Description of Services Provided:
Crisis Stabilization Facilities are available to provide a least restrictive level of care in the community when a client is experiencing an acute psychiatric crisis, in imminent risk of psychiatric hospitalization, in need of medication adjustment, and/or in need of 24 hour supervision to maintain safety and avoid hospitalization. Client referrals must be at least 18 years of age and must receive prior authorization from the State of Montana AMDD or their utilization review contractor, First Health. It is the responsibility of the crisis stabilization staff to facilitate the prior authorization process. Referrals are usually made by a member of the clients treatment team and/or a mental health professional who recommends this level of care. Generally, admissions to crisis facilities are for clients who voluntarily agree to comply with admission criteria and to cooperate with treatment recommendations, however, select crisis facilities will have the ability to provide secure crisis beds for clients under emergency detention status.
