Free Addiction Treatment for Women in Colorado

Residential Addiction Treatment
For Women in Colorado


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

The  CAYA Treatment Program

Residential Treatment for Women


Overview
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.

We believe that making healthy choices begins with nourishing your body. Each week a nutritionist comes to the CAYA house to help with meal planning and addressing dietary needs (gluten-free, fibromyalgia, dairy-free, etc).

Each resident is in charge of one meal a week to cook for the CAYA house residents. They will learn grocery shopping budget management and how to prepare and plan delicious food so they can create nutritious meals on their own post-graduation.

Yoga + Exercise Classes

Outer health begets inner health which is why we believe in the power of regular body movement and exercise.

A fitness instructor/yoga teacher comes to the CAYA house a minimum of three times a week. We also have weekly outdoor adventures where we participate in Iocal hikes, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, etc.

Personal Life Coaching

A life coach is someone that looks to empower others by helping them make, meet and exceed goals in both their personal and professional lives. Weekly individual sessions are available at the CAYA house with our personal life coach.

Daily Group Sessions

Every week a different Bible teacher comes in Monday through Friday for two hours. Each teacher focuses on different topics ranging from mindset, mental blocks, writing and sharing testimonies and life stories, exploring identity as daughters of Christ, and more.

Education Services

The Franklin Covey Workshop teaches the women how to employ healthy and effective habits that support life-long growth and productivity. 

The workshop helps the women establish foundational principals that allow them to continue free from addiction and as influential members of the community. 

The women will be able to gain life skills, business training, and leadership development by studying the following topics: 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Leading at the Speed of Trust, The 5 Choices to Extraordinary Productivity, and Introduction to Financial Peace University. 

They will graduate with four certificates identifying they have completed the course, bolstering their confidence and their resumes.  An expert instructor will visit CAYA to teach a portion of each topic, and they will participate in an online community.

Leilani Brook’s Testimony

GET TO KNOW

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 3 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.

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.

Most importantly, the overwhelming calling and passion she feels to be a part of CAYA is what will really make an impact in the work she does in making CAYA thrive.Read More

Rebecca Beckner

Program 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!  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.  Read More
