After Hours Care
Our clients' needs are not always capable of being treated during normal business hours. If a situation arises that poses a threat to the safety of our client, such as active suicidal ideation, we request that the client calls 911 or reports to the nearest Emergency Room for the best possible care.
After normal business hours we are unable to answer voicemails left by clients until the next business day that our staff are in the office. Therefore, in addition to referring these after-hours callers to utilize 911 services or the emergency room, we provide our clients with the following information about 24/7 local and national crisis hotlines for mental health:
