A center that helps people with mental and substance abuse concerns is getting a new address.
Visitors Wednesday got a tour of the new facility on North Street. Starting on July 1, the new Crisis Center location will
be open to people 18.
The Crisis Care Center is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with a master's level therapist on hand and an EMT to do physical checks.
Randy Allen, the medical director for behavior management systems, says he expects 1,200 admissions this year, so it's the perfect time to move to a new location with more space and more privacy. "It's two to three times more than we had before," said Allen. "We're all happy about that because we used to have to do computer work and intake work right in the area where people were trying to relax."
Clients can stay at the Crisis Center for up to 24 hours.
