About Us

The Start Of Peaks Recovery Centers

We started Peaks Recovery Centers with the intent to change the standard for addiction and mental health treatment. Our goal was to start an innovative program for young adults, which shortly after transformed into a premier program for adult men and women of all ages. Starting our Colorado detox and addiction treatment program allowed us to play an integral part in the evolution of addiction and mental health treatment.

Through our constant effort to drive innovation and positive change, we found a way to provide individuals with the care needed to fulfill long-lasting recovery in their lives. By combining evidence-based methods with inventive new ideas, we’ve built a multidisciplinary treatment program that facilitates long-term recovery.

Mission & Vision

Peaks Recovery Centers is a true dual diagnosis facility offering gender-specific treatment for most adults 18 and older. Our 45 day model of care and curriculum utilizes inclusive language supportive of each individual’s mental health needs; addiction being just one example of a mental health issue we treat.

Our mission is to save lives and our vision is to disrupt our industry through quality of care. The behavioral health industry is fraught with value-destroying behaviors that challenge our future ability to provide quality care, but we did not come into this industry to be mediocre and hide behind hyperbolic mission statements. We are as exhausted as the family systems we treat when surveying the lethargic industry-wide outcomes. We can all do better, we must do better, people’s lives depend on it. 

Our Culture

“Nobody cares how much you know until they know how much you care.”
 Theodore Roosevelt

As part of our continuum of care, we provide the time and structure necessary for healing, giving our patients the best opportunity to develop lasting coping mechanisms and the life skills necessary for long-term stability and sobriety.
