Red Door Life was founded in 2005 to improve the recovery outcomes for people suffering from substance use disorders and mental health issues. Our founders are a technology entrepreneur and a licensed clinician with trauma expertise who had worked in the treatment industry for 20 years. 


We are fed up with the broken system of addiction and mental health treatment services.  The treatment industry is plagued by an antiquated care model, emulating a car wash mentality.  Treatment centers provide intensive services for thirty, sixty, or ninety days only to have a majority of people relapse on discharge and continue to suffer with mental health issues.   


The car wash model does not work! At Red Door Life, we've redesigned our model of care to be a partnership between our clients and their professional advisors and clinicians.  We do not require thirty, sixty, or ninety days of residential care where our clients are isolated from their loved ones, careers, and lifestyle.  Instead we offer flexible lengths of care, a system of continual learning between the client and their team, and an abundance of engaging groups, activities, and adventures. 


We partner with our clients on their journey of recovery.  We provide comprehensive services that support and foster the health of our customers. We offer a variety of treatments, classes and services to improve and help clients maintain their optimal health. Whether you are seeking detox, residential, experiencing pain or simply want to improve your physical and mental fitness, Red Door Life provides the resources to do so in a healing and friendly environment.
