• Talk to a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor!
• Curing Addiction is All About Changing Your Ethics..
Have You Been Told "Once an Addict, Always an Addict"...Well, that's misinformation that fulfills its own prophecy!
When you call our line, you will be talking to a licensed professional with 35 years experience, State Director of Substance Abuse, Medical School Faculty Member, Director of 3 residential treatment centers, has performed over 500 alcohol or drug assessments/evaluations and reviewed over 150 rehab centers throughout the U.S. and Europe. Get the FACTS from a seasoned Professional.
This site isn't trying to sell anything, but is written as a public service from the experience of a retired leader in the treatment field that also had a family member that needed treatment. In the failed attempts to find effective treatment, I came to realize that there are very few rehab programs that are effective and you can depend on their results. Programs that make fundamental changes in a person and gives them the ability to handle adversity, conflict and life’s challenges without becoming overly involved emotionally and without getting caved-in by failure and having continual relapses.
90% of the treatment programs believe that addiction is a chronic and progressive disease. All curable problem were believed to be chronic and progressive until an answer was found. This concept of addiction being a chronic and progressive disease is responsible for making so many alcoholics and other addicted persons give in to their cravings, feel hopelessly discouraged and have endless excuses for their relapses.
It is time for the alcohol and drug rehab field to evolve and take responsibility for its failures and to not just assign their losses to “a strong case of the disease model”, or using the excuse that: “he hasn’t hit bottom hard enough”.
Addicts are not insane and only an insane person would continue to destroy themselves for a few hours of escape followed by hang-overs and regrets. We believe that the most of the alcohol and drug treatment field believes in profits over people and has perpetuated an moral crime against those who need help by offering programs that are knowingly getting less than 10% success and use multiple excuses rather than change their operating basis.
People want quick sound-bytes making It hard to get anyone to read this website, but since you must have gotten this far, I promise you that you will find the TRUTH about addiction in this site and find real solutions. KEEP READING!
If this is your first attempt at recovery or maybe you have been carrying many losses with you to this point, we assure you that we will give you answers that will make positive changes in your life and end your addiction. Whether you go to one of our recommended centers or use some of our courses, books or supplements, you will see outcomes that make our services incredibly valuable.

BE PREPARED WITH THE TRUTH BEFORE YOU START TALKING TO REHAB PROGRAMS.
When you call our help-line, you will talk to a professioal that has been a certified and/or licensed couselor for over 35 years. In that time he was a director or three residential alcohol and drug rehab programs and a State Director of Substance Abuse services. He has been a faculty member at the medical school in Colorado, but most importantly, he had addiction in his family and through his experiences with four different drug rehabs, he foud out the TRUTH about drug rehab in America. His research includes the on-site review of over 150 alcohol and drug treatment centers, as well as performing outcome studies to document the effectiveness of a center's work.
He will tell you that there isn't a more competetive and unethical area of medical services in our society. Addicts have very little political power and for that reason and others, this is a field that has't gotten the scrutinty that most medical services receive and there are many myths about addiction that keep rehab centers making huge profits and not rehabiliting and saving lives. Once you talk to our counselors, you will understand how this all happend and what you are up against, and most importantly, how to match your loved one with a rehab center that isn't based on the idea that addiction is an uncurable disease and therefore, relapse is part of the disease, etc. These are all messages to cover the ineffectiveness of most alcohol and drug treatment centers and is categorically untrue! Call and ask for the details! Then you will be able to make an educated decision as to what should be done for your addiction or that of a love one. 877-888-4802
According to Pamela White from the Colorado Springs Independent, issued October 27, 2012, in the United States, "Colorado ranks first per capita in marijuana use, second in severity of substance abuse problems and 49th on money being spent on alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs. Colorado is one of only nine states where over half of those in prison for drug charges are there for possession and Colorado is one of only three states that refuses to allow Medicaid funds to be used for drug treatment."
The only way that we are going to have a civil society that is free of drug-related crime is to demand change. Presently, Colorado is the Bottom-of-the-Bottom when it comes to services for substance abuse. We are ashamed and it is costing us, in many ways, dearly every day. Learn from our 35+ years in this field by reading this site and contact us if you want to make a difference!
