CCJBH April 2022 Full Council Meeting

April 29, 2022

2:00 PM – 4:30 PM

Location: 8260 Longleaf Drive, Building C, Suite 101

Elk Grove, CA 95758

The Crisis Receiving for Behavioral Health (CRBH) program, operated by WellSpace Health, presented on their program that provides short-term (4-12 hour) recovery, detoxification, and recuperation from the effects of acute alcohol or drug intoxication to anyone in need. It is an innovative program that serves people intoxicated on all substances, many of whom also have co-occurring mental health conditions. Clients are transported to and from CRBH directly by authorized referral partners and WellSpace Health mobile response. Collaboration with law enforcement is very important, and this program relieves law enforcement officers from having to make a determination about whether someone has primarily a substance use issue or a mental health issue, ensuring a quick and simple drop-off process that avoids a booking into jail. CRBH works to engage clients in support for any needs they have at that point.
