Rites of Passage
Recovery is Possible
Rites of Passage is a holistic trauma and mental health residential treatment facility that specializes in trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder, borderline personality disorder, dual diagnosis, substance abuse and eating disorder treatment in Delta County, Colorado.
Residential Ecotherapy Treatment Program
Rites of Passage provides residential extended care for individuals facing mental health issues including dual diagnosis issues, trauma/PTSD, substance abuse, and eating disorders. This program is residential with clients living at the facility and combines the latest psychological methods with ecotherapy, mind/body/spirit transpersonal therapy, somatic therapy, animal therapy, equine assisted psychotherapy, riding therapy, art therapy, CBT, DBT, neuroscience therapy, nutrition and healthy community modeling to create a holistic and customizable program for each person who enters the facility.
Intensive Outpatient Treatment Program
The intensive outpatient program allows for both former residential clients and clients who have not been part of our residential program to continue or do their work in an intensive program that allows clients to work alongside the residential program from nine to two pm, four days a week. This allows individuals who no longer need 24-hour care or people who have children or need to work, to do the program in a slightly less intense fashion as long as they are in a safe and supportive environment when they are not at the facility.
Equine Therapy Treatment Program
Equine-assisted psychotherapy (EAP) is an emerging treatment modality that utilizes horse-handling activities to generate powerful therapeutic metaphors-metaphors, symbolic and that reflect how each individual relates to self and others. With the support of peers and Rites equine specialist and attending clinical therapist, students examine these metaphors to gain insight into their fears, habits, and unconscious ways of relating. As issues arise within the equine setting, students have en-vivo opportunities to work toward the understanding and healing of those issues.
