Next Day Services
CRC has the rare capacity to provide next business day appointments, in most cases.
Too often, when individuals are released back to the community and need to continue their mental health and/or psychiatric treatment, they are faced with multiple barriers including long waitlists, lack of transportation, and a shortage of psychiatrists and mental health providers in their communities.
At CRC, we aim to establish a continuum of care from the correctional facilities to the community, so people receive the care they need as soon as they are released.
We strive to improve access to care by eliminating wait times and are committed to providing timely care.
At CRC, you will not have to wait weeks or months to start treatment. In most cases, we can schedule an appointment the next business day, after we receive your information, and the referral is processed.
Welcome to CRC, in order to obtain our next day services you will need either a smartphone or a computer with video capability. You will also need to be actively enrolled in a Mass Health insurance plan.
CRC strives to provide you with excellent service. We hope to consistently meet your expectations of exceptional care. We provide a virtual environment with skilled Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Mental Health Clinicians, and Psychiatrists to assist you in your mental health and substance abuse needs.
Our care team is here to help you.
CRC staff are continuously working to improve the patient experience, clinical outcomes, and provide an excellent experience for all of our patients. We are centered on healing and wellness and collaborate with several community resources to provide you with the care you need.
Our goal is to help each patient successfully reintegrate into the community through achieving their wellness goals.
As behavioral professionals with decades of experience working with individuals involved with the criminal justice system, we know how important it is to get uninterrupted care upon release from jail or prison. We know it can help reduce the risk of reincarceration, help individuals maintain their newly gained sobriety, avoid fatal overdoses, and remain psychologically stable.
When incarcerated individuals with mental health issues and/or substance use disorders have continuity of care during the reentry period, they are less likely to face many negative outcomes such as relapses, fatal overdoses, criminal behavior and reincarceration.
CRC was developed to help those who have been released suddenly from Houses of Corrections and Jails and may not have the follow-up care they need in place.
Our team will be able to help any individuals released from jail or prison receive behavioral and substance use treatment including Medications for Opioid Use Disorders (MOUD).
With the right help, sustained recovery is possible.
At CRC we aim to close treatment gaps for recently incarcerated individuals. Our goal is to establish a system of continuum of behavioral care that goes from the correctional facilities to the community.
