Construction is currently underway on the first building located on the Larimer County Behavioral Health Services campus.
Acute Care will open in fall 2023 and offer six levels of care for people in mental health and/or addiction crisis.
Larimer County Behavioral Health Services and SummitStone Health Partners, the contracted care provider, are offering monthly virtual lunch and learn presentations to share information about the new facility and answer questions.
The Lunch-And-Learn presentation is offered monthly from July to November on the third Wednesday of each month from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. To register, visit larimer.gov/behavioralhealth.
The unique approach to acute care will allow people in mental health or addiction crisis to access multiple levels of care in one place. Once opened, the care and treatment provided will include:
• Urgent behavioral health care: available 24/7
• Two levels of withdrawal management (detoxification)
• Medical monitoring
• Drug treatment (MAT)
• Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU) – A short-term residential program for moderate to severe acute psychiatric crises or co-occurring crises.
• Short-Term Intensive Residential Treatment (IRT) – A short-term residential program for recovery from detox.
• Coordination of care
• Bridge Clinic for transitional care
• Pharmacy and laboratory services on site
The facility will be located at 2260 W. Trilby Road in Fort Collins. Completion of this project will provide all members of the community with access to critical mental health and addictions crisis services and create nearly 200 jobs in Larimer County. Construction is expected to be complete and the facility open to the public in fall 2023.
