Client Handbook

David Lawrence Center success stories “In just a few days, I began thinking clearly and was able to stop looking inward and start thinking about my wife, my daughter and all the things I still wanted to accomplish.”
Crisis Stabilization Services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for the emergency mental health and substance abuse needs of children, adolescents, adults and the elderly. The Adult Crisis Stabilization Unit is a 28-bed, non-hospital, inpatient mental health unit that provides brief voluntary & involuntary evaluation and treatment for individuals experiencing a psychiatric crisis who meet the criteria defined under the Florida Mental Health Act.

Adults in a psychiatric crisis may be experiencing:
  • suicidal thoughts
  • severe depression and/or anxiety
  • stress or trauma
  • hearing voices
  • bizarre or threatening behavior
  • drug or alcohol abuse
  • physical, emotional or sexual abuse
  • family and interpersonal conflicts
  • work or school related crisis
  • breaks with reality
Evaluations are performed by a team of behavioral healthcare professionals trained in risk assessment and crisis intervention evaluations. Adults who may be in danger of harming themselves or others can be admitted under the Baker Act law. The David Lawrence Center is the Baker Act Receiving Facility for Collier County. Referrals can come from parents, law enforcement, local hospital, physicians and other concerned parties.
