Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update: Expanding Detox Capacity for Client Care

9:26 AM

Bernalillo County, NM – Due to increasing demand for social model detox of non Covid-19 clients, the Bernalillo County Department of Behavioral Health Services will be expanding bed capacity on the CARE campus, increasing the maximum capacity to from 20 to 38. The CARE campus will expand services to two administration wings to ensure proper social distancing, meet the greater need of the community and provide overflow for other locations. This expansion will allow clients on our existing detox floor to move into the repurposed administration space after their fourth day of services and thus opening up space for new client intake. The intake processes will remain the same where each client will be assessed on existing eligibility criteria and in accordance with our licensure prior to entry to the facility.

“The safety of all County residents is very important, and we are working hard to ensure we are still delivering these critical detox services, during this public health crisis. We are all in this together, and helping our most at-risk population is our first priority,” states Bernalillo County Manager Julie Morgas Baca.

The Bernalillo County Department of Behavioral Health Services is continuing to serve the community in the midst of this historic health crisis both on the CARE campus and in the community. We are continuing to maintain calm concern during this time for both the safety of our clients and staff while insuring we do everything we can to meet the Behavioral Health needs of the community.
