I am looking for a rehab center for my 27 yr old son who lives in Denver. He has just agreed that he is an alcoholic, desperately needs to turn his life around and is willing to seek treatment. This has been a terrible problem for many years. He has no job but I believe he may have Medicaid.

I’m looking for a good rehabilitation treatment center, hopefully Christian based, for my adoptive son. He’s been battling addiction for a while now and has finally decided it’s time to clean up his act.
