Shadow Mountain Recovery Taos

Detox and assessment new mexicoShadow Mountain Recovery was established in 2007, with this, our first residential treatment facility, in Taos, New Mexico. We offer affordable treatment in a structured setting, utilizing traditional and evidence-based therapies.

Our campus is unique in that it is located on 38 acres in the Sangre de Christo Mountains of New Mexico. Many experiential therapeutic activities made possible by our location are incorporated into daily schedule.


“At Shadow Mountain Recovery, young adults are given the opportunity to foster meaningful therapeutic relationships that provide compassion and support, without judgment. These relationships allow men to reconnect with the world, rather than remaining in a self-destructive relationship with a substance. As the young adult male moves toward independence and autonomy, families regain balance and new relational bonds are formed.” – Manny Nsien, COO


The Program

Shadow Mountain Recovery provides extended residential treatment for men on our picturesque campus in Taos, New Mexico. Our goal is to provide a protective environment which includes medical stabilization, support, treatment for addictive disorders and potential co-occurring conditions, with supervision 24 hours per day, 7 days a week.

The Residential Treatment Program is designed for male clients who, where clinically assessed and indicated, require a highly therapeutically structured, clinically driven, accountability oriented treatment experience. We are committed to helping establish quality recovery while cultivating fun and adventure as part of the healthy pursuit of a life worth living.

Having fun in recovery is another important component of our program. Experiential activities are integral to Shadow Mountain Recovery’s culture. The Taos campus features a woodworking shop, a music studio, a gym, basketball and volleyball courts, and numerous hiking trails; allowing these activities to be seamlessly weaved into the daily program schedule.
