Colorado Detox Centers for Drug & Alcohol Addiction

The struggle with addiction to drugs or alcohol is real throughout Colorado much like it is in the rest of the United States. A state notorious for low taxes and a strong school system, Colorado is attractive to many—recent marijuana legalization has deeply impacted the area creating a surplus in tax funds and lowered drug related criminal activity.

Sadly, opiate addiction, methamphetamine abuse and heroin overdoses are still a major concern throughout the state. If you or someone you love is struggling with addiction, Colorado detox centers can help you overcome the physical burden of the addiction in preparation for recovery.

Why Choose Colorado Detox Centers?

Addiction to drugs or alcohol can leave you feeling lost and hopeless. It’s only natural to be afraid, or to feel overwhelmed. And figuring out that you can’t possibly get sober without help takes time—and courage.

Your decision to seek the help of a Colorado detox center will depend on a wide variety of potential situations. Maybe you need help learning how to live without drugs or alcohol. Maybe you have an underlying health condition that is causing you pain. Perhaps you need someone to monitor you because you KNOW that you’re susceptible to delirium tremens or other serious complications associated with drug or alcohol withdrawal.

No matter what your reason is for seeking detox, the end goal is to feel better, overcome physical symptoms of withdrawal and prepare your body for the extensive counseling and support that comes during longer term addiction treatment.

How Long is Colorado Alcohol Detox?

Withdrawal from alcohol has three major stages. The first stages occurs within 8-12 hours after your last drink and includes anxiety and nausea much like a hangover. The second stage begins within 24-72 hours after your last drink and includes high-blood pressure and an increase in body temperature which may lead to profuse sweating. The final stage of alcohol detox can last 3 days or more and may include fever, seizures and other complications.

The amount of time you will spend in a Colorado alcohol detox center will vary. Most people can enter detox for a period of 7-10 days and come out ready for rehabilitation.

How Long is Colorado Drug Detox?

The type of drug you use, the length of time you’ve been using the drug and many unique factors related to you define the amount of time you will spend in a Colorado drug detox center. Consider the following:

Inpatient vs. Outpatient Detox Centers in CO

Determining whether you need inpatient detox or outpatient detox can be challenging simply because you have to decide what’s best literally and not what you “WANT” to be best. Many people want to choose outpatient detox over inpatient detox simply because this level of care is less invasive. Sadly, it’s also less effective in most cases.

Choose inpatient detox if:

  • You’ve ever relapsed before.
  • You can’t seem to say “no” to drugs or alcohol.
  • You’ve seemingly tried every other option to get sober.
  • You struggle with strong symptoms of withdrawal when you quit.
  • You have suffered from seizure or other serious complications when you quit.

Choose outpatient detox if:

  • You have a strong support network at home.
  • You are prepared to seek inpatient care if the need arises.
  • You do not struggle with strong symptoms of physical withdrawal.
