Substance use treatment

Substance use is a pattern of harmful use of any substance to alter your mood. Substances can include alcohol and other drugs (illegal or not) as well as some substances that are not drugs at all. Substance “abuse” can result because you are using a substance in a way that is not intended or recommended, or because you are using more than prescribed. If you’re concerned about your substance use, our experienced team is ready to help you with alcohol and drug treatment. Axis Health System has been the primary licensed provider of Substance Use Disorder (SUD) treatment services in Southwest Colorado since 1972.

You can get preventive dental care at this clinic. Our hygienists are skilled and ready to serve you. First, we encourage preventive care with regular dental exams and cleanings. Second, we teach patients about good hygiene. If you need restorative care, such as fillings, crowns, root canals, or extractions, our hygienists will help you get the care you need with a referral to our dentists at Durango Oral Health Clinic.

Care coordination

Care coordination is when someone helps you pull together the pieces of healthcare. This puzzle fits your unique needs.  The people who provide care coordination are called Community Health Workers.  They act as your personal guide in a number of ways. First, they help you find what you need in the healthcare system.  They match you to providers and make sure your needs and preferences are met. Second, they coach you to create and follow through on your health goals. Finally, they work to lower healthcare costs for people on Medicaid and Medicare.
