CRISIS RESIDENTIAL UNIT (CRU)
The Crisis Residential Unit (CRU) is for people who are chronically and seriously ill. They frequently come seeking emergency services and are not improving on their own. People stay anywhere from 3 days to 4 weeks. The average amount of time people are in the CRU is 10 to 14 days.
The client must not have insurance, must live in Harris County, be voluntary and must be 18 or older. There are 18 beds at this facility.
Referrals may be made from the community. Referrals can be made to the CRU without a recommendation by an MD or other healthcare personnel.
