Welcome Message

Welcome to Southern Peaks Regional Treatment Center

By Rob Paetow

My name is Rob Paetow, Divisional Director for Abraxas Youth & Family Services. I would like to personally thank you for visiting our website.

The Southern Peaks Regional Treatment Center, located in Cañon City, Colorado, is a nationally recognized behavioral health program for both male and female adolescents. We offer behavioral health and education services which are facilitated through trauma informed, gender responsive, and culturally based treatment approaches. In addition, Southern Peaks is fully accredited by Joint Commission, while also a partner of the Sanctuary Institute.

The goal of SouthernPeaksRTC.com is to provide you with access to the most current and detailed information about our program. As you tour this website, please take an opportunity to view our program videos and document downloads. Both are excellent resources to help you gain insight into our program.

Once you have completed your tour of the website, please feel free to contact us for more information, or schedule a visit to our facility. We are proud of our program’s services and look forward to sharing it with you.

Thank You,


Rob Paetow
