Home Rehab for Men in Colorado Transitional Treatment Intensive Outpatient

Solutions is our transitional 90-day program that bridges the gap between intensive treatment and independent living. Solutions are tailored for those ready and able to assume personal responsibility for their recoveries and motivated to make a positive difference in their lives and the lives of others. Solutions offers a comprehensive approach to continued care. This program combines intensive outpatient treatment with sober living arrangements, catering to men who have completed our primary care program, another treatment program, or those deemed suitable candidates for transitional living. Conveniently located just steps away from our primary program on Carbondale’s Main St, with easy access to shopping and bus lines. Jaywalker provides flexible lengths of stay, with a minimum commitment of 90 days.

Solutions is a Stage 2 recovery model designed to aid clients in implementing a sober lifestyle that mirrors independent living in a safe and supportive environment. Solutions is an intensive outpatient (IOP) level of care that provides ongoing group and individual therapy while clients engage in school, work, or significant volunteer opportunities. In this model, clients gain proficiency with time and task management, begin to learn to manage money and engage in meaningful service work in their local community. Clients continue to progress in their personal recovery program in addition to addressing ongoing mental health and trauma-related goals. Clients continue to work on enriching meaningful relationships with their peers at Jaywalker in addition to forming stronger relationships with the greater recovery community. Clients continue their relentless pursuits of joy through outdoor and service-oriented experiences. In addition, the Solution’s Expedition/Man’s Meaning trip is a dedicated weekend each client experiences to help them define the man they want to be in recovery.

Solutions are also heavily focused on service work as we find giving back is an integral part of the recovery process. Our motto, “If you wish to find yourself, lose yourself in service to others,” as adopted from the Gandhi quote is the foundation of our program. Our clients volunteer regularly with local groups, including Habitat for Humanity, Colorado Animal Rescue, Aspen Homeless Shelter, Volunteer Outdoor Colorado, and many others.


Education & Employment

Going back to school or getting a new job can be a daunting prospect for anyone in early recovery. Developing and supporting Jaywalkers in coming up with a personal plan for employment and/or higher education is an integral part of the Solutions program. Once clients settle into the program, each is encouraged to engage in the local community either as a part-time student or by securing a part-time job. Utilizing relational and occupational assessments, the counselors oversee each client’s planning process — and at Solutions, no two life plans are the same. Regardless of whether a client is resuming an established career, or has never had a job before, the assessment and planning process directs each client in taking the next step forward in his “real” sober life. In addition to individualized career and school planning, ongoing peer and staff support is essential as each client engages in new life challenges. Once the men are engaged in work or school, they then have a modified schedule and are still offered support from their counselors and the peer group. The support the program offers during this time is invaluable.

Each week the Solutions schedule is filled with opportunities for the client to choose activities that provide sober fun, wellness, and personal growth. In Solutions you will continue to find your challenge on the river fishing for trout, participating in a yoga class, or riding a mountain bike on a single-track trail. Your success will be found scaling a granite cliff on Independence Pass, rafting down class IV water on the Arkansas River, or skiing/snowboarding at one of the four Aspen Mountains. The opportunities and challenges will engage you and they will transform you.

Addiction is a disease of isolation. Service provides a vital connection to others and the reassurance that life has meaning and purpose. Service to others is a key component of the Solutions recovery model. Men in this program engage in a variety of service opportunities both locally and nationwide. It provides them an experience of venturing outside of themselves and serving as a force for positive change—encountering those who are less fortunate in their life circumstances, those who have persevered through adversity, yet have managed to keep their dignity and integrity intact. Service to others is witnessing the heartfelt gratitude of people who have been staggered by unfortunate circumstances of life and are seeking to stand tall again. It is in this common quest that fellowship comes to fruition and the problems at hand find Solution.

The Solutions Program is grounded in 12-Step Recovery and Relapse Protection. The men are required to attend 12-step meetings and work with a sponsor on the 12-Steps. We have a Big Book Study and have continued to reference the “Integrating Dialectical Behavior Therapy with the 12-Steps.” In the Solutions program, we emphasize “Relapse Protection.” We rely heavily on using the Socratic Method to engage the men in finding their answers in recovery. We support the men to go deeper in their process as we look at the family legacy, and messages the men have assimilated which impacts their present life. We examine shame screens, defenses, and current triggers to inform our treatment planning. Second Stage Recovery Assignments encourage the men to look at issues such as integrity, humility, and self-actualization, as well as a career narrative.


Clinical treatment plans vary at Solutions depending on the interests and aptitudes of each client. Objectives may include career guidance, continuing education, and/or community service. Relational and occupational assessments are strength-based and provide practical objectives for transitioning into mastery and quality of life in recovery. Clients will have the opportunity to take one of two occupational tests; the Greenwood System™ allows our counselors to provide the very best career and educational counseling available to create an individualized Action Plan. The Personality Style Indicator (PSI) is also available and often used in group therapy sessions to provide insights to enhance self-awareness, understanding of others and increase personal effectiveness.

