CSU Health Network
The Colorado State University Health Network is an integrated mental health and medical service serving both undergraduate and graduate students within a large land-grant university. It is accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA) for the doctoral internship in Counseling & Clinical Psychology and by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). The training of clinically-competent, ethical, self-aware, and culturally sensitive psychologists is central to our mission.
Presenting issues range from the expected developmental concerns of college students to severe mental health diagnoses, including psychoses and personality disorders. The most common presenting concerns are: stress & anxiety, mood disorders, relationship issues, eating disorders, sexual concerns, substance abuse, and identity development. General Services includes individual and couple psychotherapy, a vibrant group therapy program, and crisis intervention services. Specialty programs include the DAY Programs (substance abuse & other addictions), and the iTEAM (DBT informed post-hospitalization program providing integrated care to clients experiencing an acute mental health crisis).

Colorado State University is one of the nation’s top public research universities and an institution on the rise. In the last decade, CSU has produced record enrollment, built on all-time highs in student diversity and student success; record fundraising far outpacing ambitious goals; groundbreaking research driven by a highly productive faculty; a campus revitalized by a transformational building campaign; and, perhaps most important, an unrivaled learning environment where nine of 10 recent graduates say they would choose CSU again and rate their education as excellent.
CSU was recently ranked first among Colorado-based educational employers and fifth among all in-state employers in Forbes magazine’s “America’s Best Employers by State!”

Live in Fort Collins
Fort Collins, which has been home to CSU since the University’s inception in 1870, is a vibrant, friendly city of 161,000 tucked against the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Northern Colorado, just 60 miles from Denver. The city boasts a lively arts and cultural scene, shopping in historic Old Town, a strong economy, and is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. With more than 200 miles of bike paths and trails, easy access to the scenic Poudre River and majestic Rocky Mountain National Park, and within easy driving distance of Colorado’s iconic ski areas, it is a year-round paradise. Boasting a mild climate, thriving high-tech industry, and some of the best microbreweries in the world, it’s no wonder Fort Collins annually ranks among the most livable small cities in the United States.
The Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) Postdoctoral Psychology Fellowship at the CSU Health Network is designed to prepare individuals for a staff psychologist position in a university counseling service, with particular emphasis on psychologists wishing to specialize in issues related to alcohol and other drug use. The primary focus of this fellowship track is on obtaining specialized training working with both mandated and voluntary students as part of a multidisciplinary treatment team. The Fellow’s clinical hours will be divided between facilitation of psycho-educational workshops, national best practice programs such as BASICS (Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students), individual therapy with a focus on Motivational Interviewing, harm reduction groups, and participation in the Open to Change (OTC) multidisciplinary treatment team. OTC is an innovative program, designed for working with students who are in need of substance use treatment and includes two tracks. Track A is a shorter amount of time and less intensive. Track B includes multiple phases and an aftercare component. The Fellow will have the unique opportunity to participate in all aspects of this multidisciplinary program, which uses a combination of sanctions and incentives to encourage positive change, while providing individualized treatment, psycho-education, and compliance monitoring. Approximately 75-85% of students in the DAY Program are typically mandated through the university conduct system; however, the Fellow will also work with a growing voluntary population of students whose goals are abstinence or decreased use.
Additionally, the Fellow may participate in providing walk-in counseling support through our on-call counseling team (OCC), as well as crisis intervention and university-based outreach and prevention services including advocacy and social justice interventions. The Postdoctoral Fellow is involved in advanced clinical training experiences through both supervision and participation in didactic seminars. Fellows may have the opportunity to co-facilitate a seminar for less advanced trainees. Seminar participation is negotiated with each Fellow individually, based on experience and training needs.
