Arvada Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

The National Substance Abuse Index lists Arvada as one of the top 10 cities in Colorado facing widespread incidences of substance misuse. Drugs like opioids, cocaine, marijuana, alcohol, methamphetamine and heroin are taking a huge toll on Colorado families. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) indicates that this state has one of the highest incidences of death by drug overdose and fatal alcohol-related injuries in the United States.

Legal drugs such as alcohol, prescription opioids and marijuana can be just as destructive to Arvada, Colorado families as illegal drugs like methamphetamine, cocaine and heroin. To combat the issues surrounding addiction, Colorado boasts one of the best support systems and the highest number of available resources in the United States for those attempting to overcome substance use disorder.

In Arvada, these resources assist those who are addicted to either drugs or alcohol, or who may be facing multiple addictions. For patients who truly want to get a handle on and beat their addictions, there is a way out. Addiction is considered a chronic illness, no less so than any other type of physical sickness. All illnesses deserve to be treated with compassion and dignity, respecting the patient and their loved ones.

Drug & Alcohol Rehab Centers in Arvada, Colorado

The first step toward getting help for your addiction to alcohol, drugs or both is to find a treatment facility in your area. No two people face the exact same type of addiction or life situation, so each person should be treated as an individual. The type and nature of each addiction will largely determine how treatment is assessed in Arvada, Colorado.

Residential Treatment Programs – This treatment option is usually offered at a facility where patients can be monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Residential programs see a high degree of success with those who want to get a handle on their drug or alcohol addiction and begin the process of breaking free from them. Many of these programs are state-sponsored and offer stays from 30, 60, 90 or more days. Residential care facilities are used at a point of recovery that occurs after someone has gone through the necessary time that is needed to fully eliminate the drugs or alcohol from their system.

Partial Hospitalization Programs – After detoxification, a patient may experience symptoms or behavioral issues that need to be addressed to reduce the potential of a relapse occurring. Partial hospitalization programs offer structured flexibility for those looking to transition back to their normal living conditions while still undergoing treatment. Depending on the needs of the patient and their families, there are some PHP programs that allow a patient to stay in their own home and go to the facility during the daytime. This is similar to what is offered in Outpatient Treatment Programs. Weekend and evening hours may also be available to those being treated at these types of facilities.

Outpatient Treatment Programs – By definition, outpatient programs allow a patient to come to the facility and either stay on site or come and go from their home. This option is available for those who have a supportive living environment that can assist them in their quest to stay sober.

Consider which type of treatment center will best address your needs in overcoming your substance misuse. You may need to use one, two, or even all three treatment options to overcome your addiction to drugs and/or alcohol. Only you and those closest to you will be able to determine which kind of help is needed.

Recovery Meetings Near You

The work is not over once you have sought treatment at a rehabilitation facility. It’s essential that you get into a continuous recovery program that works for you. Luckily, there are many meetings in the Arvada, Colorado area for alcoholics and drug addicts in long-term recovery. See below for more information on programs and meetings near you.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Meetings

Alcoholics Anonymous has been around for decades and has well-deserved name recognition because of the positive changes it has made in the lives of millions of people. Once someone has gone through detox and gotten treatment at an outpatient facility for alcohol addiction, attending local AA meetings often becomes an integral part of aftercare.

It can be extremely helpful and reassuring to know that, in spite of the stigma that society places on those who have an alcohol addiction, there are others out there who have been through it. It can be extremely beneficial to know and speak with others who have also overcome similar challenges in their lives. It speaks volumes on the success of AA that many of its members who have been successful in the program end up giving back through helping others overcome alcohol addictions.

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) Meetings

In a similar way that AA helps those with alcohol addiction, Narcotics Anonymous assists those struggling with narcotics. Once a patient has gone through detoxification and treatment at a medical facility, Narcotics Anonymous offers a 12-step program for continuous care and encouragement. These 12 steps are an integral part of NA meetings around the country. Regular attendance at NA meetings can assist patients in staying clean and sober by giving them the support that they need.

    SMART Recovery Meetings

    SMART Recovery meetings are open to the public and free of charge. Donations are accepted. SMART recovery is similar to Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous in helping those addicted to drugs or alcohol recover from their addictions. However, unlike AA and NA, which both use a 12-step program, SMART recovery makes use of a 4-point system.

    Both systems have their benefits and can be instrumental in helping patients overcome their addictions. SMART Recovery centers its programs on behavioral non-confrontational methods. The organization places emphasis on scientific methods that evolve as scientific knowledge evolves. Substance use disorder is approached as a habit that can be overcome by new habits.

      Methadone Clinics

      Those who are addicted to opioids like heroin may find an effective path for treatment in opiate replacement therapy. This type of therapy is a medication-assisted treatment (MAT). MATs can be very safe and effective when administered by a trained medical professional. One of the medications recommended is methadone.

      Methadone has long been considered to be one of the most effective and safe methods of helping those addicted to opioids recover from their addiction. Methadone can help patients address issues of chronic pain by changing how pain receptors in the brain react and yet it is not a sedative. It is further recommended that patients undergoing methadone treatment for opioid addiction also receive counseling and attend support meetings.

      Suboxone (Buprenorphine) Doctors

      Buprenorphine, which is more commonly known by its brand name, Suboxone, is another medication that is used to treat opioid addiction. Suboxone acts in a similar fashion as methadone in that it changes how the brain reacts to pain. Unlike opioid treatments involving methadone, Suboxone treatment therapies are not required to be administered by a recognized care facility. However, Suboxone must be given to patients by a doctor who is specifically qualified and licensed to administer the drug.

      Suboxone can be vastly beneficial to patients when taken as directed and can significantly reduce narcotic cravings for opioids by blocking the effects of drugs like heroin and prescription opiates. Here is a listing of physicians in the Arvada, Colorado area who are licensed to prescribe Suboxone (Buprenorphine).

      Vivitrol (Naltrexone) Doctors

      Vivitrol is the brand name of the drug naltrexone. Like Suboxone and methadone, Vivitrol is used to treat opioid addiction by blocking the effects opioids have on the brain. It does this by blocking the dopamine reward reaction these drugs create. Like Suboxone and methadone, Vivitrol is best used along with a substance misuse recovery program to ensure its efficacy. Patients who are taking Vivitrol in addition to participating in Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous or ongoing supervised counseling often have the best results.

      Vivitrol is a non-addictive medication that is administered by mouth and taken once a month.
      It is important that patients who are taking Vivitrol be completely free of opioids. It is not recommended that Vivitrol be taken any sooner than 7–14 days after achieving opioid abstinence in order to prevent symptoms of sudden opioid withdrawal and possible liver damage. Patients who are taking Vivitrol do not need to receive treatment from a special clinic. It must be dispensed by a physician who has been trained in the administration and prescription of Vivitrol. Listed below are facilities within 50 miles of Arvada, Colorado where patients can receive treatment for their alcohol or opioid addictions with Vivitrol.
