Colorado Drug Rehab...Glenwood Springs, Colorado
The City of Glenwood Springs is the county seat and the most populous city of Garfield County, Colorado. The United States Census Bureau estimated that the city population was 8,564 in 2005. Glenwood Springs is home to one of the campuses in the Colorado Mountain College system.
Glenwood Springs was named after Glenwood Springs, Iowa, the home of the city founder's wife, who was homesick in the 1880 and wanted to rename the town from Difiance to Glenwood Springs. In the 1800s it was a camp town for gold miners and prospectors, and all of the saloons and brothels that accompany that lifestyle. The town's population were gunslinger, prostitutes, alcoholics and gamblers.
The city has had its famous visitors, like Teddy Roosevelt, who spent an entire summer living in the historic Hotel Colorado, which is pictured above. Glenwood Springs lies about 45 miles north of Glenwood Springs and 60 miles west of Vail, giving it access to the "party crowd" of Colorado skiiers.
Glenwood Springs is well known for the Yampa Hot Springs vapor caves and historic underground steam baths. These springs were used for over 100 years, originally by the Ute Indians and today by locals and tourist for their relaxing 110 degree mineral baths.
