Colorado drug abuse overview

Colorado has a population of 5,812,069 people. The most recent data from the 2021 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) found that 1,157,000 people over the age of 12 had abused illegal substances in the past month, around 19.91% of the population. 1,078,000 reported marijuana use in the past month and 1,396,000 in the past year. The report also found that 122,000 Colorado residents had abused cocaine in the past year, 79,000 had abused meth, and 195,000 had abused prescription pain medication. 34,000 people over the age of 18 reported using heroin in the last year. Those reporting opioid misuse including heroin, painkillers, and fentanyl in Colorado totaled 193,000 people.

Substance abuse in Colorado

Colorado exhibits higher rates of substance use disorder than the US, with 9.09% for the 12-17 age group, exceeding the U.S. average of 6.78%. The adult prevalence in Colorado is 10.58%, substantially above the national figure of 8.77%.

Substance misuse

Colorado has a substance misuse rate of 10.68% for teenagers in the 12 to 17 age group and 21.15% for adults over 18. By comparison, the total U.S. averages are considerably lower for both categories, reaching 7.09% in the 12-17 group and 15.03% in the 18+ age range.

Marijuana misuse

The marijuana misuse rate in the total US is 10.47% for the 12-17 age group and 19.59% for the adult population. Colorado sees a high uptick in marijuana use cases in the 12-17 group, with 17.52% of adolescents using marijuana. The 18+ category also sees markedly higher consumption rates than the national average, at 25.41%.

Cocaine misuse

Cocaine misuse in Colorado is more than double in the 12-17 age group at 0.36% compared to the national average of 0.15%. The national cocaine average use rate is 1.86% in the over-18 population, slightly below Colorado’s rate of 1.95%.

Heroin misuse

Heroin misuse is not quantified in the 12-17 age range in the US and Colorado, showing a very low consumption rate. In the 18+ category, the national average is 0.43%, whereas Colorado heroin consumption is much lower at 0.27%. The 18-25 age group sees a 0.20% heroin use rate in the US, but lower at 0.17% in Colorado.

Methamphetamine misuse

Methamphetamine misuse is 0.14% across the US for the 12-17 age group and 0.99% for adults over 18. In Colorado, the percentage is higher in the 12-17 category, at 0.17%, but lower in the 18+ category, at 0.94%.

Prescription meds and opioid misuse

Colorado’s prescription med consumption rate is 2.24% for the 12-17 age range, 1.17 higher than the 1.91% national average. Opioid consumption rates are the same both across the US and in Colorado.

The 18+ category sees a lower consumption rate of 2.98% for both prescription meds and opioids. However, the national average is 3.24% for prescription drugs and 3.44% for opioids in this age group.

Colorado and alcohol abuse

Alcohol misuse was also reported in Colorado with 2,900,000 people over the age of 12 saying they had used alcohol in the last month and 1,313,000 reporting binge drinking. The perceived risk of people over 12 years of age indulging in problematic alcohol use (5 or more drinks twice a week) in a month was 2,399,000 people.

Colorado overdose deaths

In 2021, Colorado saw a total of 1715 recorded drug-related overdose deaths. This includes those that were accidental or unidentifiable but excludes those that were related to suicide or homicide. This puts the overdose death toll in Colorado at 29.5 people per 100,000. The total number of alcohol-related deaths (including overdose and all other causes) was 1695 or 29.1 per 100,000 people.

Colorado substance use disrorders

The NSDUH report recorded the total amount of substance abuse disorders in Colorado and those who currently require treatment. The report found that 1,087,000 were recorded as having a substance use disorder (SUD) and 713,000 had an alcohol use disorder. 109,000 people were recorded as having an opioid use disorder including those with painkiller, heroin, and other opioid-based drug use disorders.

Colorado addiction treatment

There are many who have been diagnosed with or reported a substance, illicit drug, or alcohol use disorder that require rehab treatment and are not receiving it. The report found that 535 people in Colorado needed treatment for illicit substance abuse, 701,000 required treatment for an alcohol use disorder, and 1,022,000 needed treatment for a diagnosed substance use disorder.

