Our leaders are the driving force behind our success
M. Beth Baldwin is the CEO and Supervising Counselor at Colorado Addictions Consulting. She is an Internationally Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor (ICADC).
“How do I help my child?” is the question that has haunted parents and one that Beth Baldwin has devoted her 25-year career to answering. Growing up in an under-resourced community in North Little Rock, Arkansas, Beth understood the challenges of limited access to adequate resources and committed herself to becoming a pillar of support for others in need. During her six year service in the United States Army, she completed a professional development course that honed her leadership skills, which she later applied to serving her community.
Determined to assist the most vulnerable – children in need – Beth leveraged her Army experience in crisis management and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Services from the Metropolitan State University of Denver, with a certification in Addiction Studies and an emphasis on high-risk youth. Driven by her dream to create a sanctuary for children struggling with substance abuse, Beth pursued further training and earned her International Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor certification.
This prestigious certification demonstrates Beth’s unwavering commitment to professional excellence and her dedication to helping those grappling with addiction. Her credentials, awarded by the International Certification and Reciprocity Consortium, signify her mastery of core competencies in addiction counseling and adherence to ethical and professional standards. Today, Beth Baldwin’s expertise is globally recognized, enabling her to better support children and their families in overcoming addiction.
Our team of highly trained and experienced counselors are leading experts in this field and their mission is help individuals and families create positive changes in their lives.

Just want to say thank you once again for all you provided. Not only did I learn about what I did wrong and how to prevent it in the future but I learned much about myself as a whole. Everyone was so helpful specially Beth. I love her very much and we’ll miss you all. I’ll reach out in the near future to tell you how everything is going with me.
I thank you all so much for your help in getting through this difficult time and wish you much happiness, health and success always. Beth – from my intake day forward you treated me with the utmost of respect in spite of my mistake and your professionalism and willingness to help me in all ways will not be forgotten. Stephanie – you are likely the kindest, most compassionate person I’ve ever worked with and I thank you for the love and care you give to all of your clients.
Stephanie, Beth, and Melinda are such incredible humans who truly care and love to watch change for the better. I’m so grateful for their warmth, kindness, and understanding! Such an amazing group of people. They gave me guidance and helped me push myself towards a brighter future. Calm and caring was how the environment was the entire time I was there. My time here, from beginning to end, was a very positive experience. I learned a lot and met other individuals going through many of the same challenges. This experience was extremely helpful along with the excellent support of our class therapist.
Beth and the other counselors show so much support and make this whole process a lot easier. Melinda, the front desk lady, is one of the nicest, funniest people here. Coming to this place will be a life-changing and great experience.
No one wants to go through this hard situation. I was so pleased to feel safe and uplifted, and get advice with perspective. The counselors are there to help you get through the situation the best way possible. I was lucky to find CAConsulting.
The team here was great! Not only did they teach me how to better myself, they did it in a fun way that was like no other classes I’ve ever attended. The culture was awesome, open, inviting and educational!
This place is great! Very welcoming environment and friendly staff!
Amazing staff that will definitely put a smile on your face.
Very respectable and helpful. Not there to target you, just there to help.
