ABOUT CAYA

We Are A FREE Residential Addiction Treatment
For Women in Colorado

What Is CAYA?

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

Our residential treatment program provides 24-hour long-term care for 12 months to women who are 18 years of age or older and have come to a place of true brokenness and are ready to surrender their lives to becoming new in Jesus Christ.

The focus is on helping the women spiritually learn or re-establish healthy functioning skills and values.

Our program also encourages the involvement of family in the journey. Since addiction and associated recovery are very much interconnected with family, we encourage them to visit during specified days and times while their loved one is in treatment.

Voluntary

This is a voluntary program. Upon entry, all residents are made aware that they are enrolled by free-will and are under no obligation to stay, however choosing to leave before completion or taking actions that cause a resident to be dismissed will result in permanent termination.

Three Phases

Our program consists of three phases—  Intensive Treatment, Repair & Action, and the Maintenance Treatment—designed to foster valuable personal and relational habits and to help residents transition to successful and productive futures. All phases include individual and group spiritual counseling, life skills coaching, and identifying root causes of addiction.

Phase One

Intensive Treatment

Months 1-4

The Intensive Treatment Phase is the initial entry phase and the first four months of the program.

This phase is highly structured and allows residents to be fully engaged in their recovery.

Residents schedules are customized to address the unique needs of each individual and tailored to address not just addiction, but the wellness of the mind, body and most important their spirit during their stay.

It is designed to emphasize personal spiritual growth through study of The Word, taking self-inventory, becoming a willing participant as well learning to become personally accountable.

Phase Two

Repair / Action Phase

Months 5-8

This phase includes a more defined focus on the development and enhancement of Life Skills (including budgeting, interviewing & good work practices), the development of problem-solving skills and interpersonal skills, and the application of principles to effect personal change in thinking, attitude & actions.

This phase continues to increase the individual’s responsibility, by beginning to integrate skills learned into their life.

This phase also includes having the individual seek employment, resume writing and job application/placement services, and integrate recreational activities, while under the guidance and support of a counselor.

As they progress through treatment, individuals will be encouraged to keep practicing their new, healthy behaviors while adjusting, and to develop a healthy support network that will serve them after they leave the program.

Leilani Brook’s Testimony

M E E T

Our Team

Leilani

Executive Director
leilani@cayasteamboat.com

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.

Read More

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.

I began the process of building a recovery program for women by working with the local church leaders, women’s groups, jail administrators, judges and anyone else who wanted to be a part of His vision!

Come As You Are is my answer to prayer to help suffering women, just like I was, to overcome and realize that Jesus is the ultimate physician.

Today, I am a thriving member of society, real estate broker, multi-business owner and committed Mom to a very happy little boy.

Maggie

Program Director

Born and raised in Colorado, Maggie has worked within the non-profit sphere for the last 10 years. As the goodness of God began to set free from her own bondage, a fiery passion was placed in her heart to walk beside women as they are set free from the chains of life’s circumstances.

She yearned to walk beside women as they came to know their real identity, and experience the freedom only Jesus can offer. Three years ago, the lord brought Maggie into the addiction treatment field and now in the process of becoming a Certified Addiction Counselor. Maggie is blessed and honored to bring her experience and passion to the team at CAYA.

Rebecca

Discipleship & Spiritual Direction
rebecca@cayasteamboat.com

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
Rebecca and her husband have operated two nonprofits over a span of eleven years, and she loves to train and equip disciples who experience Christlike transformation, to create spaces where others can encounter God’s lavish love, and to help God’s people discover and share their gifts with a world that really needs them. The Lord sweetly lets Rebecca pioneer and adventure with Him, and He has stirred her love for unity and collaboration in the Church. In addition to serving at CAYA, Rebecca operates a nonprofit called The Hesed Project and co-disciples a local home church community.

Jessica

Jessica was born in San Jose, California and moved to Kansas City, Missouri at ten years old. As a teen God had given her sister a vision for her. Where women were walking into the throne room in rags and full of shame. God called Jessica to sit next to Him to reveal to them their beauty and their hearts of gold. She knew God had a plan for her!

During high school she volunteered her summers at an orphanage in Mexico, still searching for what God’s call for her was. A year after graduating high school, Jessica got married. She worked as a manager at a restaurant where close to half the staff were from a troubled youth treatment center. This gave her a passion for working with women in recovery. Jessica and her husband moved from Kansas City, Kansas to Steamboat in faith that God had a plan for them, and after some waiting on the Lord, He called her to CAYA!
