What are the conditions of guests?

All guests are triaged immediately for appropriateness for the facility. Individuals with violent behavior are diverted by law enforcement to another location. Guests present primarily with mental illness conditions, for example suicidal behaviors. If guests arrive under the influence of a chemical substance, and cannot be stabilized, they are sent to a more appropriate facility. The CRC is very different from Western State Hospital, which cares for long-term patients and those who may have violent histories
