Marijuana has become a way to self-medicate for underlying issues and it’s easy to become dependent on its use.

Choosing a Rehab Treatment Center

The Right Program: A detailed interview and assessment process with a clinical professional. Look for an organization that assesses physical and mental health, as well as qualifications for your loved one’s specific needs. Make sure the organization you’re considering has skilled experience with the the drawbacks your loved on is facing.

If the organization isn’t right for your substance abuse treatment, ask if they have referrals for a more appropriate fit.

Professional Team: Look for a licensed, experienced organization that focuses on a team-oriented approach, working together to support each client and their family. Find a team that includes individual and family therapists, substance abuse counselors, psychiatrists, and dietitians.

A highly credentialed team taking a holistic approach to care is critical to achieving successful outcomes from substance abuse and addiction treatments.

Safety: An organization that focuses on participant safety, both physical and emotional. Many people will discover through the treatment process that abstinence from all substances is the best choice for them. Through this journey, it is important to support participants in staying safe and reducing harm.

Find a support system you trust to aid your substance abuse and addiction treatment.

Mental Health and Trauma Training: Drug abuse and addiction generally co-occur with a mental health or trauma experience. It is important that a treatment program has the ability to treat not only substance abuse but also underlying mental health concerns and trauma.

Ideally, a program would have a psychiatrist on staff, and staff trained in trauma-informed care. A good support system believes recovery and healing are two sides of the same coin, and both are necessary for long-lasting success.

An Individualized Program: An organization that tailors the experience to the individual and their unique needs. Find a team that sees you or your loved one as a person and creates a support program based on what is needed. True change from substance abuse and addiction treatment comes from authentic connection and genuine investment.

Strengths Based: An approach that focuses on what is working and nurtures those activities, patterns, and behaviors to encourage health and vibrancy.

Evidence-Based Care: An organization that draws on research and time-tested practices for the best possible outcome. Research or ask about the therapy methods they use in addition treatment.

Family Oriented: Any large life challenge always affects and is impacted by the surrounding system. Find an organization that supports and integrates the whole family. No one walks the road to recovery alone.

Jefferson County’s Drug Problem

Despite the beauty surrounding and located in Wheat Ridge, the city faces its own set of challenges when it comes to substance abuse. Colorado is facing an epidemic of opioid use disorders and overdoses, with an estimated 224,000 people misusing prescription drugs each year.

Wheat Ridge is located in Jefferson County where there is a growing older population more vulnerable to chronic pain, a higher frequency of risky prescription practices and higher opioid-related rates of ER visits and deaths from prescription opioid overdoses.

In 2018, there were 110 deaths related to drug intoxication, with 87 of those deaths being accidental.

How Wheat Ridge is Managing its Public Health Crisis

In response to the growing substance use epidemic, Jefferson County’s Public Health Department created four different initiatives: Baby and Me Tobacco Free, Communities that Care (CTC), Prescription Opioid Overdose Prevention, & Tobacco Prevention.
 

Communities that Care

CTC is a coalition of approximately 100 stakeholders who are using a structured, evidenced-based community change process focused on preventing substance use, reducing sexual/relationship violence and homelessness among youth. The focus is on reducing risk factors and increasing protective factors.

Several initiatives include:

  • Twelve Talks to Have with Teens – provides parents and other trusted adults with conversation starters, information and resources related to challenging topics including substance use, boundaries, friends and dating.
  • Trustable Adults – Comprehensive list of training for adults who work with youth.
  • Navigating Substance Experimentation in Teens (NSET) – no-cost parenting workshop held on the first Wednesday of each month.

 

Prescription Opioid Overdose Prevention

This program provides several key measures to reduce the effects of opioid addiction including making available naxalone to front line workers, provide needle disposal in the community and other prevention programs

In response to the growing substance use epidemic, Jefferson County’s Public Health Department created four different initiatives: Baby and Me Tobacco Free, Communities that Care (CTC), Prescription Opioid Overdose Prevention, & Tobacco Prevention.

In addition to seeking out support from addiction professionals, having a network of people that will build you up as you continue your sobriety is very important. Organizations like 12 Step Programs and SMART Recovery provide meetings that build up sober individuals and help to create a supportive community.
