Meet The Staff

Carolyn Ross, MD
Colorado Director for Eating Disorders

Dr. Ross completed her undergraduate degree in Modern Foreign Languages at Purdue University and then was a full-time mother of her two older sons before returning to school to complete her Pre-Med requirements. She then went to the University of Michigan Medical School. Dr. Ross’s practice experience after medical school helped fuel her interest in understanding what makes people heal as she saw that most of her patients’ medical problems were related to lifestyle habits and the stresses of modern living. In searching for a better way to address these issues, Dr. Ross began to explore complementary and alternative therapies and the use of herbs and supplements for her patients. She then completed a residency in Preventive Medicine at Loma Linda University and set up practice in San Diego, California, where she eventually opened three women’s centers where she practiced primary care and office gynecology. Her women’s centers integrated the best of western medicine with complementary and alternative therapies such as yoga, acupuncture, chiropractic, and nutrition counseling. She developed and ran a weight management program for weight loss therapy that offered a holistic approach to treating obesity. During that time, she also served as the medical director of The Rader Institute’s inpatient eating disorder program.

This facility is in an old motel. Mold, wet carpets when in rains. Was sold as an alternative to AA .Not.the food is inedible. I wouldn’t feed it to my dog - he deserves better.some 3 some rooms. The main concern is passing out cigarettes twice a day. They have no concern about withdrawal - I was taken off Klonopin and Ambian cold turkey. All medical findings suggest a slow withdrawal. THEY DONT HAVE A CLUE.

Mold, sub human food, sub human treatments. I came with a klonopin, ambian addiction. I was immediately told to cold turkey. The entire medical community knows this is inappropriate for these drugs - everyone, that is, except this facility. I left after 2 weeks to recover at home. I went through psychotic episodes for 4 months. This place should be closed. And, I bet that you’ll remove this from your glowing reviews!

Had a loved one treated here. Was worried for her during the detox part, her detox therapist took excellent care of her. Checked her vitals every couple of hours and kept her comfortable and safe. She sent me an e-mail explaining visitation and phone calls, reached out to me on the phone, and gave me the contact info for the people taking care of her after detox. My loved one even extended her stay. Highly recommend. Best of luck. Faith and peace.

Staff and clients were great. Got a tremendous amount out of the program; you get out what you put into it. I'm substance free now (5months)in large part to what I learned there. Only negative for me was 3 to a room. I know they opened a new "wing" in July so that issue should be resolved. Highly recommend Recovery Village.

It's pretty much a country club. The beds are extraordinarily comfortable, bathrooms are clean, rooms are quiet, and the BHTs do everything they can within the rules/their power to accommodate your requests. The days are pretty routine...up at 6:30, coffee, shower, breakfast at 8, groups from 9 to 4:30 with a 45 minute lunch and plenty of smoke breaks. The scenery is breath taking. Some of the therapists are incredible - luck of the draw. A large majority of the staff is in recovery. Probably one of the nicest rehabs in the United States. Don't get me wrong, the rules can be restrictive and arbitrary, but it's for everyone's safety. No privacy, but that's to be expected, you get use to it. Coming from someone who has worked in several fine dining restaurants, the food is exceptional. One piece of advice - fill up during meal times because there is no free access to snacks. Even if you're not hungry, eat, you'll be hungry later if you don't.

I usually don't post reviews, but it's clear that there are some reviews posted directly from the company so I wanted to add my perspective to balance it out and warn people of what to really expect. Simply put: expect incompetence 1. When you call to get information or admitted you're routed to Florida. Even though I asked to speak to someone at the Colorado facility, I couldn't. Everything is handled through Florida and it should've tipped me off that something wasn't right. Trust your instincts. 2. This place could NOT get the billing correct for my insurance despite 5 separate attempts. I had to intervene and act as the middle man between the insurance and the facility. Seems they were trying to bill the wrong insurance - one we didn't even have and was nowhere in my file. When they finally did get the right insurance, they didn't get the proper authorizations and cost me an additional $6000. Conveniently the billing office never answered the phone or returned calls. My spouse and I both tried working the issue and it added stress and worry to my stay. I shouldn't be dealing with billing while I should be focusing on my recovery in rehab. 3. The facility is co-ed and there was more drama between the women and men than there was a focus on recovery. Who wanted to sleep with each other, who was sleeping with each other, who never wanted to sleep with each other again. Ridiculous. The women had so much drama between each other that the men had to deal with it to - co-ed is fine sometimes, but it should be more segregated. 4. The food was ridiculous and you could only eat at certain times. They won't let diabetics control their own blood sugar with insulin or medication. Even more stress added to the stay when it shouldn't even be a concern. One guy's blood sugar was completely out of control and he had to sneak food into his room because he was worried about his blood sugar getting too low in the middle of the night. Healthy snacks should be available when necessary. 5. The counselors changed every week. My first and second counselor quit during my 30 day stay, so I had 3 separate counselors and made absolutely no progress with any of the 3 I had. There was very little family counseling because they insisted on doing it Monday through Friday 9-3 or some other really restrictive hours. My spouse couldn't make it during that time because they have a job they can't just leave with 2 days notice. They won't do family counseling on weekends or evenings so if your family needs to work like mine did, you won't get any family treatments. 6. IOP was a joke and there was zero aftercare. I kept in touch with a lot of people from the facility and we've all relapsed. Can't blame that on anything but ourselves, but I feel my time at Palmer Lake was a really expensive waste of money. AA is free and has better support than Palmer Lake.

Don\'t take your loved one there...They are co-ed wich means sometimes is one guy on a field trip and nine women... Nutrition is excellent. Too many smoking breaks Allowed other centers e.g. Cedar instead offer nicotine treatment alternatively...They promise more family support than they deliver. Ultimately their image is defended even at a cost of ignoring patient genuine concerns. It is run in some respects more like a social club than recovery center.

One woman is the best therapist there is. The other staff is under trained. The grounds are beautiful but since it was winter I wasn\'t able to get out much. It is way to close of quarters for the amount of people they cram in there. They have a sewer problem and the whole lower floor smelled really bad. They have cut their food budget to next to nothing. The food is terrible. The servers are great but seemed a little embarrassed by what they had to serve. The staff is so worried about someone smoking an extra cigarette that they don\'t pay attention to people that are behaving badly in the hallways. If it wasn\'t for the best therapist there I would have left long before I did.

Top of the line, state of the art, \"bend over backward\", quality treatment! I spent 55 days at Recovery Village June 19, to September 20, 2015. Just 2 weeks after facility opened. I am 64 & alcoholic. I have been to more than half dozen rehabs. Rec.Village is buy far the best! I owe so much to Rec Village! Including my current ABSTAINENCE. And not EXcluding, very likely my very life.

Strengths: Private accommodations are comfortable, restful with separate facilities for men and women. There is a fitness center gym, walking trails and yoga classes. There is a breath taking views of Rocky mountains which is very helpful for fast recovery for mental and physical health. Everything is absolutely perfect! They works closely with physicians, psychiatrists, and therapists to facilitate the admissions process for patients in need of intensive recovery services.

Beautiful environment which is healing, comfortable and safe. Very dedicated, well trained staff that are willing to go the extra mile. Great mixture of medical, clinical and holistic modalities. Best treatment available in Colorado, most qualified program we've found. Very happy with what we've seen thus far. Would definitely recommend to friends and family seeking addiction/mental health help.
