MCOT services focus on providing timely crisis assessments and development of a treatment plan unique to the individual’s needs.

Crisis Respite Unit: Located in Williamson County in Georgetown, Bluebonnet Trails offers a 12-bed voluntary Crisis Respite Unit, serving all individuals throughout our 8 counties. Here our well-trained staff assists individuals in crisis, through assessments and evaluations to determine the most suitable care plan for recovery. The average length of stay for individuals is 7 days, which includes linking to resources, providing skills training, group therapy, and psychiatric stabilization for individuals to return back to their community successfully.
Extended Observation Units: Bluebonnet Trails offers 2 Extended Observation Units (EOU) to provide services to those in crises. We have a northern location in Georgetown with a 4-bed unit and a southern location in Seguin with a 6-bed unit, both providing services to individuals within our 8 counties.
Our EOU locations offer voluntary and involuntary admission for individuals in crisis who need short-term care to achieve stabilization. Once admitted, individuals will be seen by a doctor within the first hour to ensure appropriate medications are provided. Licensed nurses will monitor symptoms and provide support 24/7. We offer up to 48 hours of care, working with the individual to fulfill a step-down care plan to decrease the need for inpatient hospitalization.
