Hours: As of July 1 2009 we are open 24 hours a day/7 days a week.


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. Dore Street Care Clinic does not accept walk-ins without referrals from mental health providers or those mentioned above.

Dore Urgent Care ClinicEdit

Clients can meet 5150 criteria but they must be willing and able to sign in voluntarily when they arrive at the Urgent Care Center and participate in an interview and assessment. Medically stable with no acute medical conditions (toxic ingestions, cardiac symptoms, altered mental status or intoxication so severe that the client cannot participate in the intake process). Client upon entry must be able and willing to agree to no harm to themselves or anyone else. Must be non-violent (no need for seclusion or restraint). The Dore Urgent Care Clinic is open 24/7. The clinic can accommodate up to 12 clients at a time.

Dore HouseEdit

A short term residential treatment program with 14 beds, with referral primarily from Dore clinic. Now open with staff 24/7. The crisis residential program is modeled on the ADUs with a stay of 2 weeks.
