One of the biggest challenges we face in combating the opioid epidemic…is the fractured state of opioid treatment services.
Getting clean from opioid addiction can be complicated.
To fully recover, one must see a doctor for assessments, a pharmacy for treatment medications, a therapist for counseling, and (hopefully) find friends/mentors for guidance and accountability.
With such a “siloed” system, there are more opportunities to fail than there are to succeed.
All the while, an average of more than 5 Coloradan’s a day die from an overdose, and many wonder, “Why?”
There are myriad and complex reasons why opioids kill so many people despite improvements to treatment, but one reason is clear…
Few opioid addicts can achieve lasting recovery when care is so disparate, and accountability is rarely more than a monthly urinalysis.
Unless people can access structured, comprehensive, and accountable care, their ability to achieve lasting recovery is extremely low.
If a doctor, pharmacy, therapy program, case manager, and peer support were in one place, there wouldn’t be any cracks to slip through.
Well, that’s exactly what Colorado Medication Assisted Recovery (CMAR) has done…
CMAR offers addiction-medicine, medications, therapy (individual, group, and family), and peer-support all in a single location.
CMAR even offers a full-service, remote treatment option.
