Healing Pines Recovery
To offer unparalleled privacy and individualized care, tailored specifically for each client that enters our program; to partner with them and their families, to instill confidence, a support network, and recovery tools to ensure longevity and fulfillment in life/recovery.
We are stakeholders in the success of your recovery.
Our family and loved ones have felt the calamitous impact of addiction. We have personally experienced the power of addiction and the tumoil it unleashes on not only the addict but also on their loved ones. We know that high-quality treatment requires experienced professionals. We are aware that a “one-size-fits-all” approach doesn’t work. We also know that a newly recovered person needs continued support.
With this information, we have devised a sophisticated treatment program that respects and understands where each client is in their lives. The treatment plan is designed according to the addict’s life, instead of warping it. We believe that sobriety can be prolonged and continued only if it is naturally incorporated into a person’s life.
Our lodge and the ranch, huddled among the pines, is beautiful and provides solitude. We’ve created an environment where you leave your daily life behind and concentrate on healing and recovery.
We maintain a private and secluded healing environment; yet we are still close enough to the major cities, such as Denver, Boulder and Colorado Springs, in order to facilitate family visits and our Family Program.

Best At What We Do
Paul was born and raised in the beautiful state of Colorado. He went to college in California at CAL Poly Pomona, majoring in Mechanical Engineering. Being a person in recovery and always finding fulfillment in helping others succeed, Paul co-founded a treatment center in California with 4 other partners. Paul came back to Colorado to continue his journey in the field of addiction, and to share his vision for Healing Pines Recovery. “Colorado is such a magical place for me, it has everything a person could ever need or want. It’s natural beauty and peace lend itself for the perfect environment to really get in touch with yourself and others. Healing Pines is different, it’s real, you can feel it. What you see is what you get here. This is a safe place to dig deep and be vulnerable, to re-discover yourself, what the world has to offer and what you have to offer the world.”

Emma Rowe, MA, NCC, LPC
I am a therapist, but I am also a person, a wife, a mother, a daughter, a friend, and a participant in the same world you live in. I am a lover of cooking, baking, working out, most kinds of music, and books. I earned my Master’s Degree in Counseling with an emphasis in Clinical Mental Health from Adams State University. I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in English and Mass Communications with an emphasis in Public Relations from Colorado State University-Pueblo. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, a National Certified Counselor, a Reiki Practitioner, and an Acu Detox Specialist. I believe that each person has a solution as unique as their personality and therefore, I find it important to treat each situation individually without assumptions and treat the “whole” person.
