Residential Treatment Program

Our mission and commitment is to create a structured and therapeutic environment that empowers youth to build healthy relationships, succeed in education, and be a productive member of society.  The youth in our program benefit from comprehensive and strengths-based treatment.  

We serve youth ages 12-21 with a variety of challenges. Some of these include:

  • Conduct Disorders
  • Mental Health Diagnosis
  • Department of Youth Corrections
  • Department of Human Services
  • Autism

We operate two residential lodges, two houses, and one group home. 

Program Guidelines

Placements must be at a minimum 30 days to receive the complete biopsychosocial assessment process and documentation. Within 72 business hours of placement an initial staffing will be held to discuss the goals for the assessment. An initial treatment plan is completed within 10 days of placement. In home assessment is started within 14 days of placement or sooner depending upon family needs determined at the first staffing. Additional staffings will be held at or near the end of the 30 day assessment to discuss recommendations and results of the assessment. 


Each lodge and house plan one off-campus outing per weekend. We collaborate with community partners and receive donated tickets to community events. Outings often consist of bowling, movies, and laser-tag. Twice a week the lodges and houses co-mingle to participate in team sports. Participation is determined by the staff and is dependent on safe behaviors on the milieu. Clients participate in physical activity daily which is often basketball and skateboarding.

Commitment to Our Community

While in treatment our residential clients have averaged over 1,500 hours of non-court mandated community service per year since 1999 (in addition to sentencing requirements). The organizations our clients have helped include:

  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Food Pantry at Trinity Methodist
  • List El Pomar Youth Complex
  • Rocky Mountain Field Institute
  • Kiwanis Club Service Projects
  • Pikes Peak Riding Center
Wrap Around Services

Therapeutic services will continue to be provided to the youth and family as the youth transitions home or to the next appropriate level of care, in order to ensure continuity of care. The transition services include individual and family therapy, family preservation, and skills training (Life Skills Parenting, Mentor, and Tracking). In home services recommended for the family will be provided by our Community Programs to ensure the highest quality of services and continuity of care to the client and family.
