services are available 24/7 at C3356 Behavioral Health Urgent Care.
You can come to the C3356 Lower Level Entrance anytime, any day of the week, without an appointment to talk to someone and receive support. Behavioral Health Urgent Care staff will greet you and listen as you share information about your current situation and needs. Then, you will learn about options for treatment, support and resources.

What Should I Expect When I Arrive at BHUC?
If your situation is a crisis or emergency, you will participate in a crisis assessment in a safe area with comfortable furniture and staff who can support you. Nursing staff will provide a brief evaluation of your physical condition, including checking your heart, lungs, and your neurological status, as well as checking your blood alcohol level. If you are experiencing any medical condition that requires immediate treatment, the staff will assist in referring you to the Mission Health Emergency Department.

Based on the results of your screening and evaluation, our staff may recommend that you stay for a brief while (up to 24 hrs.) in our Behavioral Health Urgent Care Observation Unit (OU) for further crisis risk assessment and a more in-depth review of your health history. The OU is designed to provide a safe and calming space where we can monitor your vitals, assess your level of need and begin care coordination and disposition planning.

When you feel more stable, BHUC staff members can help you a discharge plan as you leave the urgent care to stay safe at home or with family/friends, and return for follow-up crisis or outpatient services the next day. If you continue to be in crisis for most of a 24 hour period, you may go to our Facility-Based Crisis & Detox program, the Neil Dobbins Center, located on the Lower Level of C3356, the same floor as BHUC, where you will have a secure and comfortable place to stay while you continue to participate in assessment and treatment.

Facility-Based Crisis & Substance Use Detox Services (The Neil Dobbins Center)
If you need to stay in a safe place for more than 24 hours (up to several days) in order to become stable enough to return home, you may be admitted to the Neil Dobbins Center, our Facility-Based Crisis and Substance Use Detox program, located within C3356 on the Lower Level. The Neil Dobbins Center (NDC) provides ongoing assessment while you spend time individually and in groups with clinicians and Peer Support Specialists to identify your strengths and your individual support and treatment needs, as well as make a plan for your recovery. You will see a doctor who will work with you and the other members of your treatment team.

This program provides your meals, your medications, and a safe and comfortable bedroom and “scrubs” to wear during your stay. While a friend or family member may bring you to this program, they will not remain with you during your stay, and you should not bring personal items or extra clothing with you. Any items you bring will be stored for you while you remain at the NDC. The Neil Dobbins Center is unable to provide space and care for pets and animal companions other than service dogs. However, staff can assist with recommendations for pet care while you are away from home.

An important part of the planning process is preparation for your return home and/or arranging for further treatment as you continue on your path towards recovery. You will work with our support team to create a safety plan and an ongoing recovery plan, including options for your health care and treatment, and connections with community resources. Some individuals may need a higher level of care after being at the Neil Dobbins Center and will be referred to inpatient services or other appropriate treatment settings. If this is your need, you will be at the center of the related planning.

The Neil Dobbins Center provides treatment for individuals who voluntarily seek treatment and for those who are involuntarily committed to treatment. If you have been involuntarily committed to treatment, you may be transported to C3356 by a law enforcement officer.
