Treatment at The Stout Street Foundation
Alcoholism and addiction affects an individual's biological, emotional, social and spiritual well-being. Our treatment program is specifically designed to treat the physical, emotional, spiritual and psychosocial aspects of this disease – a holistic approach to recovery. Although addiction can be a chronic progressive illness, we believe that every person has within them the capacity to change, grow and recover. Our program is designed to enhance each person's intrinsic motivation to change while providing the tools necessary to do so.
Our program provides intensive inpatient services to adult men and women who have identified substance abuse as a major life problem. The program begins with a comprehensive psychiatric, emotional, social, family and spiritual assessment. This is reviewed with each client who will participate with the treatment team in developing an individualized plan of care which address their needs and build on their strengths.Learn More

Carrie Packard, Development Director
Sitting in front of a Denver Broncos football game at four years old, Carrie Packard saw her future: “I’m going to make better commercials for the United Way. Those stink.”
A little under two decades later, armed with a host of volunteer experience and a degree in Broadcast Production Management from the University of Colorado, Carrie went forth and became…the first female Assistant General Manager in minor league baseball’s Midwest League. She never did make commercials.
Somehow, that sales and customer service experience, along with modeling from a mother in social services, and a father in education consulting and fundraising lead Carrie to a career in fundraising and donor relations, while still carrying that passion for sports, especially the Denver Broncos.
Carrie joined Stout Street Foundation in September 2019 to help supporters experience their individual “Ah-Ha” moment with Stout Street Foundation as they see the impact they can have on residents’ lives.
When not at work, Carrie and her husband Bob can be seen literally running around the metro area, having spent more than a decade as running coaches; enjoying a local sporting event or at a local dog park with their two fur-kids. Rarely will you catch Carrie without a skein of yarn and knitting needles, making use of any downtime to whip up hand knit socks.
