Colorado Drug Rehab is a free service that will help you find a drug rehab for any alcohol or drug addiction problem you or a loved one may be having. It is easy to confuse the different terms used in this field, describing the different types of drug rehab centers, drug rehabilitation centers, and substance abuse treatment programs. For the problem that you are addressing, should you be looking for an Outpatient, In-patient, Residential Treatment Center, Long term or Short term treatment and what modality of treatment is the most effective and what are the cost related to these forms of treatment or rehab.
As with most of Colorado, Littleton found its growth and history with the rush to the gold fields of the front range of the Rocky Mountains after the Civil War. In 1871 Littleton saw the railroads come through the area and the small farming town began to be a center of commerce with an influx of "strangers" from the East and neighboring territories and states. The city was incorporated in 1890 and the only substance abuse problems they faced were related to alcohol and the legal sale of opiate-based over-the-counter medicines that treated all ills except for its own addictive properties.
As with most growing communities that have become suburban residential communities adjacent to larger cities (Denver), Littlelton has seen an increase of illicit drug use and sales.
Adolescent drug abuse is always a problem for affluent communities of similar makeup and the nation saw the effects of this and overly medicating the youth on psychiatric medication with the tragedy at Colombine High School.
Too many families in Littleton are continually seeking successful actions related to their children's drug abuse and many parents have contacted our agency with problems related to addiction to pharmaceutical opiates such as Vicodin or Oxicontin.

As talked about elsewhere on this site, there are four major treatment approaches in the handling of addiction. The most common is the derived from the 12-step of AA/NA and are based on getting the patients though the first three steps during their treatment stay. These programs are usually 30-day program or Intensive Outpatient programs where a person attends treatment from 12 to 20 hours/week, usually having a schedule of three to four hours in the weekday evenings. These programs are referred to as "Disease Model" programs because they contend that addiction is a chronic and progressive disease.
These program do not see relapse as part of the "disease", so they do not envision a person completed cured of his addiction, but see the addict as being in or out of recovery, which they believe is a life-long process.
There is one Therapeutic Community or TC for short in the Littleton area. This program is administered by the University of Colorado's Health Science's Center and uses behavior modification as its clinical model. these programs can be very difficult for most to finish and the success rate is runs less than 10%.
Other than doctors in the Littleton area that prescribe Buprenorphine for opiate withdrawal symptoms, there are not other modalities of treatment in the Littleton area.
However, in March, 2007, a new Biophysical program will open in Fort Collins, Colorado, giving the most effective treatment services to residences of Littleton and surrounding Colorado. Call and speak to one of our counselors and ask him to help you do a comparative analysis of the different treatment modalities so that you can decide which treatment makes sense for you or your loved one.
