Our masters-level clinicians offer strengths-focused, evidence-based, and culturally-sensitive therapy to adults and families. Our case managers are skilled in helping families identify their specific needs and locate the appropriate resources to meet those needs. Case managers can offer in-home services when needed. Our clinicians have diverse backgrounds and are experienced in areas of cognitive and behavioral therapy, art therapy, EMDR, motivational interviewing, and dual diagnosis conditions.
Substance Abuse & DUI Services
The Health Solutions substance abuse program is called Crestone Recovery. Each individual is unique, and their treatment programming should meet their specific needs. Many people struggle with both mental health and substance use issues. It is most effective to treat both of these problems at the same time for the best outcome. Our clinical staff is comprised of licensed mental health professionals and certified addictions counselors. We also offer psychiatric evaluation and medication management services.
Crestone Recovery also offers comprehensive and affordable DUI Services that are licensed by the Colorado Division of Behavioral Health (DBH). Classes and therapy are available at a variety of times and days for your convenience.
Domestic Violence Education & Therapy Services
Content areas for domestic violence treatment within our Crestone Recovery program include, but are not limited to, education about domestic violence such as the cycle of violence and how violence affects victims, children, and the community. We also address skill development in anger control, impulse control, stress management, communication, social skills, and emotional control. In addition, education and therapy includes exploration of family of origin, learned behavior, and core beliefs as a result of upbringing and intimate relationship patterns.
Acute Treatment Unit
The Acute Treatment Unit (ATU) is a 16-bed inpatient facility for men and women 18 years of age or older who are in an emotional crisis or have a serious psychiatric issue. It is offered as a less restrictive alternative to hospitalization.
The ATU provides a safe and secure environment for individuals who do not require hospitalization or an extended length of stay. Because of the smaller size of the ATU, staff can work more closely with each client providing group, individual, and/or family therapy along with medication evaluation and management, if indicated. When clients are released from the ATU, their treatment continues with continuity of care that includes discharge planning and assessment of the appropriate type of care in the community.
When you are in a behavioral, emotional, or psychiatric crisis, you can either call or stop by our facility at 1310 Chinook Lane in Pueblo. You will be evaluated by one of our clinicians who will determine which of our several levels of care are most appropriate for you. If inpatient treatment is indicated, our treatment team of psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses, clinicians, behavioral healthcare coordinators, and care managers will then work with you to help you become stabilized.
- The Health Solutions Crisis Living Room offers guests a non-clinical, calm and safe environment for adults experiencing a behavioral, emotional, or psychiatric crisis. This person-centered facility is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Staffed by peer specialists with personal experience in managing the challenges of mental illness, the Living Room allows individuals to receive intervention, support, and mentoring. Unlike hospital emergency rooms, the Living Room offers immediate care with no waiting room.
- The 23 Hour Observation unit is a crisis stabilization unit that provides supportive outpatient therapy for up to 23 consecutive hours at a time. It is ideal for individuals to stay at the unit for a minimum of 5 hours in order to insure stabilization, however admission to 23 Hour Observation is completely voluntary and individuals are free to leave at will.
Early Childhood Services
As a parent, you may wonder whether your toddler’s temper tantrums are “normal,” or why your three year old prefers communicating physically rather than verbally, or whether you should be concerned if your preschooler displays a fascination with fires, or is intent to hurt animals. What is normal behavior? When should you be concerned?
Thanks to funding from the State of Colorado for community behavioral health centers, Health Solutions developed an Early Childhood Program for children from birth to five years of age and their parents. Behavioral health services will be provided to families with preschool kids who have no health insurance or do not qualify for Medicaid under this program. These services are also available to those with Medicaid, other insurance benefits, and cash or credit cards in order to insure stabilization, however admission to 23 Hour Observation is completely voluntary and individuals are free to leave at will.
Child & Adolescent Behavioral Health
Children and adolescents typically face challenges at all ages that are unique to their genetics, individual development, past experiences, and family culture. As we recognize the individual needs of our clients, we offer a variety of services geared to meet each child’s specific needs and encourage healthy development through our Youth & Family Services.
Our therapists, case managers, and psychiatrists share a common goal, and work together to provide services for children between birth and 18 years of age. They utilize best practices that focus on the strengths of the child and his/her family, thus promoting strong relationships and healthy futures for each child enrolled in the program.
Skilled children’s therapists are available in Central, Centennial, East, and South High Schools, as well as Freed, Risley, and Pitts Middle Schools to provide focused, short-term treatment to students with emotional, behavioral, or substance abuse problems. They will also work with school staff, parents, and guardians in coordinating intervention and treatment services for students.
