Involuntary Holds – if someone is a danger to others or him/herself

It may be necessary to take someone incapacitated by mental illness, drugs or alcohol to a facility for professional evaluation and treatment – even if the person is unwilling. This may have to be done to protect that person or others who are threatened by his or her behavior. While difficult for all involved, involuntary treatment can lead to very positive change.

If you think this is necessary, call the North Range Behavioral Health crisis phone line: 970.347.2120 (press 2). The on-call crisis counselor will evaluate your concern and explain the options and resources available.

Trauma or Disaster Aftermath

emergencies-traumaWe all use the word “trauma” to mean a highly stressful or disturbing event or experience. But trauma is really a unique individual experience. Longer-term reactions include unpredictable emotions, flashbacks, strained relationships and even physical symptoms like headaches or nausea. While these feelings are normal, some people have difficulty moving on with their lives.

Disasters such as floods and fires – events we are very familiar with in Colorado – can often cause trauma.

If you are experiencing trauma, we are here to help. Call 970.347.2120, and we can help assess your situation, help get you on the path to recovery, and/or link you to resources that can help.
