Colorado Springs Detox

What We Treat

Our center treats alcohol and variety of drugs in a safe and medically supported manner. We believe in treating the whole person, so we will address co-occurring mental health disorders and trauma in addition to the addiction. 

Medical Detox

Our highly trained team are experts in implementing appropriate medical protocols for a variety of substances as well as alcohol. After a proper medical assessment upon admission, we will tailor a treatment program to your specific needs and ensure that you have as comfortable detox as possible. 

Alcohol Detox

Withdrawing from alcohol without medical support can be very dangerous and life threatening. We provide medication to ease the effects of withdrawals to keep you safe along with around the clock nursing care.

Heroin Detox

Detoxing from heroin can be painful, which prevents some from seeking treatment. Our heroin detox protocol reduces the effects of withdrawal so that you can get the drug out of your system.

Benzo Detox

The symptoms of benzodiazepine use include sleep disturbance, tremors, anxiety & panic attacks, nausea and sweating. Our detox program uses medications to reduce these symptoms. 

Treating Co-Occurring Mental Health

Often a substance abuse issue can be related to an untreated or underlying mental health problem. For example, a person is feeling depressed and turns to marijuana to numb the feeling.  And sometimes substance use can actually trigger a mental health issue; latent schizophrenia may emerge in the early adult years as a result of drug use. We understand the importance of treating the whole person, which includes addressing co-occurring disorders concurrently with substance abuse and/or addiction. Here are some examples of co-occurring mental health disorders: 

  • ADD & ADHD
  • Anxiety (OCD & PTSD)
  • Depression
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Trauma
  • Social Anxiety
  • Emerging personality disorders
  • Pain disorders

Because there can be an overlap in symptoms between drug use and mental health disorders, it’s very important to accurately assess and treat both challenges together.  If not treated this way, recovery can be much more difficult, as treatment may only be focusing on one half of the problem.

An individual can attend an alcohol rehab program, but never address the underlying anxiety disorder. While they may learn to stop drinking, the root of the issue isn’t addressed and another substance or unhealthy pattern may come into their life to cope with the anxiety. 

Conversely, many people seek help for mental health disorders, not fully comprehending that their substance use may be greatly contributing to their mental health in a negative way. Not only are we experts in safe medical detox, but we believe in treating the whole person and have staff who are trained in identifying and treating mental health problems along with the addiction.
