Franklin County Mental Health
and Addiction Crisis Center
Creating a Full Continuum of Crisis Care
The Alcohol, Drug and Mental Health Board of Franklin County (ADAMH) is partnering with community stakeholders to address the continuum of crisis care in our community. The cornerstone of this continuum is the development of a new crisis center that will be the central and preferred destination in Franklin County for mental health and addiction crisis needs.
The crisis center will provide a safe and secure location offering a full array of services with integrated peer support at all levels. Most importantly, the crisis center will offer a no-wrong-door approach to ensure any adult arriving at the crisis center receives services. This new resource is intended to benefit everyone from individuals in crisis and their families to the overcrowded hospitals and first responders currently stretched to their limits.
