House managers are trained to contact on-call clinical staff any time that a problem may arise. Most clients in the transitional program are enrolled in intensive outpatient treatment.
At Colorado Recovery, psychiatric care is provided to adults diagnosed with schizophrenia bipolar disorder, schizoaffective disorder, depression with or without psychotic features, dual diagnosis of mental illness and substance abuse, and other psychotic disorders.
Every new Colorado Recovery client gets an immediate and thorough psychiatric evaluation by one of our psychiatrists and a therapist which includes gathering full details on the person’s life, their experience of illness, prior treatment efforts, assessment of physical health and substance abuse, and social and vocational functioning. We involve close family members in the process of gathering this information. After assessing the client to get a full clinical picture about a schizophrenia, bipolar diagnosis, or something else, the treatment team gives an initial diagnostic impression and makes recommendations about further assessment and treatment. The client’s previous diagnosis may change at this point or later, after a period of further assessment.
A careful evaluation of the correct diagnosis and most effective treatment plan is central to the success of care at Colorado Recovery.We provide psychiatric rehabilitation services throughout the treatment process, with an emphasis on getting clients back to work or to schooling.
Psychiatrists are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to respond to any questions or problems. Other psychiatric services we provide include daily medication management, weekly blood laboratory tests, daily meetings with psychiatrists, toxicology substance screens, and mental status examinations.
