In Colorado Springs, the mountains are so close and easily accessible. This allows us to participate in the mountain lifestyle Colorado is famous for. Clients take part in a variety of recreation, diverse artistic interests, cooking, art skills classes, music and more. Some of the physical activities include a regular exercise schedule, indoor rock climbing, hiking, laser tag, bowling, skiing, and batting cages (to name a few).
Colorado has abundant sunshine and averages more than 300 sunny days per year.
Shadow Mountain Recovery is dedicated to the treatment of alcohol and substance use disorders. Our detox hospital is staffed by medical and mental health providers and provides 24-hour medical monitored care for acute detoxification needs, utilizing the bio-psycho-social model. Our facility provides acute treatment to individuals in need of detoxification.
Residential drug and alcohol treatment is the centerpiece of the Shadow Mountain Recovery programs. We offer both men’s and women’s programming for residential treatment. We provide 30 days of primary residential treatment in addition to detoxification services at the facility in Colorado Springs, CO. Residential Treatment 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.
Extended Care provides a structured, supportive setting for men and women who are transitioning from residential treatment back into the community. Individuals progress through drug addiction treatment at various rates, so there is no predetermined length of treatment. However, research has shown unequivocally that good outcomes are contingent on adequate treatment length. Generally, for residential or outpatient treatment, participation for less than 90 days is of limited effectiveness, and treatment lasting significantly longer is recommended for maintaining positive outcomes.
Our day treatment program provides a focused structured curriculum of individual, cognitive behavioral, family, and experiential therapy. This form of treatment provides an outstanding transition from residential to outpatient treatment following the step down of a continuum of care. The day treatment program consists of a 30, 60, and 90-day process, or longer according to the individualized needs of the client. This program also allows people that might not have the funding to pay for residential care through insurance, to obtain treatment that is very similar to a residential model. Our experienced assessment team will evaluate our clients on whether on what length of time is the most appropriate for each client and create a personalized individualized treatment program.
This program meets four nights a 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 and accountability of a therapeutic process to guide them and help stabilize their life away from addiction. This also provides a step down approach from our day treatment program.
Therapeutic sober living homes have been created for people that are attending the day treatment program. They are highly structured homes that follow the day treatment schedule. In the evening they follow an evening schedule and end each night with a wrap up therapeutic community meeting. The therapeutic homes are to provide a treatment like setting atmosphere during the evening hours. The therapeutic sober home is also staffed on a 24-hour basis 7 days a week.
