Information About Rehab in Colorado

Drug and Alcohol Addiction in Colorado

There are many troubling statistics regarding drug and alcohol misuse and addiction in statistics. For example, among young people, 62% of teens report having abused alcohol, and 50% say they’ve misused a drug at least once. In 2021, it was reported that more than one in every ten Colorado residents had a substance use disorder, according to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health. Only a few states had a higher rate than Colorado.

Residents of Colorado have among the most tolerant views about cocaine use. Among residents 12 and older, just 60% perceive a significant risk associated with cocaine use once a month, which is the sixth-lowest rate nationwide. There were 1,289 overdose deaths in Colorado in 2021 related to opioids. Opioid overdose deaths made up 68% of the total drug overdose fatalities in the state.

Addiction Treatment in Colorado

For most people, the appropriate addiction treatment is a continuum of care. You participate in different levels of treatment, typically at decreasing intensity levels, but you work through these at your own pace. This allows for a personalized treatment approach, and a continuum-of-care model tends to yield the best long-term recovery outcomes.

Treatment programs that might be part of a continuum of care include:

  • Medical detox, during which a clinical team of medical professionals helps you overcome withdrawal symptoms. The medical staff ensures you’re safe and comfortable, but detox alone isn’t an addiction treatment. It’s instead considered a needed first step.
  • Inpatient rehab is the next step for most people. In inpatient or residential programs, you live on-site, and you work with professionals to learn how to live your life free from substances. It’s a highly focused and structured environment beneficial during early recovery.
  • Partial hospitalization programs, or PHP, integrate some independence and autonomy into treatment. It’s still structured, but you return home at night.
  • Intensive outpatient programs provide complete supportive services to help you prepare for life outside the center. An IOP can include group and individual therapy, family programs, support groups, and recreational therapy.
  • Outpatient treatment is non-residential, but you continue working with counselors on relapse prevention strategies.

Other programs that may be needed include dual diagnosis treatment for co-occurring mental health disorders, family programs, and aftercare programs.

These programs are available at The Recovery Village Palmer Lake, many of which are built on a foundation of behavioral therapies and trauma-informed care.

How Much Does Rehab Cost?

The rehab costs vary greatly, depending on whether inpatient or outpatient, how long you’ll be in treatment, the type of care you’ll receive, and the center itself. However, most insurance companies must cover some or all of the costs of rehab and mental health services. If you don’t have private insurance, there are still accessible treatment options, including state-funded rehab and nonprofit programs.

If you aren’t sure what your insurance covers regarding rehab and addiction treatment services, our Recovery Advocates can help verify your coverage. We can help you understand any out-of-pocket responsibilities, too.
