Ken Singer founded Rangeview Counseling Center of Boulder, Colorado in 1987. After beginning his career by earning a doctorate in genetics, Singer later changed paths to follow his true passion for psychotherapy, and eventually emerged as a leader in his field.
Today, Rangeview is an outpatient substance abuse and mental health facility which caters largely to court-ordered DUI/DWAI/DUID offenders, with a variety of therapy options available. Their programs can address alcohol and drug addiction, eating disorders, emotional and mental health issues all in two locations, Boulder and Fraser. All counseling, therapy, groups and classes are based on the practices of CBT and Motivational Interviewing (MI).
Treatment and Staff
For court-ordered clients, the majority of required classes take place at the Fraser location in a condominium complex. There are two levels of therapy and educational classes for DUI offenders—Level One consists of educational courses six times a week in two-hour increments, and Level Two takes place only on Mondays for two hours. There are substance abuse and mental health assessments available on Monday evenings and between 12 and 13 group sessions per week. There are no 12-step groups available at either facility, though Rangeview supports 12-step based recovery.
Counselors work with clients on individualized treatment programs at both the Fraser and Boulder locations. If a client with either an addiction or an eating disorder calls in, Rangeview schedules individual therapy first at the Boulder facility. The Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) Level One education course for the DUI program requires two six-hour classes over two weeks. This course is available for court-ordered and independent clients.
The staff at Rangeview includes licensed social workers, certified mental health and addiction counselors, registered psychotherapists, teachers and interns.
Other classes and treatment programs at Rangeview include marijuana education and treatment, relapse prevention, anger management and court readiness in Stage Two of treatment. These courses are optional for both DUI/DWI and voluntary clients. Finally, alumni and other potential clients can keep up with Rangeview Counseling Center on their blog.
Ultimately, Rangeview Counseling Center is geared more towards those who have been penalized for alcohol or drug-related charges than to those voluntarily seeking therapy for alcohol or drug addiction. The counseling facilities give clients the ability to choose how far to pursue their education about substance abuse, and how frequently to attend in therapy and group sessions outside of court-ordered mandates. Still, the education provided to clients with DUI/DWI charges offers hope and is a necessary first step on the road to recovery.
