Check In at an Urgent Care and Crisis Center
At any point in your journey, the 988 call center can help set up a same-day or next-day appointment with your closest mental health provider. You might see a provider to begin therapy, start a medication, or in a small number of cases, receive inpatient treatment. 988 has this relationship with every Community Mental Health, Community Behavioral Health, and Comprehensive Community Addiction Recovery Center in the state of Oklahoma.

What is an Urgent Care and Crisis Center?
Mental health is healthcare, and sometimes getting better takes more than a conversation. If a person calls 988 and requires additional support, Urgent Care and Crisis Centers are an option.
Urgent Care and Crisis Centers offer accessible mental health and substance abuse care where people can stabilize and receive professional help during a crisis. Functioning much like a hospital ER, Urgent Care and Crisis Centers accept 24/7/365 walk-ins, as well as ambulance, fire, and police drop-offs.
Keeping care local is important to feeling heard. That’s why each of these facilities is staffed with a team of local psychiatrists, nurses, licensed behavioral health practitioners, and peers with similar lived experiences to the population they serve.
