The Crisis Recovery Centers are a med stabilization/detox facility, meaning if someone is in crisis and needs to be stabilized on their medications or if someone is seeking detox from drugs or alcohol. There are two Crisis Recovery Centers—one in Kannapolis and one in Monroe. Daymark Recovery Services operates both centers. The centers are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
If you are experiencing a crisis related to mental health or substance use/addiction, you may walk in to either center and a specialist will assist you in getting help. The centers also serve individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities who are experiencing mental health or substance use/addiction crises.
