The ARCHES program is run at Arapahoe County Residential Center (ACRC). It is a Residential Dual Diagnosis Treatment (RDDT) program designed to address substance abuse and mental health concurrently, and is offered separately to both men and women. Referred clients are pre-screened for admittance to the program to ensure their needs will be addressed through participation in ARCHES. If they are accepted into community corrections and subsequently meet eligibility criteria for RDDT, clients complete an intake evaluation in order to develop an individualized treatment plan and goals. 

The women’s treatment program is composed of:

  • Weekly ARCHES Substance Abuse group
  • Weekly Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) group
  • Weekly Seeking Safety group
  • Weekly Individual Therapy
 
The men’s treatment program is composed of:

    • Weekly ARCHES Substance Abuse group
    • Weekly Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) group
    • Weekly Thinking 4 a Change (T4C) group
    • Weekly Individual Therapy 

Clients stay in the ARCHES Program for a minimum of six months, dependent upon treatment progression. Upon successful completion, the clients participate in a small graduation ritual during group, and an aftercare plan is developed to support their continued progress on their identified treatment goals.
