Help in a Crisis
If you are a current client and have needs that can’t wait until your scheduled appointment, please call or text us at (336) 722-7266 and we will try to find a better solution for you. We keep urgent times reserved each week for people in crisis, and have an after-hours emergency line staffed 24/7 by a clinician at (336) 525-9090.
Although most crises are short-term, the anxiety they create can push people towards impulsive solutions. Those often back-fire, as it usually takes time to develop a good plan for a crisis. We also offer dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) which is designed to help people build crisis survival skills.
In Home Emergency Assessment
If you or your relative needs in-home assessment for a psychiatric emergency, your county mental health center may be able to send a treatment team to assess the situation. This is usually a better option than the police. In Forsyth County, call (888) 581-9988 or (336) 607-8523 Ext: 147 For other counties a full list is available here.
Partial Hospital and Day Programs
These programs offer group and individual therapy 3-5 days a week. They are a good option if you do not need overnight (hospital) services but are having significant problems with everyday living, such as getting to work or getting out of bed.
Passadenia is between Winston and Greensboro and aims to provide care through a therapeutic, healing environment. They offer free screening by Zoom or in person Mon-Fri 8am to 5 pm. They offer overnight hospital services in Tennessee.

HopeWay offers day programs as well as overnight hospital treatment. They are unique in that they provide longer term, therapeutic treatment in a hospital setting while still accepting insurance (most places that do that are private pay only). They take an integrative approach, bringing nutrition, nature, music, art, spiritual and pet therapy into their programs.
Overnight Hospital Programs
Local hospitals offer 24/7 assessments, and it’s not always in the busy emergency room. Several of these centers will assess you in a calmer setting that is more like a private office, such as Old Vineyard, Novant, and Moses Cone. These assessments may lead to hospital admission or to a daily group program, which most hospitals also offer.
