Crisis Wellness Center Ribbon Cutting Announcement
Lifeline Connections is pleased to announce the opening of the Crisis Wellness Center’s Triage & Stabilization
Program ribbon cutting ceremony is set for August 4th, 2020. Patients will begin admitting August 5th, pending license approval.
The Crisis Triage & Stabilization Program is located at 5197 NW Lower River Road, Bldg #1, Vancouver, WA 98660. A brief ribbon cutting ceremony will be held shortly after 2:00pm and broadcast via Facebook Live. To be in compliance with Governor Inslee’s COVID-19 regulations only Lifeline Connections Crisis Wellness Center Staff will be onsite for the ribbon cutting ceremony.
This voluntary program will provide a safe and supportive alternative for diversion from hospital emergency departments or incarceration for individuals experiencing an acute behavioral health crisis. The triage component supports eight people for up to 23 hours while the stabilization component has 16 beds for a length of stay of between five and seven days. Our compassionate team of professionals provides one on one and group sessions, substance use disorder and mental health assessments, medication education, and connections to community resources for increased support and to promote continued stabilization.
This program seeks to provide a safe environment in a home like setting to relieve crisis symptoms, with 24/7 support provided. Our interdisciplinary team of medical professionals, peer support specialists, Substance Use Disorder Professionals (SUDPs), Mental Health Professionals (MHPs), and case managers are focused on working with patients to establish goals promoting stabilization. Components of this program are modeled off of The Living Room Model which highlights peer support specialists working collaboratively with patients to assist with symptom relief.
The focus of this program is to enhance quality of life, build resiliency to behavioral health crises, and restore and improve functioning. Lifeline Connections and this program strive to support successful integration back into the community.
Major funding for the new Crisis Triage and Stabilization Program was provided by WA State Department of Commerce, The Taxpayers of Washington State, Beacon Health Options, Molina Healthcare of WA, CHPW, AmeriGroup, United Healthcare, Coordinated Care, Clark County DCS and SW Community Foundation.
