Crisis Stabilization is a short-term crisis-resolution program that provides quick- access crisis services for families with adolescents (12-17 years) who are experiencing serious mental health and family system difficulties.
The adolescent resides within the program that is staffed 24-hours a day, while families are involved in daily treatment. The program provides respite, daily mediated family visits, parental skill-building, and family/systemic solution-focused treatment for families presenting to Wood’s Homes Community Resources Crisis Service and Alberta Health Services’ acute mental health programs (Emergency Department of Child and Adolescent Addiction and Mental Health CAAMHP).
