RVC Crisis Respite

Recovery Village Center – Crisis Respite is a 5-bed program that serves adults with a mental health diagnosis, who are having thoughts of harming themselves, harming others or the inability to provide for their basic needs due to their mental health diagnosis. This program is a voluntary, short term stabilization center that can assist individuals with medication management, emotional regulation, coordination of care and continued support to work with family and other supports to assist with a safe transition back into the community.

 

Each individual has their own private room during their stay. Individuals can socialize, watch TV, play games, do art work or read in a common area. Residents are also encouraged to participate in staff led skills/support groups offered throughout the day.

 

While at Recovery Village Center, individuals meet with a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner each day and mental health providers that offer support, counseling and skill building.

 

Individuals who are admitted into Recovery Village Center are screened and evaluated by NDN crisis staff for appropriate placement and pre-authorization for payment by their insurance provider (most Medicaid plans cover this type of stay). Medicare and other 3rd party providers do not typically cover this type of stay, therefore, payment agreements need to be made between NDN and the individual or their family prior to admittance.

 

The length of stay for an individual cannot exceed 30 days. Individuals are continually re-evaluated for medical necessity and new authorization is obtained on a weekly basis. A typical length of stay ranges between 3 to 7 days.
