Our care team

At Columbine Behavioral Healthcare (CBH), our care team takes an active role with you in your health and well-being. A variety of behavioral health professionals may be part of your care team, depending on your goals. 

Your care options

  • Individual and group counseling: We offer a variety of therapeutic counseling services, including individual and group treatment, providing the opportunity to look at how you’d like to change your life, examine what holds you back and help to get to where you’d like to be. At your first appointment, you and your provider will determine together whether individual counseling, group counseling or a combination is the best method of treatment for you.

  • Substance use treatment: We have staff members who specialize in substance use disorder services and offer substance use treatment focused on helping you identify and change addictive patterns that impair your ability to thrive. Through our Integrated Dual Diagnosis Treatment program, participants look at how feelings of anxiety, grief, depression, sadness and even joy create situations where personal substance use may be unhealthy. 

  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy: We have extensive experience with Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). Research has shown that DBT is effective in treating a wide range of issues, such as substance use, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and eating disorders. DBT involves: skills training groups, individual treatment, phone coaching and a consultation team. DBT develops a set of skills for mindfulness, stress management, tolerating painful situations, how to ask for what you want, creating boundaries and how to change the emotions you want to address.

  • Psychiatric care: We understand that behavioral health conditions may require medication as part of treatment. Our team includes medical providers who specialize in behavioral health and medication management to support your recovery. 

  • Wellness groups: Wellness Center groups are available for Axis Health System patients and their loved ones at a variety of locations. Groups teach core self-care skills, such as nutrition, exercise, interpersonal skills and stress management in a fun and engaging environment. These groups are free, and drop-ins are welcome. For details about the groups and schedule, call 970.335.2206.
