Opioid Addiction Treatment Center in Colorado

Around 10.8 million Americans misused opioids in 2019. Misuse can easily lead to addiction, but treating an opioid addiction is rarely as easy as simply quitting opioids. Effective treatment requires a multi-pronged approach that addresses the reasons behind a person’s substance use, treats their mental health and teaches them ways to avoid future use.

The Recovery Village at Palmer Lake makes lifelong sobriety possible by providing dual diagnosis care, family therapy, life skills counseling, case management and relapse prevention plans in addition to intensive addiction treatment.

Evidence-Based Treatment for Opioid Addiction at The Recovery Village at Palmer Lake

Research shows that effective addiction treatment involves medical detox, behavioral therapies, co-occurring disorder treatment and long-term aftercare.

At The Recovery Village at Palmer Lake, treatment is individualized to meet each client’s needs in recovery. Treatment may include a variety of therapies, medications and holistic approaches that provide the tools needed for lasting healing.

What To Look For in a Treatment Facility

The most effective rehab centers are able to provide certain services, including:

  • 24-hour support from a clinical team
  • Evidence-based care

How To Know When It’s Time To Seek Treatment

Opioids change the way your brain functions, making it incredibly hard to “just quit.” For this reason, it’s important to find professional help when you’re struggling with an opioid addiction. Even wondering whether you need treatment may be a sign that it’s time to reach out for assistance. In general, if you continue using opioids despite negative consequences in your life, you will likely benefit from a rehab program.

Many people successfully recover after seeking treatment, but it can depend on how willing a person is to attend rehab, how long they stay and how much post-rehab support they have. Regardless, attending treatment gives you the best odds of breaking free from addiction’s hold over your life.

If you’re someone in Colorado who’s struggling with opioid addiction, you may think that professional treatment is out of your reach. Fortunately, insurance will often cover some or all of the costs of opioid addiction rehab. You can use our helpful insurance verification tool to see whether your provider offers coverage.
