Free Addiction Treatment for Women in Colorado

Come As You Are Ministries

CAYA is a free 12-month Christ-centered residential treatment program located in Steamboat Springs, Colorado for women overcoming addictions.

Our Mission

Come As You Are is a free 12-month residential treatment home for women that equips them to overcome addictions and discover new lives.

The women experience a healthy community, build their work ethic and skill sets, receive the resources needed to gain freedom from their pasts, and learn to serve others in need.

CAYA residents participate in recovery groups, counseling, and life coaching to facilitate change at a heart level.  In addition, they build valuable life skills by supporting themselves through residential cleaning work, managing their legal and personal appointments, having supervised visits with their children, practicing food budgeting and inventory, and practicing executive functioning skills.

We seek not only to see the women’s lives changed, but also to contribute to the betterment of the entire Yampa Valley.

Our Ministry Partner

Breaking Bonds Ministry is our parent sponsor, who currently operates as a men-only 7-month program. In line with their vision of planting Breaking Bonds programs nationwide, Come As You Are will be their first location for women and the first chapter outside of Arkansas.

Breaking Bonds will help mentor Come As You Are with budgets, programming, fundraising, and provide the guidance needed to stay on course and be successful, along with quarterly visits to CO to help with fundraising. We also have local partners within the Steamboat community who are eager to have a free faith-based option for women.

This is not a treatment.
This is a CURE.

This proven treatment program has an 80% success rate that we are bringing here to Steamboat Springs from our parent ministry, Breaking Bonds Ministry.

CAYA is the only residential treatment program for women in Routt County, and we are the only free women’s recovery program in the state of Colorado!


Our Team

Leilani Brooks

Executive Director

My name is Leilani Brooks, and I’ve been set free from a 14yr. drug and alcohol addiction. I spent one half of my life in active addiction, which culminated in my incarceration and loss of my two-year-old son. Today, by the grace and relentless love of God I have been clean and sober for over 4 years.

My destructive way of life came to an end in early 2016 when I was accepted into a Faith-Based Treatment program. After graduating from this 12-month life-changing program I knew the path the Lord wanted me to take.

Leilani’s Testimony

Rebecca Beckner

Spiritual Director

Rebecca deeply cares about becoming and helping others to become all that Christ intended for us to be.  The Lord often invites her into what seems like unintended training grounds, and He taught her about discipleship through years of practice before she really knew what He was doing!  Read More .

Jessica Rooney

Administrative Assistant

There are so many details and small tasks that are needed to be completed in the day-to-day running of a program like CAYA. Leilani needed a right-hand (wo)man to help her get all these things completed…and God sent Jessica.

Jessica graduated with her Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management from Grand Canyon University. Her education, as well as her experience with administrative work for a family, faith-based nonprofit, qualifies her for a role such as this.Read More

Darin Gregg

Admissions & Operations Director

PHONE: 720-586-0574

Darin is a Utah native.  He moved to Colorado 4 years ago.  His passion to work at CAYA came from his background of 20+ years of being in addiction himself.  Darin attended a non profit treatment center in Denver and was asked to stay on as staff.  He was trained in admissions and outreach and excelled in advocating for clients in the courtroom, through probation, and parole and working with the homeless.  He became very passionate working with the families and partnering in intervention work.  After his time there, he was asked to work for a for profit treatment center in Steamboat Springs doing admissions.  Working in Steamboat led him to meet Leilani and encounter CAYA where is was able to hear and see the vision. Darin was immediately inspired seeing faith based treatment program being a believer himself.  Working for other programs where it seemed like something was missing, he is now able to work in an environment where he can help disciple and lead others to the same freedom he found and was ultimately saved.  He feels called to work alongside Leilani and continue to build CAYA women’s program and eventually build a men’s program in the Yampa Valley.

Our Funding

Church Partnership

Come As You Are Ministry is here to help build the Church and not take from it. Because the ministry will be located and partnered with the church, it will be our intent to grow the church and grow the impact that the local church(s) will have in our community. There is so much opportunity to reach the broken and see lives being saved by the grace of God.

In addition, we will also be funded by private donors, churches, and quarterly fundraisers. We are very thankful for the spiritual support and the openness of the church for this program to be a part of it.

Ministry Growth

We currently can hold 9-11 residents in the current 5-bedroom home (take a tour) which is an ideal number to lay that foundation. As God builds, we will expand our facility and program.
