Rocky Mountain Treatment Center was founded with one goal - helping people overcome alcoholism and addiction and start new lives in recovery. We are located in a restored convent, which had a mission central to recovery - recognizing and developing humility - the foundation of every virtue.
Humility is a necessary component to help us out of the darkness and into the light. Humility becomes the strength and honesty we need to admit and accept we have struggles, failings and heartaches. Our building, nearing a 100-year birthday, has heard many stories -- We want to hear your story and restore your hope for a brighter future.
Barry Blenis and Jeff Quackenbush were raised in a farming community in Upstate New York. Over the span of fifty years, they remained close friends. In 2015, They found an opportunity at Rocky Mountain Treatment Center.
Jeff, previously in the hospitality business, and Barry, involved in helping the homeless community, reunited bringing their combined expertise and passions through a channel of; heart, hope, honesty, and compassion to help people turn off the dark in their lives and guide them to the light."Treatment never fails . . . But, it doesn't always succeed . . .
For treatment to be successful it must be received." -- Jeff Quackenbush
HEART . . .
Heart is to be compassionate; to be generous and forgiving; to have an especially compassionate heart.
HOPE . . .
Hope is an optimistic attitude of mind that is based on an expectation of positive outcomes related to events and circumstances in one's life.
Honesty is about understanding and acceptance of yourself, Knowing that you are wonderfully made and how you will get to know and enjoy the person you were created to be.
Compassion is the response to the suffering of others that motivates a desire to help them. Compassion motivates people to go out of their way to help the physical, spiritual, or emotional hurts and pains of another.
