The Rose House

The Rose House Lafayette Colorado

The Rose House is a residential treatment center for women ages 18 and above. It is a dual diagnosis clinical focus for the treatment of mental health and substance abuse. We specialize in the treatment of trauma and how it effects women to find long-term recovery.


Founded in 2008, The Rose House is a residential treatment facility for adult women struggling with substance abuse, mental health concerns, and co-occurring disorders. Located in Louisville, Colo., a Boulder suburb, the Rose House offers partial hospitalization (PHP), intensive outpatient treatment (IOP), outpatient treatment (OP), and aftercare. Detox services are not available on-site.


Upon admission, each client receives a complete psychological evaluation, the results of which inform her individualized treatment plan. During the week, clients attend 12-step meetings in the community and participate in 30 hours of individual and group therapy. The treatment team utilizes an evidence-based and trauma-informed approach that combines cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), art therapy, addiction education, and relapse prevention training. The Rose House also offers holistic treatment options, including equine therapy and acupuncture.

Residential treatment typically lasts three months. Toward the end of their stay, clients work with staff to develop an aftercare plan, which may include stepping down to the center’s PHP, IOP, or OP treatment options. The facility also operates multiple sober living facilities, which offer an increased level of freedom along with structure and support.


According to The Rose House’s website, the center’s treatment team includes a medical director, a PhD-level psychologist, a registered nurse, master’s-level therapists, licensed professional counselors, certified addiction counselors, psychiatric technicians, and two therapy dogs.


Surrounded by mountain views and hiking trails, The Rose House’s 16-bed facility offers clients a homelike environment for recovery. Residents live together in a large, prairie-style mansion with a fireplace, communal kitchen, a yoga and stretching room, and an outdoor swimming pool. Each resident sleeps in a twin bed and shares a bedroom with a roommate. As part of the program, participants are given daily access to a local health club, and staff are available to provide guidance on nutrition.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY has not received any reviews from this facility’s alumni; however, Lisa, the one Google review to identify herself as a former client of The Rose House, submitted a rating of five out of five stars.[1] In her review, she reported nine months of sobriety and credited the facility’s program for her success. “Rose House saved my life!” she wrote.


Lucy, the sole loved one surveyed by at the time of this writing, praised the facility for the treatment her daughter received. She specifically highlighted the center’s individual programming and its continuum of care. “As a mom, I was comforted by the step-down and after care programs. I needed to know my child not only had learned how to be sober, but could really manage day to day in her new life,” she wrote.

Reviews submitted to third-party sites were mixed. On Google, Pamela characterized the staff as “skilled” and “well trained” in her five-star review. However, Carley and Amy each gave The Rose House just one star, citing problems with the center’s leadership and its lack of detox services. Joe, the sole reviewer on Yelp, gave the facility a one-star rating, detailing a series of billing problems. “Be warned they are predators,” he wrote.[2]


The Rose House’s 90-day treatment program is priced at $54,500. One month of care costs $19,500, and one day of treatment is $2,800. According to the facility’s website, The Rose House is an out-of-network provider and works with some PPO plans, including those from Aetna, Cigna, and Humana.

  • The Rose House is a life saver! The staff has an enormous amount of experience and truly cares about all clients past and present. The Rose House is an Out-of-Network provider and works with a variety of insurance PPO plans. They are not a Medicaid/ Medicare provider. The Rose House verifies insurance benefits as a service to clients. I appreciate their willingness to provide crucial care to clients with or without insurance. I would highly recommend The Rose House!

  • Still awaiting a refund of a facility that took advantage of a tough situation. My daughter has aspergers depression and anxiety and attempted suicide before going to Rose House for help She became more severe and agitated and did not receive all care described in pamphlet and paperwork. I'm still waiting for an itemized receipt ..been almost four months waiting. They live to send an invoice of the total bill but nothing itemized. The facility said they couldn't work with my daughter and allowed her to sign out even though that's illegal because I have guardianship. When I picked up my daughter she was sitting on the porch with her belongings...alone. Horrible.

  • To add to my last review, be careful when you get in the van to go to all your meetings and events. Back then the van didn't have working seatbelts. We were going around a corner way to fast on ice roads and I slid on the seat and hit my head on the side window, knocking me silly for a moment or two. And if you happen to have any lung disease or asthma I definitely wouldn't recommend this facility because smoking is allowed everywhere out side of the "House". Cigarette butts are everywhere around the grounds...completely disgusting!!!
    Today my daughter graduated from The Rose House! I am so grateful to the staff that caringly and completely brought my daughter to sobriety! My daughter knew she needed help and was ready to do the work. She had multiple issues and The Rose House addressed her situation individually and guided her back to 'life'! I am so proud of the way she progressed through the program. Everything about The Rose House is supportive. As a mom, I was comforted by the step-down and after care programs. I needed to know my child not only had learned how to be sober, but could really manage day to day in her new life. Please excuse my exhilaration on having a sober daughter and allow me to say, 'We have come out the other side of this 'situation' smelling like a Rose!' I was once where you are now, searching for the right treatment. I remember the 'situation' before finding treatment and I wish your loved one the health and happiness like my daughter found at The Rose House. I can't say enough good things about the exceptional level of care my daughter received there. Thank Goodness For The Rose House!!!
