DUCC is a social model rehabilitation approach to crisis intervention. The program is designed to assist SFGH Psychiatric Emergency (PES) and other hospital emergency services by accepting adult clients in psychiatric crisis who do not require hospitalization but who are currently taken to PES for evaluation and treatment. Call and ask for a clinician to present a client. In many cases we can help arrange transportation.

DUCC takes referrals from Mobile Crisis, SFPD, community mental health clinics, case managers, outside clinics, PES triage and medical emergency rooms.
