Along with an increased quality of life, one goal for recovery is extended abstinence from drugs and alcohol. For this reason, Red Rock Recovery Center offers an extended care program called “The Ascent Program” to Denver and the surrounding area.

We realize that the recovery and treatment process is a journey, a climb, and an adventure. A Journey that takes a community to accomplish. Many substance use disorder treatment programs only offer 30 to 60-day programs before discharging their clients. While this may be satisfactory in milder cases, it’s often not enough. A month or two allows clients to begin building the foundation for long-term recovery. However, they may not yet have a firm grasp on the new habits and behaviors necessary to avoid relapse Extended Care or “The Ascent Program” allows clients more time to feel secure in their new lifestyle before returning to living independently. They build autonomy slowly over time to build their confidence.
