Bernalillo County CARE Campus Licensed for Crisis Triage Services


The Bernalillo County Department of Behavioral Health Services is proud to receive a permanent crisis triage center (CTC) license from the New Mexico Department of Health. The county is the second recipient of this CTC licensure in the State of New Mexico, and the only active license within the county.

The crisis triage center is located at the CARE campus at 5901 Zuni Rd SE, formerly known as the Metropolitan Addiction and Treatment Services center. This license will allow the county to provide crisis stabilization services. These services help close the gap between the needs of patients with outpatient and acute care needs.

These new services are designed as a step-up or step-down in care, as it helps people before their crisis gets to the point where psychiatric hospitalization is needed or as they transition from a hospital back into the community.

“I am proud of the work the Department of Behavioral Health Services is doing to continue to fill the gaps in the behavioral health continuum. This licensure is a big step for the community, and is a great collaboration with the University of New Mexico, the State of New Mexico, including Turquoise Lodge, and other essential providers. I look forward to seeing the positive impact this will have on the community,” said County Manager Julie Morgas Baca.

The campus is currently accepting patients referred by UNMH, and other behavioral health service providers. The further expansion of services will include opening an outpatient behavioral health clinic.
