Addictions We Treat

Alcohol Addiction

Seeking information or help about alcohol addiction or alcohol abuse? You might be looking to understand how alcohol use turns into a problem and what can be done about it. Specifically, how does The Rose House help?
Alcohol is a part of our society, from social gatherings and sports events to advertisements and memes. But when does alcohol use become abuse and then dependency? At The Rose House, we understand that this progression can happen subtly and vary from person to person.

We treat women who need help recovering from alcoholism. Many of our clients have also experienced trauma or mental health issues, and some may use other substances in addition to alcohol. Women with anxiety, depression, or bipolar disorder are at higher risk of developing alcoholism. Often, those struggling with alcoholism are at risk of losing, or have already lost, important aspects of their lives, such as relationships, employment, education, health, and legal standing.

Alcohol addiction is a serious condition that affects countless individuals and families. At The Rose House in Colorado, we provide comprehensive and compassionate treatment to help you overcome this challenging addiction. Our experienced team uses evidence-based approaches that focus on what’s really going on underneath the alcohol abuse, to address the physical, emotional, and psychological aspects of alcohol dependence. By creating a personalized treatment plan, we support you through every step of your recovery journey, helping you build a healthier, more fulfilling life free from alcohol addiction.

Opioid Addiction

We are glad you are here, exploring how to begin a journey of recovery. While there is plenty of information online about opioid use and abuse—whether related to prescription drugs, heroin or fentanyl, or other opioids—you might be looking for a more in-depth understanding of how opioid use becomes a problem and what can be done about it. Specifically, how can The Rose House help?

Opioid addiction has reached epidemic levels in the United States. The rise of “Pain Medicine” as a medical specialty has contributed to this crisis. Individuals often start using opioids as prescribed for legitimate pain management but can quickly fall into patterns of overuse and dependency. Additionally, the transition from prescription opioids to heroin or fentanyl is common due to the high cost and limited availability of prescription medications.

At The Rose House, we specialize in treating women struggling with opioid addiction. Our clients often have a history of trauma or mental health issues and may be using other substances or unhealthy coping mechanisms alongside opioids. Opioid addiction can lead to the loss of life or critical aspects of life, including relationships, work or school, personal goals, physical and emotional health, and freedom due to legal issues.
The Rose House provides a supportive and comprehensive treatment environment tailored to the unique needs of women battling opioid addiction. Our compassionate approach helps clients reclaim their lives, restore their health, and work towards a sustainable recovery.


Recognizing when a woman is abusing stimulants can be hard. Is the woman just experiencing mood swings, struggling with depression, or potentially using drugs? If she is using drugs, how can The Rose House help?

Stimulants, which include amphetamines, cocaine, and methamphetamines, are substances that increase alertness, attention, and energy. Prescription medications for ADHD are also often stimulants. While these substances can be beneficial when used correctly under medical supervision, improper use can lead to severe health issues. Misusing stimulants can result in increased aggression, paranoia, and even psychotic episodes. Additionally, it can cause dangerously high body temperature, irregular heartbeat, heart failure, and seizures.

At The Rose House, we understand the complexities of stimulant addiction and its impact on women’s lives. Our treatment programs are designed to address the unique challenges of stimulant abuse, offering comprehensive support for those dealing with both the physical and psychological effects. Our experienced team provides a compassionate and individualized approach, helping women overcome addiction and rebuild their lives with a focus on health, stability, and long-term recovery.

Marijuana Addiction

Are you seeking a perspective on how marijuana use can become problematic and what can be done about it? Is marijuana abuse common, and can a person even become addicted? How can The Rose House help?
The use, sale, and legality of marijuana are hot and often controversial topics. Some people believe that marijuana is not a problem, and can actually be an effective treatment for mental health issues. Our philosophy is that marijuana is a mind-altering substance, and individuals who want to live a sober lifestyle and have good mental health should abstain from its use. Marijuana products available today are often extremely high potency and can lead to cannabis-induced psychosis, trigger the onset of other psychological disorders, and cause physical health concerns.

Marijuana, or cannabis, refers to the dried flowers from the hemp plant Cannabis sativa. It contains the psychoactive chemical delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) along with other related compounds. This plant material can also be concentrated into a resin called hashish or a sticky black liquid known as hash oil. THC is the main chemical ingredient that produces the psychoactive effects. Marijuana is often smoked, vaped, or consumed in the form of an edible (when marijuana is mixed into food) or brewed as tea.

The short-term effects of marijuana include problems with memory and learning, distorted perception, difficulty in thinking and problem-solving, and loss of coordination. Regular Cannabis use is associated with cognitive problems, physical health problems, an increased risk of mental illness, and a general disconnection to self and life.

Synthetic cannabinoids, commonly known as “synthetic marijuana,” “K2,” or “spice,” are often sold in legal retail outlets as “herbal incense” or “potpourri” and are most popular among young people. These synthetic drugs are labeled “not for human consumption” to mask their intended purpose and avoid FDA regulatory oversight.

At The Rose House, we understand the complexities of marijuana addiction and its impact on women’s lives. We believe that marijuana use does not actually help treat mental illnesses such as anxiety and depression, but actually makes it worse over time. Our treatment programs are designed to address the unique challenges of marijuana abuse or dependency, offering comprehensive support for those dealing with the physical and psychological effects. Our experienced team provides a compassionate and individualized approach, helping women overcome addiction and rebuild their lives with a focus on health, stability, and long-term recovery.

Process Addictions

Process addictions involve compulsive behaviors that are not related to substance use but are nonetheless problematic. Women seeking treatment at The Rose House often face process addictions alongside substance abuse and mental health concerns. These behaviors can include disordered eating, over-exercising, sex and love addiction, relationship challenges, shopping, and self-harm.

Disordered eating is a common issue even among women who do not have a diagnosed eating disorder. The Rose House addresses this delicate situation with care and expertise. As a small treatment facility, we are attuned to the daily health and well-being of our clients, allowing us to create personalized treatment plans.

Over-exercising, often linked to body image struggles, is another problem we frequently address. Our gender-specific program allows us to tackle cultural norms and challenges unique to women.

Love and sex addiction, as well as relationship issues, are regularly addressed in both individual and group therapy sessions at The Rose House. Learning how to function in relationships is critical to the recovery process.

We also help clients who have issues with overspending and excessive shopping. Our clinicians work diligently to understand the underlying reasons for these behaviors and provide effective treatment strategies.

Self-harm or non-suicidal self-injury is another concern for some women in treatment. Using evidence-based therapies and techniques, The Rose House is equipped to address these behaviors and support clients in their recovery.

Unlike traditional rehab facilities, The Rose House has the experience to treat various aspects of mental health that do not necessarily involve substances. The deep trauma work we offer often helps heal process addictions. At The Rose House, women find the support and treatment they need to get better.
