About Colorado Recovery Solutions

Colorado Recovery Solutions, located in the greater Colorado Springs area, offers a variety of advanced psychiatric treatments and therapies. Dr. Ashley Johnson, a veteran and interventional psychiatrist, is passionate about providing the highest quality of care, through evidence-based neuromodulation treatments. She and her team expertly, yet compassionately apply these medications and modern technologies to alleviate common but treatment-resistant brain conditions.

The practice provides care to all adult genders, ages 18 and older, living in the Colorado Springs community and beyond. It’s also a safe place for patients from all walks of life, including military veterans, their families, transgender and LGBTQ+.

What makes Colorado Recovery Solutions different from traditional outpatient clinics is that the team offers holistic services along with cutting-edge treatments to provide the highest quality of neuropsychiatric care. The practice is also verified by Psychology Today and is the only psychiatrist-owned, Spravato (esketamine) REMS-certified treatment center in Colorado Springs.

Patients suffering from Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, and OCD can expect compassionate and integrative care at Colorado Recovery Solutions. The team specializes in Ketamine services and Deep TMS therapy. However, the CRS team does not focus on only one type of therapy; instead, they use an interventional, synergistic and collaborative approach to work with your current therapist or prescriber, where traditional medication and psychotherapy have not been effective. The team at Colorado Recovery Solutions is here to provide advanced neuropsychiatric services for treatment-resistant conditions, so that people can find hope and healing for an improved quality of life.

To start your healing journey, call us today at 719-622-6522. We look forward to meeting you!
