In the event of a psychiatric emergency, Atlantic Behavioral Health offers crisis intervention services, including a 24-hour hotline, risk assessments and screenings, and community trauma assistance.
24-Hour Crisis Hotline
Our professional crisis therapists provide round-the-clock, confidential support and treatment for those in a mental health or substance abuse emergency. Following an initial assessment and crisis stabilization session, patients are referred to the appropriate level of care.
