Pivot Point Assessment

"Help for Today, Hope for Tomorrow."  

Adults in need of mental health support other than inpatient psychiatric care, incarceration, and involuntary admission to detoxification.  

Assessment services provides immediate access to care for adults (18+) with critical mental health episodes or need for substance abuse stabilization in the Black Hills area.  Our services focus on  personalized recovery through a stabilization plan that is established through the collaborative efforts of the patient and his/her assigned Qualified Mental Health Professional (QMHP).  The plan is aimed at providing the patient a framework for moving forward and preventing future crises.  Individuals are admitted to the assessment services for up to 24 hours and then referred to community agencies or service providers for continued care.
