The Center recently received funding from the Department of State Health Services to establish a new Crisis Treatment Center (CTC). The CTC is located at 301 Londonderry in Waco on the campus of DePaul Center and is a collaborative effort with Providence Health Network. In addition to the Crisis Triage Unit, in which the individual is assessed and their level of need is determined, there are three distinct programs operating at the CTC.
The programs are an Extended Observation Unit that allows law enforcement to bring a person experiencing a behavioral health crisis to the facility and leave them for up to 48 hours involuntarily to receive assessment and treatment services; a Crisis Residential Unit for individuals who need intensive residential services on a voluntary basis; and an Intensive Outpatient Program for individuals who may receive up to three hours of treatment per day and then go home at night.
