Wilderness and Ranch-based Addiction Treatment

We do things differently. Three Strands’ treatment program gives Hope. Grit. Healing. to young men struggling with substance use disorder and co-occurring mental health disorders. Located on a 1,378-acre working ranch in the mountains outside of Steamboat Springs, CO, Three Strands’ 30-day wilderness expedition, coupled with a 60-day stay on our working ranch, form the foundation of our trauma-informed, comprehensive, and clinically proven 90-day treatment program. Three Strands provides life-changing care in a non-traditional way—and helps clients find a path to the life they always envisioned.

Our Program

Three Strands treats young adult men, ages 18-27, suffering with substance use disorder and co-occurring mental health disorders. We believe that gender-specific care, in a therapeutic and demanding natural environment, are necessary ingredients to lasting recovery. The Three Strands 90-day program addresses trauma and other underlying factors that often lead to substance use and works to instill a deep sense of self-confidence and accomplishment in every client.
