“It took me a long time to realize that I’m not starting from scratch, I’m starting with experience! In the grips of addiction I thought life was terrible and I couldn’t see a way out. Now in long-term recovery I realize that life if beautiful and that there are just moments in time that are challenging but those moments give me the strength to keep moving forward.” Anonymous Alum

Addiction Treatment Programs Near Denver, CO
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
When you join a PHP or partial care program, you’ll attend lectures and therapy on five days per week for six hours each day. At the end of the day, you’ll go home to your own bed. This Colorado drug & alcohol treatment program is considered the middle phase between inpatient and outpatient treatment. It may be right for you if you need structured addiction treatment without 24-hour supervision.
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
Footprints to Recovery’s IOP is geared toward those who have safely detoxed from drugs or alcohol and still need addiction therapy while transitioning back into everyday life and the stresses and responsibilities that come along with it. This program provides the flexibility to attend treatment during the day or in the evenings. In total, treatment is for 9 to 15 hours per week.
Outpatient Program (OP)
Our outpatient drug and alcohol rehab near Denver provides the ultimate flexibility in addiction treatment.
You’ll have treatment programming for one to two days per week for three hours per day. This level of care allows you to maintain a normal work and family schedule while continuing to engage in the recovery process. At our Colorado drug rehab center, you’ll find a place to work through life problems in groups and with your therapist without turning to addictive drugs or alcohol.
Medical Detoxification/ Medically Managed Withdrawal
Medical detox is a crucial first step in the recovery process for most people who are physically dependent on drugs or alcohol. Medically supervised withdrawal ensures that you stay safe as you come off the substances to which you’re addicted. This level of care also decreases the amount of discomfort you may experience as you stop. SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) has a tool for finding Colorado medical detox near you. Find it here.
Inpatient/Residential Treatment Program (IP)
Inpatient (or residential) treatment is the level of care suited for those who need full-time treatment. It usually happens after medical detox and can range from days to weeks. Those in inpatient treatment attend lectures and therapy sessions, and interact with and learn from people going through the same things.
If inpatient is the right next step for you, we can help you find a program. SAMHSA also has a tool for finding Colorado inpatient programs near you. Find it here.
Therapies/Treatment Modalities Near Denver, CO
Successful addiction treatment requires individualized treatment approaches. Our Denver drug rehab location offers a wide array of therapies to help you overcome addiction and remain sober:
Individual therapy allows you to work one-on-one with a licensed therapist to change thought patterns that have contributed to your substance use in past. You’ll also learn how to handle life’s problems and stresses without the use of drugs or alcohol.
In group therapy, you come together with others who have suffered from drug or alcohol addiction, with the help of a therapist. Each member can work through stumbling blocks in their life and in the recovery process. Group therapy provides a place where people with shared experiences can relate to and support one another.
Family therapy is a process to address dysfunctional family relationships and patterns of interaction that contribute to substance abuse issues. Both the addicted individual and their family work through these problems under the guidance of a trained therapist.
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.
At Footprints to Recovery near Denver, you can also expect:
- Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)

Treating Co-Occurring Disorders
Sometimes those suffering from alcohol or drug addiction are also dealing with another psychological disorder, like anxiety or depression. When another psychological disorder accompanies drug addiction, it is called a co-occurring disorder or dual diagnosis.
Examples of co-occurring disorder that we see frequently in our Colorado drug rehab center are:
- Substance abuse and stress generally
- Alcohol use and bipolar disorder
- Benzodiazepines and anxiety
- Alcohol use and depression
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.
Support Groups in Denver, CO
Support groups can be an indispensable part of addiction recovery because recovery is a long journey filled with ups and downs. Support groups are a collection of individuals who are in varying stages of recovery; they are your peers. Getting diverse perspectives from people who know what you’re going through can be the difference between remaining sober and relapsing.
There are many Denver support groups readily available, including but not limited to:
- Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) – Use this link to find AA meeting times and locations in the Denver area.
