Crisis Center - ADAMH Board of Franklin County

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 center will offer a no wrong door philosophy to ensure anyone who arrives at the 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.
