Drug and Alcohol Rehab Programs in Colorado

Footprints to Recovery’s drug and alcohol rehab programs in Colorado provide comprehensive inpatient and outpatient services to support you through the transition from treatment back into everyday life. Our Colorado rehabs offer a full continuum of care to help you achieve long-term recovery and establish a healthy, sober lifestyle.

Our levels of care include:

Medical Detox Program

Medical detox programs ensure the safety and comfort of each client during withdrawal from drugs or alcohol. Physicians and nurses provide around-the-clock care, monitoring vitals and administering proven medications and approaches to ease withdrawal symptoms.

Residential Treatment Program

Residential treatment programs provide care for clients following detox. Through the use of evidence-based therapies and drug addiction counseling, clients explore the underlying causes of their substance abuse while learning skills to manage cravings and avoid relapse.

Partial Care Program

Partial care programs, also known as partial hospitalization or PHP, allow clients to participate in treatment for five days out of the week. PHP day programs provide between 4-6 hours of clinical care.

Intensive Outpatient Program

Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) are primarily geared toward those who don’t need medical detoxification or 24-hour supervision. An IOP serves as a step-down program following residential care or an alternative to inpatient treatment.

Outpatient Program

Outpatient programs allow clients to recover while living in the comfort of their own homes. Traditional OPs require less weekly attendance in treatment than intensive outpatient to allow for flexibility while still providing a comprehensive level of care.


Telehealth offers convenient and accessible care, providing greater flexibility in navigating recovery challenges for mental health disorders and substance abuse treatment. Virtual appointments ensure quality treatment while accommodating different time schedules, distances from treatment, and time-sensitive obstacles along the way.

Colorado Addiction Therapies

Successful addiction treatment requires individualized treatment approaches. Our Denver drug rehab programs provide our clients with the necessary tools and resources for success, such as evidence-based therapies, addiction and mental health education, recovery support groups, and integrated case management services.

At Footprints to Recovery near Denver, CO, we provide an expansive list of therapies including:

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is the use of specific pharmaceutical medications to decrease cravings for addictive substances and increase the likelihood of staying sober. These medications have been shown in research to improve the outcomes of addiction treatment over time.

MAT involves collaboration with a multidisciplinary team of professionals including physicians, psychiatrists, psychologists, and addiction counselors. The main objective is to develop a personalized plan that provides comprehensive support and treatment for individuals struggling with substance abuse.

This tailored approach often incorporates medication to reduce cravings, alongside counseling to address emotional and behavioral challenges related to addiction. MAT proves to be an effective method for helping individuals overcome addiction and achieve a healthier, substance-free life. With unwavering support from the treatment team and unwavering commitment, recovery becomes attainable.

Treating Co-Occurring Disorders

Sometimes those suffering from alcohol or drug addiction are also dealing with another mental health disorder, like anxiety or depression. When someone struggles with psychological issues and addiction, they have a co-occurring disorder or dual diagnosis.

Examples of co-occurring disorders that we see frequently in our Colorado drug rehab center are:

If you have co-occurring disorders, both disorders must be treated, as each disorder often reinforces the other, so ignoring one can make it harder to address the other. At our Denver, Colorado addiction treatment location, the clinical and support staff will work with you to ensure your co-occurring disorders are explained and treated.

Professional & Compassionate Leadership

Our team at Footprints to Recovery in Colorado consists of licensed psychologists, master’s level clinicians, and wellness experts focused on helping individuals overcome addiction. We partner with program participants to identify the best therapeutic methods to address a client’s drug and alcohol abuse, as well as underlying emotional or psychological triggers for the destructive behavior.

Jenna Richer received her Master’s degree in Social Work (MSW) in 2002 from Smith College School for Social Work in Northampton, Massachusetts, and became a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) in 2007. A native of Los Angeles, California, Jenna’s clinical experience includes working with individuals experiencing homelessness, severe and persistent mental illness, and co-occurring substance use disorders. Jenna created and managed several intensive, field-based programs providing 24/7 services to these individuals through the LA County Department of Mental Health (DMH) and Veterans Administration (VA), using the “Housing First” and harm-reduction models.

After moving to Denver, Colorado in 2015, Jenna brought her experience with, knowledge of, and passion for homelessness, mental health, and addiction to the Colorado Office of Behavioral Health (OBH), where she worked with the state securing SAMHSA grants for providers of mental health, co-occurring, and housing services.
