Every day, more and more citizens of Arvada, Colorado struggle with substance abuse. 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.
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.
This treatment option is usually offered at a facility where patients can be monitored 24 hours a day, 7 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.
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.
By definition, outpatient programs allow a patient to come to the facility for treatment and go to their home at night. 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.
When you can choose from many treatment centers, it’s hard to pick the one that will best meet your specific needs. The best way to start seeking treatment for your drug or alcohol addiction is to first look for a nationally treatment facility.
The advantages of using a national network of substance misuse centers can vary greatly. The most important factor in choosing a facility is finding one that allows you to focus on your recovery. If the facility or center has a website, it will likely list what programs and treatment options are available. This can help you determine what will work best for your needs and current situation. Substance and alcohol misuse professionals have the training, knowledge and experience to help you reach your goal of overcoming addiction and putting your life back on track. The Recovery Village at Palmer Lake can help 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 those who are in long-term recovery. See below for more information on programs and meetings near you.
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. Here are a few meetings in the Arvada area.*

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 drug-free and sober by giving them the support that they need. Here are a few meetings near you.*

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. Here are options for SMART Recovery meetings near you.*