Colorado addiction statistics

  • In Colorado the percent of treatment admissions for methamphetamines has doubled from 3% in 2012 to 6% in 2016 and substantially increased for heroin from 4% in 2012 to 7% in 2016
  • Fentanyl-related death rates per 100,000 people more than quadrupled in Colorado since 2016
  • According to an article by NPR, crystal meth was involved in nearly 300 overdose deaths in Colorado in 2018

How should I choose a rehab center in Colorado?

Not all rehab centers in Colorado offer the same services or cater to the same needs. Considering the factors below will help you make a better decision according to your needs.

  • Check the accreditation documents to ensure the facility adheres to high treatment standards.
  • Verify whether the clinic or rehab center offers treatment programs for your specific substance use disorders. 
  • Inquire about inpatient or outpatient services that may suit the severity of your addiction.
  • Assess the variety of therapies provided, such as individual counseling or group sessions, and any additional amenities that support recovery.
  • Check the qualifications and experience of the facility’s staff in addiction treatment.
  • Explore aftercare options, which you may need to sustain long-term recovery.
  • Consider the costs and whether they fit into your insurance coverage or budget.
  • Consider the center’s approach to outdoor and adventure therapy, which leverages Colorado’s natural landscape for healing.

What treatment options are available in Colorado?

Rehabs in Colorado facilitate great client care, providing necessary services from detox support to treatment programs. Knowing the different interventions and programs available will help individuals make an informed decision on which suits their situation best.

  • Inpatient rehab - the most pressing concern at the start of the recovery process is the detox. Depending on the severity, it may sometimes be life-threatening, and should ideally happen under the care of experts. Inpatient rehab will also secure individuals from accessing the triggering substance, thereby preventing a quick relapse and providing a supportive space to recover.
  • Residential treatment – comparable to inpatient care, residential treatment provides a controlled yet more casual environment for recovery. Clients do not require intensive monitoring, but will still receive guidance and treatment during their stay. This setting is can be likened to a retreat.
  • Outpatient treatment – outpatient rehab grants clients more freedom, but also more personal responsibility regarding recovery. Individuals have more control over their rehab schedules and are trusted to honor these commitments for their rehabilitation.
  • Gender-specific treatment – this type of treatment gives care providers a more concrete intervention plan, as it recognizes the different experiences and motivations of people from different genders.
  • Age-specific program – this is specifically for teenagers and adolescents suffering from addiction, with interventions that are appropriate for the age group.
  • Private rehab – Colorado private rehabs take advantage of the scenic views and add layers of luxury and comfort, with boundaries to uphold a steady and humble setting.

How much does rehab treatment cost in Colorado?

Colorado is the 11th cheapest state in the US in terms of drug treatment.

The average outpatient rehab in Colorado costs $1,705, whereas the national average is $5,700 per 30 days. Outpatient programs range from $1,400 to $10,000 across the US.

Inpatient rehabilitation in Colorado and across the US lasts approximately 28-30 days. The average price for such a program is $12,500, meaning $575 per day. You may also be required to pay an additional $3000-$4000 admission fee.

Residential addiction treatment depends on the severity of your addiction and may vary from 3 weeks to 12 months. The average residential rehab cost in Colorado is $56,413, whereas the price ranges from $5,000 to 80,000 in the US.

Drug and alcohol detox programs reach an average cost of $525 per day, meaning an average of $3,675 for a typical 7-day plan. 

Funding has long been a major obstacle in seeking addiction treatment. Despite any willingness to recover, progress tends to pause when finances come into play.

Private insurance can go a long way in making rehab treatments more affordable. Medicaid is also a viable option for those without private insurance. Although not all treatment centers accept state assistance, many drug and alcohol rehabs in Colorado welcome it.

 Colorado free rehabs are hard to come by due to resource limitations, but many non-profit organizations do give free treatments of varying levels. Most provide outpatient services and limited residential rehab. Meanwhile, support groups are a good way to gain a supportive circle for recovery. AAs are time-tested, free outlets for those who need relatable peers.

Addiction treatment for teens and young people in Colorado

There are a lot of rehab centers that specialize in youth addiction treatment programs, such as those in Denver, Colorado Springs, and Boulder. This kind of age-specific treatment incorporates age-appropriate programs that differ from those applied to adults.

