Colorado Addiction Treatment Center Launches Expansion Effort

Valley Hope’s Building Hope Parker Project will expand patient treatment capacity, and better help address Colorado’s addiction epidemic ~

Valley Hope will launch a $12 million expansion and renovation of its Parker residential drug and alcohol addiction treatment center on August 17. Valley Hope President and CEO Steve Knuth, Board Chair Tom Lolley and Senior Vice President Dr. Patrick Hall are scheduled to speak and participate.

The new expansion project will help the nonprofit treatment center meet growing needs for effective, high quality substance use disorder (SUD) treatment in the Denver area and across Colorado. Valley Hope has a consistent waiting list for admission due to the high demand for services.

The Building Hope Parker Project Campaign, managed by the Valley Hope Foundation, seeks to develop a portion of the funding for the multi-million dollar expansion. Upon completion, the project will significantly expand access to immediate treatment services to people struggling with drug and alcohol addiction.

Valley Hope is a nationally certified drug and alcohol addiction treatment organization with 19 residential and outpatient facilities in seven states. Valley Hope of Parker has served the state of Colorado since 1989, providing substance use disorder (SUD) treatment that includes medically-monitored detox and withdrawal management, residential addiction treatment and family counseling. Valley Hope also operates an outpatient treatment center in Denver.

“While the addiction epidemic resurges in Colorado, this expansion will position Valley Hope to treat more people and help them find healing in lifelong recovery,” said President and CEO Steve Knuth. “Having instant access to treatment for those struggling can often make the difference between life and death.

“The Building Hope Parker Project will provide capacity to immediately serve all who come to us seeking help – to help more people reclaim their lives from addiction.”
