Crisis Stabilization care provides stabilization and assessment services to youth experiencing a crisis, and in need of immediate placement. These adolescents are typically involved in the child welfare system, have few natural supports, and are without a place to live. They may experience significant behavioral health challenges that are not being effectively addressed in other levels of care.
Crisis Stabilization care provides children who may have been through exceptionally challenging circumstances, with the treatment and support they need. Often with few natural supports, youth-guided therapy encourages and gives these adolescents the confidence to advocate for themselves to help determine treatment and placement plans. Our residential campus in Matthews, NC is well-equipped to provide residential care while the adolescent is stabilized, treatment plans assessed, and long-term placements are solidified.