These facilities tend to encourage peer-to-peer interactions, to create a nourishing and esteem-building environment for the teens. Familial connections are highly encouraged here. Clients also receive accredited academic support during their stay.

Are there any specialized treatment options I should consider?

Colorado has different specialized treatment options you may consider. For example, the state offers drug recovery assistance to populations at risk, such as the LGBTQ+ community, women, homeless people, and state prisoners. Youth prevention and treatment options are also available.

Colorado also offers luxury rehab centers, outdoor rehabilitation programs, and art-based therapy. Holistic approaches like acupuncture for withdrawal symptoms and faith-based centers are available as well.

Addiction support groups in Colorado

There are plenty of addiction support groups in most cities in Colorado, normally in more populated locations. These support groups are free and usually headed by an experienced guide or leader, typically licensed counselors. Some support groups only host people currently battling addiction, while others host actively sober individuals. Separate support groups for families of those with addiction are also spread throughout the state.

These groups meet intermittently at a pre-discussed location or via video conference.

Government addiction treatment assistance in Colorado

Beyond Medicaid, the state of Colorado does not currently provide further financial assistance or services for addiction rehabilitation. However, there are federal initiatives that can be benefitted from by Colorado residents.

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Block Grants by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration (SAMHSA) give grants to eligible applicants, to be used towards promoting public health and treating substance abuse.

Colorado does extend assistance and guidance for state employees through the Colorado State Employee Assistance Program (CSEAP) website.

Questions on Finding Treatment in Colorado

Our dedicated team is committed to providing you with informative and supportive answers

How long does rehab treatment take?

The average inpatient treatment program lasts between 30 and 90 days but outpatient and aftercare services may be longer.

How do I pay for rehab treatment?

Rehab facilities accept a wide range of payment options including health insurance, self-funding, grants & scholarships, and Medicaid/Medicare.

How do I choose the right rehab in Colorado?

Speaking to a physician or healthcare expert can help you identify the severity of your substance use disorder and a suitable treatment option. You can then search our directory for a center that best meets your needs.

Can I get mental health treatment during rehab?

Yes, many rehab facilities offer treatment for co-occurring substance use disorder and mental health conditions. The provider will discuss your medical history with you before being admitted to assess if you require dual diagnosis treatment.

What treatment medications are used during rehab?

Substance use disorders may require different medication-assisted treatments depending on the substance being abused and the severity of the addiction. For opioid use disorders, suboxone, buprenorphine, and methadone are often used during detox and aftercare, while those with an alcohol addiction may receive Antabuse.

Can rehabs in Colorado give out my information?

No, The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is a federal law that prevents a patient's private health information from being shared with another party without their consent including patients attending rehab treatment.

What is a rehab like?

All rehab facilities operate differently and treatment settings can alternate what a day-to-day schedule will look like. Read here to find out more about a typical day in rehab.

Does my health insurance cover rehab?

Yes, almost all health insurance providers will cover the cost of substance use disorder and addiction treatment under their plans, as well as other mental health conditions.

How much does rehab cost in Colorado?

Rehab treatment costs can vary greatly; with outpatient detox programs costing around $1,200 and residential inpatient services costing over $10,000. Rehab costs can almost always be covered partially or wholly by health insurance and many centers accept other payment options depending on your circumstances.

When should I seek help for addiction?

There are many indicators that you or a loved one may have a substance problem. Read our guide on the warning signs of addiction for more information or take our self-assessment.

How do I get a loved one to go to rehab?

While it’s good to share your concern for the person's well-being and health, it’s important to understand that they may not be ready or willing to get help. Most of the time, going to rehab needs to be a voluntary choice (unless court-ordered) so you cannot force a loved one into rehab.

What should I bring with me to rehab?

Each rehab center has its own set of rules and policies about contraband items, so check with the facility before you pack your things. There are also some items you may need to bring with you for admission, including a photo ID and a copy of your health insurance card, as well as clothing for several days and hygiene products.

Do I need to go to rehab for detox or can I do it alone?

If you experience signs of withdrawal when you miss a dose or stop abusing a substance, it is important to seek help at an inpatient medical detox center. Certain substances such as alcohol or benzodiazepines also pose additional health risks when use stops and medical supervision is needed to avoid serious complications.

