The voluntary Kitsap County Crisis Triage Center provides short term stabilization and crisis services (up to 5 days) to adults experiencing a psychosocial crisis such as a mental health issue, eviction, domestic violence, substance use, homelessness, and more.
Seeking to provide a voluntary alternative to hospitalization or arrest, the Crisis Triage Center offers a safe, supportive setting where adults dealing with mental illness or substance use disorders can stabilize.
Multi-disciplinary teams of Peer Counselors, Treatment Aides, Mental Health Professionals and Recovery Case Managers work together to address each individual’s needs. Staff support the client in developing a collaborative plan to navigate the crisis. This often includes setting up services such as mental health, physical health, substance use, and other supportive resources. Each plan is unique to the individual’s crisis.
Crisis Triage services are accessible by referrals directly from local emergency rooms, local law enforcement and jail services, Kitsap Recovery Center Detox, and Designated Mobile Crisis Responders. Community members can call the Volunteers of America Crisis Call Line at (1-888-910-0416) where professional staff are positioned to offer assistance to ensure that the help offered is appropriate for the crisis that someone is experiencing. This may include referral to the Crisis Triage Facility.
