Crisis Stabilization Services (CSS)

Last updated: November 27, 2018

Are you or someone you know seeking treatment for opioid use or misuse?

The Anne Arundel County Department of Health offers information, referral services and a safe community plan for anyone seeking Substance Use Disorder (SUD) treatment. Crisis Stabilization Services (CSS) are offered at no cost to individuals who are facing an opioid use crisis and are seeking opioid use treatment. The Department of Health will refer you to contracted CSS providers that are located throughout Anne Arundel County.

Individuals admitted to a CSS bed will be assessed and connected to appropriate treatment resources. CSS providers will offer up to four days of stabilization services before a person is admitted for treatment.

As part of the admissions process, an individual is

  • Assessed by clinical staff
  • Offered medication assisted treatment (MAT)
  • Linked with a recovery care coordinator and offered peer support services
  • Admitted to opioid use treatment

For more information about the CSS referral process, call the Anne Arundel County Care Coordination Line, 410-222-0330.

 Treatment Referral and Resource Information Line, 410-222-0117.
