Crisis intervention services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, providing help for individuals who may call about a chemical dependency problem. Individuals may call for themselves, a friend, or a family member.
Trained staff will help the individual explore options that are available, give suggestions on intervention, and explain treatment alternatives. If an individual is intoxicated, they will be encouraged to come to Riverside for detoxification. A course of treatment and a rehabilitation plan will be determined after this time.
Individuals may also be referred to Riverside on a crisis basis if a patient comes to the Emergency Room and is highly intoxicated or under the influence.
For more information, call Riverside at (309) 779-3000.
