Aurora, Colorado Alcohol Rehab Centers and Drug Centers

Aurora is dealing with substance abuse issues with illegal drugs — particularly heroin — as well as legal ones like prescription opioids and stimulants.

If you’re considering attending a drug rehab center in Aurora, CO, it’s important to understand the differences between the types of care available at rehabilitation and treatment programs.

    Residential Treatment Programs

    Residential treatment programs typically involve full hospitalization or residency at the treatment facility. As members of a residential treatment program, patients have complete access to medical professionals who can guide them through the treatment process. Treatment follows a tight schedule that helps patients to break their addictions and learn new skills for reengaging in their everyday lives after the program’s end. Consider attending an inpatient drug rehab in Aurora, CO or attending a program elsewhere, like at The Recovery Village’s Palmer Lake location.

    Partial Hospitalization Programs

    Partial hospitalization programs offer many of the services of a residential treatment program but allow patients to live at home while they go through their treatment. Patients should have a stable and supportive home environment to return to in order to facilitate healthy recovery and a better chance at full reversal of behavior.

  • Connector.

    Outpatient Treatment Programs

    Similar to partial hospitalization programs, outpatient programs allow patients to live at home, provided that their homes are safe places that don’t encourage continued drug use. Outpatient programs are particularly suited to patients who have mild substance use disorders and to patients who have successfully complete an inpatient treatment program.

As you consider which treatment program is best for yourself or for a loved one, take a survey of the situation and think about what treatment level is appropriate. Things to consider include: what substance(s) are you misusing? How long has the issue been going on? Are there external factors that contribute to the severity of the addiction?

Additionally, you’ll need to consider your health insurance coverage and what kinds of treatments fall into your policy’s coverage limits. Many patients opt for national rehabilitation facilities like The Recovery Village. These facilities are staffed with experts and medical professionals who can help you develop a game plan for the best course of action when it comes to your treatment plan. The nearest Recovery Village location is in Palmer Lake. You can opt to attend the residential programs at The Recovery Village, and return home for outpatient drug rehab in Aurora, CO. A change of pace is often beneficial when starting the recovery journey.

Detox Centers

Detox is an essential step to recovery from drug addiction. Often, before you proceed with a residential or partial hospitalization rehabilitation program, you need to detox first. Detox is the process through which you rid your body of the drugs or alcohol that you’ve been using over the past months or even years.

Detox through a recovery facility is also an option, and it can take a lot of pressure off of the detoxing individual and their family members. At a recovery facility, patients have the option to begin their recovery program while they complete their detox so that they’re able to get on track from day one. Additionally, recovery facilities often employ experts who can assist in the challenging days of withdrawal and give patients help with coping through detox symptoms and stages. Take an important step today and reach out to an Aurora drug detox center today.

Recovery Meetings Near You

When you complete a rehabilitation program or are discharged from a recovery facility, there may be some missing pieces in your life back home. Your future is bright, but your community needs have more than likely changed. That’s where recovery groups come in. Recovery groups, like Alcoholics Anonymous, offer community support from people who have been where you are and are going through many of the same experiences. For anyone who has attended drug rehab in Aurora, Colorado, joining a recovery group may significantly reduce your likelihood of relapse.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Meetings

If you’ve attended an Aurora alcohol rehab, you can benefit greatly from learning about Alcoholics Anonymous. AA is the original recovery group in the United States, and now it’s in every state and many countries around the world. AA walks members through a patented 12-step program that teaches surrender at every stage and increasingly builds upon itself. While AA encourages members to surrender to a higher power, it’s not a religious organization and doesn’t require members to adhere to any creed. The only requirement for joining AA is a desire to maintain sobriety.

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) Meetings

Similar to AA, Narcotics Anonymous leads members through a 12-step program that has members turn their addiction over to a higher power. Again, the program doesn’t require religious belief or conviction of any sort, nor is it affiliated with any denomination. NA members go a step further in their community commitments by pairing with sponsors – that is, qualified members who have had a certain level of success within the program. Additionally, NA members are encouraged to engage in volunteer activities that benefit the community at large. The community has access to NA meetings at a few locations. Many people who complete an Aurora drug rehab program find that NA provides additional support and accountability that helps them avoid relapse.

SMART Recovery Meetings

SMART Recovery is marked by its slogan “Discover the power of choice” and is built on the premise that people working through addiction recovery don’t necessarily want to feel pressured to turn to a higher power. The SMART recovery program has four points, rather than 12 steps, and encourages members to look within themselves to unlock the keys to healing. It’s open to people struggling with addictions of any kind.

Al-Anon and Nar-Anon Meetings

When you have a loved one going through recovery and breaking free from addiction, it can be hard to find a community that understands the things you’re going through. That’s where Al-Anon and Nar-Anon come in. Like their closely named counterparts – Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous – Al-Anon and Nar-Anon follow a 12-step guide that leads families and friends of patients in recovery through the identical steps that their loved ones are going through. Of course, the focus is slightly different and tailored to the needs of family members working alongside a loved one suffering from the effects of addiction.
