12VAC30-50-226. Community mental health services. 5 B. Crisis Intervention
Region V ES Council have discussed this issue in the past and agree that requiring authorization for Crisis Intervention and Crisis Stabilization is not in the best interest of the individual being served . The proposed change to require authorization rather than the current required registration will create a barrier to immediate access to a level of care that is less restrictive in nature and prevents hospitalization.
