Grant Awarded for Crisis Unit, Treatment Facility

A state grant of more than $2.6 million will enable the county’s Department of Alcohol, Drug and Mental Health Services (ADMHS) to purchase or fix up a South County building to serve as a crisis stabilization unit and residential treatment facility, as well as mostly cover the costs for one year of a mobile crisis-response team in Lompoc. The main goals of the grant, titled SB 82, are to decrease unnecessary hospitalizations, emergency room admissions, and recidivism overall. The funding is good through July 2015.
