Subject: Crisis Intervention Services
Set Free Alaska offers crisis intervention during normal business hours to assist clients who
experience an event that produces emotional, mental, physical and behavioral distress. Set Free
Alaska does not provide crisis intervention services after normal business hours. Set Free Alaska
arranges for access to crisis intervention services through providing clients with a list of
community resources for crisis intervention services.
1.If a client is experiencing an event that produces emotional, mental, physical and behavioral
distress during normal business hours, staff follow procedures outlined in Nonviolent practices.
Substance abuse clients and those with a co-occurring disorder have the potential to become
symptomatic and act out manifestations of their disorder, thereby creating a crisis situation. If
the crisis is an imminent emergency (the client is a danger to self or others) then the “Crisis Alert
System” is activated to request immediate assistance. This telephonic protocol applies to all
locations and will be used in the event of a crisis, except when there is a periodic crisis alert drill.
2. At Intake and at client’s first meeting with their individual counselor, Set Free Alaska
personnel will provide a list of agencies and / or services that can provide support during crisis
