North Range Behavioral Health Network
Behavioral Alternative Services In Community (BASIC)


The Behavioral Alternative Services In Community (BASIC) Team takes a unique approach to working with individuals who have legal involvement because of their mental health and/or substance abuse disorder. It is a fully integrated team with professionals from both the mental health and substance abuse fields. The staff is cross-trained in assessing and treating co-occurring disorders. 


The goal of the team is to reduce jail time for individuals whose mental illness and/or addiction has lead to involvement with the legal system. These individuals often languish in incarceration for longer periods of time than the average inmate due to their behavioral health issues. They often have housing issues and have few or no vocational skills and thus need more than outpatient therapy to successfully pursue recovery.


The program utilizes a thorough assessment of clinical, legal and community/client safety concerns followed by services in the appropriate level of care. An array of services is available in our level of care continuum. This includes: Crisis Stabilization Services (Detox and/or ATU), Transitional Residential Treatment (TRT), and Assertive Community Treatment team (ACT) to lower levels of care with adjunctive services like case management, vocational services, etc.


The outpatient services are delivered according to the Integrated Dual Disorder Treatment (IDDT) model of care and/or other treatment models as appropriate to meet the needs of an individual client. The Treatment Team consists of clinical staff working on BASIC, providers within the residential/treatment team and appropriate legal representatives from such entities as Probation, Parole, Weld County Jail or Pre-Trial Diversion. This group meets regularly to adjust the service plan so that adequate services are provided to ensure recovery and to maintain community safety.
