Substance abuse negatively affects citizens across Colorado. Westminster, Colorado is no exception. According to a report from the Colorado Health Institute, death rates from overdoses are higher in Colorado than the national average. In 2014, approximately 16.3 per 100,000 people overdosed in Colorado compared to the national rate of 14.7 per 100,000 people.

Due to the legalization of marijuana, teens in Colorado have more access to drugs and alcohol than in many other areas of the country. Concern for this demographic has led to programs like Rise Above Colorado, a proactive subsidiary of The Colorado Meth Projects, whose vision is “to empower teens to lead a life free of drug abuse.”

In addition, numerous treatment services and organizations are set up throughout the state to combat each area of addiction. Through educational programs, community outreach, inpatient and outpatient centers, groups, meetings, and counseling services—there is a help for each need. Specifics about the types and locations of treatment services are outlined below.

Drug & Alcohol Rehab Centers in Westminster, Colorado

These facilities offer various treatment options including outpatient counseling, inpatient partial hospitalization/work programs, residential long-term inpatient care and holistic rehabilitation.

Residential Treatment Programs

Residential treatment programs offer a safe haven away from all the triggers of daily life. With 24/7 staff and medical support, residential treatments will begin with detox when needed and move into group and individual therapy and skills training sessions. This is the most intense method of treatment.

Partial Hospitalization Program

The partial hospitalization programs scale down from the residential programs and, instead, provide patients with part-time, ongoing therapy for the length of the program. During this time, the patient lives at home and commutes to the hospital or treatment facility for approximately 20 to 25 hours a week. Patients will participate in group and/or individual therapy sessions dependent upon their clinical diagnosis.

Outpatient Treatment Programs

With outpatient treatment programs, patients live at home and attend meetings on a regular basis to help them in the continued recovery of their addiction. These programs offer guidance, support and education to help patients make healthy lifestyle choices.

Holistic Programs

Holistic programs differ from traditional approaches by focusing on the individual as a whole. These programs tend to skip 12-step programs, psychotherapy and support groups and, instead, focus on the mind-body-spirit connection

Whether choosing a treatment center in town and more convenient to your home or a national treatment center in another city where anonymity is coveted, make sure to ask questions to ensure the center fits your needs. Such questions might focus on the percentage of patients who graduate from the program, the percentage of patients who return to the program and the relapse rate of graduates.

Detox Centers

Detoxing from drugs or alcohol is an essential part of recovery. The detoxing process can be difficult as well as dangerous if not properly supervised. If you or someone you know is attempting to end an alcohol or drug dependence, make sure to seek proper medical care. Also, for a successful recovery, seek out a facility that looks beyond detox to a full treatment.

Westminster has several detox facilities. If these feel too close to home and you are looking for a more neutral treatment center away from daily distractions and triggers, there are a variety of national treatment centers across the country that host acclaimed experts in their field.

Al-Anon and Nar-Anon Meetings

Al-Anon and Nar-Anon are programs for the friends, family members and loved ones who have been affected by alcohol and/or drug abuse by a relative or friend.
