Aurora, Colorado, is known for its diversity, not in the least because it spans at least three counties. It is also a highly populated city and has a large student population. The city is known for being warm and inviting, which contributes to its yearly growth. However, there is also a serious problem with substance abuse and addiction.

There are many people who require help in fighting their drug or alcohol addiction. Luckily, the city acknowledges this and has put numerous intervention systems in place to ensure that people can seek the help they need. That being said, there is also a recognition that more efforts need to be exerted.

Aurora's Drug and Alcohol Problem

One of the reasons why there is a serious issue with drug and alcohol abuse in the city is because of the new marijuana laws. However, this is not the only issue, and the latest reports show that:

  • 244 children younger than 10 required hospital admission due to exposure to cannabis.
  • 47 pediatric visits per year are a result of marijuana exposure.
  • 60% of those who are incarcerated are addicted to drugs and/or alcohol.
  • Aurora is one of the state's worst cities in terms of overdoses, and this trend is increasing.
  • In Aurora, more people died as a result of overdoses than motor vehicle accidents.

Aurora Treatment Methods

There have been some significant reforms on how treatment is delivered in Aurora in order to address the statistics above. One is to ensure that detox and rehab facilities take a more varied approach to how they work with their patients, offering tailored and individualized plans. As such, available treatment includes:

  • Group therapy
  • Individual counseling sessions
  • Drug detox
  • Physical fitness
  • Nutritional therapy
  • Activities and events

Aurora's Different Types of Addiction

A lot of people continue to think that they have to go to a specialty clinic that focuses specifically on the addiction that they have. While there certainly are centers that work solely with one type of addiction, the vast majority are happy to assist those with any type of addiction, whether it is alcohol, crystal meth, prescription painkillers, cannabis, crack cocaine, or heroin.

Some people continue to believe that they do not require any form of professional help to deal with their addiction. However, it is very rare for someone to be able to live a life of sobriety without at least some counseling and exposure to peers. That said, not everybody has to go to a 90-day inpatient residential facility either. Aurora is home to a number of high quality outpatient rehab centers, which are more convenient for those with mild addictions or personal, professional, or educational responsibilities that they cannot leave behind. However, in almost all cases, a period of medically assisted detox will be required. With some substances, including alcohol, detoxing can be very dangerous, even fatal, which is why it should never be tried without professional help. Managing withdrawal symptoms in a supportive environment with medical help makes it far more likely to be successful - and safer.
