Early Intervention Support Services (EISS)

Are you feeling overwhelmed or stressed?

Finding your way to wellness and recovery during times of crisis is not always easy. Early Intervention Support Services (EISS) helps adults ages 18 years and older in Camden and Cumberland Counties who are experiencing emotional problems.

Don’t go straight to the Emergency Room. We can help! Many people in crisis who need immediate help with symptoms of a mental illness go to local hospital emergency rooms and wait a long time for care. EISS offers an alternative for those who are not in need of psychiatric hospitalization.

EISS focuses on helping you choose your best path while building and reinforcing coping skills and support networks. The program emphasizes wellness and recovery principals that will see you through the immediate crisis and future challenges.

Get the Help You Need, When You Need It

To access crisis services, visit EISS during office hours. You do not need to make an appointment. Soon after arriving, you will meet with a team member who will help you create a plan to better manage your problems and begin feeling better. Our team will work with you to find the best treatment option available.

Treatment options include:

  • Individual counseling
  • Peer support
  • Medication treatment
  • Psychiatric consultation
  • Skill building groups
  • Support groups
  • Access to community resources
  • Referral to follow-up services

EISS offers a relaxing, therapeutic “Living Room” environment to help visitors feel more comfortable. When you walk through the doors, you will find several comfortable seating areas, computers, a television, books, board games and a tropical fish tank. Depending on the day, you may even encounter a therapy dog! After acclimating to the new surroundings, a team member will listen to identify concerns, provide emotional support and begin to deliver the help needed to resolve the crisis.

Take Control of Your Life

While remaining in the community, you will work with the EISS team for up to 30 days to develop your strengths. Our goal is to help you acquire the skills and resilience necessary to manage your crisis and move on with your life. In order to continue with the strides you make while at the program, we will assist you in building a support network to implement a successful recovery. Support networks may include service providers, family members, friends, religious institutions and other community resources.
