Marsha KauffmanMarsha Kauffman ★★★★★ The following was a post I made when leaving recovery village 2/2020. I have faced adversity, but remained sober and content even in sadness or moments of panic-moments pass. It has been four and a half years since I was in treatment and I still use the tools and support I learned to use at Recovery Village. You are not forced into AA/NA, but work to get to the root problem and how to manage successfully and consistently.The following was and still is true.I had a wonderful experience! My therapist, Robert, was wonderful and a perfect fit for me! He held me accountable, yet was kind. I also appreciate how he and Shane made my son feel welcome from the beginning of the process. My son LOVED family day with Cindy and even asked to come to another session with her. I always felt Stephen was approachable and all the staff was wonderful. Thank you to Ashley for helping me create a solid follow up plan even with the corona virus happening. I would recommend this program and have it listed in my 911 plan in case of any problem. Thank you to everyone!!!Mariah CarrollMariah Carroll ★★★★★ This is not my first go ‘round at a recovery center so I absolutely mean this when I say: This is THE BEST place I have ever gone. So much so that I plan to work the ENTIRE program. Every single staff member from the directors, therapists, medical, BHT’s, chefs and janitorial workers is just astounding. I’ve never felt safer and truly heard. This program is incredibly informative and I’ve already learned so much. Thank you, PLR for being amazing!!Eric SayerEric Sayer ★★★★★ All the staff is phenomenal. No bad experiences with any of the staff, to include case management, therapists, BHTs, nurses and support staff. Highly recommend!Kellie McConnellKellie McConnell ★★★★★ I can't say enough about PLR. From the first intake on the phone to my arrival, the care I received while there and the intense CBT classes changed my whole self. I went all in and I don't regret a single bit. I am now in the IOP program via Zoom and continue to receive the care I experienced during my stay.7 Passengers7 Passengers ★★★★★ One year ago, June 28th, 2023, I checked myself into The Recovery Village at Palmer Lake. I was broken, scared and didn’t have one answer - other than I needed help.I was beyond sick and tired of being sick and tired.After my 41 day stay, I walked out the door feeling alive again. I was happy again. Feeling again. The education I received still leaves me feeling so very grateful. You have to bust your tail in here - if you want it.The warmth. The understanding. The guidance. The pushes and nudges.I think about every person that helped me on my sobriety path in there.. they became “my people.”I couldn’t think of a better way to end this day….to recognize and pay my sincere gratitude and respects to the wonderful people who make Palmer Lake what it is. One year later… I AM STILL SOBER😊.Thank you🤍Katie WattersRebekah Cook JarrellRebekah Cook Jarrell ★★★★★ Nestled in a valley, surrounded by picturesque mountains and bluffs, is a place that will save your life. The Recovery Village at Palmer Lake is unlike any other rehab facility. I’ve been to two others and PLR is far and away THE place to go for recovery. The entire program is vastly different than anything I’ve experienced. It’s a well thought out program which starts in detox, then residential inpatient, followed by partial hospitalization (PHP) and finally IOP, if you choose to stay. My personal involvement included a 6 week inpatient stay at PLR, which took me through PHP 3 and thus the end of the main programming. Lengths of stay vary depending on your progress, history and insurance.While PLR offers 12 step meetings and encourages that participation, their program doesn’t completely revolve around AA/NA. Rather, the focus is on the root cause of the addiction. With the concept being that our DOC (drug of choice) was our solution and not our problem. Therefore, the program is heavily based on discovering the deep rooted traumas, histories, hurts, etc that drove to one’s use of their DOC. PLR focuses on the brain’s development and the why behind how it works and how it keeps us stuck. They discuss communication styles, family dynamics, co-dependency, psychodrama (highly recommend this class with Arno in PHP3), neurological function, relapse prevention, trauma work as well as a multitude of other concepts. The focus is on this, so that the patient can better understand themselves, in a process of detangling each one from our substances.The trauma work at PLR is incredible! The facility offers EMDR (recommend Laura, EMDR therapist) for those who stay through weeks 1-3 of PHP. I had never experienced EMDR before and I’m comfortable to say, from my experience, that it works wonders! I was able to discharge from PLR with the capacity to close past traumas and the ability to be able to think through them, process them and no longer be panicked or reactive to them. In addition to EMDR, there are groups that also do vast trauma work.Each person at this facility will change your life on a soul level. I have never felt so loved, valued, comfortable or considered as I did during my time at PLR. The clinicians, behavioral health techs, medical staff and nurses work together to treat the entirety of the patient. There are so many truly special people on staff who only want the best for you! Particular shout outs include:- Clinicians: Cindy, Dr. G, David, Traeman, Janet, Julie (recommend parenting class), Aaron, Rob, Tammy, Sayeh- BHTs: Jamie, John, Nathan, Darrell, Hannah, Melissa, Anthony, Marcos- Activity Coordinator: Elizabeth- Medical: Psych NP Joanne- Dietary: Heather, Saoirse, Karen- Case Manager: Amanda- Executive Director: Chris- RN’s: Julie, Patty, Quinn, Erin, DON KristenAll of these people have significantly touched my life and I will never forget them! I’m so blessed and grateful to have known them.Lastly, some FYIs:- Smoking and vaping are allowed within the smoking area.- Dietary: food isn’t the greatest or most healthy but the staff will work diligently with you to accommodate special needs. They were amazing to me!- The facility has a walking trail, basketball, pickle ball, a gym, a pool, volleyball, equine therapy off site, as well as other rec activities. Be advised that while in detox they strongly encourage you to simply rest due to safety concerns. Also, the pool, equine therapy and offsite activities only occur during PHP.- Housekeeping: This is the only area that really needs some help. While there, housekeeping never came to clean, nor were cleaning materials provided so patients could clean themselves.All that said, this is THE place to go for recovery. Upon my departure, my soul, my mind and my heart were completely changed. I walked out crying because I didn’t want to leave. This entire experience has allowed me to become myself again and has me on a path of achieving all I’ve ever wanted. I am deeply grateful for my experience and I know you will be too!Sarah AlmeidaSarah Almeida ★★★★★ Amazing rehab absolutely loved the program they have!!!Richard YoungRichard Young ★★★★★ Can not say enough good things about this place.

Take that first step, pass through the doors into PLR!Colin CaldwellColin Caldwell ★★★★★ This was a great experience. Most people leave reviews like this is some resort but it is a recovery center. This was my second time here and I have 158 days. Made lots of friends and built a good network in my sober community. Just remember that recovery is selfish, you have to want it, and that "ITS NOT AN OPTION" -Dr. GUpdate 01/15/2024 (347 days since my last drink)Update: 04/16/2024 I left PLR on 420 (438)Response from the ownerHello, thank you for the kind words and feedback!
