The Evaluation and Treatment Services Unit (ETS) provides emergency psychiatric evaluation and crisis stabilization to adults ages 18 and older on a 24-hour, 7-day per-week basis. Crisis stabilization includes crisis intervention, medication administration, consultation with significant others and outpatient providers, and linkage and/or referral to follow-up care and community resources. ETS provides telephonic psychiatric consultation for community emergency rooms and other county operated and contracted program staff requesting access to ETS or inpatient psychiatric services in the community. The goal of this service is to refer clients to the most appropriate non-hospital setting when indicated, and to authorize individuals to psychiatric inpatient units when the need for this level of care is present.