Colorado Is Ambivalent About the New Marijuana Law
Vail, Colorado, along with Broomfield, Erie, Boulder and other communities are trying to put a moratorium on the opening of marijuana-related businesses. Certainly, the alcohol and drug rehab and prevention professionals are ambivalent about the new Amendment 64. Most of us are on the fence about the legalization of drugs. Certainly there has been a huge waste of resources and a misapplication of the intent of using a tremendous amount of money for law enforcement, prisons and interdiction, with very little being allocated to treating those who are the "victims" of the "drug war". This new law may shed some light on whether the future of prevention and treatment will be better if all illicit drugs were legalized. The statistics certainly have shown that the focus on penalties and felonies hasn't deterred the proliferation of dangerous drugs to more of our fellow-citizens and, more shockingly, to our children.
NOTHING WILL CHANGE UNLESS WE DEMAND CHANGE!
Help us CHANGE the face of Colorado's Prevention, Intervention, Treatment and Aftercare. Treatment failures should cause OUTRAGE and not resignation, acceptance and apathy! If you don't understand why you relapsed, call our counselors and we will help you see how alcohol and drug relapse doesn't have to be part of your future. Addiction kills, so there is no excuse for a Colorado drug rehab center to get outcomes around 10%, which is the average. Effective Drug Treatment saves lives.
(corollary...bad drug treatment kills..this is why we must confront this problem of Colorado's state-funded programs that are routinely ineffective. Force Colorado government to fund programs based on their successes and not their political connections. Call us if you have had a bad drug treatment experience or if you are still suffering from cravings and relapses after legitimately trying to stop your addiction. 877-888-4802.) We know that bad rehab make you feel like a failure... the rehab is a failure, not you!

Do We Need To Worry About Bath Salts?
Recently there have been news articles about our youth abusing bath salts. We know that adolescence bring on more concern about cleanliness, but this isn't what they are talking about. There are two drugs, called designer-drugs since they are synthesized in the lab, mephedrone and methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV), and are being marketed on the Internet as "research chemicals," "plant food" or "bath salts." These chemical compounds are not Epsom Salts or other types of reputable bath salts, but are only being sold to our children to be used as party drugs. Both of these compounds are synthetic stimulants with reported hallucinogenic properties. They are being sold in retail stores with names such as Cloud 9, Ivory Wave, Ocean, Charge Plus, White Lightning, Scarface, Hurricane Charlie, Red Dove and White Dove. Reference. The drug is being described as many times more potent that Ritalin and cocaine. The results of these drugs have led to accidental deaths and suicides. These drugs are not being limited to children, but are being found at parties of young adults as well.
One of our colleagues had a client that took Bath Salts and had to be flown to a major city's ER because it poisoned his kidneys and he was about to succumb. When asked if he would tell the police who sold him the Bath Salts, he replied that he isn't a snitch and wouldn't tell. Obviously, the drug was affecting more than his kidneys.
Colorado Drug Rehab - Drugs of Abuse*
Marijuana use and abuse among all age groups in Colorado ranks in the highest percentiles of any state. Marijuana is readily available in multi-pound quantities throughout Colorado. The highly potent form of marijuana known as "BC Bud" is also easily obtainable, although significantly more expensive. BC Bud is smuggled into Colorado from British Columbia, Canada, to Washington and Oregon. The sale of this potent and expensive form of Marijuana speaks to the affluence of the youth in Colorado as much as it is an indicator of lax enforcement of possession laws and a poorly developed drug prevention strategy in Colorado. There are many that believe that marijuana use is not a problem and justify it by comparing it to alcohol use. There is some room for comparison, but the effects of long-term marijuana use can cause lethargy and slowing of mental acuity. Find out more about marijuana at: http://www.drug-rehab-colorado.com/Marijuana.php or this government sponsored site: http://www.nida.nih.gov/infofacts/marijuana.html
On June 1, 2001, Colorado passed legislation that allows for the use and possession of small amounts of marijuana for sick and dying patients. This has led Colorado to be one of the leading states in the development and sale of medical marijuana. All but a very few counties in Colorado have dispenseries selling medical marijuana. Parents in Colorado report that their minor children are defending their use of marijuana by claiming that they need it as medication.
