Treatment Philosophy

At ESCSB, we view a psychiatric or substance abuse crisis as a critical and/or opportune time to intervene. Often the crisis brings to light patterns of thinking, feeling, or relating that are not producing desired results in a person's life.

These patterns are often indicative of underlying pain with which the individual has difficulty coping. The successful intervention will help the individual begin the process of dealing more adaptively with the pain or problems they are experiencing.

We provide an array of services to help the individual resolve the crisis in the least restrictive, recovery oriented method possible.

Treatment Location

The ESCSB has state certified, experienced clinicians available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week to provide face to face or telephone response to individuals experiencing a crisis or an involved party who is concerned about the person in crisis.

During regular business hours, individuals may be scheduled for an emergency appointment at the office located at 10106 Pine Street, Nassawadox, Virgina.

After hours the on-call clinician will respond to the crisis call through the ESCSB answer service.

If a face to face appointment is required it will be set up at the Riverside Shore Memorial Emergency Department or another designated ESCSB emergency site.
