There are approximately 31,000 Colorado drug rehab and addiction treatment center admissions each year, however, due to the high relapse rate of many traditional programs most families in Durango are searching for something that works. This is where Colorado Drug Rehab can help. Durango, Colorado is similar to many of the ski resort communities in Colorado except for the fact that it has a higher level of tourism in the warmer months, than in the winter. The population is divided between those that can afford to have property and service personnel, many of whom are illigals from Mexico. Colorado Drug Rehab receives most of its inquires from addicted individuals that have the financial wherewithal to afford private drug rehab or some form of residential treatment. There is also a significant alcohol problem among the Native Americans, (Navajos and Southern Hopi), who are under-served in terms of afordable or free alcohol residential treatment. The Southern Hopi tribe has a small residential treatment facility located east of the Durango city limits, however, it is dedicated to members of that tribe.

Latest Drug News in Durango


While Breckenridge is starting a moratorium on new marijuana clinics, Drugano anounces this on June 23, 2010 in the Durango Herald:


Existing Medical Operations Get Opportunity For State Sanction

La Plata County commissioners on Tuesday voted to temporarily lift a moratorium on medical marijuana operations, giving existing operators a shot at remaining open while state regulations are drafted.

Had commissioners left the temporary suspension on land-use development in place, operators would have missed the July 1 deadline when they must prove to the state that they have local approval or have applied for it.

The county Planning Department will begin accepting applications at 8 a.m. today and will take them until 5 p.m. June 30, when the moratorium goes back into place.

Commissioner Kellie Hotter voted against lifting the moratorium while commissioners Wally White and Joelle Riddle voted for it.

Riddle's decision was informed by her position on the state Board of Health, which has been heavily involved in the issue on a state level, but also by her personal experience.

"I have a son who has cerebral palsy, and should he choose at some point to become a member of the registry," he should have a safe reliable way to access ( medical marijuana ), she said.

Colorado voters legalized medical marijuana in 2000, but marijuana operations didn't start emerging in local communities until last year when the Obama administration announced it would not seek to prosecute individuals who are complying with state laws, although medical marijuana remains illegal under federal law.

State lawmakers slammed together a law last session that sets new rules for growing and selling medical marijuana. The law, signed by the governor earlier this month, has the state and local governments sharing regulatory authority.

On this new stage, state and local governments are rushing full tilt to draft their rules - all of which could become moot if the federal government changes its position.

Although for a limited time the county will accept applications for land-use permits for medical marijuana operations, it does not yet have a process for reviewing or approving them.

Over the coming months, those will be drafted - a process County Attorney Sheryl Rogers said will likely take hundreds of hours of attorney time.

Hotter noted the hefty expense it will represent in times of shortage.

"This is no small venture," she said.

Riddle said it was nonetheless obligatory.

"That is our job as government to put these things in place," she said.

Many medical marijuana entrepreneurs have pointed out the potential economic benefits to communities in the form of jobs and tax revenue.

But Hotter said even economic development, of which she has been a strong champion, doesn't always get a free pass.

"We wouldn't as a community allow a coal-fired power plant to plop down in the middle of our community just because it was going to bring us extensive revenues or hire a lot of people," she said.

Hotter said she would like to see county residents vote on whether commercial medical marijuana operations should be allowed.

The state law gives communities the power to prohibit centers in their boundaries - Bayfield trustees did just that - but communities cannot ban the use of medical marijuana or its administration by "caregivers," which require no local license so long as they provide medical marijuana to no more than five patients.

Riddle, however, said the voters had spoken.

"The positive, responsible behavior I think at this juncture would be to regulate and to own up to the fact that medical marijuana has been legalized for use by patients, and we have at least 1,500 registered in La Plata County," she said.

Riddle said Congress needs to weigh in and clarify matters at the federal level.

"We need to stress that those who are in federal office get off their heinies and make some good decisions," she said to applause.

Before voting, commissioners heard about two hours of public testimony from people for and against lifting the moratorium.

Ann Mooney, who ran an Ignacio motorcycle shop with her husband, Steve, strongly opposed lifting the moratorium, saying the operations drive down property values and attract crime.

She cited an ad she recently saw in The Durango Herald touting a property with a secure site for growing medical marijuana.

"How cavalier is that? It's an atmosphere of anything goes," she said.

Victor Figueroa, executive director of student support services for Durango School District 9-R, said school officials are wary.

"We are concerned when anything comes across that may increase our youths' ability to access drugs," he said.

But grower Jocko McGregor argued that maintaining the moratorium would only fuel a black market.

"I may have to go out of business. The guy who takes my place may not be as good-footed as me. And someone will take my place," he said.

Currently, most growers in the county are operating as home-based businesses, which does not require a county permit.

Grower Paul Coffey said regulations would move those businesses out of homes and onto farms or into commercial space.

"Growing in a home is just ridiculous. No one wants to do that," he said.

By creating a local permitting process, the county makes it possible for operators to get the state's blessing to remain in business until the final state regulations are in place in July 2011. At that time, all centers - existing and aspiring - will have to apply under the same process.

County officials said they expect to revamp their rules once the state regulations are in place.

"It wouldn't be a complete do over probably," Rogers said.

White said state lawmakers likely had urban areas in mind in crafting the new medical marijuana law.

"I don't know that they considered the impact on a rural community like this," he said.

Despite the rushed and imperfect process, he said he supported commercial operations in the county, but with limits.

"I think it's incumbent on us to try to get some guidelines," he said.

Colorado Drug Situation*

Cocaine is considered a significant drug threat to Colorado. Powder cocaine is readily available throughout the State and crack cocaine is available in urban population areas. Cocaine is the drug most often associated with violent crime in the State. Cocaine is generally sold in ounce and pound quantities in Colorado. Crack use is declining but remains available in the larger metropolitan areas of Colorado.

Club drugs, which are mostly synthetic substances, are increasing in availability and use in Colorado. LSD in liquid form is readily available in the metropolitan areas of Colorado. During 2001, 34% of those surveyed in Colorado reported lifetime usage of MDMA. 4.5% of those surveyed reported usage of MDMA within the past 30 days. The average user age was 17.3, and the average age of first time use was 15.9 years.

Heroin - The most common types of heroin available in Colorado are Mexican black tar heroin and brown powdered heroin. New heroin users in Colorado are often young adults who smoke or snort the drug rather than inject it. This is due to a misconception that this practice is safer and less likely to lead to addiction.

Marijuana is readily available in multi-pound quantities throughout Colorado . A highly potent form of marijuana, called "BC Bud," is also easily obtainable.

Methamphetamine is a primary drug threat to Colorado. Crystal methamphetamine, also known as glass in Colorado, is becoming increasingly available throughout the State and has tested as high as 90% pure. Purity levels for methamphetamine vary in Colorado.

Prescription Drugs - The diversion and abuse of OxyContin (oxycodone) is a significant problem in Colorado. Hydrocodone (Vicodin) and Darvocet are the most commonly abused controlled substances.
