Durango Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Substance misuse in the state of Colorado, just as in nearly every area of the country, has increased to epidemic levels. The most commonly abused drugs in Colorado are cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamine, opioids, heroin and alcohol. Each one of these drugs has left both patients and their families devastated. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has stated that even after the recent legalization of marijuana for recreational use, the incidents involving other drugs have not abated.

Over the past decades, the number of deaths that have resulted from both drug and alcohol overdose has increased across the state of Colorado. The city of Durango has also seen a marked increase as well. Whether this increase can be attributed to legal substances such as alcohol, marijuana or prescription medications or through the use of illicit drugs such as heroin, methamphetamine or cocaine, experts do not agree. What is agreed upon, however, is that something must be done to help those who are facing substance use disorder.

Durango, Colorado patients and their families can find help to address their substance abuse. The good news is that there is hope and there are a number of resources and agencies that are available to help patients and their families. These resources and agencies exist to help those who are addicted to drugs, alcohol or both. Each one listed here is committed to giving aid to patients and their loved ones that is both compassionate and respectful.

Drug & Alcohol Rehab Centers in Durango, Colorado

Once you have decided to seek help for your drug and/or alcohol addiction, the next step is to find a treatment facility in Durango. Which facility you choose depends on what addictions you are seeking treatment for. Not all facilities address the same types of substance misuse and recovery. Fortunately, there are a number of treatment programs available to patients and their families in and around Durango so that you can find the one that is right for you.

Residential Treatment Programs – In a residential treatment program, patients are usually monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. These facilities have a high success rate for those who are seeking addiction treatment. Most residential treatment programs will offer stays from 30, 60, 90 or more days. Many are state-sponsored, while others are privately funded. Residential treatment programs usually come after complete detoxification from drugs and/or alcohol.

Partial Hospitalization Programs – Detoxification is the most stressful and physically dangerous time during addiction recovery. Patients that experience acute psychiatric symptoms during the detox process often go into a partial hospitalization program (PHPs). A PHP offers patients who do not require monitoring 24/7 access to medical staff. Normally when in a PHP program, the patient will have already undergone the detoxification process. A PHP offers access to trained medical personnel who can assist in preventing a relapse from occurring. Some PHP programs allow patients to stay in their own home in the evening and go to the facility during the day while others require patients to stay on-site for the period of their treatment.

Outpatient Treatment Programs – Outpatient programs offer a choice for patients so that they may either stay on the site of the treatment facility or in their own homes. If a patient chooses to stay in their own home for outpatient treatment, they must have a positive support system as well as a safe living environment. The more positive the environment, the greater the chance for success with sobriety.

The key to determining which will work best for you is to be honest with yourself about what your needs are. It may very well be that one or more treatment options will need to be undertaken to recover completely.
