Opioid abuse has been increasing since the late 1980s and early 1990s. Doctors prescribe opioids to their patients, and patients quickly find that the intended dose does not have the same strength as it once did. As a result, they find themselves taking more, which can lead to addiction. Once a patient runs out of their prescription or is unable to get pills from their doctor, they may turn to heroin or illicit opiates to get their fix. This of course, is not the only way that people fall into opiate addiction, but it is increasingly the most common. However someone finds themselves addicted to opioids, CMAR is here to help.
At Colorado Medication Assisted Recovery’s addiction treatment center in Thornton, CO, we offer an outpatient addiction treatment program for opioid addiction, but it’s much more than just “opioid treatment”. We are an opioid recovery program, that takes a “whole person” approach to the opioid treatment process. Patients at CMAR not only get off of addictive pain killers and other opiates but other drugs like alcohol, benzo’s, and stimulants (like amphetamines, cocaine, or meth) as well. Moreover, patients at CMAR recover from their addictions while also recovering from trauma, mental health disorders and psychiatric conditions.
