The mental health of small, isolated Colorado towns is a problem that can distract from the beauty of the rual, small-town setting. Most people expect to find mental health problems in larger cities, but the percentages of people with alcohol or drug addiction problems in small, rural Colorado, towns like Ault, Colorado have higher percentages of addiction problems than cities like Denver.

The isolation and lack of services in rural Colorado are part of the causes for the addiction problems seen in Ault, Colorado. The main difference is that neighbors in smaller towns know who is having problems and care more than those who get lost in the numbers of people in places like Denver. One does find that small towns take on a dominant culture or ethic. The town of Crestone, Colorado is about 1/3 the size of Ault, but because it has the reputation of being a retreat for "hippies" from the 60's, it may have a higher percentage of marijuana users than Ault.
