Bridgeway Crisis Intervention Services (BCIS) is an Urgent Care Center providing crisis intervention and support to Hudson County residents age 18 and older who are experiencing a mental health crisis or a worsening of a pre-existing mental health disorder. The goal is to help people in crisis gain control of their symptoms and remain in the community as an alternative to going to the emergency room.
BCIS provides crisis intervention and support through a three-step process. First, the multidisciplinary team comprehensively assesses all enrollees for their mental health needs and co-occurring needs if substance use is an issue. Second, the team provides clinical services and medication management as needed as part of the brief crisis stabilization that takes place with all individuals. Lastly, BCIS partners with mental health outpatient centers and community based agencies in Hudson County and outside the county if needed to ensure that rapid referral and linkages take place and that treatment continues successfully after discharge from BCIS, if continued treatment is clinically indicated and sought by the individual.
The Bridgeway Center for Integrated Behavioral Health Care is designed for residents of Hudson County to provide a comprehensive array of services needed to create rapid access, stabilize people in crisis, and provide the necessary treatment for those with the most serious, complex mental health conditions and substance use disorders, complete with physical health screenings.
During the month of September 2021, Bridgeway will build infrastructure and capacity that will enable the delivery of Integrated Behavioral Health Care, in coordination with pre-existing Bridgeway services, and in partnership with community providers. Very soon, Hudson County residents and stakeholders will have a multi-disciplinary Bridgeway center for mental health and substance use recovery, wellness, trauma-informed care, and physical-behavioral health integration.
