Women's Rehab & Recovery Program
Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment for Women
Peaks Recovery Centers offers drug and alcohol addiction treatment services for adult women of all ages. The women’s center offers a nurturing environment for individuals in need of supportive drug and alcohol addiction treatment services, including the treatment of most co-occurring mental health disorders. The women’s addiction treatment center is entirely gender specific and includes safe and beautiful gender separate housing. Factors that contribute to the disease of addiction are different for women than for men and gender specific care provides the women in our treatment program the opportunity to address issues that affect the female gender differently.
The differences in gender matters! Even though men are more likely to abuse substances than women, women are just as likely to develop a substance use disorder and are more susceptible to craving and relapse by comparison. There are plenty of similarities between men and women, but there are also significant differences. The impact of substance use disorders on women can range significantly from the biological effects of alcohol and drug abuse on the body, the functional impact, direction, and treatment plan of substance use disorders. Women are twice as likely to develop a Major Depressive Episode with severe impairment in the early ages of adulthood and these gender driven statistics matter when delivering care to women.
All women attend group and individual therapy sessions throughout the day depending on their present level of care authorization. All women receive routine psych evaluations by either our physician assistant or medical director. Depending on the level of care authorized by your insurance, clients will continue with routine therapy services throughout the day or will participate in gym time, outside fellowship meetings, yoga, acupuncture, and more.
As part of the residential treatment experience, clients diagnosed with co-occurring mental health issues--such as bipolar, anxiety, depression, and other trauma-related responses--will meet with our medical staff to address medication management. Women are more likely than men to suffer from anxiety and depression and having medical psychiatric support in consideration of the greater co-occurring psychiatric symptoms and disorders is necessary for women with substance use disorders. Therapy for women with co-occurring disorders such as depression and stress will focus on the development of coping mechanisms to help manage their co-occurring issues.

Food and Transportation
When authorized for residential addiction treatment any and all food and transportation needs are generally covered by your insurance company. Once the women in our program are clinically stable they step down into lower levels of care. These levels of care include Partial Hospitalization (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient (IOP) programming and transportation is included at these levels of care within the structured sober living fees to ensure that each client’s busy schedule can be accommodated. Food is covered by the family at :0/ week or is covered by the individual if and when they get a job.
All transportation during treatment is provided to all necessary outside community events in Colorado inclusive of the sober living fees once your loved one steps down into the ambulatory PHP and IOP treatment setting.
