What to Expect

Our Process

From the moment you enter our program you are welcomed as an individual, not a statistic. We recognize that addicts and alcoholics are some of the most intelligent, artistic individuals around. High intelligence and abstract thought pose, on occasion, some difficulties in society including anxiety, depression, fears etc. 

Most addicts at one point saw alcohol or drugs as a solution to their anxiety, fear or confidence, a way to quite the mind for example, that quickly turns for the worst and does not get better if you continue using. 

That’s where we come in. Every person that works at HPR has a personal tie and drive to seeing success in others. Our team of progressive addiction professionals have the experience and passion to invest into each person who comes through our doors.

The First Step To Healing


The decision to fight an addiction to drugs or alcohol is complex and often intimidating or frightening; however, it’s also something to be celebrated as that individual can look forward to beginning the journey to recovery and a better quality of life. Detox is just the first part of addiction treatment. Detox on its own is usually insufficient for a successful recovery. Addicted people need to treat the psychological part of their addiction.

Our medical professionals monitor health issues in the new patients. They also take a history of drug, medical and psychiatric issues. The collected information helps us devise a long-term recovery plan for the patient.

We stabilize patients with medical and psychological therapy. This helps us prevent any harm to the patient and avoid feelings of withdrawal in them. Our doctors also prescribe addiction treatment medications, if needed to alleviate any discomfort or withdrawal symptoms.

In the final step, we prepare patients for treatment. Doctors provide their patients with a run-through of the treatment process, and what they should expect from it.


Residential Inpatient

Residential treatment allows individuals to experience 24-hour care while pursuing therapy to confront the challenges of conditions related to substance abuse (alcohol and/or drugs). At Healing Pines Recovery, individuals are able to access the highest level of care than can be provided. Residential treatment of drug or alcohol addiction is often more successful than detox and/or outpatient care alone. Being in a program 24 hours a day, 7 days a week may seem daunting, but this sober environment is essential to battling drug or alcohol addiction. People who go through residential treatment have a better chance of getting to long-term recovery and staying healthy. There are many benefits of residential treatment, but they are easily summed up in these three categories.

A regular, daily schedule may seem very restricting at a distance. However, the structure of routine allows each person to focus on getting healthy. It eliminates gaps of down time that allow cravings to grow, and gives stability to the rougher moments of recovery.  Clear boundaries and accountability help people with addiction redevelop willpower and keep commitments.

Most every person with a alcohol or substance dependency has felt isolated, guilty, and misunderstood. The stigma of addiction make many people afraid to seek treatment. Being able to get to recovery without the pressures and judgments makes the process easier to deal with. At Healing Pines Recovery, everyone you meet during the day will understand the pain and suffering addiction causes. Fellow patients share their own stories of struggle and success, and addiction professionals act as knowledgeable and compassionate guides. Whenever you’re at a tough moment, someone will be there to help you through it.

Freed from the obligations of work, school, friends, and family, a person at Healing Pines Recovery can completely focus on themselves. This may sound selfish, but people with addictions must learn how to stop caring for the addiction and start caring for themselves again. Residential treatment is more than getting sober. People address their past issues and develop new healthy habits. The structure and the community provide an environment where they can heal body, mind, and spirit. The ultimate goal of Healing Pines Recovery is a successful and sustainable recovery.

The leadership and staff were committed to my success.

Paul is a man of integrity which flows through his team. I have been to other recovery programs and HPR stands far above them all. The small group structure offers a more intimate and personalized experience. This was so much more beneficial to my recovery than facilities preaching a "one-size-fits-all" solution to larger and fragmented groups. It was like having personal and knowledgeable therapists dedicated to me for a full month! They went out of their way to understand the root of my challenges and construct a path for improvement that is unique and relatable to me. This was a huge benefit!

It saved my life, in every sense.

I spent a month at Healing Pines Recovery. The actual location itself is unreal. A beautiful cabin lodge, with gorgeous scenery. The rooms are large, queen beds, very comfortable! Great bathrooms with great showers! There is a pool table, slam jam, (Christine! 😉 frisbee golf, and daily access to a nearby gym. The property also has a pickle ball court that was used daily, Zoey the counselor beat us men constantly!

My experience with Healing Pines Recovery has been wonderful.

My husband was their client, and they helped him be able to help himself. He is doing amazing! I think the combination of counseling, physical labor, meditation, AA, and just the beauty of the place itself all had a very positive impact on him. They really cared about him, and that did not stop just because he came home. Also they have counseling for the families and it has really helped me a lot. Heather is awesome! I thank God that we had them in our lives when we were most vulnerable.

We wanted to share our gratitude to the staff.

Our son was under the care of Healing Pines recently and we wanted to share our gratitude to the staff. There were many challenges in his pursuing treatment, and thankfully Paul and Heather C helped us navigate all of them skillfully with patience and compassion.

You'll get your life back!

Healing Pines Recovery is/was instrumental in setting me up for long term success in my recovery journey. I've been to treatment centers in the past and HPR is nothing like anything I've attended before. They're very small, intimate, and hands-on approach to recovery was exactly what I was looking for when seeking treatment. I knew that a large, one size fits all program like those offered by many other treatment centers in Colorado wouldn't provide me with the help I desperately needed. Paul and his Team are incredible and I would highly recommend HPR to anyone who needs help starting their recovery journey. Big shout out to James for all of his guidance during my time at HPR. His grace, knowledge, understanding, and direction were/are key to my continued success in recovery. One HUGE piece of the puzzle I love is the after care I've received from HPR... I am in constant contact with Paul, James, and many other staff members through the their alumni programs and it has helped me so much with life after HPR. This program was truly a miracle in my life and I know it will be for many other men struggling with addiction and/or alcoholism. You'll get your life back!

This is truly a great recovery facility.

My learning experience here was something I’ll take with me throughout my whole life. The staff here will always be a part of my family and I am beyond thankful for everything they have done and continue to do for my well-being.

I can't speak more highly of Healing Pines Recovery & Addiction Center.

It is located in a beautiful Colorado location with lots of outdoor activities and fresh air. They have a very knowledgeable and professional staff that goes above and beyond to meet your needs.

I couldn’t have been at a more amazing place to begin this journey.

Seriously an amazing place. Everything from how beautiful the house and the property it sits on down to every person staffed there was nothing less than perfect. More than highly recommended in every sense. If you’re reading this and trying to find the right place for treatment and recovery I would absolutely look no further. Everyone’s recovery is different and we all need a comfortable place with people we can trust through this battle, healing pines understood that everyone’s path is different and they 100% cater to that. I couldn’t have been any luckier with finding Healing Pines. I won’t go any deeper and start to thank everyone there individually, But I want to express my gratitude to everyone on the HEALING PINES TEAM. Without you all, my path in sobriety would not look anywhere near the way it looks today. Seriously from the bottom of my heart thank you!
