Medical detox & inpatient treatment

Our Medical Assisted Detox and Inpatient Assessment program is led by a highly credentialed team of doctors, nurses, and licensed therapists.

During the first 48 hours, you are assessed by our medical and clinical teams with an initial focus on stabilization and safely managing withdrawal symptoms. Once stabilized, to better support the recovery journey, clients also participate in individual and group therapies.

Colorado Springs Substance Use Disorder Treatment Options

Marijuana Treatment

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

Alcohol Treatment

Studies have found that binge drinking & heavy alcohol use are often ways adults cope with stress and anxiety.

Stimulant Treatment

Commonly abused stimulants include cocaine, methamphetamines, and prescription stimulants, like Ritalin, Adderall, and Concerta.

Opioid Treatment

Opioid misuse occurs when a person uses heroin or misuses prescription pain relievers like hydrocodone, oxycodone, and morphine.

The First 48 Hours: Assessments & Evaluations

Once clients are stabilized, to get a clearer picture of their individual needs, full medical, psychiatric, and psychological assessments are completed.

Each assessment process is tailored to the unique needs of each client, but some of the topics covered in each assessment will include:

Icon Person Refresh
Physical Health

In addition to an initial evaluation with our Nurse Practitioner, clients will be assessed every four hours by a member of our nursing team. This nursing assessment includes checking vital signs, monitoring withdrawal symptoms, and administering medications as needed.

Substance Abuse Evaluation

An initial evaluation of a client’s substance abuse history will be completed. This information will be gathered again later during the biopsychosocial assessment, which is completed by a therapist or certified addiction counselor.

Icon Mental Health
Mental Health

Each day, clients have a one-on-one check in with a therapist or counselor to evaluate their mental and emotional status, as well as any symptoms of depression, anxiety, PTSD, or any other mental health disorders they may be struggling with.

Family History

During the biopsychosocial assessment, clients are asked to provide in-depth information about the history of family medical, mental health, and substance use disorders to help inform medical and clinical recommendations and treatment planning.

Icon Dual Diagnosis
Initial Psychiatric Evaluation

Every client meets with our psychiatric nurse practitioner for an initial evaluation of their mental health and psychiatric status. This evaluation will determine whether or not psychiatric medications would be useful in the management of any symptoms and diagnoses.

Medication Management

It’s important for the medical and clinical staff to know what medications clients have been on in the past. If medications are prescribed by the medical team at Colorado Springs Detox Center, regular assessments of medication effectiveness will be completed in order to ensure we are providing the best and most effective care possible.

Discharge Planning Assessment

The discharge planning team works with each client individually to build a discharge plan that is unique to them. Depending on the client’s specific needs, they may be given referrals for residential, extended care, or outpatient programs for ongoing aftercare support.

A Day at Detox

Colorado Springs Detox Center is a medical detox and residential treatment center. We serve clients who are struggling with drugs or alcohol and co-occurring disorders including trauma, anxiety, or depression.

With six hours of clinical groups per day, two individual therapy sessions per week, and 24/7 clinical support available, the program’s primary focus is creating a safe and secure environment in which clients can detox and then utilize our residential programming to begin working through any underlying co-occurring mental health issues.

Depression Treatment

Depression is more than just feeling down for a few days — symptoms are long lasting and can affect you in many ways.

Anxiety & Bi-Polar Treatment

Anxiety disorders are thought patterns of fear, dread, and uneasiness that affect other aspects of your life.

Trauma & PTSD Treatment

Trauma is the emotional response to a specific event like an accident, sexual abuse, or a natural disaster.

ADHD & Borderline Personality Disorder Treatment

ADHD is marked by difficulty focusing, controlling impulsive behaviors, and over-activity.

Dual-Diagnosis explained

Treating Co-Occurring Mental Health Conditions

Not only are we experts in safe medical detox, but we also believe in treating the whole person and have staff who are trained in identifying and treating mental health problems along with the addiction.

Treating the whole person, includes addressing co-occurring disorders concurrently with substance abuse and/or addiction.

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.

Program highlights

We offer 24/7 medically supervised care to support a safe and comfortable stabilization followed by a comprehensive treatment that addresses your physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual needs.

Comprehensive Residential Programming

Our residential program offers six hours of therapeutic group per day, two individual therapy sessions per week with a licensed therapist, and 24/7 clinical support.

Continuum of Care

Sandstone Care is not a stand alone detox. In addition to our residential program, we have a full continuum of care with varying outpatient treatment programs designed to meet your unique situation and needs.

Amenities

TV’s in rooms, high staff to client ratio, chef-prepared meals, ample green space, and uncompromised support from every staff person.

