Tellurian CARE House - LaCrosse, Wisconsin

The Tellurian CARE House (Crisis Assessment, Recovery and Empowerment) is a Community Based Residential Facility (CBRF) created to help those who are unnecessarily confined to institutional or hospital settings.   Often times, the problem is primarily due to a lack of community based residential options adequate to meet their needs.  The Tellurian CARE House provides a safe environment for individuals who are experiencing a mental health crisis and who are in need of support, medication and symptom management, as well as goal orientated treatment planning.  

The Tellurian CARE House operate in accordance with the Department of Health Services 34 (DHS) ‘Crisis Stabilization’ requirements.  They have been designed and developed with a goal of returning the individual to their home or work environment as soon as the crisis situation has been stabilized.    The length of stay in the 10 bed facility is dependent on each Consumer’s needs and is typically 3-5 days or less.  However, depending on the crisis, some Consumers may require longer stabilization periods or assistance in obtaining the necessary treatment due to financial assistance, housing or support resources necessary to maintain success within the community environment.

Consumers of the CARE House receive 24-hour support and supervision.  They receive daily individual and group services focused on alleviating symptoms, teaching coping skills, promoting recovery and developing skills necessary for greater independence.  Psychiatric and nursing services are provided, as needed.  Program staff meet with Consumers to assess their needs and develop connections to community resources upon discharge to help assure continued success and recovery.
