They have the absolute best therapists there!


My friend said that they were great at helping them to understand this disease. I cannot speak for this person as I have only been told about their experience.


Staff and clients were great. Got a tremendous amount out of the program; you get out what you put into it. I'm substance free now (5months)in large part to what I learned there. Only negative for...


A very good choice to begin the road to Recovery. Beautiful setting, professional, and healing vibes. Better than my other 2 experiences by far. Highly recommend!


It's pretty much a country club. The beds are extraordinarily comfortable, bathrooms are clean, rooms are quiet, and the BHTs do everything they can within the rules/their power to accommodate your re...

    Carolyn Ross, MD - Colorado Director for Eating Disorders

    Dr. Ross completed her undergraduate degree in Modern Foreign Languages at Purdue University and then was a full-time mother of her two older sons before returning to school to complete her Pre-Med requirements. She then went to the University of Michigan Medical School. Dr. Ross’s practice experience after medical school helped fuel her interest in understanding what makes people heal as she saw that most of her patients’ medical problems were related to lifestyle habits and the stresses of modern living. In searching for a better way to address these issues, Dr. Ross began to explore complementary and alternative therapies and the use of herbs and supplements for her patients. She then completed a residency in Preventive Medicine at Loma Linda University and set up practice in San Diego, California, where she eventually opened three women’s centers where she practiced primary care and office gynecology. Her women’s centers integrated the best of western medicine with complementary and alternative therapies such as yoga, acupuncture, chiropractic, and nutrition counseling. She developed and ran a weight management program for weight loss therapy that offered a holistic approach to treating obesity. During that time, she also served as the medical director of The Rader Institute’s inpatient eating disorder program.

    Heather Phillips, MA, M.Ed., LPC, CAC III - Clinical Director

    From a young age, Ms. Phillips always knew that she wanted to help people. Her passion to help others derives from her personal struggles in adolescence that she learned to overcome. “After I understood what recovery was, I realized it was my life’s goal to help those suffering from the disease of addiction and mental illness.” Ms. Phillips earned a Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling from Whitworth University in Spokane, WA. She also holds a Master of Education in Administrative Leadership from Whitworth University and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Gonzaga University. She is currently a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Certified Addiction Counselor (Level III) in the State of Colorado. Ms. Phillips has experience providing care in a broad array of treatment settings including residential psychiatric care, inpatient and outpatient substance abuse treatment, and providing treatment in institutional settings. She endorses an integrated view of treatment; one which honors the unique and individualized needs of each person and treating them with the utmost dignity and respect. In addition to her passion for working in the treatment profession, she is also an advocate for animal rescue organizations, anti-human trafficking campaigns, and considers herself an ally in the LGBTIQ community. Ms. Phillips is an adjunct instructor at a local university and enjoys sharing her passion for the helping profession as an educator and community speaker. Since living in Colorado, she has fallen in love with the beautiful terrain and most weekends you will find her hiking the many trails of the Rocky Mountains.