Robust Discharge Planning

From the moment you are admitted into our center, we begin to work with you on a discharge plan that includes referrals and a warm hand-off to another treatment center.

Early Mornings: Waking up

During the first few days of a drug and alcohol detox, rest is extremely important. Clients ease into their mornings with scheduled time specifically for waking up, getting ready for the day, breakfast, and meeting with a member of the medical team. The nursing staff spends time with each client individually in order to check their vital signs, assess their withdrawal symptoms, and administer any medications that were prescribed.

Mid-Mornings: Letting it out

After completing their morning routine, clients are invited to join staff and their peers in the common area for morning group. This is a time for clients to share how they’re feeling emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually, and for staff to assess the needs of each client.

Discussions are led by a licensed therapist or addiction counselor and range from topics like self-esteem, relationships, and trust, to relapse prevention and life changes.

Afternoons: Opening up

Lunch is prepared daily by our on-site culinary team and is served family style. An important part of the addiction treatment and recovery process is receiving proper nutrition to begin healing both body and mind.
After lunch, clients are invited to join our clinical staff and their peers in the afternoon group. Topics covered include mindfulness, life skills, managing cravings, and coping skills.

Evenings: Community & reflections

After dinner, clients are invited to join a sober member of the community for an on-site recovery meeting. These community-led meetings rotate between 12-Step, SMART Recovery, and Refuge Recovery.

After the addiction recovery meeting is finished, clients are given time to wind down. This is a time for clients to talk with each other, journal, and connect with their family members via phone.

Before lights out, medications are administered as needed and clients have time to check in with medical staff before they’re asked to gather for a short Nightly Reflection. This group session is led by a member of the behavioral health team and is an opportunity for clients to focus on gratitude and reflect on the events of their day.

Clients are asked to share how they’re doing mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. They are also given the opportunity to make any amends to their peers or staff for things that were said or done during the day.

You have questions. We have answers.

Our goal is to provide the most helpful information. Please reach out to us if you have any additional questions. We are here to help in any way we can.

Knowing what level of care would be best for you is tricky! If you experience withdrawal symptoms when you attempt to discontinue use, it is more than likely you would benefit from detox. However, the best way to know whether or not you would benefit from medical detox is to get a professional opinion. Our trained admissions team would be happy to speak with you and advise you on next steps.

Every person Sandstone Care treats is different. While some detox facilities have a set number of days and a detox protocol that is the same for everyone, we tailor our treatment to meet our clients where they are at. The average length of stay is 5-14 days. Some of the factors that impact length of stay are:

  • What substances from which the client is detoxing
  • How long the client has been drinking or using drugs
  • The frequency that the client has been drinking or using drugs
  • Overall physical and mental health of the client
  • Underlying medical conditions

When you arrive to the Colorado Springs Detox & Inpatient Center, you will be greeted at the door by one of our staff members. A nurse and behavioral health technician will guide you through the admission and intake process which includes several assessments and initial evaluations. Then you will be shown to your bedroom and given some time to settle in and meet other staff and clients in the facility.

Each client is supported by a highly credentialed, multidisciplinary treatment team that includes a Medical Doctor, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, Licensed Clinicians, Registered Nurses, Addiction Counselors, and Case Managers. Learn more about our clinical and medical teams.

The Colorado Springs Center sits on a beautiful property in central Colorado Springs with views of the Rocky Mountains. Some of the notable features of our facility include:

Yes. Upon admission, you will be evaluated by our medical team, which will determine what medications will be used to make your detox safe and comfortable.

Family members and friends are welcome to call Colorado Springs Detox Center in order to receive an update about their loved one, but we currently do not offer visitation.

During your stay at Colorado Springs Detox Center, clients will have access to their personal cell phones. However, clients will not have access to their personal laptops. These will be kept in our secure storage area for the duration of your stay.

Yes. Smoking and vaping are allowed in designated outdoor areas, but all tobacco and nicotine products must be brought to the facility unopened and in their original packaging. They will be inspected upon arrival. Teens are not allowed to vape.

Our boutique center has a maximum of 18 clients at a time with a 3 to1 staff-to-client ratio. Clients have comfortable double rooms with a private bath, and private rooms are available for an additional flat fee of $5,000 for your entire stay.

Residential centers are rehabilitation services that are provided outside of a hospital setting and typically offer longer stays within the facility. These live-in centers provide structure, assistance with employment or education, as well as group and individual therapies that focus on addressing underlying psychological or behavioral problems related to substance abuse.

Inpatient rehabilitation often involves a short-term stay within a hospital setting with health professionals and is used in emergency situations to help stabilize their health. As a result, continued treatment in follow-up programs may be required.
