Remembering Former CEO Scott Thoemke

scottAllHealth Network is saddened to hear of the passing of former CEO, Scott Thoemke, who retired in 2012 after 35 years of service to the network. During his tenure, the network purchased and grew a successful pharmacy business, started the first Judicial District wide Mental Health Court in Colorado, and built and opened one of the first Acute Treatment Units in the State.

Laurie Elliott, VP of Outpatient Services shared, “One of Scott’s greatest contributions to this organization was his vision to be on the cutting edge of new programming. Arapahoe Mental Health Center was one of the first mental health centers in the state to offer substance abuse services in addition to mental health services under Scott’s direction. He also initiated our commercial insurance business. What truly warms my heart is that he had 1 client on his caseload up until the day he retired.”

AllHealth Network is grateful for Scott’s contribution to our organization, our clients, and our team. We offer our deepest condolences to all who knew him.

ARVADA, CO (January 19, 2017) – AllHealth Network recently took significant steps to secure its future with an endowment-building 2016 Premier Incentive Grant! AllHealth Network, a behavioral health community center, received the $100,000 grant from Community First Foundation in December 2016 after making $1 million in new contributions to its existing endowment fund.

An estate distribution from the Bate Family Trust provided AllHealth Network with its single largest donation in its 61-year history. The organization’s board of directors decided to endow these funds to secure their ability to serve the community for years to come. Funds generated by the endowment will go toward low cost, affordable housing along with services and affiliated programs for people struggling with their mental health.

“By endowing the Bate Family Trust’s generous gift, we will ensure persons diagnosed with schizophrenia will be served with compassionate, clinical care as offered by AllHealth Network for many years to come,” said John Phillips, Chairman of the AllHealth Network Board of Directors. “We are thankful to Community First Foundation for stewarding these funds and strengthening our commitment to endowment building with their Incentive Grant program.”

AllHealth Network provides behavioral health care to more than 17,000 children, adults, families and couples in 10 unique settings. Services include counseling, psychiatry, crisis services, substance abuse treatment, vocational and social rehabilitation, an adult acute treatment unit and an on-site pharmacy.

Finding innovative and collaborative ways to strengthen nonprofits is a top strategic priority at Community First Foundation. Incentive Grants are available exclusively to Nonprofit Endowment Partners. The 2016 Premier Incentive Grant offered a $100,000 grant after $1 million or more in new contributions were made to an existing endowment fund. The Foundation also offered the 2016 Incentive Grant for contributions up to $40,000. Learn more about Community First Foundation's Incentive Grant Program

Self-Care in the Wake of Local Tragedies

As we move past the Thanksgiving Holiday and enter the month of December, the expectation is that we begin to prepare for more good times with family and friends during what is supposed to be a season of peace and joy. We begin to prepare for the holidays that best match our family values and cultural beliefs and we are hopeful for the future as we think of New Year’s resolutions.

This year, for many of us, our holiday spirit has been shaken by tragic events that have impacted our community. Just recently, State Trooper Cody Donahue was hit and killed on our local highway and a mother and her two young sons were found dead after being reported missing. We ask ourselves how such tragedy could happen in our own backyard. We wonder about the whys and the story behind the tragic news. Many of the questions often go unanswered and leave us just hoping that such events don’t repeat themselves.

Senator Linda Newell Recognized for Behavioral Health Advocacy

On Wednesday, September 14th, Colorado State Senator Linda Newell, an 8th year Senator representing Senate District 26, was honored as a recipient of the 2016 Community Behavioral Health Champion Award by the Colorado Behavioral Health Council (CBHC) and AllHealth Network.

Senator Newell 2016 Behavioral Health Champion Backsplash

Senator Newell has long been a strong advocate in the behavioral health arena, in 2014 sponsoring the bill that successfully created the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s Suicide Prevention Commission, which serves as the interface between the public and private sectors in establishing statewide suicide prevention priorities that are data-driven and evidence-based. Senator Newell also sponsored SB16-147 – legislation based on the Zero Suicide Framework which would make the Colorado the first state to implement an ambitious suicide prevention protocol for health care providers and state health departments, potentially bringing more dollars for mental health services into the state.

Overdose Awareness Day - August 31

overdose awareness

Each year we lose thousands of people from drug overdose globally. Some survive but suffer a permanent injury, with devastating impact to their families and friends. Our community is not immune. You may have seen it; it has happened to people around you. Tomorrow, it could happen to someone you love. Fortunately, overdose is preventable. Knowing the real facts about drugs and what to do when you see someone experiencing an overdose DOES save lives.

On August 31, we will be observing International Overdose Awareness Day, an opportunity for us to reflect on practical ways to prevent overdose in our community. The goals of Overdose Awareness are 1) to raise awareness of overdose and reduce the stigma of a drug-related death, and 2) to acknowledge the grief felt by families and friends remembering those who have met with death or permanent injury as a result of drug overdose. This is an international observance that is being recognized locally in Colorado.

Opioid misuse and overdoses affect individuals of all genders, races, income levels, and education levels. It impacts families and communities. It is important to recognize that addiction is a chronic disease that requires medical treatment; it is not a character flaw or failure of the individual. Though society may have preconceived notions about people who suffer an overdose, they are everyday people with families and people who love them. Here is a story map called Celebrating Lost Loves Ones that honors and celebrates those we have lost too soon due to this disease: Storymap

Resources for the community to learn more:

  • www.TakeMedsSeriously.org – a public awareness website promoting safe use, safe storage, and safe disposal of prescription medications.
  • www.stoptheclockcolorado.org – a website with information about naloxone, a medication that can reverse an opioid overdose, including where those who use opioids and their loved ones can receive naloxone to use in an emergency.
  • www.cdc.gov/drugoverdose/index.html - national health statistics and information for the public and for healthcare providers about opioid overdose from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Statistics to keep in mind:

  • Nearly 224,000 Coloradans misuse prescription drugs each year.
  • Annual deaths from painkillers (such as morphine, codeine, oxycodone, hydrocodone, methadone, and fentanyl) more than tripled from 2000 to 2013.
  • In 2013, 35% of all drug poisoning deaths in Colorado involved prescription painkillers.
  • There is a fatal overdose in Colorado every 9 hours and 24 minutes.
