Thin Dotted line for Colorado Drug Rehab

Colorado Drug Rehab has taken the time to research drug addiction treatment extensively and we would like to give you access to the same information that we have. The State of Colorado did a cost analysis of drug treatment. You can read that report HERE.

Below we have a list of the websites where you can get information about drug interventions, drug rehab, drug rehabilitation, drug addiction treatment, and drug rehab centers. Take a look at these sites to find other treatment alternatives, but this isn't an endorsement for any of these other sites or providers. Just, possibly, helpful information.

What role should location play in choosing a drug or alcohol rehab?

Alcohol and drug addiction is, by definition, a habit of taking certain drugs on a repeating routine, but there are also habitual patters of behavior related to securing the drugs or alcohol and the building of relationships with other drug users and drug sales people...pushers.

These routines are important to the user and keep the addiciton fed.

In choosing a drug or alcohol rehab program, think in terms of breaking these patterns by picking an effective rehab program that is far enough away from their home that it can become a new enviornment where drugs aren't central to that location.

Most people that blow from treatment have some support from others. Sometimes it is a family member that begins believing what the addict or alcholic is telling them about the treatment center, but more often, it is the guy that profits from there use or a drinking or drugging "friend".

There are some good programs in Colorado, but it may also be the fact that you or your loved one will do much better if they go to treatment outside of Colorado.

Since nearly all alcoholics and drug addicts want to stop using, they will be the first to tell you that they would like to go somewhere out of their familiar area to find help. If they are wanting to stay near their home, then they are probably hedging their bets in case the treatment isn't giving them what they are expecting on an immediate basis.

Colorado Drug Rehab reviewed over 150 rehab centers throughout the US and, unfortunately, there aren't that many that are actually effective and worth your serious consideration...therefore, many times it will be necessary, but also beneficial, for the family to help the alcohol or addict leave their geographical area to seek effective alcohol and drug treatment.

One of the ways that States fund alcohol and drug rehab and prevention programs is through Discretionary funds. For your knowledge, the following is how these funds were spent in Fiscal Year 2004/2005:

The Family Trauma Treatment program will continue to implement, evaluate, and disseminate Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) for youth and their families experiencing traumatic stress in the Denver metropolitan area. Our primary objectives are: 1) to improve the quality, effectiveness, provision, and availability of therapeutic services delivered to children and adolescents who experience traumatic events and 2) to further the understanding among community first -responders on how to help prevent the occurrence of serious negative consequences of childhood trauma. To address the first objective, the proposed program would allow MHCD to increase the use of TF-CBT by implementing it among our school-based therapists, in addition to having MHCD's outpatient clinicians continue to use this best practice approach. Children will continueto be identified for trauma treatment as early as possible, through co-located staff at schools, shelters, and detention centers. And, data will be collected on trauma history and symptoms, as well as other child behaviors at three different points: 1) pre-therapy, 2) post-therapy or at six months, and 3) at six months follow-up to that. Data will be used internally, as well as sent electronically as a limited data set to the National Center for Child Traumatic Stress (NCCTS). To address the second objective, the proposed program would fund a Community Trauma Liaison. This liaison would spend significant amounts of time each month providing training and consultation to staff within the following agencies: 1) the Denver Police Department, 2) the Denver Department of Human Services, 3) Denver Public Schools, and 4) the Department of Youth Corrections. He/she will have individual or shared office space within each agency, as well as be available by cell phone, to meet and discuss trauma issues with agency staff two to four times each month.

The National Asian American Pacific Islander Mental Health Association, NAAPIMHA will address the critical lack of clinicians who are trained to provide culturally appropriate services to the diverse Asian American/Pacific Islander populations. While AAPIs are the fastest growing ethnic minority population in the country, they continue lack adequate resources that can provide quality mental health services to the target population. NAAPIMHA is uniquely situated to bring together experts from around the country who will design, implement and evaluate a core curriculum that will be used to train interns at the masters and doctoral level as well as psychiatric residents. Lessons learned from this process will be used to provide technical assistance to emerging communities attempting to increase their capacity to provide culturally compete t services in the future. The core curriculum will be based on training programs at RAMS, Inc. in San Francisco, the Asian Counseling Referral Services, ACRS in Seattle, the Asian Pacific Development Center, APCD in Denver, Hale Na'au Pono in Waea'na , Hawaii and SF General Hospital in SF. A total of 8 psychiatric residents, and 3 graduate level interns will be trained during the first year. In addition, RAMS, Inc is the only training program in the country that focuses on AAPIs that has been accredited by the American Psychological Association and is seen as one of the leading training models for AAPIs in the country. Each site has been nationally recognized for their outstanding work on providing culturally competent service and represents t geographical and ethnic diversity found in the AAPI communities. It is important to the core curriculum in different settings as a one-size fits-all-model for types of agencies would not be appropriate. An important component of the proposal will be the long awaited establishment of a National AAPI Consumer's Advisory Council. This, plus the hiring of a consumer advocate, will help insure that

Peer Assistance Services will implement Team Awareness, a model drug free workplace program, with 16-24 year olds who are employed by Youth Corps programs in Colorado. The three participating communities, Denver, Durango, and Steamboat Springs represent diverse populations living in both urban and rural settings who are a significant risk for alcohol and other drug use, both on and off the job. They have dropped out of school, lack job skills, have a history of impulsive or acting out behaviors, which are characteristics that are correlated with heavy use of substances. They represent an employment population that are often considered as ''throw-aways'' by employers, easier to replace than to fix. Peer Assistance Services, the employee assistance program (EAP) for Youth Corps, formed a collaborative planning committee with the three Youth Corps programs in Colorado, the Colorado Drug Free Workplace Alliance, the Colorado Association of Alcohol and Drug Service Providers, the DEA, and other organizations to implement a model drug free workplace model with this high-risk population. The planning committee, which will evolve into the project steering committee, expects the successful of Team Awareness with the Colorado Youth Corps will lead to replication in the 113 other Youth Corps programs nationally, as well as in other employment settings that hire young, unskilled workers. Team Awareness, a model drug free workplace program, has been selected by the planning committee to implement with the Youth Corps employees. The focus of Team Awareness on building peer support through team building exercises is an ideal model for Youth Corps which places the young employees in teams that work together in construction, rehabbing homes, and other projects.

Project activities include community- group- and individual-level interventions. The project will also introduce a family-strengthening program, (combined practices Nurturing Parenting and Be Proud! Be Responsible! Curricula) into public housing for extremely at-risk families. The Community project of Denver area Youth Services (DAYS), a minority-controlled, community-based, nonprofit Colorado agency, has provided services to high-risk Latino adults, youth and their families for 30 years; its experience in working with Latinos, providing substance abuse treatment and HIV education, makes it a perfect fit for coordinating this project.
