Crisis Stabilization Unit

Crisis Stabilization Unit

The goal of our program is to prevent unnecessary hospitalizations for individuals who are experiencing a crisis due to either a psychiatric or substance abuse related condition.

If you require stabilization to return to your pre-crisis level of functioning, and can benefit from a short-term, person oriented, intensive service provided in a therapeutic setting, let us help. Our program is a 10-bed voluntary program that provides daily psychiatric evaluation, medication evaluation/administration, 24-hour nursing services, individual counseling and group counseling, family intervention, and referral for follow-up services.

Following your crisis, we can provide linkage with internal and external resources, including care coordination to help assist you in making a smooth transition on your return to the community and provide you with the support necessary to maintain your recovery and continued stability.

For your continued recovery, referrals to various specialized counseling groups are available following discharge.

Crisis Stabilization Services are provided by Southern Highlands Community Mental Health Center, 200 12th Street Extension, Princeton, WV. Referrals are welcome anytime. All Services are covered by WV Medicaid. If you have questions or would like more information, please call (304) 425-9541 ext. 1280. Referrals can be made by calling (304) 431-2869.

We want to help you.

Southern Highlands is excited to announce that effective Friday June 23,2017 we will be utilizing an automated call/ text service to remind consumers of your upcoming appointments. You will receive a call or text three days prior to your appointment and another reminder one day before your scheduled appointment. The service will provide prompts if you need to cancel or re-schedule your appointment. The first time receiving a text message you will be prompted to opt in authorizing text reminders. Please make sure the front desk or your case manager has your correct phone number.
