·        This is a voluntary service hosted by Peninsula Behavioral Health for people who have come “undone” and are given a bed to recuperate. 

·        Drug use prohibited, smoking is allowed in allotted breaks.

·        Medicaid.

·        Ask for Crisis Response Services at the front desk.  Free but for Clallam County residents only.

There is no “program” -  this is not a treatment program although there is a therapist who makes rounds in the morning to talk.  Clients are evaluated under some circumstances.  Some people in the center are detained under the Involuntary Treatment Act for 72hours.  If deemed a risk to the public or themselves police may be called.  Meals and snacks provided.  An agreement is signed to stay.
