Proven Drug & Alcohol Treatment Methods


Day Treatment

Shadow Mountain Recovery provides an excellent Day Treatment Program in Colorado Springs and Denver, Colorado. The day treatment program allows people to participate in treatment that is very similar to a residential model, for primary addiction treatment or while in the process of transition from residential to outpatient drug treatment. This resource is a great example of the consistency available as clients grow and develop within a continuum of care. The day treatment program consists of a 30 to 90 day treatment process. Our experienced team will evaluate which length of stay is the most appropriate for each client and create a personalized rehab program.

Intensive Outpatient Program

Shadow Mountain Recovery offers an evening Intensive Outpatient Program or IOP in both Colorado Springs and Denver. This program meets several nights per week from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The IOP is a program for clients that are in the early stages of addiction recovery and are able to function with day-to-day activities, but still need the structure of a therapeutic process to guide them and help stabilize while learning the skills for sustainable recovery.

Intimacy Program

Intimacy Program

Shadow Mountain Recovery Intimacy Program is a 12-week enhanced outpatient program designed to treat process addiction disorders. We offer a structured setting to provide stabilization and the integration of new ways of coping, thinking and living. The 90-day curriculum helps build a foundation of recovery for relationship, sex and intimacy issues. As with all Shadow Mountain Recovery treatment programs, the Intimacy Program provides an attachment model in a family-systems based, trauma-informed and gender-responsive care, which is grounded in a clinical process guided by 12-step principles.

Therapeutic Sober Living

Shadow Mountain Recovery is known for beautiful, gender specific, therapeutic sober homes. Each sober home is located in a well-maintained and established neighborhood around each of our Colorado treatment centers. Sober living is an important resource for early recovery. Colorado sober living options can be very different in terms of living environment and peer culture. Our Shadow Mountain Recovery homes offer spacious living quarters, quality furnishings and consistent staffing for a very comfortable and stable sober-living environment. The gender specific residence is a great resource for men and women, researching Denver sober living options (in particular), since there are limited and varied resources available in this area.


The disease of addiction often results in a profound effect on families. Anxiety becomes a constant part of daily life. Many describe the phenomenon of “feeling impending doom or like we’re walking on eggshells” and feeling powerless to affect a sustainable change.
