A Letter From Our Founder

Dear Families,

I grew up watching a family member struggle with meth. In and out of jail and treatment, he lost his money, his teeth, his health, his friends, and even most of his family relationships. I have loved him and been pained as I wished many times that he had gotten top level treatment as a teenager. By the time he was cycling into lousy facilities in his twenties, thirties, and forties, it appeared too late. Though he has been clean for the last four years, he has lost of lot of his life and a lot of his health. I cannot make that up for him.

What I can do is provide a world-class program where others can change the course of their lives early, before they have lost so very much. Before meth, opiates, alcohol, and even “just pot” has changed the very nature of a young person’s brain, Kokua Recovery can step in and help them get healthy.

As an adolescent recovery program for teens ages 13-17, we provide a research-based approach shaped by many years of experience helping young people struggling with addiction and trauma, anxiety and depression. While we help teens on their path towards recovery we address the core patterns, triggers, and stressors that cause addictive behaviors in the first place.

Research has shown compellingly that individuals do better in smaller, gender specific settings where they are able to focus on personal healing and growth without distractions. Because of this, our two very unique locations in Colorado are kept purposefully smaller and are separated by gender. We create a clinically robust, yet family-like atmosphere, that changes lives. We are the place that will restore your teen.

Kokua restores health. Kokua restores happiness. Kokua restores relationships.
