Our Mission

CMAR’s mission is to empower its patients to achieve comprehensive recovery, through recovery-oriented MAT care.

Choosing to get help for opioid addiction is hard, but necessary for anyone suffering from opioid dependence. Whether this is your first time seeking addiction treatment or you have already gone through treatment programs in the past, we can help. At Colorado Medication Assisted Recovery, we focus on long-term recovery, because recovery is more than just a pill, it is a lifelong commitment.

At CMAR, we offer an outpatient opioid addiction treatment program in Thornton, CO. Along with treating opioid addiction with a scientific, medication-assisted approach, we treat co-occurring mental health conditions, such as depression, anxiety and more complex conditions as well.

About Colorado Medication Assisted Recovery

about colorado medication assisted recoveryAt Colorado Medication Assisted Recovery, we specialize in local and affordable outpatient care for adults suffering from opioid addiction. We use innovative and integrated care models which are fueled by evidenced-based practice. We combine both behavioral and physical healthcare services, along with peer-support, into a single program to address the entire needs of a person. Our model of care combines a wide range of approaches, including:

  • Clinical services including individual, group, and family counseling
  • An MAT program using buprenorphine and naloxone medications
  • Behavioral health, mental health and psychiatric assessments and ongoing psychological services
  • Recovery support services
  • Family and patient education services

As opposed to residential or inpatient treatment modalities where an individual lives at a rehabilitation center for weeks or months, CMAR’s approach is based in the patient’s community. This allows the patient to live at home and continue lifestyle responsibilities, such as work or caring for a family. Colorado Medication Assisted Recovery is the only program of our kind in the Colorado area. We offer a private, clinically-driven medication-assisted treatment program to people who are trying to break free from opioid addiction.

Our program is specially designed for those struggling with an addiction to heroin, fentanyl, or any other type of opioid, our program. Unlike other programs, you do not need to leave your home for days, weeks, or months at a time. Instead, you don’t have to leave at all, using our remote program that fits into your schedule. With our treatment programs, long-term sobriety is possible.


Types of Opioid Treatments

When you’re looking for opioid addiction treatment, there are four types, including:

Office-Based Opioid Treatment (OBOT)

Our office-based opioid treatment, otherwise known as OBOT, offers FDA-approved medications to treat opioid use. These programs use buprenorphine, naltrexone, and/or buprenorphine/naloxone to address opioid use disorders. They can prescribe buprenorphine/naloxone and buprenorphine to be administered on-site or as take-home prescriptions. However, most administer naltrexone clinically once a month. While this last medication is available commercially, we do not recommend it for our office-based outpatient treatment program.

Unlike traditional outpatient treatments, behavioral health and psychological treatments aren’t required for a program to offer office-based opioid treatment. However, most do make it available at your request. These programs also have links within the community with resources such as behavioral health treatments, job training, and medical staff.

Opioid Treatment Programs (OTP)

Opioid treatment programs generally include regulated methadone clinics, which also offer admittance to alternative medication-assisted treatment options. Today, the FDA has approved three individual medications that can treat opioid addiction: naltrexone, buprenorphine, and methadone. Non-opioid treatment programs, such as medical clinics, can provide naltrexone and buprenorphine. However, opioid treatment programs are the only locations that can dispense methadone for opioid addiction treatment. Due to the expansion of medication-assisted treatment options, more clinics can offer these medicines.


For many people, recovery cannot begin before detox. Facilities that provide medical detox are staffed with doctors and nurses, who can help patients manage withdrawal symptoms. Without medication, these symptoms can be challenging, dangerous, or life-threatening. However, at a medical detox facility, you can withdraw from substances in some comfort. These facilities provide safety and medications, decreasing the danger of this intense period.

Rehab, Residential Treatment, or Inpatient Treatment

Residential rehab or rehabilitation is an addiction treatment program that you would live at 24/7 during treatment. You can enroll in a short term treatment program, meaning 30 days or less, or long term treatment, involving more than 30 days. Your treatment length depends on the duration, frequency, and type of addiction. Other factors, such as dual diagnosis or mental health conditions, can also affect how long your treatment will last as well.
