Your Care Options

    Primary health care

    primary care provider is someone you and your family can trust for all your health concerns. They see patients of all ages. Your provider knows and understands your health history and potential risk factors. This gives them a more complete picture of your health and how to best manage it. Our primary care provider can see you quickly for a same-day sick visit. In addition, they can give vaccinations, diagnose new illnesses, manage chronic conditions, promote preventive care and protect your overall wellness. 

    Mental health care

    Our mental health care providers can help you feel better. Choose from a variety of counseling and psychiatry options. First, we offer individual, family and group therapy. Second, your options include psychiatric assessment and medication management. Finally, you can get support to make healthy lifestyle choices. We treat mental health concerns such as: anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, bipolar disorders, post-traumatic stress, phobias, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and more. Your care team may include mental health specialists, psychiatric providers, case managers, vocational specialists and peer specialists.

    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. 

    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.

    Dental health care

    Our dentist and hygienists are skilled and ready to serve you. First, we encourage preventive care with regular dental exams and cleanings. Also, we teach patients about good hygiene. Second, our teams offers emergency and restorative dental services. For example, this includes x-rays and fillings. In addition, our team offers extractions (tooth pulling), root canals and crowns.
