Adult Recovery Services

Adult Recovery Services

At the Mental Health Center of Denver, we believe that recovery and well-being are possible for everyone. Each person comes to us with a unique set of treatment needs, goals, and challenges, and our Adult Recovery Services are committed to providing those served with the right treatment at the right time.

About Our Services

Using our nationally-recognized Recovery Needs Levels Instrument, we match people with the treatment that best meets their needs.

Psychiatric Services

Some people may only need quarterly visits with their psychiatrist to review and renew their medications.

Outpatient  Services

Others, are seen as outpatients and regularly attend group and/or individual therapy sessions in addition to psychiatric treatment.

Enhanced Outpatient

Some receive therapy services but still benefit from assistance with housing, employment or other services in the community.

Intensive Case Management

Our community treatment teams assist those who’ve just begun their road to recovery and wellness, and still need assistance with housing and access to community resources.

High Intensity Treatment

Our highest level of service is for those who have recently been homeless, hospitalized, or may have criminal justice system involvement and or substance use issues.

Trauma-Informed Services

Building on the key elements of trauma-informed service delivery: trustworthiness, safety, choice, collaboration and empowerment, we provide services that are welcoming and create an environment of healing.

In treatment we use the Trauma Recovery and Empowerment Model (TREM), which is a group-based program designed to promote recovery from trauma.
