ABOUT ASPENRIDGE RECOVERY

Situated amid the Rocky Mountains in Lakewood, Colo., AspenRidge Recovery provides residential and outpatient treatment for adults struggling with substance abuse, co-occurring disorders, and process addictions. Detox services are not provided on-site at the center, which is among 6.8 percent of substance abuse treatment facilities in the state accredited by The Joint Commission.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

AspenRidge Recovery’s approach is rooted in 12-step methodology, as well as holistic and evidence-based modalities. There is no standard length of residential treatment, but most clients remain in the residential program for an average of 90 days.

During this time, they participate in 30 hours of weekly therapy – a mix of individual and group counseling. Process groups address various topics including trauma and family issues. Programming also covers life skills development, physical health, nutrition, spirituality, and self-esteem. To aid in their recovery, clients spend time outside participating in equine therapy, hiking, and engaging in other experiential therapies.

The facility also offers specialized treatment tracks for co-occurring disorders, women, and trauma. These 90-day programs use a variety of treatments, including eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), cognitive processing therapy, inner child therapy, and family systems therapy.

The intensive outpatient program (IOP) is a less structured treatment option. Most counseling occurs in a small group setting and clients may attend between one and five days a week in the evenings between 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. Random urine tests are administered twice per week.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

The facility’s treatment team includes medical and nursing personnel as well as licensed social workers, master’s level therapists, and certified addiction counselors.

Reviews about AspenRidge Recovery

When I sent my son to Aspen Ridge it was completely out of desperation to save my sons life. He had been battling his demons for half of his young life. It goes like this, institutions jail and death. It doesn’t always go that way. After seeing my child hitting his rock bottom the hardest thing I ever did was let him go and know that God’s will would be done. The hardest thing I ever had to do, but it turned out that it was the best thing. My son was cared for and was taught and guided through an amazing journey that he still continues to do He will by the grace of God have 3 years sober in January and owe everything he learned there to incorporate what he has done to create a life beyond his wildest dreams. Aspen Ridge, I want to thank you for giving me my beautiful and loving a caring son back

  • I was there for alcohol dependency and the change of lifestyle that I needed was learned in sober living. I did not consider myself a patient for psychotherapy. Lack of information under the programs controls.I fought through it, completed the program and it's now not my concern. Just an FYI.

  • This facility is deficient in aiding the recovery of its patients. Has several court appointed patients and is not a good IOP program. We were self pay and discharged early due to no help and were charged $1200 admin. Fee for three sessions. Do not go here if you need help.
    Please....find another program at another facility. This facility will not assist in getting a patient better. They take your money and you are on your own.

  • Aspen Ridge was there for me when I couldn't find a way to live life sober. I went through both their inpatient and outpatient programs. Their staff has supported me through my journey of recovery and means the world to me. In their inpatient program we had scheduled therapy, 12 step meetings, and were responsible for our life skills. The level of structure, support, and flexibility all helped me grow during the program. I had access to psychiatric help, a primary therapist, as well as a nurse. After my time in their inpatient I went into their five day a week outpatient which had group therapy on weekday nights. In addition I also had one on one sessions with my therapist. All of these are just details of how I went through the program, but the part that sticks with me is that I am sober and happy now. That wasn't something I thought I could be when I first started with them, and can't imagine life without it anymore.

  • My name is Blake and I am an addict. If you feel like you have no way out.. If you feel like you are hopeless.. If you feel like your pain in your past is an anchor and you're sinking fast. If you feel like you're never going to make it. Then you're in the right place. If you stumble upon this program, God has a plan for you. Your past does not have to Define your present. When you're at a point of desperation and you feel helpless. This is the place to get help. I have never seen a treatment center with this many success stories. You can be the next.

  • What an incredible experience. It was the hardest yet most rewarding experience of my life. 4 attempts at 30-day programs led me here, and now I have my life back. THANK YOU!
    Absolutely horrible experience, just downright disgusting representation of how a rehab should be ran or what kind of people work in the industry

  • I came to Aspen Ridge completely broken and not knowing how to change my life. I didn't know how to interact with people or how to love myself because of my alcoholism and drug addiction. The counselors and staff here showed me how to start over again. They introduced me to therapy approaches that spoke to me and my difficulties and they brought me to AA. Now I have a positive attitude towards life, valuable relationships with my family and friends who are sober. Aspen Ridge helped me grow into a loving person which I am grateful to be.
    AspenRidge Recovery saved my life. They helped me get to the core issues that were causing me to keep relapsing. They helped me stop using and become a better person.
    The staff here at aspen is absolutely wonderful. They are all so caring and help with any situation possible. They have showed up in my life 100% and have inspired my road to recovery. They are extremely professional and gave me the tools to get sober and how to continue my journey of recovery I highly recommend aspen for anyone seeking treatment

  • Aspen Ridge Recovery saved my life. After three rehabs and three trips to jail I refused to believe I was an addict/alcoholic and my life was unmanageable. Aspen Ridge Recovery relieved me of my denial and gave me the tools and solution to getting my life back on track. The treatment team and housing managers go above and beyond on all levels. I received extraordinary counseling daily and spent weekends exploring all that Colorado has to offer. After three months I began their sober living program for outpatient care while working an amazing new job. I could not be happier with my life, health, new sober community, and the relationships I have again with family and friends. Thank you again to Aspen Ridge Recovery!

  • Strengths: Incredible array of activities from quality addictions and mental-health counseling to hikes in the mountains to seeing pro basketball games to attending young peoples 12 step conferences. Weaknesses: They don't do too much holistic stuff beyond yoga and mindfulness work. 90-days of really focused treatment that also gives you a ton of real world access and practical experience is the way to go. AspenRidge figured that out and does a great job at it.

    My name is Jeremy and my wife and I had a daughter that was a client at this facility. Though I cannot speak to the treatment experience as a whole, I have sent my daughter to several programs in the past. I have been a part of a couple family weekends at these facilities and with other counselors so this was not our first experience. What separated our experience from the others before, was the counseling. Their kindness and knowledge is what made that weekend a success for us. Our 16 year old daughter also attended family weekend, and the therapists' attention to her needs also far exceeded my expectations of a typical counselor. We have never spoken with someone that we did not know who made us feel so comfortable and capable of really sharing things we needed desperately to talk about. I have never been so pleased with an experience like our time with AspenRidge. I would recommend them highly as a drug an alcohol rehabilitation service. Thank you Jeremy and Autumn

  • Aspen Ridge is one of a few rehab facilities I've attended in my journey to get sober. I can say in my experience it is the best one I've attended. They were by far the most caring, compassionate and understanding facility. The housing staff is very accommodating and knowledgable in what they do. The treatment team is top notch. The groups were fun and informative. The fact that they're based in the 12-Step programs is huge. They really drove home what I was dealing with and what I had to do to stay sober. I had a lot of fun but also learned a lot and made a lot of growth. I'd recommend this place to any and everybody.
