Facility was clean and maintained nicely. Great family participation.


Strengths: Step 1 and building recovery capital. Weaknesses: Aftercare. This place saved my life after numerous attempts to get sober. Eternally grateful to the staff and the program


Excellent vision, leadership, and staff. Programs for various need and life stages, conscious and innovative program expansion. Our son enrolled in the Solutions Program for aftercare following a 60 d...


Hello, this weekend is good for me, for the reason that this moment i am reading this wonderful educational post here at my house.


They lie to you coming in about their program and how it works. The program is a mess. I am sober to this day with no thanks to that program at all.


The son I know is back and, a man I didn't know is present. He has become more than he ever was. He's strong, decisive, accountable, loving, kind and working on his recovery. Jaywalker is a 12-Step ba...

I think one of the best things for my loved one was the availability of extended care after he left the facility. There was a sober house in Carbondale and then he received support from Jaywalker wh...

Great staff. Great accommodations and great food. Recovery rocks thanks to Jaywalker Lodge.


Jaywalker Lodge changed my life and I am forever grateful for that. If you are an 18-40+ yr old male with 30 days under your belt, get yourself to Carbondale. I really can't say enough how grateful ...

I found the emphasis on physical activity and service work to be quite effective in my case. It has been essential in my recovery to once again feel good about myself physically. When I got to Jaywalk...


I attended the Lodge from Oct.\"05\" to Feb. \"06\". Been clean and sober since. Greatly due to the fact that Jaywalker has functions for the alumni so we can stay connected. Jaywalker is a huge part ...


Jaywalker Lodge was my saving grace. I\'ve always loved the outdoors and being adventurous, but my addiction stripped me of those things. Jaywalker Lodge taught me how to enjoy all of those things a...


Incredible staff and facilities located in a beautiful mountain setting. Jaywalker has given me the tools and confidence I need to be a productive member of society. I have long term recovery and mor...


Not enough structure . Lack of training and education regarding techs. Not for those who do not wish to regularly engage in rigorous physical activity, lack of communication among staff and parents, ...

Areas of Focus
Use the Colorado Model

Jaywalker Lodge and Solutions Programs have developed a model of care that revolves around what William White, MA referred to as the Recovery Management Model. At its core is community, and the belief that for treatment to be effective, some portion of it must take place in a real life community setting.

Experiential Approach

Clients at Jaywalker Lodge are motivated about their recovery; and engage on a daily basis with their peers to create and maintain an active, caring community of sober people. The program combines a rigorous clinical curriculum with a variety of mountain-based activities – the treatment milieu at Jaywalker Lodge is built upon honesty, accountability, and service to others
