On April 14, the new Crisis and Recovery Center at 4643 Wadsworth Blvd in Wheat Ridge, will be the new home of the Crisis Walk in Center as well as Withdrawal Management (detox).
"We are thrilled to offer this new innovative approach to easy and convenient access for people in crisis. This new single point of entry will be a great benefit to our community", stated Dr. Harriet Hall, CEO and President of Jefferson Center. "Together with the incredible support of our community partners, Jefferson Center is not only filling a gap in critical substance use treatment services, but we are improving access to mental health care."
With the move, both withdrawal management and walk in crisis services will be together under one roof. The idea of the Crisis and Recovery Center came into focus nearly a year ago, when Jefferson Center took on the withdrawal management program on Wadsworth, previously operated by Arapahoe House. The idea was to offer law enforcement, hospitals and community members a single access point and better options for both substance use and mental health crises. Anyone with a behavioral health crisis can come to this new location, and receive either mental health or substance use services, or both. Both programs offer 24/7/365 services, and provide a one-stop shop for law enforcement and hospitals. Additionally, it is a safe, comfortable and convenient location for members of our community.
