The Mile High Recovery Project, a program of Mile High Behavioral Healthcare/The Denver ELEMENT, addresses a wide-range of substance use issues from the standpoint of a gay and bisexual experience. 

A Ryan White provider, The Mile High Recovery Project has expertise in drugs affecting the gay community such as meth and designer drugs. Designer drugs often fit around existing drug laws, but can be risky. These drugs are not well-known or monitored and it is more likely for accidents to happen that can lead to accidental death and overdoses.

Additionally, Mile High Recovery Project recently added a new group specifically focusing on the mental health of LGBT and gender non-conforming folks.  The group provides a queer friendly space to talk about issues and concerns affecting your life. 

Group sessions, one-on-one counseling, peer-to-peer support groups and holistic approaches are offered to support an individual’s journey through recovery. Treatment plans are developed to address alcohol use, drug abuse, self-esteem, healthy living, and sustained sobriety in a supportive environment free from judgment and shame and informed by the queer-lived experience.
