The Stars Behavioral team has had a busy 2018 with several new facility grand openings across California. Below are details on each facility:

The Long Beach Behavioral Health Urgent Care Center (BHUCC, pronounced “Buck”) is a place where people with mental illness can go to be stabilized. It can be compared to an Urgent Care Center where people often go for a medical emergency instead of going to the hospital ER. The facility operates 24/7 to provide crisis stabilization for up to 12 adults and six adolescents. Clients can stay up to 24 hours. Designed to prevent psychiatric hospitalizations, the BHUCC will help clients to stabilize and will also provide referrals to other needed services. Transportation is provided as needed. The BHUCC will serve the greater Long Beach area. BHUCC details here.

In 2019, we are planning to open a 16-bed Crisis Residential Unit (CRU) in Merced that will serve residents from six central California counties which include: Merced, Calaveras, Mariposa, Madera, Tuolumne, and Stanislaus counties. The CRU is intended for adults ages 18 to 62 at risk of experiencing a crisis who are willing to actively participate in developing their own plans for recovery.
Our company motto of “Partnering with People for Positive Change” says it all. We work closely with individuals, families, other providers and our county partners to bring about change in people’s lives. We care deeply about the clients we serve, and that defines everything we do and aspire to be.
