Crisis Services

Acute Care Unit

Our Acute Treatment Unit (ATU) is a 16 bed treatment facility for adults in need of an inpatient stay due to a psychiatric or mental health crisis.  Bridge House offers a residential level of care to adults experiencing a complex behavioral health crisis.  It is a higher level of care than a Crisis Stabilization Unit, yet not as intense as an inpatient hospital.

The ATU is a safe place for individuals who are experiencing suicidal risk or an inability to function due to a psychiatric emergency.  The clinical and nursing team use an evidence-based approach called Illness Management and Recovery to help clients develop personal strategies for coping with mental illness and moving forward with their life. Crisis mental health services include:

  • Psychiatric evaluation
  • Medication evaluation & management
  • Medications (as needed)
  • 24/7 Nursing care
  • Physical examination
  • Therapeutic groups
  • Skill based and recreational group activities
  • Counseling
  • Care Navigation
  • Peer support
  • Family meetings

The ATU has two single rooms for clients who identify as transgender who may prefer additional privacy or for individuals who would benefit from not having a roommate due to their psychiatric condition. ATU’s provide intensive and individualized services in a therapeutic, yet secure setting.  Treatment may be voluntary or involuntary.

Bridge House clients have access to books, magazines, movies, puzzles, art supplies, a shared iPad for podcasts and music, an elliptical, as well as X-Box games.
