Acute Care

To address the acute mental health needs of adults, Saint Clare’s provides:

Adult Crisis Intervention Services (ACIS)
Adult Crisis Intervention Services is a voluntary, inpatient unit that provides behavioral health services to individuals in a crisis who are in need of inpatient hospitalization. Our services are delivered through a multi-disciplinary team – including a psychiatrist, social workers, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and behavioral health counselors – and include a variety of treatments such as group therapy, individual counseling, special activities and leisure counseling. The team’s goal is to assist individuals in developing coping skills to manage life crises and maintain wellness and recovery.
