Wellness, Recovery, Peace of Mind

Southeast Health Group (SHG) is a private nonprofit corporation providing mental health, substance use disorder, primary care, physical therapy, peer, and wellness services to six rural and frontier Colorado counties – Baca, Bent, Crowley, Kiowa, Otero and Prowers. These counties cover a total of 9,600 square miles with 46,727 people.

SHG offers a full range of health care services to adults, children and families through its three companies:  Southeast Mental Health Services, Partnership for Progress and Wellness Works. We provide 24-hour, seven-day-a-week behavioral health crisis intervention and assessment. A discounted/sliding fee schedule is available and no one is refused service due to the inability to pay.

Our caring and competent staff is skilled in the head-to-toe assessment and treatment of a variety of physical and emotional problems, including depression, addiction, anxiety, trauma, children’s issues, relationship issues, and severe and persistent mental illnesses, such as schizophrenia.  We take an integrated approach and coordinate care with other medical providers in the region.

DOT Drug Testing Services now available.  Call for more information.
