Donations are used to:

  1. Provide scholarships for those facing financial barriers, including those who are uninsured or underinsured.
  2. Increase the number of people who can access treatment through our center.
  3. Expand after-care programs to help individuals achieve and maintain long-term sobriety.

Client testimonials

Paul A (client): "I've tried other programs...The difference is that at Spero I wasn't learning about my addiction as much as I was learning about how to live a life in recovery. At Spero, I was introduced to the 12-steps and have since become an active member in the recovery community. Coming to Spero gave me hope again for a full life and I didn't think I would ever have that."

Calen B (client): "I don't think I ever could have imagined what it would be like not drinking anymore. Since Spero, I have a huge community of friends in recovery and was able to take the time to really dive into doing the 12-steps. Now I have people I can call, meetings I'm expected to be at, events I'm invited to, newcomers to take to coffee, hikes to lead... I didn't think I'd have this kind of life. I'm grateful for everything I had to go through in order to now get to live this life."

Nancy P (family member): "My son had been to 4 treatment programs but nothing was like this for him. He's never come out and been so connected to a recovery community. I thought I would have to motivate him to stay serious after leaving Spero, which is what happened every time before, but something is so different about him this time. He calls his sponsor daily, he goes to meetings, has breakfast with other people in recovery weekly, and doesn't act like he's 'cured.' He continues to pursue his recovery, even after Spero, which I never thought could happen."


Our mission is to improve the quality of life for individuals, families and communities affected by alcohol and drug dependency by providing access to affordable and effective treatment.

Spero relies on scholarship funds to help cover the cost of treatment and programs for individuals who are facing financial barriers.

Background Statement

Spero Recovery was founded in 2019 to give hope to an underserved community who are uninsured, underinsured, or unable to pay for treatment.

We are proud to be one of the most affordable and accessible 30- to 90-day recovery programs available in Colorado.

Our program is run by dedicated staff and volunteers who have recovered from their own addictions. Through personal experience and empathy, our team can provide the care and support you or your loved one needs to create a better life in recovery.
