Parker Valley Hope, built in 1989, is located in the South Denver Metro area, in the town of Parker, Colorado. The location is a comfortable, ‘in the country’ setting; just one and one half miles out of the town of Parker. We are a free standing substance abuse facility with 10 detox beds and 40 dormitory beds. We have nursing staff around the clock helping our patients recover. We offer detox, residential and partial levels of care seven days per week. We also offer family support and education, believing that substance abuse has an overwhelming impact on everyone in the family. We have found that individuals whose families are involved in treatment have a higher sobriety rate.
We are contracted with most major medical insurance companies and work diligently to offer payment plans for those who cannot afford the full cost of treatment up front.
Our 12 Step based approach includes providing each patient with an individual counselor, group counselor, and chaplain. Our chaplains are nondenominational with a focus on spirituality and the concept of a higher power. The length of stay at Parker Valley Hope is variable and based upon each patient’s recovery needs.
A typical day of addiction treatment at Parker Valley Hope includes psycho-educational and 12 Step discussion groups, individual and small group counseling, spiritual counseling, and opportunities to attend 12 Step meetings. Addiction treatment is highly individualized, as is our length of stay. Patients work with their individual counselor to develop a continuing care plan so that they continue to receive the treatment and support they need, long after leaving the residential treatment center.
Valley Hope has always recognized the importance of family involvement in the process of recovery. An addiction can destroy families as much as it destroys the individuals who are admitting to addiction treatment. Parker Valley Hope offers family programming during the week and on the weekends. We also offer online family treatment which is a great resource for those family members who want to be involved, but may not be able to travel.
Parker Valley Hope’s short distance to the Denver International Airport allows individuals to access addiction treatment from anywhere in the United States via our Fly to Recovery program. With the Valley Hope Fly to Recovery option, Valley Hope assists with flight arrangements and can also coordinate family involvement and continuing care services upon return home.
Donna is the Community Services Clinician for Valley Hope’s Colorado continuum for alcohol, drug and related treatment services. Donna’s pilgrimage with Valley Hope began in 1999. She is a Marriage and Family Therapist and a Certified Addictions Counselor level III. Her years in this field bring an array of experiences- – from working with the addicted person, facilitating a family program, and couples work, to working in the community reaching out to professionals working with substance abusers. Connecting with professionals over the years has led to a ‘follow up’ provider list to refer Valley Hope patients to when they leave Valley Hope services. Her passion is helping the addicted person and their family find their way into recovery; assisting them to a facility that offers quality care that best fits ‘their’ individual needs.
