The state of Colorado features a variety of gorgeous and amazing things. Snow-capped mountains, dense forests, and beautiful blue skies are all things you can look forward to if you’re visiting or living in Colorful Colorado.
Despite the beauty that this state has to offer, Colorado also faces a severe drug and alcohol abuse problem.
In 2015, over 35,000 residents of the state of Colorado sought treatment for alcohol dependence, with another 51,000 seeking treatment for other substance use disorders.
According to a study conducted by the Colorado Health Institute, the overdose rates in Colorado have risen in every single county in the state, and doubled in Arapahoe county.
Statistics like these can be difficult to read, but despite the disheartening information above, Colorado offers many therapeutic and community resources for those struggling with substance abuse, as well as their families.
Making the decision to seek out substance abuse services is a big step – but choosing a treatment center can be an overwhelming and difficult process. At Sandstone Care, we believe that treatment must be individualized in order to best meet the needs of our clients and set them up for success.
