University Park Behavioral Health is a modern, innovative healthcare organization composed of six fully accredited treatment centers offering a path to recovery to those suffering with substance use and mental health issues.

Our cutting-edge Medical Detox and Assessment Programs in Colorado Springs, CO, Albuquerque, NM, and St. George, UT, shatter the mold of traditional long-term residential care by offering medically-supervised detox services alongside a two-week comprehensive psychological, psychiatric and medical assessment. There is nothing like this offering in the field, and it provides a unique opportunity for clients to not only cleanse their systems of abused substances, but also receive a complete assessment of their condition, and a clear and honest recommendation for follow-up treatment, as needed.

For those desiring full-featured residential care, we offer three distinct offerings ranging from our mixed-gender, non-12-Step program in Austin to our gender-specific men’s program in Taos, New Mexico, and our women’s-only treatment program in Cascade, Colorado.

Whatever your need, whatever your struggle, University Park has you covered. We hope you’ll take a few minutes to explore our website and get acquainted with our excellent programs and dedicated professionals.

“We offer individualized, effective, and innovative solutions for your clients, neighbors, colleagues, friends, acquaintances, and family members struggling with prescription pill dependency, substance abuse, or addiction. Our Industry has consistently struggled to provide high-quality services with open minded, assessment driven approaches that improve the quality of life for clients and family members. Our clients are talented, capable men and women who need answers and solutions.”

– Paul Auchterlonie, CEO
