program overview at a group therapy programOpioid 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. For more information about our medication-assisted approach to treating opioid addiction, contact Colorado Medication Assisted Recovery today at 833.448.0127.

Program Overview

The first step to treatment is contacting Colorado Medication Assisted Recovery. Once you’ve reached out, we can answer any questions you may have and help you feel more comfortable about our program. Then, we will finish your initial screening to determine whether our treatment program can address your needs. Our treatment program addresses opioid dependence or addiction, other addictions, and mental health conditions. Once we’ve finished your screening and verified your insurance, we’ll invite you in for your initial appointment.

Initial Appointment

At your first appointment, we’ll finish assessing your needs and determine what treatment to include. We’ll work with you to decide how long you need to receive treatment, or we can determine that on a later date, whichever makes you most comfortable. Then, we’ll schedule the date for induction and the timing. Then, we will tell you what to do before you start treatment and answer any questions that you may have. We’ll also give you a schedule for your twice-a-week group therapy appointment.

Induction

On the first day of induction, we’ll give you a urinalysis test and begin induction. This part of the process may take up to 4 hours. However, for some, it can be as short as 90 minutes. The induction room is comfortable, quiet, and we sterilize it daily. We provide medications to ensure that you’re comfortable throughout the process.

After your induction, we’ll schedule your individual therapy, medical check-ins, prescription refills, and other aspects of care. We’ll work around your schedule so you can manage your responsibilities and get the comprehensive care you need to stay in recovery.

Next Steps

After you’ve had your induction, we’ll invite you in a few times a week. At these appointments, you’ll check in with our clinical team, take urinalysis tests, receive medical support, and attend therapy and case management sessions. Based on your progress, you won’t have to come in as frequently, as long as you continue to take your medications. However, you, your therapist, and your medical provider will determine when you’re finished with treatment.
