Colorado Sober Living Homes
Prior to 2017, Colorado seemed to have its addiction problem under control. Deaths from opioids were below the national average and there were few other substances to cause concern. However, there was a notable shift in Colorado’s fortunes from 2017 onwards and The Centennial State has experienced a number of issues since.
Meth Rehab in Colorado
According to figures provided by the Denver Office of the Medical Examiner, methamphetamine is one of the leading causes of drug-related deaths in Denver. They looked at toxicology reports from all drug-related deaths, including those that were not a direct result of the drug itself (such as accidents that occurred because the user was under the influence). They found that methamphetamine was present in most of them, followed by amphetamine and alcohol.
Meth has been the drug of choice for many Colorado users since the 1990s, and it continues to be pervasive in all walks of life, with many predicting that it will continue to remain an issue even when other drug epidemics have become a thing of the past.
Denver is a major transportation hub, and for many methamphetamine manufacturers south of the US-Mexico border it’s the ultimate goal. The government may have put a stop to homegrown meth, but in doing so they unleashed cheaper made-in-Mexico meth on the population, and it’s this that is spreading through every major town, city and suburb.
Many Mexican cartels see the city of Denver as a goldmine and have established a host of routes to get drugs into the city, from where they travel across Colorado and into neighboring states. This is why the state has such a big issue and why it’s not going to go away any time soon. It’s also why we established our Denver sober living facility to provide direct care to people in this city.
It’s not just Denver that has this issue, however. Meth is no longer confined to the big towns and cities and it can be found in even the most rural parts of the state. In fact, it has become more common in rural areas than it has ever been, which has led to the breakdown of countless communities across the state.
Our Colorado sober living facility was established to fight this growing epidemic and to help those in need, chipping away at the issue and aiming to eradicate it piece by piece. Our facilities are equipped to deal with meth addicts from all walks of life, regardless of how extensive their addiction is. If you are suffering from a methamphetamine or amphetamine addiction, you can get the help you need in our Colorado sober living homes.
Opioid Rehab in Colorado
Across the entire state of Colorado, there were close to 1,000 deaths, and most of the ones that didn’t stem from methamphetamine use were the result was opioids. These drugs are considered deadlier than methamphetamine as the overdose risk is greater. There are also many of them. If you look at the aforementioned toxicology report and group all opioids into one (including morphine, heroin, codeine, oxycodone, oxymorphone, methadone and fentanyl) they are more present than meth and kill more people.
Opioids are often grouped into one because they present similar symptoms and they present many of the same challenges for rehab clinics and detox specialists. Our experts are trained in the issues that opioid addiction presents and they understand the need for a safe, drug-free environment where regular therapy and support is always available.
Whether you have a short-term addiction to mild opiates like codeine, or a long-term addiction to stronger opioids like fentanyl and oxycodone, you can get the help you need in our Colorado sober living facilities.
