BHSB Stabilization Center

DESCRIPTION

Episcopal Housing Corporation is working with Behavioral Health Systems Baltimore and Tuerk House on the fit out of the State’s first Stabilization Center. The Center will provide voluntary non-emergency care 24/7 for up to 35 adults who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol.  Services provided will include medical screening and examination, medical monitoring, and screening for referrals for substance abuse, mental health, and physical health treatment. The Center will divert clients from emergency rooms and from being subject to arrest.

A temporary Stabilization Center is currently located at the Tuerk House, a substance abuse recovery center, in West Baltimore. The permanent location will be adjacent to the Tuerk House, located in the first floor of the former Hebrew Orphan’s Asylum, a grand, Victorian Romanesque mansion, built in the 1870s.