Will I lose my job if I go to rehab?

No, The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) protects individuals who are attending rehab from discrimination in the workplace, meaning you cannot be fired for seeking substance use disorder treatment.

Can I go to rehab if I’m pregnant?

Yes, many rehab facilities specialize in treating expecting mothers; ensuring both mother’s and baby's health are taken care of alongside treatment for substance use disorders.

Are cellphones allowed in rehab?

While you can bring your phone with you to rehab, almost all residential facilities will ask you to hand it over along with other valuables during the admission process.

Can I still work while in rehab?

While going to rehab won’t affect your employment status, almost all facilities do not allow remote working during treatment. This is to ensure patients are free from outside distractions and can focus on healing.

Can I visit someone in rehab?

Yes, though all rehabs will have their own visitation policy and most won’t allow outside visits within the first 14-30 days.

Additional Resources for Addiction and Mental Health Treatment
Paying for Addiction Treatment

Addiction treatment costs vary greatly depending on if it's a luxury rehab center, whether it’s an inpatient or outpatient treatment program, the type of treatment required, and whether the program accepts insurance or is self-pay only. There is a wide range of different options for addiction treatment, and most people can find an option that fits within their budget. While treatment for an addiction can be costly, it is also an important investment in your health, your life, and your future, and one that will likely pay you back for years to come. Most addiction rehabs accept three types of payment options; insurance, financial aid, or financing.

Addiction Treatment Medication

Detoxification can be an arduous process as withdrawal symptoms can be very uncomfortable and for some substances, even life-threatening. Doctors in inpatient and outpatient rehab will sometimes prescribe medication to ease the process of withdrawal, reduce cravings, and support early addiction recovery efforts.

Drug and Alcohol Detox

Often referred to as 'the cleanse', detoxing from drugs and alcohol can be dangerous, causing both physical and psychological stress and discomfort. Depending on the substance you are detoxing from and how much and how often you used it, you may benefit from a medically supervised detox. Most times, this is provided in an inpatient treatment facility and the aim is to help keep you comfortable while the drug leaves your system.

Inpatient And Residential Rehab

Attending an inpatient addiction treatment rehab center provides those suffering from addiction with a safe, structured, drug-free environment where they can begin the process of recovery.

Outpatient Rehab

Outpatient rehab and treatment can be a good choice for people who are ready to get help with a substance use disorder, are not in the severe stage of addiction, and who need the flexibility that an outpatient program can offer.

Alcohol, Substance Abuse, and Co-Occurring Disorders

Over half of people who suffer from a mental illness disorder or a substance abuse problem will have the other at some point in their lives.

Helping a Family Member or Friend

If someone you know and care about, be they a friend, coworker, or family member is suffering from an alcohol or drug abuse problem it can be hard to know what to do or how you can help. Not only can their behavior have a negative impact on your life as well as theirs, but it may also be difficult to confront them about their problem. Ultimately, whether someone decides to get help with an alcohol or drug abuse problem is up to them but being able to support and talk to someone about their problem may give them the incentive they need to seek help. Still, confronting them the wrong way can make them defensive and less likely to listen or be receptive to what you have to say. This article will provide some tips on what to do and say (and what to avoid doing or saying) to someone who is struggling with an addiction.

Support Groups

In addition to rehab, detox, professional therapy, and prescription medication, people with addictions frequently turn to each other, seeking emotional support, accountability, techniques for managing urges, and sober communities. Mutual aid fellowships, such as the 12-step programs pioneered by Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and secular alternatives, offer free, community-based, confidential meetings to help people reach recovery and stay on the right path.

Addiction and Mental Health

Substance abuse disorders and mental health conditions frequently co-exist, as people turn to addictive substances to self-medicate, and those substances cause and aggravate existing mental health symptoms. Substance abuse and mental health disorders may also share the same underlying causes, including genetics and early trauma.

Therapy For Addiction

Typical psychosocial therapies that are used for addiction include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing (MI), and contingency management (CM). These may be augmented by other types of therapy, including pharmacological therapy and holistic therapies.

Relapse Prevention
