ALAMOSA — In the fall of 2022, the Valley Courier reported that founders Justin Riley, Kim Reed and Paul Reed of “Hope in the Valley,” a new treatment and recovery center, had signed the dotted line to purchase the 6,700 square foot building that would ultimately become the site of their facility from Alamosa County.

Last week, less than two years later, an announcement signed and sent out by Kim Reed, also serving as development director, notified the public that they have accomplished what they said they would do.

“It is with great excitement and profound gratitude that we announce the official opening of Hope in the Valley, a new treatment and recovery center dedicated to serving individuals battling addiction and mental health challenges,” Kim Reed’s announcement reads.

“As of today, our doors are open to providing much-needed support to those in need. At Hope in the Valley, we are proud to offer 10 detox beds for immediate assistance, along with intensive outpatient therapy and partial hospitalization programs.

“While our ribbon-cutting ceremony opening is scheduled for July 11, we are already actively helping those in need. It is truly heartwarming to see the community's overwhelming response, with a waiting list already in place.

“We are honored to announce that Attorney General (Phil) Weiser will be joining us for the ribbon-cutting ceremony on July 11. Until then, we urge anyone who knows someone struggling with addiction to reach out to our facility without delay.

 “Our location behind the sheriff's office in Alamosa, 1317 17th St., Alamosa, serves as a beacon of hope for those seeking help.

 “As we embark on this journey, we humbly ask for your prayers, support, and continued assistance in making Hope in the Valley a shining light of hope for the entire San Luis Valley.

“Together, we can make a positive impact and provide much-needed resources to those who need it most.

 “Thank you for your unwavering support!”
