Addiction Treatment Programs in Colorado

Quality expertise for drug and alcohol addiction in Colorado, backed by heart

Addiction and illicit drug use have been a growing problem in the country for years. In fact, an estimated 24.6 million Americans aged 12 or older had used an illicit drug in the past month, according to a 2013 survey. The abuse of prescription drugs, especially painkillers, has also become more common than in previous decades. This is why drug treatment centers in Colorado and throughout the country are offering more individualized rehabilitation treatment programs.

If you’re seeking substance abuse treatment, Colorado offers a wide range of options, including inpatient and outpatient care. Addiction treatment centers in Colorado have helped thousands of men and women transition to a healthy life that isn’t ruled by drugs or alcohol. The Recovery Village Palmer Lake is a key player in these efforts.

Recovery Village is an amazing place. I was referred by someone who had gone through treatment here and I’m so happy I made the step. I didn’t want to go to a treatment facility as large as RC but it exceeded my expectations. Even though it is larger and they were short-staffed while there, the staff was still amazing at one-on-one care. They will go above and beyond. After residential treatment, the groups become smaller and trust and confidentiality are key. The group therapists have all had their trials in life too and can relate. Nurses, group therapists, medical staff, case workers, BHT’s and individual therapists truly care about each client. And those that I saw discharge early were clearly not ready to make the changes necessary but I wish them the best and hope they return to get their full treatment. This place is all about 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc chances. They would rather serve you many times than to learn you lost your life. Please, if you want to try to make your life better, reach out. I recommend Recovery Village to anyone who wants to work on their mental health while understanding their addiction. To me, you can’t do one without the other. Best wishes to everyone in their search for sobriety.

The Recovery Village has the community, education and trauma care I needed for me to finally understand what was going on. They provided me with the skills I needed to continue this enjoyable life. The kindness and understanding of the BHTs, clinicians and staff was unexpected and beyond amazing. Thank you to all the humans and wild animals that have made this possible! 💕 Merry Christmas!!

Types of Rehab Centers in Colorado

Because no two cases of substance abuse are exactly the same, no two Colorado rehab centers are completely alike either. Not every facility offers a wide range of programs or levels of care. Some of the different types of programs available at rehab facilities in Colorado include:

  • Medical detox
  • Inpatient long-term rehab
  • Inpatient short-term treatment
  • Intensive outpatient
  • Partial hospitalization
  • Outpatient care
  • Aftercare

While many rehabilitation centers in Colorado only provide a few of these types of options, others offer all of them. We also provide a detailed aftercare plan while clients are in treatment. Our facility is among the best rehab centers in Colorado helping men and women break the chains of addiction, and stay in recovery for a lifetime.

Inpatient & Outpatient Drug Rehab in Colorado

Colorado drug rehab centers are designed to treat anyone struggling with substance addiction or abuse. Typically, there are two major options for treatment: inpatient care and outpatient care. The differences between the two lie primarily in the intensity of care and the length of time the client is required to stay at a facility for treatment. Most drug rehab centers in Colorado offer both options. We are able to offer resources to those searching for substance abuse treatment and rehab in cities across Colorado.

With inpatient drug rehab in Colorado, clients must live at the facility to complete treatment, which usually takes 30–90 days, or longer. These programs offer the highest level of care and include medically supervised detox along with around-the-clock support. Inpatient rehab is typically recommended for individuals who are addicted to a particular drug and are unable to stop using it on their own.

Clients transition to outpatient Colorado drug rehab after inpatient care. They are not required to live onsite during treatment, which, like inpatient care, can last 30–90 days. Outpatient programs are less intensive and give clients the option to live anywhere they choose, as long as it’s a place that offers a safe, supportive and drug-free environment.

Inpatient & Outpatient Drug Rehab in Colorado

For individuals struggling with alcoholism, Colorado alcohol rehab centers can give them the treatment they need to get sober. Some focus primarily on alcohol use disorders while others treat similar disorders as well. Just like with drug rehab, alcohol rehab centers in Colorado offer inpatient and outpatient programs. Inpatient care for alcoholism is more intensive than outpatient, while outpatient treatment offers more flexibility than residential programs.

Clients enrolled in one of the alcohol treatment centers in Colorado must live at the facility while completing treatment. These programs offer the highest level of care with medically supervised detox and around-the-clock support. They’re necessary for individuals who need constant supervision because they are unable to go a certain amount of time without alcohol.

With outpatient Colorado alcohol rehab centers, clients are not required to live at the facility during treatment. They have the option to stay in their own homes or any other resident that offers a safe, supportive environment that’s free of alcohol. Clients typically transition to this level of care after completing alcohol detox and inpatient care. Outpatient programs can last 30–90 days and are less intensive than inpatient care.
