OPIOID ADDICTION & HOW TO HELP
Depending on how long your loved one has been abusing opioids, you may find a variety of reactions. Most addicts are so focused on their addiction and seeking the next high that they’re completely unaware of the impact their disease is having on their family and friends. They may be in denial that they even have a problem or they may become defensive or combative as they try to avoid the issue.
We always suggest planning the conversation when the addict is most likely to be sober, often first thing in the morning, right when they wake up. This gives you the best chance of getting through to them and they’re less likely to be irrational and lost in their emotions. Remain calm when talking and present facts - avoid being drawn into anger or arguments.
When a loved one is experiencing opioid addiction, try to remember some of these other tips:
- Keep the communication lines open and honest
- Try not to pass judgement; instead listen to their thoughts, beliefs and experiences with an open mind
- Be supportive Offer healthy and alternative resources
- Establish strong boundaries by not enabling them
- Have patience
- Spend quality time with your loved one
- Educate yourself on opioid addiction and its topics as much as you can
OPIOID ADDICTION & HOW TO HELP
You can’t become physically addicted after just one dose. However, for many addicts, it only takes one dose for them to decide that this is their drug of choice. The speed at which the drug can take hold depends much on the method of delivery: ingesting pills, smoking or snorting, or injection. Thus, when answering the question of whether or not opioid addiction is treatable, now you know that answer is yes. All it takes is dedication, patience, and love. If you are addicted to opioids and need to find opioid abuse treatment in Colorado, please call our rehab center today.

Inpatient Residential Rehab
Inpatient Residential Treatment is the highest level of care. It encompasses around the clock care and monitoring. All clients reside on the program campus, where they will attend all their individual therapy, medication management, group therapy, holistic therapies, and more.
Peaks Recovery is licensed to provide both inpatient and residential drug and alcohol treatment services to adults of all ages. For the duration of programming patients are housed in beautiful gender separate housing providing a nurturing environment that promotes personal well being and recovery.
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
A partial hospitalization program is the next step down after completing inpatient rehab. If necessary, a stabilized patient will transition into a sober living environment while still attending their needed classes, therapy sessions, or scheduled doctor appointments.
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
IOP is one of the more flexible levels of care, and is usually only recommended to those who have completed an inpatient program. Intensive outpatient programming involves anywhere from nine to fifteen hours per week of clinical contact hours ranging from group counseling, to individual sessions, and on-going psychiatric evaluations. To achieve these hours you are encouraged to participate in group therapy for three hours a day over the course of three days or five days per week depending on the clinical recommendation.
Unlike inpatient and residential drug and alcohol addiction treatment programs, you can continue to live at home, continue with your job or school, and enjoy your additional free time with family and friends.
Dual Diagnosis: Dual Diagnosis, also referred to as co-occuring disorders, is when an individual experiences a mental health disorder and a substance use disorder concurrently. If a mental disorder is present in conjunction with substance abuse, they must address each issue separately in order to establish an appropriate course of treatment in a dual diagnosis rehab.

Holistic Rehab: True holistic care involves an individual entering into a professional care setting that provides guidance from trained therapists. From there, traditional types of therapy for addiction will be used in conjunction with complementary or alternative holistic treatments.
