Toledo, OH – Family Service of Northwest Ohio, Four County Board of Alcohol, Drug Addiction, and Mental Health Services, and Poggemeyer Design Group celebrated the completion of the new Adult Crisis Stabilization Unit with a ribbon cutting ceremony and open house. The event took place on Friday, January 13th at Comprehensive Crisis Care located at 600 Freedom Drive, Napoleon, OH. Those attending were Les McCaslin-CEO of Four County Board of Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services, Robert McColley-Ohio State Representative, and Doug Bailey- Community Capital Manager, Ohio Department of Mental Health & Addiction Services.
The addition of the 10-bed Adult CSU is an important part of the mental health system in the Four County area; it augments the continuum of care and allows for the client to receive treatment in their own community with family involvement. The unit will operate 24-hours a day/7 days a week/365 days per year, serving adults 18 and over, with crisis stabilization, ambulatory detox, behavioral health assessment and treatment planning and psychiatric services and group and individual counseling. Without this new addition, the nearest access to treatment was over 65 miles away.
“The Open House was a success. Many came to tour the facility to learn more about our services. The services provided by the Adult CSU will have a huge impact on our community. Adults who need the support of crisis stabilization will be able to receive these services closer to home” said Kathy Helmke, Director of Four County Family Center and Comprehensive Crisis Care.
