The first 30 days at Serenity Peaks Recovery drug and alcohol addiction treatment programming for young adult women in Colorado begins with an extended, intensive clinical schedule. Everyday, Monday through Friday, each client will participate in morning and afternoon group therapy sessions along with their weekly individual sessions. Depending on underlying mental-health, trauma, and nutritional issues, clients may receive more than one individual per week including weekly psych evaluations. Other services include, art therapy, equine therapy, and recreational activities at Phoenix Multisport. Each client will also participate in at least two daily fellowship meetings within the community. We offer full gym memberships to our clients and they can expect 3-4 days of gym time per week depending on their schedules.

The goal within the first 90 days is to provide a safe therapeutic environment that addresses each client's addiction and mental health. A strong clinical start helps the staff better understand the goals of each client and make appropriate recommendations for their continued care. Depending on progress within treatment, each client will be required to hold a job no later than 45-60 days into their treatment.

The remaining portion of Serenity Peaks drug and alcohol addiction treatment program specifically focuses on life skills and the implementation of those skills. Each client will continue to participate in their morning group therapy Monday through Friday, including their weekly individual sessions.

After their morning groups we require that every client participate in resume building, filling out applications, and going out on job search. Every client will hold a job during their time within our program. When they receive their first paycheck they will start to budget their own weekly allowance for food and toiletries. We also require that each client take on their own cell phone payment. All other money earned from their job is saved and given to them in full upon completion of the program.

There are two possible solutions post 90 days of treatment at Serenity Peaks Recovery Center. The first option, if clinically appropriate, clients and their families might agree that more time is needed within our residential structured setting. Based on financial arrangements at the beginning of treatment, clients may continue with daily group and individual therapy sessions while continuing to utilize the supportive structure, continued transportation, and grow their savings account. When properly budgeted, individuals can save anywhere from $1,000 to $3,000 within the time period of our extended programming providing them with a solid financial foundation upon leaving our program.

The second option provides more autonomy as the client can stepdown into Serenity Peaks sober living home at a reasonable cost of $250 for the first month, $300 for the second month, and $350 for remaining months so long as space is available. As a requirement, however, clients are required to participate in outpatient services at Peaks Recovery Services community IOP program.

Each client will hold a job during their time within our program. When they receive their first paycheck they will start to budget their own weekly allowance for food and toiletries. We also require that each client take on their own cell phone payment. All other money earned from their job is saved and given to them in full upon completion of the program. Clients can expect to work between 24 and 35 hours a week.

If school is a greater priority than working a job, families are welcome to setup online courses for college or we can drive them to a local camps whether it be a community college or University of Colorado Springs Colorado. We can also help assist clients with securing their HS diploma or GED if that is needed.
