Intensive Residential Treatment
Overview: Arapahoe House intensive residential treatment services offer a flexible length of stay and individualized care. Its purpose is to provide 24 hour / 7 day a week treatment to individuals whose substance use and / or co‑occurring mental health disorder has resulted in disruption of their emotional, mental, physical or socioeconomic functioning. Its focus is on stabilization and preparing for ongoing treatment in a lower level of care, such as outpatient services.


Services include: Individual, group and family therapy, recovery planning, recreational activities, educational groups, positive social support, 12‑step meetings, and case management. Family services include a weekly education program for families and the possibility for individual family therapy sessions.


Outpatient Services
Overview: Arapahoe House offers a variety of outpatient services that range in intensity and frequency depending on the needs of the client.

Services are adapted to meet the needs of the individual client and include individual, group, and family therapy.


Areas of focus in group therapy may include: knowledge about addiction and the effects of substances on the mind and body, relapse prevention, education and treatment with family members, grief group and skills building.