The Greenwood System™

The Greenwood System™ is the most comprehensive career counseling process and report available to counselors today. The GS120™ assessment has been in development for over 35 years and includes a short battery of assessments – Myers-Briggs, GRIT, Holland, etc. to help clients match their abilities, interest, values, and personality to their best-fit career options and create a list of top 10 career paths. The client will then work with our Executive/Life Skills Coach to review results, create a personal purpose statement, and a concrete action plan for achieving their goals. What we like about the Greenwood assessment is that it uses the data, walks the client through a process that translates into a concrete Action Plan. It goes beyond just strengths and interests and builds on values and personality to help clients narrow their focus and create a vision for their future on a solid foundation of who they are. It provides a wealth of resources on each career, and is an individualized process based on the results of the assessments.

Intensive Outpatient Program in Colorado

Solutions are the name of Jaywalker’s intensive outpatient program that caters to people who need the structure that comes with inpatient treatment but does not require 24-hour care. Residential, or inpatient treatment, isn’t right for everyone. Everyone’s journey with substance abuse is different, as well as their needs, and the treatment they receive. Depending on various factors including the intensity of one’s addiction, some people may not require inpatient treatment as part of their overall treatment plan.

Others are either unwilling or unable to put their daily life on hold to enter into an inpatient program and live at the facility while undergoing substance abuse and addiction treatment. Therefore, they may be a candidate for other levels of care including outpatient treatment.

For those who are looking for an alternative to residential treatment, Jaywalker offers Solutions, an intensive outpatient program located in the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Carbondale, Colorado.

What is an Intensive Outpatient Program?

An Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a structured and comprehensive treatment program designed to help individuals struggling with addiction. It is a level of care that falls between residential treatment (inpatient) and traditional outpatient programs.

Benefits of an Intensive Outpatient Program

The biggest benefit of an IOP, especially when compared to inpatient treatment, is the flexibility and freedom that an intensive outpatient program such as Solutions offers. With intensive outpatient treatment, you come to the facility during the day for your various treatment and therapy sessions and then return home to your daily life and responsibilities.

While you may not be living at the facility, with an IOP you have access to many of the same treatments and therapies that those participating in residential treatment have, meaning you can get the treatment you need while still being able to go to work, school, or care for your family.

What To Expect During Intensive Outpatient Treatment

Intensive outpatient treatment provides a wide variety of therapies including:

At Jaywalker, our intensive outpatient program (Solutions) is a 90-day program that begins once a Jaywalker has completed The Landing. Solutions provide ongoing group and individual therapy while clients engage in school, work, or significant volunteer opportunities.
Our clients who participate in an IOP can expect a weekly schedule consisting of various therapies and treatments including yoga and meditation, as well as life skills sessions and recreational activities.

Intensive Outpatient Programs vs Outpatient Programs

While both intensive outpatient programs and standard outpatient programs provide flexibility and freedom in that you don’t need to live at the treatment facility to complete the program, there are some key differences between the two including:

  • Level of Care – IOPs offer a higher level of care and structure compared to regular outpatient programs. IOPs typically involve more treatment hours per week and provide a more comprehensive approach to recovery.
  • Commitment – IOPs require a more significant time commitment, usually involving several hours of treatment each day, multiple days per week. Regular outpatient programs typically have fewer treatment hours and may meet once or twice a week.
  • Supervision – IOPs provide a higher level of supervision compared to regular outpatient programs. IOPs often involve regular drug testing, check-ins, and accountability measures to ensure individuals are adhering to their recovery plan.

Is Intensive Outpatient Treatment Covered By Insurance?

Many private insurance providers cover at least some of the cost of intensive outpatient treatment. Many insurance providers are more likely to cover a greater portion of an IOP since intensive outpatient treatment is typically cheaper than residential treatment. The amount of coverage you receive depends largely on your insurance provider and the plan that you have.

At Jaywalker we work with many private insurance companies to help their clients get the treatment they need at a price they can afford. If you want to learn more about what your insurance provider does or does not cover, you can reach out to your insurance representative or you can fill out our insurance verification form. We will look over your policy and let you know what is and isn’t covered before starting treatment.

Who Is a Candidate for an Intensive Outpatient Program?

IOPs typically offer a higher level of support and accountability compared to standard outpatient programs. As a result, the ideal candidate for an intensive outpatient treatment program would be a Jaywalker who may need more intensive care than what a standard outpatient program offers but does not need 24-hour care and monitoring.

Since you don’t live at the facility while participating in intensive outpatient treatment, you must have a safe, stable, and supportive home environment to return to every day. This could either be a private residence or a sober living facility.

Who Would Benefit From an IOP?

If you are considering an intensive outpatient program, it is important to speak to a treatment professional first to make sure that an IOP is right for you.

As we mentioned earlier, a Jaywalker who would benefit most from intensive outpatient treatment is someone who does not require 24-hour care and monitoring. This person also has a supportive and safe home environment to return home to every day and is looking for the flexibility that comes with an IOP so that they may continue to fulfill their daily responsibilities.

Our Solutions Program is also ideal for a Jaywalker who has completed inpatient treatment and requires the structure that comes with an IOP as a step-down program.
