ABOUT THE ROSE HOUSE
Founded in 2008, the Rose House offers treatment for adult women struggling with substance misuse, mental health concerns, and co-occurring disorders. Located in the Boulder suburb of Louisville, the Rose House offers residential care, a partial hospitalization program (PHP), which is offered at 5.2 percent of Colorado facilities, an intensive outpatient program (IOP), offered at 44.4 percent of Colorado facilities, standard outpatient care, and aftercare. Detox services are not available on-site.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Upon admission, each client receives a complete psychological evaluation, the results of which inform her individualized treatment plan. Clients typically stay in the residential program for two or three months, positioning the Rose House among the 10.8 percent of Colorado facilities that offer treatment lasting longer than 30 days.
The Rose House emphasizes healing any trauma clients have experienced, as well as addressing any mental-health disorders they're struggling with. As such, residents participate in a total of 30 hours of individual and group counseling per week, which utilize evidence-based and trauma-informed methods drawn from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), among other modalities.
These clinical approaches are supplemented by holistic therapies such as art therapy, daily exercise, equine therapy, and volunteering, plus sessions on mindfulness and nutrition. There are also specific sessions on grief and loss, sex and love addiction, and working with the inner child. Every night, residents also attend 12-step meetings in the community.
Toward the end of their stay, clients work with staff to develop an aftercare plan, which may include stepping down to the center’s PHP, IOP, or OP treatment options. The facility also operates two local sober living facilities, which offer an increased level of freedom along with structure and support.
According to The Rose House’s website, the center’s treatment team includes a psychiatrist a PhD-level psychologist, a registered nurse, master’s-level therapists, licensed professional counselors, and certified addiction counselors.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Surrounded by mountain views and hiking trails, the Rose House’s 16-bed occupancy offers clients a homelike environment for recovery. Residents live together in a large, prairie-style mansion with a fireplace, communal kitchen, a yoga and stretching room, and an outdoor swimming pool.
Each resident sleeps in a twin bed and shares a bedroom with one roommate. As part of the program, participants are given daily access to a local health club, and staff are available to provide guidance on nutrition.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Of the four reviews submitted to Rehabs.com to date, three are positive and one is negative. The positive reviewers were often impressed by the Rose House's long-term treatment plan and all the options to gradually transition out of residential treatment and back into community life.
In addition, the reviewers repeatedly praised the center's individual approach, allowing each resident to get to their root cause of their addiction. "They individualize the projects and writing assignments to the specific client when necessary, and this really helps show that the staff cares. The genuinely want every woman to succeed," alum Kristin wrote.
The only negative review from an alum cited a lack of seatbelts on the bus and complained about the smoking areas around the facility, leading to cigarette butts being left around, among other things.
The Rose House has mostly positive feedback on secondary sites at the time of this writing, with a 4.4 out of five-star average rating based on 14 reviews on Google, a five-star rating on Yelp, and a one-star rating on YellowPages.com.  
The positive reviewers frequently praised the facility's staff and breadth of programming. "Thank you Rose house, after 10 years I finally feel like my life is back. I never thought I could do this. The combo of the staff, therapists, trauma therapy, going to the gym and hikes-finding a new way to live helped me change everything and lose nothing," Mary wrote in a typical comment on Google.
WHAT FRIENDS AND FAMILY SAY
Of the two reviews from loved ones submitted to Rehabs.com to date, one was positive and one negative. Mother Becky felt that her daughter did not receive the promised care, and was very unhappy that her daughter was discharged alone, despite Becky being her guardian.
However, fellow mom Lucy praised her daughter's treatment, specifically highlighting the center’s individual programming and continuum of care. “As a mom, I was comforted by the step-down and after care programs. I needed to know my child not only had learned how to be sober, but could really manage day to day in her new life,” she wrote.
The Rose House accepts insurance, and will verify clients' coverage on their behalf, but does not currently provide any information about the cost of its programs.
