Alliance oversees Mobile Crisis services in Durham, Wake, Cumberland and Johnston counties. Mobile Crisis provides integrated, short-term crisis response, stabilization and intervention for adults and children experiencing a mental health or chemical dependency crisis. The Team can come to you where you are, and its services are confidential, non-judgmental and respectful.
The first line of crisis response for an individual should be his or her primary treatment provider.
