Pathfinders Recovery Center, Lakewood Philosophy

At Pathfinders Recovery Center, we are committed to helping addicts overcome their drug and alcohol addiction. Our team of highly qualified clinical and medical staff have been working with clients struggling with addiction for decades. Many of us have been through the fight against addiction ourselves. We know just how difficult this time can be and how important it is to be surrounded by a supportive, positive environment during early recovery. With the knowledge and experience to help our clients fight their battle against addiction, Pathfinders has the most effective rehabilitation program in the state of Colorado.

Areas of Specialization

  • Individual Therapy
    This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.

  • Aftercare Support
    Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.

Review by Contributors


Pathfinders Recovery Center is a drug and alcohol addiction treatment program with multiple locations in Scottsdale, Ariz., and Lakewood, Colo. Building off more than 25 years of experience, the center makes use of supervised medical detox and holistic, evidence-based programs that range in length from 30 days up to an entire year.


Treatment begins with an initial screening and, where necessary, medically monitored detox to alleviate any withdrawal symptoms. Programming is geared towards treating individuals struggling with addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders.

Following their initial assessment and detox, clients then move on to tracks of 30, 60, 90 days, or one that goes six months to a year. Programs help clients overcome their issues by combining therapeutic individual and group therapy, medication, and training in skills development. Longer stays offer opportunity to learn skills in budgeting and financial management, and for career readiness and GED prep courses.

Program graduates are encouraged to attend 12-step meetings and find a local support group.


Pathfinders is led by two clinical directors - a licensed marriage and family therapist and a certified addiction counselor - and has multiple primary therapists on staff.


The facility is situated in a residential area of Colorado and has a maximum capacity of 12. Residents are expected to keep their space clean, though further details on the facility’s living arrangements and related offering are not provided.
