Our trained team of Emergency Services clinicians provide 24/7 crisis services here on the Eastern Shore of VA, with certified and licensed staff ready to assist you and your family at anytime day or night.

Treatment Philosophy

At Emergency Services, we view a psychiatric or substance abuse crisis as a critical and/or opportune time to intervene. Often the crisis brings to light some patterns of thinking, feeling, or relating that are not producing desired results in a person’s life.

These patterns are often indicative of underlying pain with which the individual has difficulty coping. The successful intervention will help the individual begin the process of dealing more adaptively with the pain or problems they are experiencing.

We provide an array of services to help the individual resolve the crisis in the least restrictive, recovery-oriented method possible.

Treatment Location

Our Emergency Services team is comprised of state certified, licensed and experienced clinicians who are available on the Eastern Shore 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. We provide face to face or telephone response to individuals and families experiencing crisis, or to an involved party who is concerned about the person in crisis.

During our regular business hours of 8:30am to 5pm Monday through Friday, individuals may be scheduled for an emergency appointment at our Emergency Services office:

Tasley (Admin and Emerg. Serv)
24233 Lankford Highway
Tasley, VA 23441

For after-hours access 5pm to 8:30am, an on-call clinician will respond to the crisis call through the ESCSB Emergency Services answer service by calling our 24-Hour Crisis Services numbers:

If a face to face appointment is required after-hours, it will be set up at the Riverside Shore Memorial Emergency Department or another designated ESCSB emergency site.
