Additionally, we provide safe and structured sober living to provide the ideal environment to build the foundation for a purposeful, life long recovery.


Red Rock Recovery Center, located in the Denver suburb of Lakewood, Colo., is a long-term residential addiction treatment center for young adults. Clients participate in a transitional rehab program that incorporates dual diagnosis treatment for individuals struggling with co-occurring substance use and mental health conditions. The program utilizes traditional and experiential therapies as well as supportive housing. Red Rock Recovery Center is part of the 11 percent of Colorado facilities that offer long-term residential treatment.

Detox services are not available on-site, but Red Rock’s staff will assist clients in beginning treatment at another appropriate facility if detox services are needed.


Though each program is tailored to the individual needs of a client, Red Rock’s treatment is based on the 12-Steps, one of 180 Colorado facilities to employ this particular modality for treatment. Clients participate in individual counseling sessions and the program also offers cognitive behavioral therapy with holistic treatment modalities, which is meant to treat trauma, relapse prevention, address family dynamics, and provide life skills. The program emphasizes peer accountability and involvement in a local 12-step group. Clients also work on holistic recovery through practicing yoga or strength training. Staff also offers assistance with legal issues and job placement.

Partnerships with local area organizations allow Red Rock to offer equine and adventure therapies such as backpacking, rafting, and biking. The facility also offers creative arts and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing.

The facility prioritizes communication with and support for family members, according to its website, providing an intensive weekend program with opportunities to address codependence and to learn about recovery. There is also a sober living house in Denver for alumni of the program.


The treatment team includes a board certified psychiatrist, a registered nurse, social workers, and master’s level therapists. A yoga instructor with certification in trauma-informed practice is also on staff. A number of program alumni serve as program leaders as well.


The center offers transitional housing for up to 30 clients, with separate quarters for men and women. Clients have access to an off-site gym. Photographs on the Red Rock site feature an outdoor jacuzzi, along with modern kitchens and bathrooms and spacious yards. Residents are able to go on outdoor excursions together.

  • My son, Ryan, was a patient at Red Rock for about six months. The treatment was very expensive and within five months after he left Red Rock, he related once, overdose and died.

  • Red Rock saved my life. Because they integrated the 12 steps in the programming I was able to build a sober network outside of the treatment center. This set me up for success when competing the program.

  • Red Rock Recovery Center was where I continued my treatment after attending a residential facility. I have never felt more accommodated, safe, and understood. I would recommend this treatment center to any friend or family member that's ready to experience a new freedom. This facility saved my life, and I am so privileged to continue to watch people grow and strive in this environment.
    This is been the worst experience I have ever had. We entrusted Red Rock with our son who suddenly became mentally unstable. They transported him or had him driven to a psychiatric facility on escorted where he was left unsupervised..
    Red Rock Recovery Center target client are young adult men and woman struggling with substance abuse mental illness, and deficits in life skills. We focus systemically by inspiring each client individually to develop a new sense of hope through sobriety and learning personal strengths to balance life demands. In addition, our clients learn leadership skills and engage and involve themselves in community for a positive and fulfilling future. Red Rock Recovery Center may struggle at times with consistence in communication between staff and the client. I have worked residential substance use programs for the past 12 years in various roles. In my experience clients provided 90-180 days treatment programs seem to have better outcomes. it is my opinion this is the result of clients remaining in treatment programs long enough to develop new habit patterns and learn to work the basics of a 12-step program. The Red Rock Recovery Program provides a life skills component to enhance stability.
    Strengths: Small class size. However, to much idle time between classes. I went thru Treatment at this Facility 10/13/2015 I will Have 4 Years Clean and Sober The program Works.
