In 1993, we opened the first mental health crisis residence in Minnesota. Our Adult Residential Crisis Stabilization Services (RCS) integrate mental health, medical, and substance use care in an inpatient, 24-hour, supervised setting. These services help individuals who are experiencing a mental health crisis or emergency.
Three locations, Diane Ahrens Residence in St. Paul, Nancy Page Residence in Minneapolis, and Steiner Kelting Mental Wellness in Chaska, offer a hybrid model of crisis and Intensive Residential Treatment Services (IRTS) treatment that meets the community’s needs by offering short-term crisis stabilization services in the same setting. When appropriate, the individual will be able to move directly into IRTS, removing barriers and waiting for the next steps to be taken on a path toward recovery. Our treatment philosophy is to meet clients with the appropriate level of care in the least disruptive and restrictive way, reducing the trauma associated with recidivism.
For crisis availability at our three locations, call the Central Access Contact Center at 651-774-0011, M-F, from 7 am – 5 pm.
