Our mental health care programs

Our comprehensive programs are designed to accommodate your level of need and your daily schedule. This gives you access to diverse therapeutic approaches that can improve your quality of life.

Partial hospitalization program (PHP)

Our PHP provides an intensive, structured setting if you have difficulty maintaining daily routines because of mental health conditions. It is less intensive than hospitalization while being more supportive than outpatient therapy alone and includes flexible treatment options, such as:

  • Evidence-based recovery models
  • Group, individual and family interventions
  • Life skills practice opportunities
  • Medication evaluation
  • Patient-centered goal setting and treatment planning
  • Psychiatric consultation

We conduct pre- and post-evaluations to determine the success of treatment interventions so ongoing treatments can be adjusted to meet your needs.

Joining the PHP

The program offers treatments for adults Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 3:00pm, so you can be home in the evening.

For more information about the PHP or to schedule an assessment, call (303) 360-3736.

Intensive outpatient program (IOP)

Our IOP is designed to support and maintain mental and emotional health while providing the tools you need to achieve mental well-being as an outpatient. It empowers you to explore individual growth and healing within a group setting through participation in treatment during the day and returning home each afternoon.

What the IOP includes

To address these mental health issues and others, you receive a wide array of structured therapy, including:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Dialectical behavioral therapy, focusing on mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance and interpersonal effectiveness
  • Life skills
  • Dual-diagnosis therapy
  • Trauma-informed therapy

Attending the IOP

This program is right for you if you are physically healthy and have no immediate risk of harm to yourself or others.

IOP meetings for adults take place Monday through Thursday from noon to 3:00pm at HealthONE Behavioral Health & Wellness Center.

For more information about the IOP or to schedule an assessment, call (303) 360-3736.

Electroconvulsive therapy

Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is a proven method to help adults who need help with achieving mental well-being.

While many people have reservations about ECT, this treatment has been life-changing for many. Compared to how it was used in the past, today ECT is administered by a team of professionals — including a psychiatrist, an anesthesiologist and a nurse — while you are under general anesthesia. Modern ECT consists of controlled, electrical currents that affect brain chemistry in a way that can improve mental health.

Who benefits from ECT

ECT is especially beneficial if you have not responded well to medications, may be pregnant or are experiencing a rapid regression into crisis. It can help if you:

  • Cannot tolerate the side effects of certain medications
  • Experience symptoms of catatonia
  • Have had multiple hospitalizations and regressed rapidly into a crisis
  • Need for rapid, definitive response because of the severity of a psychiatric or medical condition
  • Suffer from depression, mania or psychosis and who have not responded or only partially responded to conventional treatment, such as medications and therapy

For more information about the ECT or to schedule an assessment, call (303) 360-3150 or fax (303) 360-3152.

Women's behavioral health unit

To meet the unique health needs of women, we have opened Colorado’s first behavioral health unit, including an IOP and PHP, for women 18 years old and older. Here, you will find providers trained in women’s health, a staff primarily made up of women, located in an environment that promotes growth.

Schedule an assessment and consultation by calling (844) 556-2012.

Women-specific mental health and wellness

Biological, social and environmental influences can cause psychological changes that make it difficult to function at one’s best ability. In women, we find these changes in emotional well-being are:

  • Biological and chemical imbalances
  • Experiences of discrimination
  • Experiences of domestic or sexual violence
  • Feelings of guilt or shame
  • Overwhelming sense of obligation to take care of family
  • Societal pressures specifically placed on women, wives and mothers
  • Work-related stress unique to being a woman

In these cases, our team approach that integrates the latest clinical research is specifically designed to address the kinds of challenges women face in everyday life. The goal of our program is always to use compassion and clinical excellence to help women along their personalized wellness journey.

Where to find behavioral health services for adults

Adults between 18 and 54 years old may receive the benefits of our inpatient program, partial hospitalization program, intensive outpatient program and electroconvulsive therapy (ECT).

To schedule an appointment or assessment here for adult mental health services, call (844) 556-2012.
