Crisis Services We Offer at resolve

Crisis intervention and hospital diversion are at the forefront of resolve Crisis Services. Anyone who resides in Allegheny County can access our services, regardless of ability to pay or type of crisis.

At resolve, our mantra is that everyone defines his or her own crisis.

We can help with problems such as these:

  • You've had a bad day or a series of bad days.
  • You're dealing with the loss of a loved one or cherished pet.
  • Your workplace has become stressful.
  • You're having trouble finding a job.
  • You're worried that you may have a mental illness but aren't sure where to go for help.
  • You feel that you may have a drug or alcohol addiction.
  • You want to help a loved one with any of these concerns.

A crisis isn't limited to one condition or concern. We're here to help you work through any problem that you may be having.

Our team has specialized training in crisis work. Many members of our staff have faced crises in their own lives and can offer empathy and understanding.
