At any given time, there are up to five staff members on duty at the Lodge. Focused solely on our clients, our facility’s full-time clinical director and medical director meet with residents for one hour per week and remain on-call, 24/7, for after-hours emergencies.

Before discharge from Denver addiction treatment, aftercare planning is crucial to improve recovery outcomes. Aftercare planning involves making sober living arrangements and planning for intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) near the resident’s hometown.
