North Range Behavioral Health


The Basics

Colorado’s North Range Behavioral Health (NRBH) is a nonprofit that serves men and women who struggle with mental health, addiction and substance abuse disorders. NRBH’s home base in Greeley is an hour north of Denver, but its service area spans all of northeast Colorado. The continuum of care available at NRBH includes detox, transitional residential treatment, Intensive Outpatient (IOP), outpatient treatment and aftercare. The agency  encourages clients to begin the process of recovery right away. Clients can start adult IOP treatment at intake, for example, while awaiting placement at the adult residential acute treatment facility.

Treatment and Staff

Care begins with a social detox. Clients 15 years of age or older who need assistance with withdrawal symptoms are admitted to the NRBH clinical detox facility. Staff administer Suboxone for opiates and Vivitrol for alcohol. The clinical team at detox includes two psychiatrists and a doctor who oversee the process. The length of detox depends on the client’s needs and the severity of the addiction.

Adult and adolescent clients have a brief phone interview with the intake coordinator to begin outpatient treatment. Staff complete individual assessments and evaluations for clients. The goal at intake is to get clients on the wait list for residential treatment (if needed) as soon as possible. IOP is available in the interim to get clients started with treatment.

Clients stay in the TRT residential program for 45 days. The residence is a 20-bed facility where clients have one roommate. Food is included in the cost After clients have been there for two weeks, there is more individual counseling, reading and homework. Staff strongly encourage clients to look for work, though it is not a requirement. Treatment includes 20 or more hours of direct group or individual therapy per week. Clients attend four on-site 12-step meetings per week: two AA, one NA and one CMA (Crystal Meth Anonymous). At the two-week mark, clients are required to attend two more 12-step meetings off-site. After two weeks, clients attend six meetings per week.

Upon completion of the residential program, staff refer clients to either the North Range IOP program or outside treatment facilities to ensure there are no gaps in services. The IOP program, also known as True North, has a length of treatment of 12 weeks. Clients are required to complete nine or more therapy hours per week. The hours are dispersed over four groups that meet each week. The vast majority of IOP consists of group therapy and very little individual therapy. Groups meet for two hours and 15 minutes; there are a total of 48 groups.

A step down to regular outpatient treatment consists of four to three groups per week. Three groups run for 10 to 12 weeks. Clients then attend one to two groups a week, focusing on relapse prevention. Aftercare group is a free service after the step-down program. In the outpatient program, a client can be with NRBH for up to a year.

Psychiatrists on staff at the outpatient facility oversee medication management for clients. Treatment for co-occurring disorders is available in all the programs. Medical doctors, nurses, psychiatrists, therapists, case workers, probation and parole officers and CSACs make up the NRBH staff of 125 professionals.


NRBH provides walk-in testing 24/7, 365 days a year, including 18 different types of urinalyses and Breathalyzers. Crises services are also available around the clock.

The Family Treatment Program addresses family issues with clients who have mental health and substance abuse disorders. Supportive housing and help with parental issues are available.

The Drug Treatment Court provides court-mandated clients with mental health and substance abuse treatment.

Connections for Women is a program available to pregnant women with substance abuse issues who need help carrying their pregnancies to a healthy term.

In Summary

The breadth of services offered to adolescent and adult clients at North Range Behavioral Health allows staff to meet the needs of clients wherever they are in the recovery process. The outpatient services are led by a large team of clinical professionals who are equipped to provide therapy as well as medical care to clients. The residential program is longer than most other programs of its kind as NRBH prepares clients to transition into treatment with a stable foundation for recovery. Aftercare services are available to ensure long-term stability for clients progressing from the early stages of recovery.
