$12M crisis center to open in Georgia

Augusta, Ga.-based Serenity Behavioral Health plans to build a new $12 million addiction and mental health crisis center, ABC affiliate WJBF reported May 22. 

"We'll be one of the first of its kind as far as this type of facility goes," Stephen Martell, the chief clinical officer at Serenity Behavioral Health, told the news outlet. "We are your safety network provider. We will not turn you away due to your inability to pay. We do connect with state contracts to provide comprehensive mental health, substance use disorder, and intellectual and developmental disability disorder services."

The new center will have 24 crisis unit beds and between 16 to 23 observation beds. Its current crisis center only has 16 beds.

The unit is slated to open in 2025.
