Drug Addiction Treatment in Colorado

Client Testimony


Courage II Change

I am shedding a tear at this very moment as I write this response. It is happy tears that when one desperate lost soul reaches out to someone, anyone that will listen, that my call was answered. There was an Angel on the other end of the phone that day that threw a line of hope, Light and encouragement to save myself from the hell of addiction.

It is because of you Judy Miller, that you took a chance and said, "don't worry about that, just get down here." It was then that I melted. From that day on I soaked in every opportunity of the daily challenges while at the ranch. It was an interesting ride and experience that has changed my life and focus.

There is a piece of me that every day sheds a little tear for the simple fact that a Blessing, an Angel, a Universal Being held out her hand and said, "save your Life." And I took that gift and will carry it until it is time to move on to the next Life journey. I am 78 days sober, focused, energized and roaring to kick my addiction in it's ugly a**.

I honor you everyday Judy with Love, Light, Good Energy and Sobriety. Thank you again for sharing this moment with me via long distance, yet there is a raw piece of me being presented and i am sending this with humility and gratitude. May the Creator always keep his hand upon you, the staff, the clients, the ranch, the IOP clients and volunteers that make such a beautiful respite.

Again just a simple hello from a former desperate lost soul who stood up and took the reigns, grew some balls and has the Courage II Change. Prayers and Blessings. Mitakuye Oyasin (all my relations).

* P. S. ~ It is okay if you share this as well. Maybe a glimmer of Light and reflection can be seen and felt from the work, the Love and the Light created from the Beautiful souls that are Team C2C. They have created something Beautiful.

Thank You!

With the help of all of you at Courage 2 Change,
I now have the best mother's day gift possible -- my son.

Coming to Colorado was such a blessing. Seeing the changes in him has been overwhelming. His eyes are bright, his smile is real, and for the first time
I see a real Man inside of him!

I missed him so much these past 8 years.

There is a saying: "A mother is only as happy as her least happy child." That has been true for me. Knowing my son has been an addict (even before he believed he was) was a dark cloud that hung over me all of these years. I could never shake it.

Now there is so much hope. I believe he has the power to stick with this new sobriety. It won't be easy, but I see the determination in him. He can use this strength to do good things and even help others.

Love and Grateful for you and your loving staff


Judith Ann Miller is one of the most AMAZING women that I know! She is the very reason why I am a Successful business owner of Organo Gold. Not only that but it was at her Recovery Ranch Courage to Change Addiction Recovery Center that my life began to truly change. You can do ANYTHING if you set your mind to it but also with Incredible support.

Thank You Judy and all the staff at C2C

The Gift of Life

I just wanted to thank you all for your hospitality… thank you all for what you have given me. Two years ago, you handed me my life back, and this year you returned the life of a loved one. Not only have you all twice given me the gift of life, but you have all given me a whole new set of role models and heroes. I was very surprised as you are the ones who did all the work and it is I who owe you. Thank you for the beautiful pin. I am framing it and putting it on the wall.

You Saved My Life

Good morning I don't know if you remember me but I will never forget you. You helped save my life. With your help and the C2C program today I celebrate 3yrs sober. I can't thank you enough for giving me my life back. Much love and respect.

Courage to Change - A True Healing Experience

Judy has helped my line of thinking... getting to know her has given me a new outlook. Ross has helped me with my recovery. He is open and honest. The nurse is a tremendous nurse. Her talent for healing people is the best part of this program. The Certified Massage therapist (CMT) has brought relief to my recovery with such a happy and good outlook. Her massages have helped my broken left shoulder. She has helped me with my pain much more than pills do.

Refreshing and Calming Experience

This has been the most refreshing and calming place I can ever remember. It is exactly what I needed, especially after 7-8 years of the ups and downs (mostly downs) of alcohol addiction. Compared to all the other rehabs that I have been to - The Courage to Change Program has them all beat - head over heels - in every respect. Thanks once again for the many blessings of you and this wonderful place.

A Wonderful Alternative to Traditional Programs

Judy and her people are the best thing that ever happened to me. I had tried so many times to get sober and stay sober to no avail. In my deepest drunkest moment, I made a phone call to Judith and she dropped everything to come and get me. From that moment on things started to turn around for me. Through her program and a combination of mind, body and spiritual repair I knew this was exactly what I had been looking for. She and several others have instituted a program that literally changed my world. Please consider this program as a wonderful alternative to the ones that are traditional. I feel you would be very encouraged at the outcomes it has made on so many lives. I speak and write from my own personal experiences. I am now ready to enter a new and wonderful life thanks to her and the Courage to Change program. I have finally found renewed hope that I didn't think existed.

I'll miss the peacefulness of the ranch-style setting

It's been great. I really appreciate all you've done for me. You really helped me see that I do have some good in me. It's been a long time since I felt like that. I'll miss the peacefulness and how much you made me feel like family. I will be back to ride the horses. I love you guys!

Tranquility of Spirit

Thank you for giving me the Courage to Change! Tranquility of my spirt is what I want to find. I believe in myself for the first time. I know that I can't do it on my own, but I am not alone. God's hand has touched my heart and memories. For the first time in my life I do not have fear of tomorrow.

Wonderful Place

I just wanted to say thanks for all the help you have given me. This is a wonderful place and I know you all help a lot of people here. I wish I had found this place sooner.

Wonderful Program

This is a commendation for your program at Courage to Change of which our son took part in. Since our son returned from the program, I have seen a great difference in his personality. He spends time thinking things through in an effort to make the correct decisions on many aspects of life.

Better Perspective on Life

My dad was a resident at Courage to Change. I believe the program helped him very much because it is the first time in his life he is not drinking. And he has a better perspective on life and is making good decisions in life and is looking for a job. Thank You For Giving Me My Dad Back.

Having Fun Without Alcohol and Drugs

Being able to have fun and just enjoy life without alcohol or drugs is the best feeling in the world. I never knew that was possible. The program made it possible. It really saved my life. Thank You Judith Miller.

Courage to Change Saved My Life

After being a functioning alcoholic for twenty-five years, I sought help with courage to change. I found myself unable to function in society any longer due to my addiction. Having stopped drinking several times before... I thought I could do it again if only for a while. So I decided to try the amino acid program and after just two weeks I realized my cravings were diminishing. Now I have five months sober and have no desire to drink. I truly believe the Courage to Change program along with the amino acids and Judith Miller have changed my life.

The Tale of Two Wolves

Two Wolves

Watch this Inspiring "Tale of Two Wolves" Video

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.

He said, "My son, The battle is between two wolves inside us all."

"One is Evil."

"It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego."

"The other is Good."

"It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith."

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather:

"Which wolf wins?"

The old Cherokee simply replied:

"The one you feed."
