A Multi-Staged, Integrated Approach to Recovery
At CuraWest we take a multi-staged approach to recovery, providing clients with a safe, pain-free detox and a smooth transition into residential treatment. Each level of care is provided in the same homestyle retreat facility, located in the heart of Denver, Colorado. Not only is the Denver area rich in recovery-related services and resources, but the beautiful natural environment is conducive to comprehensive healing. We incorporate many of the recreational opportunities Denver has to offer into our curriculum of care, allowing clients the chance to play and explore as they learn how to have fun and build healthy, functional friendships in sobriety.
What do we mean by an “integrated” approach to addiction recovery? At CuraWest, we focus on healing the mind, body, and spirit simultaneously. We take a “whole person” approach — rather than focus the majority of our attention on therapeutic care, we combine proven therapies with holistic treatment methods, peer support groups, and ongoing spiritual development. Our goal is to provide each individual client with the resources they need to successfully rebuild their lives, while settling into a new sober lifestyle and discovering peace, joy, and fulfillment. If you or someone close to you has been suffering from a drug or alcohol addiction of any kind, we are available to help. today to learn more about our integrated treatment program in Denver, Colorado or to get started on your own personal journey of addiction recovery.
Two Effective Levels of Clinical Care
Each individual will progress through addiction treatment at a different rate. A person who has been struggling with a mild substance use disorder and no underlying conditions might benefit from a one-week stay in inpatient treatment, whereas a person who has been suffering from a severe addiction and a diagnosed mental illness might benefit more from a three-week stay. What has been repeatedly proven, however, is that positive treatment outcomes are entirely contingent upon adequate treatment length. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse and Principles of Drug Addiction Treatment: A Research-Based Guide (Third Edition), “Generally, for residential or outpatient treatment, participation for less than 90 days is of limited effectiveness, and treatment lasting significantly longer is recommended for maintaining positive outcomes.” If a client chooses to take advantage of both levels of care we provide and if they closely follow their personalized plan for continuing care, they will be engaged in treatment for well over 90 days. Benefits of completing our full program include:
- Reducing the risk of relapse significantly by immediately transitioning from medical detox into residential inpatient treatment.
- The ability to continue working with the assigned case manager and individual therapist, which allows for a more thorough processing of underlying issues and contributing factors.
- Continued medical treatment of post-acute withdrawal symptoms if they should arise, and around-the-clock access to professional medical care during every stage of the treatment process.
- Improved treatment outcomes based on the length of time spent in treatment and the ongoing development of relapse prevention techniques.
In many instances, a person will complete medical detox at one facility and transition into a different facility once they have been physically stabilized. Motivation can be lost during this transition, and a fair amount of individuals never make it to the next appropriate level of care. At CuraWest we have successfully eliminated this risk. Clients have access to the support they need during the most vulnerable time in their journeys of recovery. Contact us today to learn more about the level of care we offer and how to get started.
