Look for an organization that assesses physical and mental health, as well as qualifications for your loved one’s specific needs.

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

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.

Durango Drug Problem

Durango has several archaeological sites including Mesa Verde National Park, Chimney Rock national Monument, and Durango Rock Shelters Archeology Site.

Despite the natural beauty surrounding Durango, the residents have struggled with opioid related overdoses and deaths. In 2016, there were 13 suicides and over half of them were drug overdoses. Three of the suicides involved the potent fentanyl, a more lethal type of opioid that is used as anesthesia. Durango has had to deal with alcohol, methamphetamine and marijuana addiction and use. Often the rates of addiction in these rural counties are the same as their more populated counterparts, but with fewer resources available to help its residents.

In Colorado, there were 564 opioid-involved deaths in 2018. Fentanyl and other synthetic opioids continue to be problematic for drug users, as synthetic opioids are very strong and when mixed with heroin or other substances can be deadly. The opioid relation death rate is double the rate of deaths in car crashes.
