Accommodations and Food
West Springs Hospital in Grand Junction, Colorado, is a 32-bed facility with fairly basic accommodations; each room equipped with twin beds and utilitarian furniture for storage. Though it offers a number of treatment options, these programs are geared more towards mental health stabilization and short-term care for dual diagnosis than for actual substance abuse treatment. During treatment, the hospital provides three meals a a day from the cafeteria.
Treatment and Staff
All treatment at Mind Springs Health is evidence-based and client-centered, with individualized plans rooted in DBT, Motivational Interviewing (MI), CBT and the Matrix Model. Treatment is offered via group and individual therapy.
Some locations provide outpatient detox services and medication management support for co-occurring disorders—including trauma, PTSD, depression, anxiety and schizophrenia—are available on both an outpatient and residential basis, depending on the severity of the situation. Family therapy is offered as necessary and can be worked into any program.
Mind Springs Health is a comprehensive organization providing a range of treatment options for mental health and substance abuse issues to communities throughout Colorado, with psychiatric services extending to surrounding states as well. Their 12 outpatient locations offer straight up evidenced-based treatment within the added bonus of customized plans to meet every client’s needs.
