Short-Term Crisis Stabilization Beds

Short-term crisis residential stabilization services include a range of community-based resources that can meet the needs of an individual with an acute psychiatric crisis and provide a safe environment for care and recovery. Core attributes of residential crisis services include providing housing during a crisis with services that are short term, serving individuals or small groups of clients, and are used to avoid hospitalization (Stroul, 1988).
