In 2023, we opened seven Crisis Residential Treatment Programs across four campuses in Los Angeles County. We are preparing to open two more of these 24/7 programs in early 2024. These new 16-bed facilities, developed by the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health, are designed for adults dealing with mental health challenges or a recent crisis who need intensive treatment. Los Angeles County has selected our organization to operate nine facilities across four sites, for a total of 144 patient beds that will serve 2,500 clients per year.
The 24/7 programs are an alternative to urgent care or hospitalization. Individuals live on-site in a homelike setting for a short term while they receive counseling and learn basic living and interpersonal skills. They receive physical and psychological evaluation, mental health and case management services, in addition to assistance locating permanent housing. They are given supportive services to remain stable and successfully transition back to community living.
