With the University of Colorado Denver, Metropolitan State University and several community colleges, the city has one of the highest percentages of college graduates in the country. The city has a youthful and cultural vibe with the Red Rocks Amphitheater, Denver Performing Arts Center and other creative venues to explore.
Denver is a paradise for outdoor recreation. There are more than 850 miles of paved and off-road trails that connect to hundreds of additional miles of dirt trails offering cycling, running, mountain biking and hiking adventures. There are actually 205 urban parks within the city itself. Denver is an hour away from the some of the best skiing, snowboarding and hiking in the United States. Finally, Colorado has abundant sunshine and averages more than 300 sunny days per year.
Our Denver program center is located in the Denver Tech Center (DTC). This location in Southeast Denver corresponds to the area surrounding the I-25 corridor of Greenwood Village, providing access to light rail public transportation, shopping and lots of wonderful restaurants.
Shadow Mountain Recovery provides sober living homes located in established and well-maintained neighborhoods in the surrounding area. Our clients participate in the active lifestyle that Denver has to offer which includes scheduled physical activity such as: yoga, weight training & boxing, snowboarding & skiing, hiking, camping and paddle-boarding.
Residential drug and alcohol treatment is the centerpiece of the Shadow Mountain Recovery programs. We offer both men’s and women’s programming for primary treatment and extended care treatment. These services are available at the residential campus located in a mountain setting east of Taos, New Mexico. We also provide 30 days of primary residential treatment in addition to detoxification services at the facility in Albuquerque, NM. Primary treatment services are available for men and women in Colorado Springs and Denver through a hybrid program that combines Day Treatment in addition to therapeutic sober homes and a weekly schedule for community based activities. This model is particularly effective for ease of transition, since the experience is experiential and grounded in activities of daily living. Shadow Mountain Recovery leads the way with innovative long-term addiction treatment in Colorado and New Mexico.
Extended care is a great resource for anyone who is learning to live a sober lifestyle but it is an especially important part of treatment planning for young adults. Early recovery has many new experiences to be explored and mastered while learning how to apply new skills. It is important to normalize sober activities. Extended care assures that clients have an accountability structure in which to grow while learning to navigate sober relationships and participate in activities of daily living and recreational opportunities that do not include drug and alcohol use. Developing a balanced and well-rounded lifestyle that includes informed self-care, adventure and fun is an important focus for extended care treatment within the Shadow Mountain Recovery continuum of treatment services.
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.
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.
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.
