Who We Are
The mission of Behavioral Treatment Services is to provide accessible, integrated, and inclusive behavioral health services supporting clients throughout the criminal justice system.
Behavioral Treatment Services was founded in March of 2014, after working as Intervention Clinical Services for almost 10 years. Starting out, BTS provided treatment for community corrections sites and alternative sentencing programs for criminal justice involved individuals. In January 2015, BTS acquired the Center for Change in Boulder and Longmont (now known as the BTS BoLo sites). BTS is an BHA (Behavioral Health Administration) licensed agency and approved Medicaid provider. BTS offers services at 3 outpatient sites. BTS partners with 2 local jails and 4 local community corrections sites to provide services. BTS runs 2 short term residential programs in Jefferson County. BTS also offers court referred services through state run programs (Bridges/Outpatient Restoration) for 7 counties in Colorado.
BTS was founded to provide quality clinical services to the community. BTS primarily hires Master’s level clinicians with specific training in addictions, mental health, and criminal justice issues. With over 50 staff, BTS provides a range of clinical services to the community. We strive to challenge and engage our clients to examine behaviors, beliefs, thoughts, and emotions in order to effect desired change.

"I started treatment at BTS as a very angry individual. I had little faith in the therapy process due to past experiences. However, as time went on, that outlook changed. My treatment started with required group sessions that really allowed me to move past my anger and start looking deep into my inner thoughts and beliefs. Once my group sessions ended, I chose to continue with individual sessions at BTS because of the connection that I developed with my therapist/counselor. I never in the past felt like the therapists I saw cared about me or took the time to relate to me or my story and that outlook finally changed with BTS. I am forever grateful for the sessions that I had at BTS for the two years that I did. They forever changed my life!"
