Crisis Recovery Center


Crisis Recovery Center at Parkland-Spanaway

The Crisis Recovery Center (CRC) is expected to open Summer 2021. The CRC will be operated by RI International, who also operates the Recovery Response Center in Fife. The CRC provides a safe alternative for individuals in need of support when faced with a mental health and or substance use crisis. The support staff consists of a team of psychiatrists, nurses, mental health professionals, individuals that specialize in resources management and peer support specialists. Referrals to the CRC must be made by law enforcement, Emergency Medical Services, First Responders, or community providers.


We need a place in the Parkland-Spanaway area where law enforcement, EMTs, and families can bring those suffering from mental health crises -- such as suicidal thoughts and delusional disorders -- to receive immediate and appropriate care.  First responders, health care providers, and the community identified this facility as a top priority for our region.  A Crisis Recovery Center serves only 16 people at any one time, has a 1:2 staff-to-patient ratio, is locked and secure, and all patients are transported to and from the center by law enforcement, ambulance, family or contracted transport.
