Crisis Stabilization Unit

Centerstone’s Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU) in Carterville provides a supportive, stabilizing environment for adults experiencing difficulty managing mental health symptoms, but who do not require inpatient care.

While at the CSU, you will:

  • Develop many skills, including coping and recovery skills, and symptom management tools with the help of a knowledgeable and supportive trauma-informed treatment team
  • Participate in assessment, treatment planning, and group services that promote hope, growth and improved quality of life in a compassionate environment
  • Have access to 24-hour wraparound care during your short-term stay (typically 3-7 days), including:
    • An experienced nurse who can answer your questions and provide you with care and support
    • Telepsychiatry services to prescribe or modify medication, if necessary
    • A treatment team who will work with you throughout your stay with us, including post-discharge supports and connections to Centerstone and other community services


CSU admissions are scheduled 8:30 a.m. – 2 p.m., Monday – Friday with trauma informed crisis staff.
