Research clearly shows that structure is a necessary aspect of any successful recovery process, particularly that of opioid addiction. Residential treatment provides structure by implementing fully regimented schedules for each patient. In a 12 step program, the steps and meetings are clearly outlined and structured. Yet in typical opioid treatment programs, accessed by around 90% of opioid addicts in Colorado, there is no regiment beyond medication schedules.
Addiction Treatment Therapies
In opioid treatment, individual therapy & group therapy are commonly optional; support groups are optional, the “integration” of services as a whole is completely optional. This winds up putting the needs to decrease barriers to treatment access ahead of the quality of treatment itself. Why? Because these providers are predominantly driven by one of two things: revenue or public health. The medical practices want the cash flow of self-pay suboxone patients, and clinics want to provide the public health benefits of getting people off of street drugs and IV use.
The Importance of Community
At CMAR, we know that the only way to help someone achieve lasting, sustainable recovery from addiction is to commit to structure, accept support, and participate in the community. That’s why CMAR is Colorado’s only OBH licensed opioid recovery program that’s licensed as an outpatient addiction treatment program. Our intensive outpatient and outpatient groups, individual and family therapy services are part of treatment here. The only optional elements are our medical and pharmacy services.
