(CSU)

The Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU) at Westbrook Health Services, part of our Crisis Division, provides essential support for individuals experiencing acute mental health crises, substance use issues, and co-occurring disorders. Our CSU offers short-term residential services designed to stabilize clients in a safe and supportive environment, ensuring they receive the care and intervention needed during critical times.


Acute Crisis Stabilization

Our CSU specializes in acute crisis stabilization, offering immediate support and intervention for individuals facing severe mental health challenges. Our highly trained staff is available around the clock to provide comprehensive care tailored to each client's unique needs. This includes:

Assessment and Evaluation: Our team conducts thorough assessments to understand the client's condition and develop an appropriate stabilization plan.


Crisis Intervention: We provide immediate intervention to de-escalate crises, manage symptoms, and reduce distress.


Therapeutic Support: Clients receive individual and group therapy to address underlying issues and develop coping strategies.

Detoxification Services

The CSU also offers detoxification services for individuals struggling with substance use disorders. Our detox program is designed to help clients safely withdraw from substances while managing withdrawal symptoms in a medically supervised setting. Key components of our detox services include:

Medical Supervision: Clients are closely monitored by medical professionals to ensure their safety and comfort during the detoxification process.


Medication Management: We use evidence-based medication protocols to alleviate withdrawal symptoms and support the detox process.


Supportive Care: Our team provides emotional and psychological support to help clients through this challenging phase.

Comprehensive Care for Co-Occurring Disorders

Many individuals seeking help at the CSU experience co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders. Our integrated approach to treatment addresses both conditions simultaneously, ensuring a holistic and effective path to stabilization and recovery. Services for co-occurring disorders include:

Integrated Treatment Plans: We develop personalized treatment plans that address both mental health and substance use issues.


Collaborative Care: Our multidisciplinary team works together to provide coordinated and comprehensive care. After stabilization, clients receive referrals to ongoing treatment programs and community resources to support long-term recovery.
