CALM Center

Crisis to CALM

The CALM Center is a safe and caring place for youth ages 10-17 to receive immediate support, assessment and stabilization for an emotional, behavioral or substance abuse crisis any time of day or night. Care is provided regardless of ability to pay, and a referral is not necessary.

A board and ASAM certified psychiatrist along with licensed nurses, therapists and life skills coaches work as a team with youth and their families to identify what is causing the crisis and to create a plan for change.

The CALM Center fills the gap between outpatient and inpatient care for kids in crisis. Crisis situations that often lead to admissions include suicidal thoughts, defiant behaviors at school and home and dangerous behaviors.

CALM Center clients see a strong decrease in depression (45%) and anxiety (53%) during their one-week stay.

Three Major Goals:

A pause: Provide children a safe environment to be less impacted by community or family stress, to be exposed to and potentially integrate new coping skills, and to talk to experienced staff;

A perspective: Clinical feedback and perceptions from experienced team members, physicians, nurses, and therapists regarding client’s mental health, diagnoses, and future needs;

 A plan: Assistance in connecting the parent/guardian with the next step in treatment.

Call 918 394.2256 anytime of day or night to access care.

The CALM Center provides:

  • Medically supervised detox
  • Medication review, oversight
  • At least one visit with psychiatrist and therapist
  • Two group sessions daily
  • Family therapy session
  • Plan for continued care after leaving
