   Adults Therapy and Rehabilitation

We provide individual, couples, family and group therapy for all ages.

We provide counseling, therapy and group therapy on an outpatient basis to treat individuals and families with a wide range of emotional, social and psychiatric needs using evidence-based therapies. In some cases, case management services provide linkage to other services in the community. If medication is needed, our psychiatrists and prescribing nurses can help, with an easy-to access pharmacy near by. Other programs include our crisis line, acute emergency treatment (in-patient), supported housing services and victim services. Our outpatient services include:

Young Adults

Teen Substance Abuse

Our Adolescent Substance Abuse Treatment program works with teens and their families to help break the cycle of addiction with the support of the family. These special program helps families to understand the nature and severity of the substance abuse, family dynamics, communication styles, and ways to eliminate self-defeating substance-abuse behaviors.

If you or someone you know is struggling with substance abuse, we can help. We serve both adults and adolescents struggling with addiction issues — including drugs, alcohol, medications and substances — with comprehensive services that lead to recovery.

A leader in dual-diagnosis treatment

Since 1977, the Intensive Outpatient program has also been effectively treating individuals who are dually diagnosed; that is, those who are challenged by both mental illness and addiction. As the first outpatient program in Colorado to integrate treatment for both chemical dependency and mental health issues, we focus on treating each individual's underlying mental illness and/or substance abuse problem at the same time. This fosters a more successful recovery. Our programs are "evidenced-based," which means that they have been proven to work.

Older Adults 60+

   Older Adults 60+

We provide an array of outpatient services that are tailored to the unique mental health and/or substance use needs of men and women 60 years of age and older. Our goal is to preserve the strength and dignity of our senior population while enhancing their quality of life.

Individual and Group Therapy

Licensed masters-level clinicians provide individual, couples counseling, family and group therapy, and substance abuse treatment for a wide range of mental health needs. A Seniors Group is held twice monthly, covering topics such as positive thinking, self-calming skills and aging gracefully.

Senior Peer Program

Our peer-to-peer program, loosely based on the Center for Creative Aging’s “friendly visitors program,” trains older adults to provide outreach and support with other older adults. This approach provides the personal touch and assistance that makes all the difference to an isolated older person, as well as to the peer.

We can provide services in the nursing home, at one of our offices or, in some cases, in the consumer’s home. We also partner with the consumer’s family, helping them better understand the types of problems their loved one is experiencing as we identify services that can support both consumer and family.

Services in Nursing Homes

For older adults living in nursing homes, we provide on-site counseling services as well as pre-admissionmental health evaluations. For more information on nursing home services, please call 303 730 8858.

Community Outreach

Arapahoe/Douglas Mental Health Network offers education classes and programs on mental health issues. Our Speakers Bureau provides knowledgeable speakers to businesses, places of worship, and other organizations on topics of mental health for older adults, as well as a variety of other subjects.
