CRISIS STABILIZATION UNIT (CSU)
The Crisis Stabilization Unit is for people in crisis who need more intensive psychiatric treatment and observation. It is a 16 bed, licensed unit on the second floor of the NPC. Trained medical personnel including a psychiatrist, nurses, and clinical social workers work at the CSU.
Consumers are here voluntarily. They stay here for 3 to 5 days. After that time, staff help them find other places in the community for help.
Referrals to CSU generally come from the PES or other outside hospitals or therapists.
Visiting hours for CSU are Monday – Friday, 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. and Saturday – Sunday, 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
To contact someone admitted at the CSU, call 713-970-7070 with the person’s CSU ID number. This number is also required to get information from CSU staff.
