Denver Health Community Detox is an alcohol and drug addiction treatment facility that is located at 1155 Cherokee Street in Denver, Colorado. Treating substance abuse involves multiple stages of treatment through a recovery program such as that offered by Denver Health Community Detox. This can include group counseling, individual counseling, outpatient treatment, inpatient treatment, and medically assisted detox, among many others. Treatment programs are based on the individual themselves and are constructed to suit each patient individually. Just as every person is unique, so should treatment programs and that is exactly what patients will receive at Denver Health Community Detox.

If addicts do not obtain the right type of support and guidance, they may find treatment to be very difficult as the thought of sobriety can seem so far-fetched. At Denver Health Community Detox, professional counseling and guidance are provided to all patients aged 18+, giving them the strength needed in order to obtain a life that is free of drug and alcohol addiction. By altering the patient's outlook on life through addiction treatment, they will be able to stay positive throughout the duration of rehab.

The staff members at Denver Health Community Detox have a mission and that is to give patients effective and quality addiction treatment so that long-lasting sobriety can be obtained. The path to a positive future starts on a positive foot and that begins at Denver Health Community Detox. Confronting addiction is a difficult thing to do, but it is the most important step in the recovery process. Through professional counseling during the patient's time in treatment, patients will learn coping skills and trigger management which is imperative to the success of maintaining sobriety.

Maintaining sobriety on one's own is extremely difficult, especially when the addict has tried to go 'cold turkey' on their own. This is because it requires medically-assisted detox in order to properly and safely wean the body off of the substance of abuse. This way the body does not go through sudden withdrawal nor experience harsh side effects. Denver Health Community Detox can provide patients with all of the necessary tools, treatments, and resources so that patients have every opportunity to succeed in recovery.

Getting treatment is the best option when seeking a life that is free of substance abuse. Get the help required now and start living the best life possible. Contact Denver Health Community Detox by visiting now.

I was in the TRT program, and I loved it! I was of course scared and nervous to get help and to be in the detox. But as soon as I was transitioned into TRT, it became a second home. Lori is an amazing counselor and Alisha is super amazing also! The staff in general are all amazing! They really care and really want you to succeed and even after graduating there, i still go to therapy twice a week and I am now part of the NA committee on Monday nights! This place has forever changed my life and I am forever grateful!

Our friend was picked up overnight at 7/11 by a Denver Police officer after an altercation about payment methods for a taquito and dropped off here unreported. The staff took great care of him and other residents were kind to him as well. We didn’t know where he was or how to contact him and in danger of missing our flights back to Canada. Typically residents may not call out, but the staffs consideration of his situation allowed him to make one phone call to us. We picked him up and made it to the airport just in time to make it home. He was offered breakfast but was unable to stay. Their care and compassion for our friend and our situation will never be forgotten.

Life Saving Treatment Program. The staff are hardworking people that really care about their clients. Highly recommend the TRT program for women and men that are serious about recovery from substance dependency and abuse. Thank you for everything I've gotten from this program, Denver Cares. Plus the life long friendships, I have made.

Denver Cares Staff has treated me with the utmost kindness, respect, and help with addiction. For the drunk dramatic outbursts that the staff endure and have to protect themselves and those seeking help from harm, I am sorry you think a place with such wonderful human beings running and serving the community are torturing drunks. I hope you learn some FACTS about the process and staff I see every day. (Disclaimer: I am not employed or associated in any professional way with Denver Cares or it's affiliates. I do not endorse, or provide service to the facility. I DO benefit from addiction counseling, structural rehabilitation, and obviously NO torture. I on my own behalf have authorized my name to represent the construction of this post only in stating my personal observation, interactions, and knowledge of the day to day challenges and opportunities of Denver Cares.)

The first thing people need to know is that the negative reviews below are extremely biased. The people claiming that people are being tortured at CARES and that they can 'see it happen' from their house are a fine example of yuppy gentrification. CARES existed long before they moved into their lofts, and if they did not want to live near a detox center perhaps they should have researched the area first. CARES is a first responder in HELPING homeless, rather than looking down on the homeless and seeing them as less than people as these reviewers do. Second, a lot of the disgruntled reviewers are from people who were brought in by either the patrol van or the police. If someone is brought to CARES, it's because they were intoxicated, and are a harm to themselves or others and are put into protective care. Detox is never a pleasant stay for anyone, but you can only blame yourself if you were brought to CARES. No one puts a drink into your hand but you. Third, it seems there are disgruntled former clients posting. The strict rules at CARES are for their own success. As they go further into the program, they get access to more freedom. Perhaps you should speak with the countless success stories the long term treatment program has helped rather than complaining about rules that are common at any detox facility. CARES does indeed have a huge homeless population, but there are plenty of regular people as well who have just had too much to drink. There is also a long term treatment program that is literally saving lives. All people are treated with dignity and as human beings and friends. The staff is caring, and certainly wouldn't be willing to work there if they didn't believe in the mission of CARES. Before you judge by some negative feedback, stop on by and check it out for yourself :)
