Advantage Treatment Center commenced services in Northeast Colorado in 2005 with the opening of a 106 male-bed residential Community Corrections Facility, located in Sterling, CO. Services at our Sterling addiction treatment center include: IRT, Diversion, Transition, Condition of Parole, Condition of Probation, and select Judicial Services.

Our addiction treatment center in Sterling is proud to be home to a 48-male-bed Intensive Residential Treatment Program offering cognitive-based interventions and treatment to encourage clients to live free of the effects of mood-altering substances.

The facility itself is located across Highway 61 from the Sterling Correctional Facility. It sits on 4 acres of commercial land and is surrounded by 39 acres of agricultural land, also owned by ATC owner Doug Carrigan. The facility was originally built as an Allis Chalmers Implement Dealer. It has since been utilized as an auction house, and an electrical contractor company, and was last utilized by the Department of Corrections, Heavy Equipment Program, prior to its purchase and renovation to male community corrections. Currently, the outlying acreage is being used for a large garden, and ATC management is looking forward to utilizing this space for more agricultural and ranching activities such as chickens, calves, hogs, etc., as well as expanded gardening and agricultural areas. Our addiction treatment center in Sterling has become a part of the local northeast Colorado community, by actively participating in relationships with local criminal justice agencies, treatment agencies, churches, and community fundraisers. ATC has an annual golf tournament that raises funds for local charities and has an annual food drive for the local community food bank.
