ABOUT THE NEIL DOBBINS CENTER

Located in Asheville, N.C., the Neil Dobbins Center treats individuals with developmental disabilities and behavioral health disorders. Known to the greater interstate RHA Health Services network as Facility-Based Crisis (FBA), the program provides short-term crisis stabilization and intervention services to adults struggling with mental illness.

The Neil Dobbins Center provides clients with a safe place to stay during a mental health crisis. The typical length of stay is one to four days, as the program is designed for short term assistance. This facility provides treatment for individuals with voluntary and involuntary commitment.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

The facility is open 24 hours per day, seven days per week. Clients can come into the facility for community-based therapeutic intervention services and assessments at any time. Treatment starts with an evaluation to determine the best course of action and treatment.

Treatment may include individual and group counseling, behavioral management and medication management. If short-term treatment isn’t effective, clients may be admitted for longer term treatment that includes ongoing assessments.

Toward the end of treatment, an aftercare plan is formulated that includes ongoing recovery planning. Clients are referred to community support services and other treatment, if applicable.

It helped my loved one while they attended, but they didn't complete the program. Not enough staff or funding. The cost of really good programs is too high for the average person. This program was for those that can't afford it.
