West Slope Casa providers have a century’s worth of experience in providing or arranging for substance abuse and behavioral health services in the public sector.
  • Substance abuse providers are an integral part of local culture, with longstanding presence in their communities and strong ties to community stakeholders.

  • A sliding fee scale is offered to assist in access to care; payment is accepted from clients and private insurance. Providers work very hard at acquiring additional funding from stakeholders, grants, municipalities, and other government contracts.

  • Persons with co-occurring substance abuse and mental health issues can be treated in an integrated fashion by all WSC providers, in cooperation with the three community mental health centers who are part of the provider panel.

  • Residential referrals are handled by local offices so clients will already know the clinicians they’ll be returning to for continuing care.

  • Providers have extensive experience in arranging for, and providing services to child welfare, temporary aid for needy families (TANF), and criminal justice populations, with long-standing referral and treatment relationships with local departments of social services, probation, and other human services agencies

  • The three community mental health centers manage section 8 housing and have experience in working with homeless shelters and housing authorities for those clients who need assistance with housing.

To get affordable Certified Addictions Counselor training on the western slope,
West Slope Casa developed the WSC Training Consortium (WSCTC).
  • The Consortium brings ADAD-approved training to Durango, Cortez, Grand Junction, and Glenwood Springs.

  • WSCTC provides an unlimited number of classes to member-agency clinicians for $75 per year.

  • Member agencies provide cash or training days to the Consortium, based on usage the previous year.

  • Non-WSC agencies are welcome to join. Clinicians from non-WSC agencies are invited to attend classes. For more information about the Training Consortium, CLICK HERE.
