Colorado Long Term Drug Rehab Centers

 

Long Term rehab Sign

There is nothing more devastating for a substance abuser and his family than going to treatment and then relapsing. One of the main reasons that someone relapses is that he did not go to a long term drug rehab center. What is long term drug treatment? If you search for long term drug treatment centers in the Facility Locator of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, treatment program more than 30 days is considered a long term drug treatment center. Yet, research done by the National Insitute on Drug Abuse shows that less than 90 days treatment for someone severely afflicted with substance abuse is not successful. On this web-site, we consider long term drug and alcohol treatment to be 90 days or more.

Colorado long-term drug rehab centers helpline has been supervised and calls answered by a leader in the alcohol and drug rehab and prevention field for over 35 years. He is now semi-retired, but still is responsible for the oversight of this site and for answering your calls or your written request using the form above. Long-term drug rehab centers.com is a part of a non-profit organization that is dedicated to helping those that are addicted to alcohol and other drugs, find effective treatment. In our many years of experience, we have learned that most thirty-day treatment programs are a start at recovery, but they are not effective in graduating participants who can rebuild their lives after extended drug use. Colorado is a state that is on the cutting edge of America's changing drug policies, being one of the two states, along with Washington, that has legalized the sale and use of marijuana. Our future may decide on how well this experiment works and whether it increases the use of drugs in Colorado, or does it provide funding and insight into how to support effective long-term drug and alcohol treatment.

On the rehab side of this ongoing argument, we know that the use of marijuana in Colorado has increased the addiction potential of its citizens and the statistics show that to be the case as well. Since 1996, when Colorado first allowed for the legal sales of marijuana for medicinal purposes, the total use of marijuana was much lower than it is today.

The Rocky Mountain High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas report in August, 2012, suggest that Colorado is a significant region where drug dealers divert medical marijuana from patients and sell it illegally. A Broomfield, Colorado, bust from June, 2012, was among more than seventy state-wide bust of illegal diversion listed in the report. the voters of Broomfield approved a ban on medical marijuana-related businesses in 2010, but the proximity to other areas, like Boulder, make the diversion easy for those who are breaking the law.

Addiction isn't an incurable disease. We have programs that even guarantee their results and they couldn't afford to do that if they didn't "cure" the problem.

According to the National Household Survey on Drug Abuse for 1999 and 2000, Colorado ranks highest in terms of drug use indicators as compared to other western states. This survey identified that the average yearly rates of first use of marijuana for public 12 to 17 years of age and the percent of those reporting that they used an illicit drug in the previous month, ages 12 and older were categories where Colorado ranked highest. There were other points of interest, but leave it said that Colorado has a higher than average drug problem.

Colorado is also the only state that is consistently ranked in the highest percent ranking of 21 of 23 categories that describe the severity of substance abuse, addiction, drug dependency and other markers as ranked by states. Citizens of Colorado should be aware that the beauty of their state is being hampered by the prevalent drug problem and just as it is important to keep Colorado Beautiful, it is also important to keep Colorado Drug Free.. these actually go hand-in-hand.

Colorado has many who come to the state for the cool mountains in the summer and skiing in the winter. There are many drug pushers that pray on those with disposable cash in terms of illicit drug sales and the consumption of alcohol. As wonderful as Colorado is, it isn't abstinence friendly. It's medical marijuana laws are a prime example.

Long Term Alcohol and Drug Treatment Centers in Colorado

The following information on long term drug and alcohol treatment centers is based on information provided by an agency called Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. Long term here means 30 days or more. We recommend 3 or more months or more. You can call these agencies directly or call us and get help with finding the right program.

There were 31,095 drug rehab and addiction treatment center admissions in 2003 in Colorado, however, due to the high relapse rate of many of the Colorado drug rehab/addiction treatment centers, most families are searching for something that works.

(Some people have asked the difference between "drug rehab" and "addiction treatment". Actually, these terms are interchangeable. Attention should be focused on the real difference in what types of drug rehab or addiction treatment are being provided and whether it is outpatient treatment, short-term residential treatment or long-term residential treatment, intensive outpatient, boot-camp rehab program, therapeutic communities, Christian based rehab, etc, and what is available in Colorado.)

Every state has a "Single State Agency" whose responsibility is to oversee the licensing, funding and supervision of its alcohol and drug rehab programs. These agencies are usually under the supervision of the Health Departments and may include mental health services as well.

For those persons that need state funded programs, you need to be aware that the budgets for the Single State Agencies usually doesn't allow for the funding of longterm drug rehab, but our counselors will find state funded programs if they are available and if you qualify under they income standards.

We also have long term drug rehab and alcohol treatment programs that have outcomes that are approximately 8 times higher than state-funded programs and some of our programs have scholarships, so it is best that you contact us to find the best possible longterm program for your individual needs.

