Responding to the gap in Mesa County’s walk-in crisis services after the Western Slope’s crisis center recently relocated to Montrose, West Springs Hospital will now offer walk-in mental health and addiction crisis services seven days a week, 23 hours a day at its campus on North Avenue and 28 3/4 Road in Grand Junction. Walk-in services began on November 5.
Anyone experiencing a crisis or emergency related to mental health or addiction can walk in or be brought to the crisis center at West Springs Hospital anytime except between 4:00-5:00am. Assistance can also be arranged 24/7 by calling the West Springs Hospital assessment and admissions line at 970.201.4299.
The Women’s Recovery Center is a 90-day intensive drug and alcohol rehabilitation program exclusively for women. With the lease at the current facility set to expire a new building that will improve delivery of innovative services will be constructed.
Medication-assisted treatment (also known as MAT) combines counseling and other recovery supports with prescribed medications to help reduce the cravings and withdrawal symptoms that come from stopping opioid use.
