Faith Mission Alcohol Crisis Center
Faith Mission Alcohol Crisis Center is a 36 bed medically monitored withdrawal and stabilization service appropriate for men and women over the age of 18 who are intoxicated by alcohol and/or others substances, who are suffering from mild withdrawal coupled with situational crisis, or who are unable to abstain with the absence of past withdrawal complications. Faith Mission provides a humane and caring atmosphere that protects the dignity of each patient while they are safely and effectively withdrawn from alcohol and/or substances.
Faith Mission often serves as the initial step in the recovery and rehabilitation process in Argus Community’s continuum of care. The program is staffed by a comprehensive multidisciplinary team including, a Board Certified Medical Director, Licensed Physician Assistants, Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses, and Credentialed Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counselors. The goals of Faith Mission include the management and treatment of alcohol and/or substance withdrawal, as well as disorders associated with alcohol and/or substance use, the promotion of abstinence from alcohol and all substances, and screening and referral to other appropriate health or mental hygiene service providers resulting in continuity care.
