Englewood, Colorado, is one of many cities with a growing heroin problem. Officials say more new users snort the drug nasally rather than injecting or “shooting up” because they mistakenly believe it’s less addictive. When users avoid injecting by smoking or snorting heroin, they avoid the stigma associated with needle users. While illegal substances like heroin and methamphetamine continue to be an issue in Englewood, Colorado, legal substances such as alcohol, marijuana and prescription medicine continue to be a significant issue for those who suffer with substance use disorder as well.

Because drug and alcohol addiction is such a prevalent condition in Englewood, Colorado, many individuals are now seeking treatment for this disease. There is a stigma associated with addiction in this country. However, we understand that like any other disease, those who are afflicted with it deserve treatment.

If you or your loved one is struggling with drug and/or alcohol addiction in Englewood, Colorado, you can get help. Below is a guide that will explain and offer suggestions for substance misuse treatment.

Drug & Alcohol Rehab Centers in Englewood, Colorado

If you or someone you care about is struggling with addiction and want to find more information about the kinds of help available in Englewood, Colorado, keep reading. Many people considering treatment simply don’t know where to begin and have questions about cost and insurance coverage. The best program for you or someone in your family is going to depend on many factors not the least of which is how long you’ve been addicted and whether you have any other mental health or physical issues.

Residential Treatment Programs

In a residential treatment program, patients are monitored 24/7. Being in a controlled environment can be very beneficial for those who are suffering from drug and/or alcohol addiction. Usually, patients who are in a residential treatment program have already gone through the necessary detoxification. Once detox is complete, the real work can begin.

Partial Hospitalization Program

This option is also known as “dayhab.” Some of the same services are offered as with the residential treatment programs. However, you spend your nights at home.

Outpatient Treatment Programs

In an outpatient treatment program, patients are allowed to stay in housing on campus or within their homes if they live in a safe and supportive environment.

If you’ve never been in treatment in Englewood, Colorado, before, it makes sense to research your options. This includes national based recovery centers that may address multiple issues and provide a more experienced staff to treat substance abuse. The Recovery Village at Palmer Lake is a great option.

Detox Centers

A person addicted to narcotic pain pills or heroin can benefit from a medical detoxification center because of the physical nature of withdrawal from opiates. Medical detox from drug and alcohol addiction is always done under the supervision of a doctor and staff that is available 24 hours a day.

Detoxification is a necessary process because it rids the body of all drugs and alcohol. However, it is not the only necessary process. It is a first step that should be followed with a program of counseling and other forms of therapy. Once you get clean and sober, you can continue on the path of mental and spiritual recovery and national recovery centers can provide more resources than medical detox alone.

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) Meetings

Narcotics Anonymous uses a 12-step program in a group therapy setting, which is helpful to people looking for continued and long-term community support. As with AA meetings, NA meetings are designed for addicts in recovery to help and support each other. The environment is not managed by a team of specialists, and the group believes in the ability of one addict to help another through shared experiences. Once you or a drug addict you love completes detox, inpatient treatment and/or outpatient treatment for drug addiction, NA meetings are a great way to avoid relapse.

SMART Recovery Meetings

The SMART Recovery approach differs from traditional 12-step support groups like AA and NA because this program considers addiction to be a dysfunctional habit rather than as a disease. It is also based on science and intended to change as understanding of science changes. Based on cognitive behavioral therapy or motivational enhancement, SMART helps those in recovery find their own path.
