GRAND JUNCTION, Colo (KREX) — The new 18-bed facility is open to residents of 18 different counties struggling with a mental health conditions.

The rooms are similar in scale to dorm rooms with two beds, a closet, and a nightstand. A lunch area, recreation area, and individual rooms for people to get help are also included in the new unit.

A VA support specialist says these new additions will help ensure veterans get the care they need.

David Muniz, with the VA of Western Colorado, says, it “will provide a place where they can come and receive care for substance abuse and alcohol and it provides a higher level of care than normal outside treatments do.”
