UNC Health Care at WakeBrook – Facility-Based Crisis Unit
The UNC Health Care at WakeBrook Facility-Based Crisis Unit is a residential treatment facility providing services for Wake County residents who have a mental illness, developmental disability and/or substance use disorder. We provide care and treatment in a non-hospital setting for individuals in crisis who need sort-term evaluation, treatment and/or stabilization. All services are provided by professionally trained licensed medical and clinical staff.
What We Do
Our program is designed for adults residing in Wake County, and provides for psychiatric stabilization, including detoxification if individuals have a co-occurring psychotic disorder. Under the direction of a psychiatrist, we provide this service by performing medical assessments and monitoring; psychiatric assessments and evaluation; individual, family, and group therapeutic services; physical and leisure activities; and aftercare arrangements to help decrease the risk of relapse. Our interventions are designed to stabilize the current crisis and teach the patient skills to avoid future crises.
We are designed as an alternative to hospitalization for individuals in crisis. Our goal is to provide competent and beneficial residential treatment services that will avoid or reduce the need for inpatient psychiatric hospitalization or emergency department evaluations.
Please call 984-974-4800 for more information.
Services are provided with respect and without regard for race, color, gender, national origin, age, religion, creed, disability, veteran’s status, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression, insurance coverage, or income.
