The Crisis Walk-In Center provides immediate access to mental health care and substance use emergency services, such as withdrawal management, close to home in Montrose, Colorado. 

We offer a Crisis Stabilization Unit as well as a Walk-In Clinic open to all ages. If you or someone you love is struggling with a behavioral health crisis, please walk in and our staff will see you quickly and confidentially.

Clients may come to the Crisis Walk-In Center with a family member or friend for support. We know this support is critical. Once someone’s needs have been assessed by our staff, they will be assigned to a care team or unit, as necessary.


If it is determined that someone needs to stay overnight in our Crisis Stabilization Unit, visitors are typically allowed for one hour a day. Staff can advise on the best time for your loved one. On occasion, the treatment team may discourage visitors depending on the needs of the client. Please note, a stay in our Crisis Stabilization Unit is limited to 5 days.

If someone has been admitted for withdrawal management or detox services, visitors are not allowed due to the short duration of these stays.

Please call 970.252.6220 if you have specific questions.

CMH Crisis Walk-in Center in Montrose

The new Crisis Walk-In Center, which is in partnership with Colorado Crisis Services, includes these services:


A Walk-In Mental Health Clinic which offers easy access to mental healthcare for people of all ages who are in crisis. No appointment or insurance needed. CMH’s system of care gets people the care they need when they need it. This decreases the unnecessary use of hospital emergency departments, jails, prisons, or other settings not clinically appropriate for behavioral health emergencies. The Walk-In Clinic offers a variety of effective ways to support clients throughout a crisis episode, including transitional services that ensure a safe return to the community and continued support.

A Crisis Stabilization Unit which provides short-term (3-5 days) bed-based stabilization to individuals aged 12 and older who are experiencing a severe behavioral health crisis. Crisis assessments, group and individual therapy, psycho-education, psychiatric and medication management, peer support, case management, and discharge planning are all provided. Clients are connected with ongoing treatment to help prevent relapse. Clients may be either voluntary or cooperatively involuntary and can remain safe in a secured unit.

Withdrawal Management which provides 24-hour non-hospital detox in a safe environment staffed by substance use disorder professionals. The program serves individuals who are intoxicated, in withdrawal, or at risk for withdrawal, and who are appropriate for a non-hospital model of detox.
