The Rose House Philosophy

The Rose House is a residential treatment center for women ages 18 and above. It is a dual diagnosis clinical focus for the treatment of mental health and substance abuse. We specialize in the treatment of trauma and how it effects women to find long-term recovery.

Areas of Specialization

  • Family Program
    Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.

  • Trauma & Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT)
    Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT) uses the brain’s innate ability to adapt to change in a healing way, essentially “retraining” the brain to respond differently to familiar memories of trauma or pain.

Review by Contributors


Founded in 2008, The Rose House is a residential treatment facility for adult women struggling with substance abuse, mental health concerns, and co-occurring disorders. Located in Louisville, Colo., a Boulder suburb, the Rose House offers partial hospitalization (PHP), intensive outpatient treatment (IOP), outpatient treatment (OP), and aftercare. Detox services are not available on-site.


Upon admission, each client receives a complete psychological evaluation, the results of which inform her individualized treatment plan. During the week, clients attend 12-step meetings in the community and participate in 30 hours of individual and group therapy. The treatment team utilizes an evidence-based and trauma-informed approach that combines cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), art therapy, addiction education, and relapse prevention training. The Rose House also offers holistic treatment options, including equine therapy and acupuncture.

Residential treatment typically lasts three months. Toward the end of their stay, clients work with staff to develop an aftercare plan, which may include stepping down to the center’s PHP, IOP, or OP treatment options. The facility also operates multiple sober living facilities, which offer an increased level of freedom along with structure and support.


According to The Rose House’s website, the center’s treatment team includes a medical director, a PhD-level psychologist, a registered nurse, master’s-level therapists, licensed professional counselors, certified addiction counselors, psychiatric technicians, and two therapy dogs.


Surrounded by mountain views and hiking trails, The Rose House’s 16-bed facility offers clients a homelike environment for recovery. Residents live together in a large, prairie-style mansion with a fireplace, communal kitchen, a yoga and stretching room, and an outdoor swimming pool. Each resident sleeps in a twin bed and shares a bedroom with a roommate. As part of the program, participants are given daily access to a local health club, and staff are available to provide guidance on nutrition.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY has not received any reviews from this facility’s alumni; however, Lisa, the one Google review to identify herself as a former client of The Rose House, submitted a rating of five out of five stars.[1] In her review, she reported nine months of sobriety and credited the facility’s program for her success. “Rose House saved my life!” she wrote.


Lucy, the sole loved one surveyed by at the time of this writing, praised the facility for the treatment her daughter received. She specifically highlighted the center’s individual programming and its continuum of care. “As a mom, I was comforted by the step-down and after care programs. I needed to know my child not only had learned how to be sober, but could really manage day to day in her new life,” she wrote.

Reviews submitted to third-party sites were mixed. On Google, Pamela characterized the staff as “skilled” and “well trained” in her five-star review. However, Carley and Amy each gave The Rose House just one star, citing problems with the center’s leadership and its lack of detox services. Joe, the sole reviewer on Yelp, gave the facility a one-star rating, detailing a series of billing problems. “Be warned they are predators,” he wrote.[2]


The Rose House’s 90-day treatment program is priced at $54,500. One month of care costs $19,500, and one day of treatment is $2,800. According to the facility’s website, The Rose House is an out-of-network provider and works with some PPO plans, including those from Aetna, Cigna, and Humana.

My name is Kristin and I am a graduate of the Rose House. I have actually gone here twice. The first time I did not take the program seriously at all, and was not at all willing to do the Step Down program after completing the inpatient program. My second time at the Rose House was different. I was looking at a very long prison sentence if I could not comply with my probation. My mom got ahold of the Rose House while I was in jail. I was accepted into the program immediately and was released from jail a few days later. I went straight from jail to the Rose House. I chose to come back to the Rose House because it was a place I was already comfortable at, and I knew they would advocate for me during my court cases. On my way up to the Rose House, I told myself I was going to put in my best effort and do the work. I had finally hit my rock bottom and there was no where to go up from there. I was fortunate enough to have the same therapist as I did the first time. He is probably the only therapist I have every felt comfortable talking to. And he is also the only therapist to get me to cry by bringing up difficult and sensitive things that I needed to talk about. I always put up a wall to protect myself and he could see right through them. Most of the day is spent doing group therapy sessions that are on specific topics. We learn different coping skills, we talk about spiritually, nutrition and wellness, equine therapy, and we often participate in art therapy. The Rose House understands that every client is different, and not everything we do in the program will work for everyone. They individualize the projects and writing assignments to the specific client when necessary, and this really helps show that the staff cares. The genuinely want every woman to succeed. The Rose House teaches us how to incorporate the twelve step program into our lives. We are taken to different AA or NA meetings every night. We are required to get a sponsor and meet with them once a week. After about 60 days spent in inpatient, we are allowed to get out phones back. This was exciting for me, but I was also nervous at the same time. I know I was going to have messages from people that are toxic for me. Getting my phone back and being allowed to only use it for a couple hours everyday helped me work through these triggers in a safe environment. This time at the Rose House I decided to participate in the Step Down program. Step Down is a sober living house very close the the inpatient house. The only thing I did not enjoy about the Step Down program is that the therapist you were working with for the entire inpatient program, is no longer your therapist. I didn't want to tell my story again and basically start all over. At Step Down, I still felt very connection to the main house. Every week, the girls at step down are required to go to two group therapy classes each week, have one individual therapy session and attend the Sunday night speaker meeting at the house. Getting a job was my greatest accomplishment while I was at Step Down. I have had very few "real" jobs in my life, and I didn't even know how to begin finding a job. The staff at the house was very helpful. I got help making a resume, and suggestions as to where I could work with my criminal record. I quickly found a job and my life seemed to be on the right path. I recently completed the Step Down program. I returned home to Colorado Springs, and am very confident that I will find a job soon. Moving is always a hard adjustment for me, but the skills I learned at the Rose House will get me through it. I recommend the Rose House for any woman struggling with addiction. The ages of the woman are across the board. I have been there with women who are 18, and there were woman there in the same time in their 70s. This is a program that can help anyone if you truly want to get help. Becoming clean and sober is a task no one can do on their own. Thank you Rose House, you have truly changed my life for the better and I am beyond grateful for that .

