Response to "Anonymous" - On behalf of AIM House, I’d like to really directly address the concerns you’ve noted in your Google review. I’m sorry you chose this forum to bring up these complaints; unfortunately, there’s no way for me to speak to this without sounding defensive. I’m also cognizant that you’re still in the Boulder area, and I don’t want to say anything that would disclose your identity to others. I’m sorry you are still struggling. We are all saddened that you chose a course of action during your time with us that led to your dismissal – but, our rules are designed to hold healthy boundaries for each participant, and our community as well. You knew, and agreed to, these conditions when you enrolled. However, if you are in dire need of assistance, please contact anyone here; you know how to reach us. And if you’d like to call me personally to discuss your complaints, I’m happy to talk with you. Receiving feedback from former participants is never something we shy away from! I hope you will reach out to us, because some of what you spoke to in your Google review was really incorrect. Nevertheless, it saddens me to know you’re hurting this much. Rather than lash out at us online, please take this opportunity to directly relate to us in a way that might manifest a positive shift. To quote Ghandi, “be the change you wish to see in the world”. Respectfully, Julie Randall Director of Operations AIM House

I found Aim House to be a form of a therapeutic boarding school. I made great friends and worked with my mentor who I love and trust. Individual therapy and groups were helpful, and I learned how to get started on my own life with support. I didn’t feel like a patient or like I was in prison. The only annoying thing was curfews but that is to be expected. I made good friends, I stayed in the area, I still talk with my mentor and friends from my group, and I still have support from them.

AIM House has been around for a very long time. There is reason for that...its a great program. I was a client at AIM House and I also was given the opportunity to work there as a Mentor Staff. I am so incredibly grateful to the founder of this program for so many reasons. He is my close friend and soul brother to this day. AIM House has employees who have been there since the beginning and that clearly says something. I am so grateful for what AIM House has provided me and the people who are there today are family to me.

My son was a participant at AIM House and my experience (as a parent) was a bit different than those described below. AIM provided the environment, mentoring, opportunities and tools necessary for him to find his path forward. It also provided him with a safe place to fail and to reflect. There were long periods where my son simply chose not take advantage of the opportunities he was presented with, or maybe he wasn't ready to take advantage of them. He struggled and blamed others for his struggles. But then, he would take responsibility for himself and his successes and failures, and grow. Rinse and repeat. Sound familiar?When this happened at home, the struggle-and-blame spiral was downward. After wilderness and then enrolling at AIM, the trajectory was very definitely upward (though not linear). It takes work, and if one enrolls at AIM House expecting that their mentor or the program director is going to do the work for them, they will be sadly mistaken. If instead, one enters AIM House expecting guidance and a framework in which to do the necessary hard work, the rewards will manifest themselves. Also, I have met many of the staff, and (surprise!) they are regular human beings doing the very best they can. I never once doubted that that they placed my son's best interests anything other than first. I trusted my son to Danny and the staff at AIM House and they did not let him (or me) down. His recovery after AIM is his work, his journey, his responsibility and ultimately, his success - if HE chooses it.

I had a completely different experience at AIM House then I just read. I am a parent and sent my son to Aim house for transitional living after he completed a wilderness program. Prior to wilderness my son K. (I will respect his privacy) was not engaging in his life, he wouldn't engage in therapy, in school even with his family. He thought about suicide and would isolate in his room most of the day watching movies, playing games or sleeping. After wilderness he was willing to attend a transitional program and chose one that two of his group mates went to. He spoke to both of them before agreeing on the program which was AIM House. We were nervous hearing about Boulder we had never been ourselves but after talking with staff and his therapist in wilderness we all decided AIM was a great option for him. With in two months my son completed all credits and earned his HS diploma. He was talking with people everyday, he started working with the creative program and playing music and writing music again. There were times he really struggled and wanted to come home. The therapist and mentor at AIM helped him and us talk it through on why it was important for him to stay and complete something. Overtime he started falling back into any old pattern they worked with him he went on a hike tried something new. He woke up. He grew up. He isn't perfect and he struggles with everyday things like any of us do but he has tools now and was reminded everyday how to use them and rely on them and how to care for himself. I am forever grateful to AIM House. He learned wonderful things in wilderness but he practiced them with you and we were given support in holding a boundary and talked with other parents at family workshop about how hard that was but with the support we knew we were doing the right things and our son knows it was the right thing. He has decided to stay in Boulder he is attending college and working. We couldn't ask for more than that.

Situated in Boulder, Colorado, Aim House has treatment options for those who are seeking help for drug and alcohol addiction.
Addiction is a progressive disease of the mind that will continue to get worse with time if it goes untreated. It will continue to worsen without the help of a recovery program. It’s important that those who are addicted to drugs and alcohol seek the help of Aim House in order to regain the life that has become lost to addiction.
Through a thorough patient evaluation, addicts who attend treatment at Aim House can get a personalized treatment plan made. The assessment is intended to depict the severity of the addiction as well as to learn more about the individual themselves. This way, a comprehensive treatment program can be put in place in order to reap the desired result; that being long-lasting abstinence from drugs and alcohol.
Throughout the patient’s time in treatment at Aim House, the addict will learn new vital coping mechanisms and trigger management skills. These will help the addict adapt to a new life that is free of substance abuse when they reenter society. Since many addicts relapse, it is inherently important that they avoid certain settings or social circles that will pressure them to use.
At Aim House, we believe that all addicts have the courage within to overcome their drug and alcohol addiction. Through the constant support of counselors and professional advisors working with addict’s daily, recovery is possible. Despite how long one has been an addict for, recovery is still absolutely attainable. Treatment is not a one-size-fits-all approach and at Aim House, treating each patient with individuality is of utmost importance.
Breaking the vicious cycle of addiction is tough, but with professional counselors and effective treatment options in place, sobriety is closer than it seems. Get in touch with Aim House today at www.Aimhouse.ComAHSitemainhome.Aspx to learn more about how recovery can help pave a new life path. When the final level of sustained sobriety is reached, a feeling of contentment will ensue and this is something to be extremely proud of.
