The center serves children and adolescents who have serious, emotional and behavioral problems that cause significant disruption in their lives. The target population ranges in ages from 3 to 17.

The Crisis Residential Center's services are provided by a contract with the Wood Group. The Wood Group provides Assisted Living Services that are designed to provide 24 hour supervision of a resident for an extended stay. Persons who utilize Assisted Living Beds normally will be in the program for an extended amount of time. The length of services is determined by the need of the resident. Residents in this program must be able to self administer medications. All medications are monitored and maintained by trained Assisted Living Staff. Consumers may reside in Jefferson, Hardin, Orange, or Chambers Counties and may exhibit psychiatric symptoms which significantly impair their ability to work or attend school and maintain family or other interpersonal relationships. When a mental health situation, (such as a mental health emergency) arises, the CRC staff may refer consumers to other area community programs or services (such as inpatient hospitalization, PATH, Outpatient Services). Follow-up results of such referrals are documented by CRC staff within seventy-two hours.

Psychiatric Inpatient Services

Spindletop Center arranges for emergency psychiatric services adequate to meet the needs of the four-county area it serves through a contract with The Memorial Hermann Behavioral Health Center.  Mental health emergencies are evaluated promptly and the disposition of each request for inpatient services is based upon professional evaluation and physician consultation.  These services are available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week to individuals experiencing emotional crises.

As a functioning inpatient crisis unit, The Memorial Hermann Behavioral Health Center provides an array of programs and services of short term duration within a structured residential setting to individuals who exhibit primary psychiatric disorders to such an extent that stabilization in an inpatient setting is warranted.  The primary goal of services is to restore the individual to a level of functioning which will enable discharge to a less restrictive level of care as quickly as possible.

The facility offers short-term voluntary or involuntary services to Jefferson, Hardin, Chambers, and Orange County residents who are in an acute state of mental or emotional crisis.  It provides twenty-four hour physician-directed intensive intervention, stabilization, and pre-discharge
planning for continuing assistance in the community or through the Spindletop Center network.

The facility provides diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of patients of all ages, including adolescents, young and mature adults and senior citizens.  The illnesses and emotional problems vary widely from mood disorders such as depression, to alcohol or drug abuse induced psychiatric events.  The scope of individual treatment ranges from acute inpatient care to day treatment and outpatient services.

Substance Abuse Services

The Spindletop Center substance abuse treatment programs provide outpatient services. Treatment includes individual, group and family counseling along with aftercare, relapse prevention, education and support groups. Mental health and mental retardation services are offered for the individuals with a dual diagnosis. The target population for substance abuse services consists of:

  • Women who are pregnant and are injecting drug users
  • Women who are pregnant substance abusers
  • Injecting drug users
  • Former SSI recipients disabled from substance abuse
  • Anyone with a substance abuse problem

All of the programs are available in Jefferson, Orange, Hardin and Chambers counties.

Mental Health First Aid

Mental Health First Aid

Mental Health First Aid USA is an 8-hour training to teach participants how to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. The evidence behind the program demonstrates that it helps trainees identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders.

Mental Health First Aid is intended for people and organizations across all communities. The course is presented to chambers of commerce, professional associations, hospitals, nursing homes, rotary clubs, parent organizations, social clubs, and other groups. Professionals who regularly interact with a lot of people (such as police officers, human resource directors, and primary care workers), school and college leadership, faith communities, friends and family of individuals with mental illness or addiction, or anyone interested in learning more about mental illness and addiction should get trained.

Due to COVID-19 protocols, all MHFA trainings hosted by the Spindletop Center will be hosted virtually. First Aiders will complete a 2-hour, self-paced online class, and then participate in a 6-hour, Instructor-led videoconference. To schedule a class, please contact Haley Riley at (409) 748-5261 or email Haley.Riley@stctr.org.