I have been struggling with drug and alcohol addiction for 16 years. And although I have always been aware that addiction is a disease that so many people suffer from, there was still a part of me that felt like my story was unique or different than in some way. I felt like there was no way that the world could ever help me because how could they ever truly understand what I had gone through in my life? When deciding to come to the Rose House, this was no exception, because I needed them to understand what I believed I "needed" in order to heal or recover. I had attended many other treatment centers in the past, but never one that addressed my underlying issues relating to my trauma and grief. In arriving at the Rose House, it was clear from the beginning that their approach was different. What I immediately loved about them was that it was clear that they did not focus on the problem, but rather the solution to the problem. That isn't to say that they didn't validate my journey or life experiences, but they truly helped me take action around changing these things. The Rose House slowly taught me that I did not have to continue to carry around the shame and fear I was feeling for such a long time. They taught me that in order to begin the healing process, that I had to take some risks first. And for me, the first risk was letting go of the toxic things I was using in my life to numb the pain. They supported me on the days that I was angry, sad or afraid, and with no strings attached, they just simply helped me to keep going. The staff at the Rose House is some of the most exceptional in my opinion, and that's truly because they care. Their investment was not in my family's money or how they could treat my disease "better" than other places could, but rather in providing me with the tools and skills I needed in order to live my life again. There is not only one approach that the Rose House takes with clients that come in, so if you are anything like me, and believe that you have exhausted other options, I am here to tell you that the Rose House works with you to find what WILL work. It is an individualized program that strongly focuses on what the client needs in order to succeed. I got the opportunity to truly change at the Rose House, and the best part is that they are still in my life reminding me that I am worthy. The Rose House is a place that I would recommend to anyone that is struggling with substance abuse, trauma, depression, anxiety, etc. All I had to do was show up, and they helped with the rest. I needed to be reminded that there is HOPE, and that I did not have to continue to live the destructive life I was living. I am so grateful for the Rose House, and could not imagine my life without them in it now. If you're struggling, please know that a place like Rose House exists and that there is help out there when you're ready to accept it (or even if you're not ready).

The Rose House is a life saver! The staff has an enormous amount of experience and truly cares about all clients past and present. The Rose House is an Out-of-Network provider and works with a variety of insurance PPO plans. They are not a Medicaid/ Medicare provider. The Rose House verifies insurance benefits as a service to clients. I appreciate their willingness to provide crucial care to clients with or without insurance. I would highly recommend The Rose House!

Still awaiting a refund of a facility that took advantage of a tough situation. My daughter has aspergers depression and anxiety and attempted suicide before going to Rose House for help She became more severe and agitated and did not receive all care described in pamphlet and paperwork. I'm still waiting for an itemized receipt ..been almost four months waiting. They live to send an invoice of the total bill but nothing itemized. The facility said they couldn't work with my daughter and allowed her to sign out even though that's illegal because I have guardianship. When I picked up my daughter she was sitting on the porch with her belongings...alone. Horrible.

To add to my last review, be careful when you get in the van to go to all your meetings and events. Back then the van didn't have working seatbelts. We were going around a corner way to fast on ice roads and I slid on the seat and hit my head on the side window, knocking me silly for a moment or two. And if you happen to have any lung disease or asthma I definitely wouldn't recommend this facility because smoking is allowed everywhere out side of the "House". Cigarette butts are everywhere around the grounds...completely disgusting!!!

Today my daughter graduated from The Rose House! I am so grateful to the staff that caringly and completely brought my daughter to sobriety! My daughter knew she needed help and was ready to do the work. She had multiple issues and The Rose House addressed her situation individually and guided her back to 'life'! I am so proud of the way she progressed through the program. Everything about The Rose House is supportive. As a mom, I was comforted by the step-down and after care programs. I needed to know my child not only had learned how to be sober, but could really manage day to day in her new life. Please excuse my exhilaration on having a sober daughter and allow me to say, 'We have come out the other side of this 'situation' smelling like a Rose!' I was once where you are now, searching for the right treatment. I remember the 'situation' before finding treatment and I wish your loved one the health and happiness like my daughter found at The Rose House. I can't say enough good things about the exceptional level of care my daughter received there. Thank Goodness For The Rose House!!!
