ABOUT HARMONY FOUNDATION

Set on a picturesque 43-acre campus in the Rocky Mountains, nonprofit Harmony Foundation offers a continuum of treatment services for adults ages 18 and older who are struggling with chemical dependency and co-occurring concerns, including gender-specific residential treatment and a transitional program. A specialized program track for young adults, ages 18 to 23, is also available. If necessary, on-site medical detoxification is available.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Treatment begins with a 20-minute phone assessment followed by a physical examination. The detox program generally lasts three to 10 days. After detox, clients may either enter the Harmony Foundation’s residential program or an outside intensive outpatient program.

Residential program elements include individual and group therapy, peer evaluations, and recovery education groups. Afternoons are set aside for educational offerings and weekly meetings with a primary therapist and case manager. The dedicated program for young adults includes experiential therapies, such as weekly outdoors activities, mindfulness training, and performance art therapy. Medication management is also available to those struggling with co-occurring mental health concerns.

Family treatment is an important part of the work done at Harmony Foundation. The facility offers a family weekend for up to two loved ones at the end of each client’s stay, as well as monthly family day workshops for anyone who would like to attend.

Following residential treatment, clients may enroll in the three-month transitional care program, in which they engage in a peer-based community and participate in ongoing 12-step meetings. Clients also take classes in wellness, nutrition, and relapse prevention techniques while pursuing work and volunteer opportunities.

A “ReCommitment to Recovery” program is also offered to those who have relapsed within one year of discharge from a residential treatment program. ReCommitment to Recovery is a short-term residential program that focuses on the issues that led to relapse. Upon graduation, all alumni have **lifetime access to weekly aftercare meetings.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

Staff includes addiction counselors, recovery house managers, doctoral-level licensed psychologists, mental health therapists, and case managers.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

Clients share a room during detox and residential treatment, and vegetarian diets can be accommodated. Holistic therapies include yoga, acupuncture, and meditation. The 20 individuals polled by Best-rehabs.com at the time of this writing overwhelmingly praised the facility’s accommodations and amenities, offering an average rating of 4.8 out of five stars for this aspect of the facility.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

Alumni gave mostly positive feedback. Of the 14 alumni polled by Best-rehabs.com at the time of this writing, 11 were positive, though with some caveats. Alumni tended to praise the facility’s staff, the cleanliness of the facility, and the effectiveness of group counseling. Collectively, 10 alumni polled by Best-rehabs.com gave an average rating of 4.2 stars for the staff’s level of training and experience and 4.5 stars for the facility’s group counseling. “I was blessed with excellent staff, both councilors and medical. There was great peer support,” alum William wrote.

One alum credited the facility with saving his life, and others expressed gratitude for the long-term sobriety they achieved. Many clients also praised the facility’s atmosphere and scenic environment, which several alumni described as spiritually enhancing. “Spiritual place if you love the outdoors,” alum Paul wrote. Clients also praised the facility’s detoxification services and its affordability.

However, some reviewers were critical of certain aspects of the facility, citing its price as a weakness. “It was a little over priced,” alum P.J.S. wrote. “But a good stepping stone.” Other isolated criticisms included a lack of leisure time and over-reliance on 12-Step.

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

The six loved ones polled by Best-rehabs.com to date also tended to praise the facility. Four loved ones gave an average rating of 4.5 stars for the facility’s holistic treatment offering and 4.75 stars for its overall cleanliness and upkeep. These four loved ones also gave an average four-star rating for the facility’s affordability.

Like alumni, loved ones also repeatedly praised the facility’s scenic surroundings. “Beautiful facility with comfortable accommodations, and a variety of daily activities,” one anonymous loved one wrote. In addition, isolated praise was given to generous family visitations and healthy meals. Loved one M.O.D. described staff as “sincere and respectful and caring.”

  • Allowed the family to be involved in the treatment plan and was also very accommodating on visitation days to allow additional family to visit. None that I can think of except for there wasn't a lot of parking around the facility. My niece went there for addiction to pain killers. Thanks to the harmony foundation she has remained drug free, has lost weight and is back in college. I just really liked how the family was included in the treatment plan which helped us to continue to keep providing the support she needed to continue the recovery process after she left the facility.

  • Beautiful facility with comfortable accommodations, and a variety of daily activities. Healthy meals are provided, and a good atmosphere to get your life in order. Would have preferred a stinger push for family counseling, but each patient and their family history is different. They focus on the root issue and why the dependency developed in the first place. How to create a healthy lifestyle, and what your new lifestyle needs to look like to avoid the substances that got you here in the first place.

  • Atmosphere and overall care program were good. A little bit dated. I think the most important thing is to visit ahead of time, talk with staff about the program and options, etc. Know everything possible ahead of time and don't assume every rehab is the same.

Thank you Harmony for helping me find a new way of thinking and living and encouraging me to develop my own path to Sobriety. Your treatment center saved my life!!! "Living Well Is The Best Revenge"

  • This facility was amazing. Set in the valley of the rocky mountains, you can't get any closer to nature. It forces you to focus on yourself and your recovery. The counseling and detox were great!

  • A friend of mine is now 2 years sober and it helped her a lot. It was in a great location in the mountains; it was serene. However, it was costly.

  • This place is BEAUTIFUL!!! Awesome. spiritual, place. They offer a program for family, where they come for like 4 days and we go to classes and meetings together. Their techniques helped me to realize what the root of my problem was. Their art and spiritual groups(these came from people outside of the employees of the facility) were ok, but the staff SUCKED!

  • My son attended Harmony last year at this time. He has now been sober for one year. I thank Harmony for giving me back my son. I attended the therapy sessions with him and was so impressed with their operations, staff and therapists. From the first phone call of inquiry to taking him home, both the staff and the patients were so sincere and respectful and caring.

  • I have been clean going on 22 months and my counselor pretty much told me I wasn't taking the program seriously. I ended up getting kicked out with only two days left in the program. On his recommendation. It was the worst experience of my life, but I got the last laugh.

  • I was blessed with excellent staff, both councilors and medical. There was great peer support. I received over a 3rd of the mail while there giving me support from friends all over the country. Had over 27 people at my graduation, supporting me. Harmony helped me make giving up the addiction to alcohol, one of the easiest things I have ever done.

  • Nested in the natural beauty of the Rocky Mtns. Saw Elk grazing most every day. Spiritual place if you love the outdoors. Top notch if you've never been through the 12 Steps, or need the fellowship of AA to get sober. If you've already climbed the steps once or more, this place probably won't help much.

  • It was a place where we were not treated as prisoners. We had cabins that we shared with one other person, excellent councilors and wonderful food. We had a different AA group come in each week, and chair one AA meeting.
