Behavioral Health

Behavioral health care is available to patients who are established with First Choice at our South Valley Health Commons, North Valley Health Center, Edgewood Regional Health Center, Rio Grande High School-Based Health Center and at South Broadway Health Center. Our behavioral health care consists of evidence -based treatments for:

  • Mood issues (depression, anxiety, trauma)
  • Alcohol/ Substance Abuse
The counseling sessions typically last 20-40 minutes each, for a total of 12-15 sessions.  This care is offered in collaboration with Sangre de Cristo Community Health Partnership. For an appointment, please contact the health center where you are established. Our providers may also make referrals to other behavioral health resources available in the community.
