Our Treatment Options

Understanding Behavioral Health in Colorado

Behavioral health in Colorado encompasses a broad spectrum of services aimed at supporting individuals struggling with mental health disorders, substance use disorders, or both. As professionals dedicated to this field, we recognize the importance of providing a holistic, person-centered approach to treatment and recovery. Our focus is on delivering compassionate care that addresses both the psychological and physical aspects of these conditions.

Our Treatment Options

Residential Treatment

Our residential treatment program is designed as a safe haven for individuals requiring round-the-clock care. Within this program, clients benefit from a structured environment that fosters healing and growth. Our team of therapists and medical professionals work closely with each client to develop personalized treatment plans that address their unique needs.

Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient Programs

For those who need structured treatment but with the flexibility to maintain certain personal and professional commitments, our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) offer a balanced solution. These programs provide a rigorous treatment schedule, including therapy sessions and skill-building workshops, without full-time residential care.

Specialized Care for Co-Occurring Disorders

Addressing the complex needs of individuals with co-occurring disorders is one of our specialties. Our integrated approach ensures that both the mental health disorder and the substance use disorder are treated concurrently, recognizing that these conditions often influence each other. This comprehensive care model aims to improve overall well-being and reduce the likelihood of relapse.

Innovative Therapy Approaches

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Our therapeutic modalities are evidence-based and tailored to promote recovery and facilitate the development of healthy coping mechanisms. DBT focuses on mindfulness and emotional regulation, CBT addresses negative thought patterns, and ACT encourages acceptance and psychological flexibility. Through these therapies, individuals learn to navigate their emotions and behaviors more effectively.

Support Beyond Treatment

Alumni Program

Our commitment to our clients extends beyond their time in treatment. Through our Alumni Program, former clients can stay connected with our community, access ongoing resources, and find encouragement from others who share their journey of recovery. This network of support is vital for sustaining the progress made during treatment.

Relapse Prevention

Key to long-term recovery is the ability to recognize and manage potential triggers. Our relapse prevention strategies are designed to equip our clients with the tools they need to maintain their sobriety and mental health. By identifying personal triggers and developing effective coping mechanisms, individuals can navigate the challenges of recovery with confidence.

Lived Experiences: A Cornerstone of Our Approach

At the heart of our treatment philosophy is the belief that everyone’s experience is unique. We honor this by integrating personal insights and anecdotal evidence into our care plans. Hearing the stories of others and sharing your own can be profoundly healing, providing a sense of belonging and understanding that is essential for recovery.

Support Beyond Treatment

Does Colorado have good mental health care?

Colorado is renowned for its progressive stance towards mental health care. The state’s approach is holistic and patient-centered, focusing on the individual needs of each person seeking help. At Colorado Behavioral Health, we pride ourselves on offering a wide array of therapies and programs designed to address various mental health disorders and substance use. Our dedication to providing evidence-based treatments, including DBT, CBT, and ACT, ensures that our clients receive the highest standard of care. However, like any system, there’s always room for growth and improvement, especially in terms of accessibility and reducing stigma. The ongoing challenge is ensuring that these services reach everyone who needs them, regardless of their location or economic status.

Is Colorado in a mental health crisis?

Colorado, like many places worldwide, is facing significant challenges in addressing mental health adequately. The state has seen an increase in the demand for mental health services, partly due to the rising awareness and decreasing stigma surrounding these issues. While calling it a crisis might emphasize the urgent need for services and support, it also highlights the strides taken towards improving mental health care infrastructure. At Colorado Behavioral Health, we are part of the solution, providing comprehensive support and care for individuals facing emotional, behavioral, and co-occurring disorders. Our focus remains on expanding our reach and enhancing the quality of care to address the needs of our community effectively.

What is a 72 hour psych hold in Colorado?

In Colorado, a 72-hour psych hold, often referred to as an M-1 hold, is a legal action where an individual can be held in a psychiatric facility for up to 72 hours without their consent. This measure is taken when someone is considered a significant risk to themselves or others due to a mental health disorder. The purpose is to provide immediate evaluation, treatment, and stabilization in a safe environment. At Colorado Behavioral Health, while we do not directly initiate M-1 holds, we understand the critical nature of such interventions and provide the necessary support and care for individuals once they are referred to us or voluntarily seek our services following such an event.

Is behavioral health the same as psych?

Behavioral health and psychology, often referred to as ‘psych,’ are closely related but not identical. Behavioral health encompasses a broader spectrum, including the treatment of mental health disorders, substance use disorders, and behaviors that impact health and wellbeing. Psychology typically focuses more on the mind and behavior from an individual perspective, exploring thoughts, emotions, and actions. At Colorado Behavioral Health, we integrate both concepts, offering a comprehensive approach that addresses the psychological and physical aspects of these conditions. This holistic perspective ensures that our clients receive tailored care that meets their specific needs.

How effective are therapy and counseling in treating mental health disorders?

Therapy and counseling are highly effective in treating mental health disorders, offering individuals the tools and insights needed to manage their conditions and improve their quality of life. At Colorado Behavioral Health, we utilize a range of evidence-based therapies, including DBT, CBT, and ACT, which have been proven to be effective for a variety of mental health issues. The success of therapy largely depends on the individual’s commitment to the process and the therapeutic alliance between the therapist and the client. Personalizing the approach to fit the unique needs of each client ensures the best outcomes. Therapy not only helps alleviate symptoms but also empowers individuals to make meaningful changes in their lives, promoting long-term wellness and recovery.
