The Behavioral Health Services Section has been developed by the Duxbury Police Crisis Intervention Team. We are a team of Officers who have received specific training in these areas. Our goal is to get a person in crisis the help they need. Whether it is a crisis of the mind, a crisis brought on by drug/alcohol use, or both. It is important to know that there is help not only for the person in crisis but for the family as well. Substance use disorder and mental health conditions can have a very traumatic affect on families and friends.
Crisis Intervention Team Officers are on hand to assist you, a friend, or a loved one in any way they can to get you the help you need. Need help navigating resources? We can help. Whether it be over the phone or in person. We are also able to meet with you in uniform or discreetly out of uniform.
