In October 2015, the Glenwood Springs Post Independent published an eye-opening story about heroin use in Garfield County. The news that the US heroin epidemic has finally reached this part of Colorado is sobering, or should be.

You are not alone
The Center for Disease Control, or CDC, states that drug addiction in the United States has more than doubled in recent years, and a big part of the exponential rise is due to legal prescription pain medications. Drugs such as Oxycontin and Vicodin contain some of the same substances found in street heroin, and they can be just as addictive.

Knowing When to Travel for Treatment
If you or a loved one is searching for a drug and alcohol rehab center in Glenwood Springs, one of the key decisions you will need to make is where you want to go to rehab geographically. In other words, do you want to stay in your hometown or travel for treatment?
Many of the treatment programs that can be found in other cities offer amenities that you may not find in your home area. For example, some hotel-like features that are more high-end are often in bigger facilities in rural areas. With a holistic approach to recovery, these facilities have yoga classes, specialty meal options, comfortable living arrangements and more. They cater to those who value and are able to pay for such amenities. For those who are looking for more affordable options, outpatient rehabs or those located within city limits may make more sense.
To start your journey toward sobriety, give us a call so that we can help with this critical decision. We have experienced and informative service representatives standing by to help you navigate your options.