The Denver Post reports on 06/04/09: "Coloradans say they are doing less hard drinking than they did in the past few years but say they are more likely to smoke pot", according to a two-year federal assessment to be released today.
The National Survey on Drug Use and Health found Colorado was the only state to log a decrease in those who think they are at risk to binge- drink since the last study completed in 2006, from 29.8 percent in the previous study to 25.8 percent in the most recent.
Meanwhile, Colorado is one of seven states that noted "significant" increases in teens and adults who say they are more likely to smoke pot at least once a month than those who participated in the last government survey.
Cocaine is a significant drug threat to Colorado. Powdered cocaine is readily available throughout Colorado, and crack cocaine is available in urban population centers, like Denver and Colorado Springs in particular. Mexican criminal groups transport wholesale quantities of powdered cocaine into Colorado in private or rental vehicles and distribute the drug at the wholesale level. Retail distributors in Colorado typically convert powdered cocaine into crack on an as-needed basis and sell the drug at open-air markets or from crack houses. The I-70 corridor that transects Colorado from Kansas to Utah, is one of the main drug trafficking thoroughfares transporting cocaine from Mexico up to Colorado and then to the East Coast and West Coast.
The percentage of Colorado residents who report having abused cocaine in the past year is higher than the percentage nationwide. According to the 1999 and 2000 NHSDA, 2.5 percent of Colorado residents age 12 and over reported having abused cocaine in the year prior to the survey compared with 1.6 percent nationwide. Find more specific cocaine information at: http://www.drug-rehab-colorado.com/Cocaine.php or at this government sponsored site: http://www.whitehousedrugpolicy.gov/drugfact/cocaine/index.html
Methamphetamine, or Crystal Meth, poses the most serious drug abuse problem in the West Central Region of the US, which includes Colorado, largely because of high addiction rates and the abundance of low-cost ice methamphetamine supplied by Mexican traffickers. According to treatment data, amphetamine-related admissions (including those for methamphetamine) to publicly funded treatment facilities in the West Central Region increased significantly in recent years, which includes Colorado.
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. Find specific information at: http://www.drug-rehab-colorado.com/CrystalMeth.php
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 physical addiction. Cheese heroin (a black tar heroin/diphenhydramine mixture) has been widely developed in the Dallas, Texas area, with 22 deaths in Dallas County since 2005. There are no current reports of widespread cheese heroin abuse outside the Dallas area; however, in March the Boulder County, Colorado, Drug Task Force reported that novice heroin abusers were crushing over-the-counter pain relief tablets containing acetaminophen and diphenhydramine, mixing them into black tar heroin, and snorting the mixture. Find more thorough information at: http://www.drug-rehab-colorado.com/Heroin.php or at this government sponsored site: http://www.nida.nih.gov/infofacts/heroin.html
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 (the date-rape drug). 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. Find extensive information at this government site: http://www.clubdrugs.org/
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 in Colorado. OxyContin is readily available on the streets of most cities in Colorado as well as an epidemic of over-prescribing by physicians. Xanax is very addictive and is another drug of abuse from doctors and on the strees of Colorado. You can read more about the dangers of Xanax at: http://www.drug-rehab-colorado.com/xanax_rehab.php Find thorough data about prescription drug abuse at this government site: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/prescriptiondrugabuse.html

The Crystal Meth site, http://www.drug-rehab-colorado.com/CrystalMeth.php has been valuable to many "Ice" users because of its comprehensive overview and the inclusion of solutions to the crystal meth problem, such as hyperbaric medicine to heal the damage to the brain tissue.

What do Universities do if a dorm student has a prescription for legal marijuana, but the university has rules against smoking marijuana in the dorm? This is what the University of Colorado and Colorado State University have been grappling with ever since Colorado passed laws that allos someone to obtain marijuana as a medicine. Can you actually, and legally, stop someone from taking their medication in their homes? Not if it is legal. So, the more liberal University of Colorado has permitted those with marijuana legally to use it in their rooms. Do you think that there may be roommates and others that partake?
The more conservative Colorado State University is still looking into this issue and in the mean time, I am sure there are plenty of lawyers that are ready to challenge Colorado States' prohibition.
It appears that Colorado is leading the nation as a test site for the legalization of marijuana in the future.
