Larimer County names new behavioral-health campus ‘Longview’

FORT COLLINS — The new behavioral-health campus in southwest Fort Collins finally has a name.

The Board of Larimer County Commissioners decided on “Larimer County Behavioral Health Services of Longview” for the campus, being constructed on the northwest corner of Taft Hill and Trilby roads.

The Longview name was selected from a list of options it received from Larimer County Behavioral Health Services based on feedback that the department got from stakeholders and members of the community. It refers to Long View Farm Open Space, which is located near the campus, as well as the long journey toward mental wellness and recovery.

Acute Care, the first building on the campus, is scheduled to open in fall 2023. It will provide treatment for individuals experiencing a mental-health and/or substance-use crisis.

The county has contracted with SummitStone Health Partners as the care provider for Acute Care. Services there will include 24/7 behavioral-health urgent care, withdrawal management (formerly known as “detox”), medication-assisted treatment, a short-term residential program for moderate to severe acute psychiatric or co-occurring crises, short-term intensive residential treatment, care coordination, an on-site pharmacy and lab services, and a Bridge Clinic for transitional care.

Future plans for the campus include a facility dedicated to adolescent care and other services related to behavioral health.
