Rehab at our facility usually follows a similar process for every client, beginning with an intake evaluation and ending with an aftercare plan.

Medical detox is the first step of addiction treatment for most clients of The Recovery Village at Palmer Lake. This crucial program rids the body of drugs and alcohol in a safe environment with 24-hour medical care.
- Transition to Further Treatment
After detox, clients can transition to inpatient treatment, or to step-down programs like partial hospitalization or intensive outpatient care, as is medically appropriate. During these levels of care, clients can receive medical support and mental health counseling, and they may participate in recreational amenities like yoga and equine therapy when appropriate.
When clients leave our care, they transition back to daily life with a solid aftercare plan that outlines the next steps in recovery. Our aftercare plans include maintenance medications, if applicable, and recommendations for sober living homes and support groups in a client’s local community.

Thank you Recovery Village at Palmer Lake for giving me the opportunity to take back my life and giving my family back their mother and wife.If you want a safe and highly professional program to help you understand your addition and implement the recovery tools you need to survive this confusing and devastating illness, you need to look NO FURTHER.Full disclosure: I’ve been to other treatment programs and all of them were helpful. However, there was something missing. I didn’t know exactly what until these past 45 days at Recovery Village at Palmer Lake. I received a new level of education, trauma therapy, meditation and mindfulness skills, plus yoga and so very much more. I also must mention the unlimited access to a full contingent of licensed medical professionals. The flow of treatment is perfect. Beginning with a thorough medically supervised detox, all encompassing inpatient program, with the (imperative option in my opinion) of Intensive outpatient program with a thoroughly detailed after care plan. The staff here has a very unique combination of passion, expertise and unparalleled professionalism. All without ever neglecting the sensitive nature we addicts and alcoholics arrive on their doorstep with.Personally, my past included some significant trauma events. I really was unaware of how much impact this “old history” had on my life and my inability to stop my use of substances. But they knew and they encouraged me to address this, and made it safe for me to do so. Not everyone has big traumatic events in their past, but the small things that we brush off as insignificant can turn out to be really important.This is a first class treatment program that I would highly recommend to anyone suffering from the misery this disease brings. Hope is real and attainable.I have an honest fear of failing but I absolutely know that I have the tools, resources and an in-depth plan. If I follow it, I WILL NOT relapse. Palmer Lake made sure that I’m prepared for life with the support in place to thrive.Sincerely,AllisonPS: Life can be fun sober! Thank you Sonny, Ashley, Amanda, Amanda, Cindy, Tony, Jessica, all the BHT staff, kitchen staff and everyone else dedicated to making our lives better!

This place was phenomenal. I learned so much about myself and my addiction. The doctors, counselors, physicians, overall staff was so helpful and nice. They took time to listen to me whenever any problem arose, which was only once. I grew so much as a person and so much spiritually as well. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

Excellent facility. Everybody is welcoming and very caring about your treatment. They make you feel very comfortable. The therapist truly care about your needs and most of the staff has been in the same circumstance so they do understand. I believe this is the best recovery place in the country. They not only treat the addiction but the underlining trauma that most likely led to the addiction. The level of expertise and care is unmatched by anybody else. It was a complete transformation for me and my life.
