Drug Rehabilitation Programs in Denver, CO (303) 209-3004
When someone is facing the unknowns of addiction they are often left in a state of bewilderment where their minds are filled with so many questions and too few answers. How did I get there? When did things change? Can I go cold turkey? Will it work? What will people think of me if I ask for help?
Most addicts can tell you the first day that they woke up and realized that they had a dependency and what it felt like, that total state of panic of knowing that without drugs they would get sick.
It is that fear that prevents most addicts from entering drug rehab. Having to withdraw from a drug seems to the addict to be the most frightening aspect of “getting clean”, and yet by the time they leave treatment most think that the toughest part was confronting the “whys” of their addiction and forcing themselves to examine what led them down that path.

Addiction is a Disease
Drug addiction has been categorized as a disease for many good reasons. It has symptoms that worsen as the disease progresses, and if left untreated it can lead to death. As with all chronic diseases direct intervention is necessary to save the life of the patient. In the case of those individuals with addictions to what is known as a “highly controlled” substance that intervention required is usually “medical” in nature. Drugs such as a benzodiazepine or opiate can cause severe physical distress when cessation occurs, causing a multitude of unpleasant side effects even death in rare cases.
Why You Should Seek Drug Rehab Treatment
It is important to the addict’s immediate health and well-being to seek treatment as soon as he or she can. Many prolong seeking help because they feel it would be too expensive or painful or, for those who have been good at hiding the condition, shameful.
The truth is that drug rehab is cheaper than the cost of doing most drugs daily, there are methods of financing and most insurances cover some form of treatment program, anyway. Withdrawal is a lot more painful and dangerous without the support of medical doctors. And, lastly, no one is that good at hiding addiction. People can tell when something is wrong and it worries them more when they don’t know what it is.
Our Denver Colorado drug rehab is a highly successful disease abatement program that helps addicts learn how to live a life of sobriety. The program involves a safe, medical detox
under the oversight of board certified doctors and licensed nurses all of whom have years of addiction treatment
behind them, individual and group therapy with licensed counselors and addiction specialists, as well as, recreational and nutrition programs designed to help the body heal from the stress that hard drugs and alcohol can put on it.
Drug Relapse Prevention
Detoxifying the body is much easier than cleansing the mind. The body forgets pain, the mind does not. The goal of all drug rehabs is to prepare individuals for that moment when they walk out the door. Relapse prevention
is a specific program philosophy where the individual learns to identify safe situations and dangerous situations, events that trigger cravings and things that will not trigger cravings, as well as, what to do should these things happen. Having the tools to better understand how a relapse occurs and be able to prevent it is vital to long-term sobriety.
