Thin Dotted line for Colorado Drug Rehab

In the first round of the CSAT Substance Abuse Prevention demonstration grants, the San Luis Valley, through the San Luis Valley Board of Cooperative Educational Services. It was their findings that the public in this rural area was more apathetic than was seen in the larger metropolitan areas.

The number one substance abuse problem is and has been alcohol in Alamosa. However, Alamosa is also a hub for Northern New Mexico and Southern Colorado for the transportation and distribution of heroin. Many of the families that settled in Southern Colorado and Northern New Mexico brought with them traditions that included alcohol as part of their celebrations, but as these communities became fragmented, many have turned to alcohol as a drug-of-choice to "help handle the stresses of modern life".

Drug treatment and alcohol rehabilitation are scarce in the Alamosa and San Luis Valley area. Drug rehabilitation facilities are limited to the Crossroads program that depends on block grant money from the state/federal governments to help provide their services. In lieu of residential treatment centers, outpatient couseling attempts to meet the needs within the San Luis Valley, but certainly falls short. There are no Long-term treatment beds available in the area.

If you need drug rehabilitatio or alcohol rehab, call our counselors and we will help you find treatment facilities that will fit your needs.

We recently received a call from a mother who lost her husband in the war and her teenage boy was medicating his grief with marijuana and stronger drugs. Her pension didn't give her the availability to pay for a private rehab center, and her son needed longterm residential treatment. We found an excellent programs where one of the clients had blown the program and the parents donated the remaining fees to help someone else that was more motivated. This isn' a usual case, but it makes the point that our counselors work hard to place you in the best rehab programs available.

It was the objective of the Prevention Grant that groups within Alamosa would be motivated to start new drug and alcohol treatment centers in and around Alamosa, but it appears as though nothing new has been develped since that program was instituted in 1992.

Alamosa News... again Medical Marijuana is the only topic in Colorado these days:

Froim the Valley Courier, June 30, 2010: Voters will decide the fate of medical marijuana dispensaries in the unincorporated areas of Alamosa County.

Alamosa County Commissioners on Wednesday unanimously adopted a resolution to put the question of whether to prohibit marijuana dispensaries on the November 2, 2010 ballot.

The medical marijuana ballot question will be: "Pursuant to the authority granted by C.R.S. Section 12-43.3-106, shall medical marijuana centers, optional premises cultivation operations and medical marijuana-infused products manufacturers' licenses, as those terms are defined in C.R.S. Section 12-43.3-104, be prohibited within the unincorporated boundaries of Alamosa County, Colorado?" The voter will have the option of selecting "yes" to prohibit marijuana dispensaries, or "no" to indicate they want to allow marijuana dispensaries to locate in the county.

The current moratorium on marijuana dispensaries will continue until the November election. If the voters elect to allow the dispensaries in the unincorporated areas of the county the current moratorium will continue until licensing regulations are adopted. Moratoriums cannot be extended beyond July 1, 2011, but can be discontinued earlier once the regulations are set.

Land use regulations will also need to be modified and approved by the board of commissioners before the moratorium can be lifted.

All regulations must be in accordance with the Colorado Medical Marijuana Code ( Article 43.3 to Title 12 of the Colorado Revised Statutes ) and Amendment 20 of the Colorado Constitution ( Article XVII, Section 14 ). The board of commissioners voted unanimously to "advocate opposition" to Proposition 101, Amendment 60 and Amendment 61. According to the resolution, these three issues will reduce and restrict state and local revenues in ways that include property taxes, telecommunication taxes, state income taxes and state shared revenues. Cutting these revenues will affect funds currently used by public entities including schools, libraries, fire stations, schools and road projects.

Because of the restrictions and revenue reductions these three proposals will mandate they will also impact many non-government organizations currently receiving monies from the county, such as senior citizens and 4-H.

Because of the severe economic impact the passing of Proposition 101, Amendment 60 and Amendment 61 would have on services currently provided by the county Alamosa County Commissioners Darius Allen, George Wilkinson, and Frank Mestas resolved to urge citizens of the county to vote against all three of the ballot measures.