If you need a state-funded rehab program in Colorado, you can call Aldohol and Drug Abuse Division (ADAD) at 303.866.7400 and they will connect you with someone that knows avaiability of state funded programs, however, this resource does not list individual geographical areas or programs, so, again, it is best that you contact our office for help. If you don't have medical insurance or other private means to pay for a program, they can help you. You will be required to prove your indigence to qualify for a state-funded rehab and be prepared to be put on a waiting list since there is more demand than there are beds available.

Methamphetamine is a major problem in Colorado and the NDIC has compiled this excellent data on the subject:

"Methamphetamine is a primary drug threat to Colorado, and it is readily available in most population centers in the state. Most methamphetamine available in Colorado is produced by Mexican DTOs and criminal groups in Mexico, California, and Arizona. Mexican DTOs and, to a lesser extent, Mexican criminal groups transport wholesale quantities of methamphetamine into Colorado from Mexico via southwestern states or from production sites in California and Arizona. Caucasian criminal groups and local independent dealers also produce significant quantities of methamphetamine throughout the state. The rising number of methamphetamine laboratories in the state poses a significant threat to public safety. Mexican DTOs and criminal groups dominate the wholesale distribution of methamphetamine produced in Mexico, California, and Arizona. Caucasian criminal groups also distribute methamphetamine at the wholesale level; typically they are supplied by laboratory operators in Colorado and neighboring states. Outlaw motorcycle gangs (OMGs, this accronym may not be used any longer with the use of texting this has becomoe Oh, My God, which would fit nicely here as well.) also produce and distribute methamphetamine in the state. At the retail level Caucasian and Mexican local independent dealers are the most common distributors of the drug, but Hispanic and African American street gangs also distribute methamphetamine."

Methamphetamine Abuse

Methamphetamine abuse is increasingly prevalent in Colorado. The number of methamphetamine-related treatment admissions to publicly funded facilities in the state increased from 1,748 in 1997 to 2,037 in 2001, according to data from ADAD. (See Table 1 in Overview section.) Since 1999 treatment admissions for methamphetamine abuse have increased each year, while admissions for cocaine, heroin, and marijuana have declined. According to ADAD, more than 83 percent of patients treated for methamphetamine abuse in 2001 were Caucasian, 54 percent were male, and nearly 33 percent were 35 or older. Nearly 43 percent of methamphetamine abusers treated during 2001 smoked the drug, 32 percent injected it, 19 percent snorted it, and 6 percent used some other method or multiple methods of administration.

Methamphetamine-related poison control calls also have increased in Colorado. The Rocky Mountain Poison and Drug Center (RMPDC) reports an increase in the number of calls related to the category "street-drug amphetamine," from 38 in 1997 to 581 in 2001. The significance of this increase in the volume of calls is unknown but may be related to increased public awareness of the dangers and warning signs of methamphetamine abuse and production.

In the Denver metropolitan area, trends in methamphetamine-related hospital emergency department (ED) mentions and deaths are mixed. According to the Drug Abuse Warning Network (DAWN), in the Denver metropolitan area the number of methamphetamine ED mentions decreased, from 292 in 1997 to 98 in 2001. However, mortality data from DAWN indicate that methamphetamine-related deaths increased, from 3 in 1996 to 19 in 2001.

Law enforcement agencies in Colorado also report that methamphetamine abuse is common. According to the National Drug Intelligence Center (NDIC) 2002 National Drug Threat Survey (NDTS), 53 of the 71 law enforcement officials surveyed in Colorado who reported on methamphetamine abuse in their jurisdictions indicated that abuse was at a high level, 8 indicated that abuse was moderate, and 10 reported low or no abuse of the drug.

Methamphetamine is most commonly abused in homes and other private locations in Colorado. Methamphetamine also is abused in public venues such as bars, nightclubs, and all-night rave parties. The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) reports that methamphetamine is increasingly used in public venues by long-term club drug abusers seeking to intensify their high.

Pot-in-schools debate returns to Colorado

DENVER (AP) — A new Colorado law allowing medical marijuana use at public schools is getting a second look Monday in a House committee.
The current law allows students who need medical marijuana to use edible pot at public schools — as long as the school districts agree.
No school districts currently does, so patient advocates are pushing the bill to make Colorado the second state to require schools to allow nurses or parents to administer medical pot. New Jersey made the change last year.
"They need to make reasonable accommodations so that children who need medical marijuana can go to school," said Stacey Linn, a Lakewood mother of a 15-year-old with cerebral palsy who is not allowed to wear a skin patch delivering a cannabis-derived treatment to school.

Medical marijuana has been legal in some states for two decades. But school districts and lawmakers nationwide are only now starting to grapple with thorny issues about student use of a drug still illegal under federal law. Colorado is one of three states where medical marijuana is legal that has any rules for use in schools, according to the pro-legalization Marijuana Policy Project.
