After an investigation that lasted an entire year, 14 people were recently arrested in relation to drug activity. There were an additional 5 suspects as well. Among the paraphernalia that was found, law enforcement officials found explosives, firearms and drugs of various forms in the home. Two of the men arrested face federal charges.
Drug problems like this are common in Aurora, and that’s why it’s so important to stay out of the mess and focus on recovery at a quality rehab center if you need to.
The Role That Friends and Family Play in Recovery
If you are a close friend or family member of someone who is abusing or addicted to drugs, remember that you have a large role to play in the recovery of your loved one. Specifically, you can help in the following ways.
- Not Enabling - First of all, you can refuse to enable this individual. Stop being an open faucet for money and care.
- Be Supportive - You certainly don’t want to enable your loved one, but you also don’t want to be too harsh on them. Remain supportive in order to help them get help.
- Offer Real Help - In addition, make sure that you don’t just say you’ll be of help. Really try to be of real service to that person by taking them to a rehab center or helping them make that first call.
- Love Them - This goes along with being supportive. You can tell your loved one the truth and explain your concern, but never stop loving them either. They need that love right now.

Your Rehab Experience Should Be Private
Admitting that you have an addiction problem is the first step toward recovery and lifelong sobriety, but it can be a difficult one to make. Your next step will be choosing a rehab center that is right for you. Attending drug or alcohol rehabilitation is a highly private situation that should be treated with the utmost confidentiality.
Those who are particularly worried about how confidential and private their treatment program will be may want to consider traveling out of town in order to seek treatment. In many cases, you might not need to travel very far to find a secluded enough location where you feel comfortable addressing your addiction problem.
On the other hand, outpatient treatment centers may need to be chosen based on how close they are to where you live. Because you'll be coming and going, having a nearby location for treatment will enable you to continue on with your life as usual. Our toll free hotline has representative standing by who can help you with this critical decision and let you know about local or distant rehab centers that will fit your needs.
