A local program that helps people deal with a crisis or detox is shutting its doors for the time being.

Mind Springs is shutting down its walk-in crisis center. The state of Colorado is shifting money statewide so funding will no longer cover walk-in services. The center will now be contracted by Rocky Mountain Health Plans. The closure means that neither law enforcement or community members will be able to drop people off anymore.

"For sure our existing clients will have an avenue to get support. If people are in need, they will reach out to the state-wide crisis line and a process will be created,” said the Director of Operation, Kathy Capps.

The center will close June 30th. People are now being told to call the state hotline instead of the crisis hotline. That number is 1.844.493.talk.
