EISS - Early Intervention Support Services

Monmouth Medical Center Behavioral Health

General Information
Description of ServiceShort term, mental health services for adults who are experiencing significant emotional or psychiatric distress and are in need of immediate intervention. Early Intervention Support Services offers crisis intervention and crisis stabilization services in a setting that is an alternative to hospital based emergency room treatment.

The goal of the program is to provide individuals with a timely alternative to emergency room crisis units. For patients who have already been evaluated by a crisis unit, EISS is able to provide treatment so that inpatient psychiatric treatment and hospitalization can be avoided.

Within 24 hours of referral to EISS, patients will meet with a licensed social worker. Patients will also meet with an advanced practice nurse within 48 hours for medication evaluation. Additionally, the EISS treatment team includes two case managers to help patients access community resources, a registered nurse to help assess medical issues and provide counseling and a peer recovery specialist to help navigate the mental health system and develop a wellness plan.

Team members work closely with families and have regular contact with social service organizations that support clients’ needs. EISS services also include individual and group psychotherapy.

Patients can be seen on-site at the new EISS facility in Neptune, but the program is mobile as well. Staff will meet clients where they are located and a staff member is available 24 hours a day by phone for emergencies or referrals.
