About the Program: The Cordilleras Mental Health Center is home to two distinct ؼ programs, Cordilleras Mental Health Rehabilitation Center (MHRC) and Cordilleras SUITES, where intensive mental health services are provided in a safe, welcoming environment so that people can focus on their individual recovery. We provide a longer-term recovery program within a supportive, structured, and secure inpatient environment designed to help clients prepare to move to the community and/or lower levels of care.

Cordilleras MHRC is a 68-bed sub-acute program that employs a multidisciplinary staff of psychiatrists, internal medicine, licensed therapists, registered nurses, recovery specialists, rehabilitation therapists, peer support specialists, and a dietitian.

Cordilleras Suites is a 49-bed recovery-focused Adult Residential Facility (AFF) that employs residential counselors and social workers who provide individualized treatment planning, comprehensive case management, as well as crisis intervention/harm-reduction services. There is a focus on access to community-based social, educational and pre-vocational/vocational services and activities.

Services at both programs are designed using Telecare’s Recovery- Centered Clinical System (RCCS). This system emphasizes choice-making skills, harm-reduction techniques, and strives to awaken the hopes and dreams of the individual. The RCCS emphasizes “no force first” practices. Staff work with individuals within their cultural dynamic in building independence and self-responsibility in order to foster their recovery and successfully transition back to lower levels of care.
