Residential addiction treatment is an intensive, long-term program for someone recovering from substance abuse. Typically, this treatment happens in a more comfortable facility than a hospital but is highly structured, with almost all hours of the day filled with therapeutic activities. This serves to break the client’s negative thought patterns and behaviors while actively addicted. Many rehab programs will follow a continuum of care that begins with detox, moves to residential addiction treatment, and then transitions to various outpatient programs and alumni support.

If you or someone you know is struggling with a substance use disorder, Mile High Recovery Center can help. Reach out at 303-268-2144 to learn more about our inpatient (residential) facilities to help you get started on your recovery journey. As a part of our recovery community, you will discover a welcoming and judgment-free experience designed to get you on the path to sobriety.

What To Expect In Residential Treatment

Overcoming substance abuse is a challenging and complex process. One of the facets of recovery is dealing with the stigma of substance abuse. However, at Mile High Recovery Center, we believe that the opposite of addiction is connection. You will become part of a vibrant recovery community and join our hundreds of alumni upon successful completion of your treatment. Our atmosphere is designed not to leave you feeling judged or looked down upon, but supported and empowered to pursue your path of recovery.


Inpatient Treatment Services

One of the benefits of going through rehab at Mile High Recovery Center is the numerous evidence-based therapies we offer. These proven therapies include the following, as well as others:

  • Individual therapy
  • Group therapy
  • Family therapy
  • Yoga therapy
  • Trauma therapy

The various therapy options allow you to sort out your addiction’s root cause. Consequently, this also helps you explore if mental health conditions are at play. With that in mind, dual diagnosis treatment may be an option to get you successfully on your way to recovery. The dual diagnosis treatment approach recognizes that addiction and mental illness often go hand-in-hand. Both conditions must be treated simultaneously to promote the best possible outcome.

Specific Drug Rehab Programs

At Mile High Recovery Center, we are equipped to help you with many substance use disorders, ranging from alcohol to party drugs to heroin. However, we have developed specific rehab options for heroin and opioid addiction over time.

Heroin Rehab

Statistically, most heroin use in America is by young adults (18-25). It is a growing problem facing America and is causing untold devastation on individuals and their families. According to the National Institutes of Health, the number of people who tried heroin for the first time doubled between 2006 and 2016.

The benefit of heroin rehab at Mile High Recovery Center is that we customize a treatment plan for you. Commonly, our approach is medication-assisted treatment (MAT). In this program, clients are given Suboxone under the supervision and care of medical professionals. Suboxone is used to reduce cravings and minimize withdrawal symptoms. Furthermore, clients in heroin rehab can participate in the many addiction therapies available here.

Opioid Rehab

There are startling statistics about opioid addiction. The National Institutes of Health reports that over 130 people die from an opioid overdose every day. Many prescription painkillers are opioids such as hydrocodone, oxycodone, fentanyl, codeine, hydromorphone, and morphine. The unfortunate truth is that many people who have become dependent on opioids are not recreational users; they are people that were legitimately prescribed a painkiller for chronic pain or post-surgery and developed a dependency. While these medications have a legitimate role in medical care, they are extremely habit-forming.

Discover Residential Treatment At Mile High Recovery Center

The Mile High Recovery Center provides several therapeutic options available, including:

  • Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT)
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
  • Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)


Of notable importance is dual diagnosis treatment. It is not uncommon that an individual who has become dependent upon drugs or alcohol will develop a mental health condition. Often, it is anxiety or depression, but there are numerous other mental health issues that a substance use disorder increases the risk of manifesting. While those mental health issues are easily diagnosed, studies show a strong correlation between substance abuse and undiagnosed mental health issues.

At Mile High Recovery Center, you can expect that we will take a customized approach to your residential treatment plan. Please call us at 303-268-2144 so a member of our staff can discuss the benefits of residential treatment for recovering from substance abuse.
