ARCHway believes in recovery from the disease of addiction.
An Advocate for Others in Recovery
Colton Baker is in charge of community relations with the ARCHway Institute, an EPICC (“Engaging Patients in Care Coordination”) Outreach Coach with Comtrea, a manager at Recovery House, and a person in long term recovery.
Mr. Baker is working in his community to develop resources and assist individuals and families to recover from the disease of addiction. With ARCHway, he works to diminish the stigma and bridge the gaps in care for those struggling with substance use and mental health disorders. He does this through communication with a variety of stakeholders and by developing and providing access to resources.

Mr. Baker works on the EPICC Outreach project coordinated through Behavioral Health Network. He is housed at Comtrea, a local treatment provider, where he makes a great addition to their team as well. With his wealth of knowledge, Mr. Baker helps connect individuals, hospitals and behavioral health centers with access to recovery resources. He meets with clients at their most vulnerable moments to provide hope through treatment, medication and community support.
In addition, Mr. Baker currently manages a sober living home with Recovery House. Colton models recovery as it was modeled for him. Recovery House is a culture of respect where, first and foremost, the men pay it forward, giving of themselves in the same way they were provided for when they first found themselves in the houses. Colton has been a part of building this culture.
Mr. Baker sits on the St. Louis NCADA Wellness Council (National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse), as well as the MO-Hope advisory board. He is a person in long-term recovery and can personally testify to the benefits of medical and psychological treatment in sobriety.
