Acute Treatment Unit

Our Acute Treatment Unit stabilization facility (ATU) is designed to help people who are experiencing behavioral health emergencies and require support beyond what can be provided at home.

The ATU facility is a safe, affordable, and local alternative to a hospital stay,
which means you can begin crisis stabilization treatment in a comfortable, non-intimidating setting close to home. Compassionate behavioral health specialists and medical staff specialize in stabilization support to provide local, wrap-around care you can trust.

Upon completing treatment, North Range clients have access to a continuum of care that reaches beyond what you can find elsewhere in Colorado. From residential to intensive outpatient, to individual and group outpatient support, there is a place for everyone in the North Range network.

If you or someone you know is experiencing a behavioral health emergency, our crisis support professionals can help you explore options for the situation.

Community Based Treatment and Support

Community Based Treatment and Support

Mental illness affects many of us. It is one of the most common health conditions in the United States and it affects our friends, our families, and ourselves.

For those of us who are experiencing mental health disorders, community based mental health treatment and supports can promote a positive outlook on life and enable people to participate in life and accomplish life goals. Our community-based programs are built on the belief that effective treatment must also address the social and environmental factors that underlie an individual’s mental health issues.

Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) Program

Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) Program provides outreach, case management, medication monitoring, stabilization and wellness support for those living with severe and persistent mental illness. The goal is to reduce hospitalizations and help people with significant challenges become more engaged in the community and live independently.

Frontier House

Frontier House is an innovative community-based program that follows the Clubhouse Model of Psychosocial Rehabilitation first established in New York City’s Fountain House over 70 years ago. Considered a model program in Colorado, Frontier House is founded on the commitment and belief that individuals with mental illness can and will actively engage in a recovery process given the opportunity to do so. Membership to the clubhouse is open to anyone over 18 with a diagnosis of mental illness or substance use disorder. To learn more about the Frontier House, visit FrontierHouse.org.

Peer Specialist Support Program

Our Peer Specialist Support Program pairs adults with lived experience to support individuals through struggles with mental illness, psychological trauma, crises, and/or substance use. Peer Specialists work in a variety of North Range programs with the goal of helping people to learn to advocate for themselves and develop effective coping techniques and self-help strategies. This group of trained individuals support individuals throughout the recovery journey by:

  • Helping people in recovery articulate their recovery goals
  • Modeling, encouraging, and supporting the use of new coping skills
  • Monitoring recovery progress

Supported Employment through Individual Placement and Support (IPS)

Supported Employment through Individual Placement and Support (IPS) employs a psychosocial rehabilitation model that focuses on wellness and recovery through work. Integrated with treatment provided by North Range, this program helps individuals with mental illness and/or substance use disorders find steady, competitive, supported employment to enhance recovery.

Recovery within the Justice System

We know that strong relationships between behavioral health providers, human services agencies, and the justice system support healing in our communities. That’s why North Range Behavioral Health takes a collaborative and strengths-based approach in dealing with the mental health and substance abuse challenges which so often impact those involved with the legal system. Through these relationships, we hope to create higher levels of public safety, individual responsibility, and quality of life for participants and their families all while closing the revolving door of the justice system, reducing criminal recidivism and relapse behavior, and strengthening recovery rates.

We can help individuals who must:

  • Address the issues that cause involvement with law enforcement - Probation Departments, City and County Courts, Diversion Programs, and Child Welfare Programs, and more.
  • Complete a court order to engage in a behavioral healthcare treatment plan through probation, parole, or other entities within the justice system.
  • Enroll in DUI treatment education.

Our collaborations provide various mental health and substance use disorder supports that reduce crime and create the higher levels of public safety, individual responsibility, and quality of life for participants and their families.

Building mentally well communities leads to safe communities. We proudly partner with the following agencies to integrate mental wellness within the justice system:

  • Weld County Sheriff’s Office
  • Weld County Courts
  • Weld County Probation
  • Weld County Behavioral Interventions
