How to Choose the Best Rehab in Colorado for You?

If you or a loved one has an addiction to drugs or alcohol and you’re ready to make a change, you or they might consider entering rehab. Rehabs in Colorado provide treatments like medically-supervised detox and 12-step to treat every level of addiction. 

Before choosing a rehab, decide on your ultimate goal for starting this process. Think of your plan in the short term. Are you looking to curb negative behaviors caused by addiction in the first few months? Are you looking to avoid withdrawal and relapse? Knowing your goals upfront can help you pinpoint the treatment style that best addresses your addiction. 

At first, choosing a rehab in Colorado can feel overwhelming, but asking the right questions helps narrow your choices. Some things to ask include: 

Lastly, check their accreditations. Reputable rehabs have accreditations from The Joint Commission or the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). Both are non-profit organizations that offer accreditations to rehabs with a proven track record of positive results and high standards. They might also hold a state license to operate in Colorado.

What is the Typical Cost of Rehab in Colorado?

The cost of rehab varies based on your individual needs and a wide array of factors, including location and length of time you need to spend in rehab.

Rehabs in big cities and those with luxury amenities can be more expensive than rehabs in rural areas. Rehab programs that include medication-assisted detox may also cost more. Other factors that influence the price of rehab are the length of stay, therapy type, and the level of treatment.

According to Drug Abuse Statistics, Colorado’s average drug rehab cost is $1705 for outpatient treatment and $56,413 for inpatient treatment.

If you have health insurance, the only out-of-pocket cost will be your deductible and/or coinsurance.

You may not have any out-of-pocket costs if you have public healthcare such as Medicaid and Medicare. However, it’s best to contact your insurance company directly or Zinnia Health for insurance verification. We’ll help you find out what costs you may be responsible for.


What is the Rehab Hotline to Call for Colorado?

To learn how Zinnia Health can help you safely recover from drug and alcohol addiction, contact us at (855) 430-9439. Our specialists are happy to answer any questions about our Colorado facility.

Can You Detox in Colorado?

Yes. At Zinnia Health Denver, our recovery center offers safe medical detox. In this program, those with strong addictions receive medication to reduce and prevent symptoms of drug and alcohol withdrawal. Our patients are medically supervised and given medication by medically-trained staff members throughout their treatment.

Is Detox the Same as Rehab?

No. Although detox is a treatment program offered at drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers, detox and rehab are different.

Detox allows the addictive substance to exit your system under supervision. During detox, some patients require psychological support, while others require medication. Medications provided during detox help manage withdrawal symptoms and treat co-occurring disorders.

When abruptly quitting opioids or alcohol, some people experience acute withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms are almost always severe and require prompt medical intervention to prevent irreversible damage or death.

These symptoms include:

  • Delirium
  • Agitation
  • High blood pressure
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety
  • Gastrointestinal upset
  • Headache
  • Health palpitations
  • Seizure

According to the National Library of Medicine, a person with a heavy addiction to alcohol can experience these symptoms within a few hours of quitting.

People at risk of developing serious withdrawal symptoms require detox before beginning rehab.

Rehab provides addiction treatment options in an inpatient, outpatient, and intensive outpatient (IOP) setting — and some locations offer all three.

The patient will live in a shared or private room in an inpatient residential program. Outpatient treatment requires the patient to attend daily or weekly meetings. However, they are not required to stay on-site. The type of therapy received during outpatient treatment depends on their individualized treatment plan.

Rehab treatment modalities are evidence-based and work to stop drug-seeking behavior and addiction. Successful rehabs provide a combination of behavioral treatments, group therapies, medication-assisted detox, and dual diagnosis programs. In addition, according to Ohio University, some people benefit from rehabs offering alternative therapies like mindfulness meditation and yoga.

How Long Does a Typical Stay at a Detox Center In Colorado Last?

The length of stay depends on many factors, not limited to:

  • The type of drug used
  • The amount of time abused
  • Unhealthy behaviors associated with the addiction

If you or a loved one are ordered to involuntary placement, the time in detox will differ. Involuntary placement, also called Substance Use Commitment, is a court-appointed detox where the time required for your stay in rehab is up to the judge. However, according to Colorado Behavioral Health Administration, the average stay is 7 to 14 days.

Are There Emergency Detox Centers in Colorado?

Yes, Colorado has both 24-hour detox centers and same-day detox centers. Zinnia Health can help you locate an emergency detox center near you.

Call (855) 430-9439 and provide your location for assistance.

Are There Any Free Detox Centers in Colorado?

Most insurance plans cover detox for drug and alcohol addiction with no out-of-pocket costs. However, if your detox is court appointed, the State of Colorado may cover the fee if your cannot.
