Our Services


Colorado Recovery provides adults with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder or other serious mental illnesses, access to a community-based residential treatment facility, transitional living, intensive outpatient treatment, and vocational services.

We operate a residential treatment facility, Balsam House, in Boulder, Colorado. Our staff provides 24-hour supervision for residential treatment and a full range of on-site psychiatric services.

Transitional services and support are provided to clients who have recently moved into independent living in the community. Clients who have achieved stability in the community receive individualized outpatient treatment.

We provide psychiatric rehabilitation services, with an emphasis on getting clients back to work or to schooling. Psychiatric medication is prescribed sensitively, in tune with the individual’s needs.

Balsam House provided me a nurturing home-like setting where the caring staff helped me on a pathway to wellness. Additionally, there was a variety of group classes that were engaging and enjoyable. I am very grateful for my improvement while I was at Balsam House and know it is responsible for my better health.

I am so grateful for all you have done for our son. As a mother I only saw him as my “bouncing baby boy”, the super athlete, next senator…, my dreams and hopes before he was stricken. As a mother I never gave up. You and your team have given him back to us. Doesn’t matter what he does with his life, anything he decides to put his hand to he has the tools to be successful. I am sure you hear this all the time, but you saved his life and for that I will be forever grateful.
