Red Mountain Colorado

Red Mountain Colorado is a residential treatment center for boys ages 13-17 struggling with substance abuse, addiction, and trauma. 

When a teen struggles from substance abuse and at least one other mental health concern we call this dual diagnosis disorder or having co-occurring conditions. We treat all of the presenting mental health symptoms with an integrated approach to create a path to psychosocial wellness.

Our holistic approach is based on mindfulness programming, which sets us apart from other recovery programs for teens. Red Mountain Colorado offers access to excellent clinical services, as well as a daily meditation program taught by a Zen Sensei and a Tibetan Meditation Instructor.  We also incorporate adventure therapy, group therapy, hiking, martial arts, yoga, physical fitness, and academic support to help young boys thrive in multiple areas of their lives.

Like other recovery programs for teens, we offer 12-step programming; however, it is not the foundation of our program. We individualize our group and individual therapy so that those who connect with and need the 12 Steps have a high level of engagement with them, while those who do not qualify for the issues the 12 Steps address have the opportunity to engage in other healing modalities more suited to them. Other models we implement include Rational Recovery, SMART Recovery, Refuge Recovery, and our own, highly specialized mindfulness-based approach to treatment.

Rather than focusing on substance use as a problem behavior, we look at other factors in teens’ lives that have contributed to their substance abuse. Our students are gently guided by our highly seasoned staff away from destructive patterns and choices toward productive, healthy patterns and choices. 

Our nurturing environment provides a variety of experiential opportunities for teens to build confidence, develop relationships, give back to the community, and set personal goals based on their passions and strengths. Our goal is to help students experience personal growth in areas related to their mind, body, and spirit.


I can’t thank the people at Red Mountain enough. I would recommend RMC to any parents looking for a community where their child can safely make mistakes, recover, and grow.

Mindfulness saved my life.  Learning how to watch my thoughts, feelings and impulses arise and fall saved me from a self-destructive path fueled by past trauma and poor choices.  Today I am living my dream teaching and mentoring young people who are just like I was, and helping them find a path of productivity and peace.

Kera Miller has worked in the field of mental health since 1998, and has been a clinician since 2005. She has worked with adolescents and young adults in residential, inpatient, day treatment, and outpatient/community-based settings, including14 years working with Vive Family Support Program as a direct care mentor, then Colorado Regional Director and eventually the National Clinical Director.

Effective therapy includes building a relationship, involving the family unit, and seeking to understand the motivation for growth and change, as well as the thoughts and feelings that may impede that growth.

Kera is originally from Iowa, and is an avid and often vociferous Iowa Hawkeyes fan. She has lived in Colorado since 2001 and appreciates being so close to the mountains and all the beauty they offer. When not investing time with her clients, Kera enjoys hiking and snowshoeing and international travel.
