Addiction is a disease. It is also a growing concern in American public health. Regardless of the initial reason for trying drugs or alcohol, no one wants to be an addict. The prolonged use of drugs and alcohol alters the brain’s neurochemistry and creates a psychological and physiological need. Once misuse and abuse advance to the level of addiction and dependency, it is tough to stop without professional drug resources and intervention.

At Mile High Recovery Center, our substance abuse treatment center and professional, qualified staff can provide the support necessary to break the cycle of addiction. We offer substance abuse treatment programs including:

What We Treat Most Often

Mile High Recovery Center understands that every addiction experience is unique, and our treatment reflects that individualized approach. Our urban location ensures we see individuals who stumbled into addiction for different reasons. For some, the path to addiction was social events, nightlife, and parties full of excess. Still, others struggling with anxiety, depression, or other mental health issues used drugs and alcohol as a form of self-medication, our center has various substance abuse treatments to help you.

Here are some common substance abuse disorders we see in our rehab center in Denver, Colorado:


Alcohol is both legal and socially acceptable and is often part of any social gathering. Everything from Sunday football games to all-night clubbing to holidays with family and friends can include alcohol. When alcohol becomes habitually associated with almost every social activity, it is easy for alcohol dependency to develop.

Party Drugs

Often accompanying alcohol are “party drugs” such as Ecstasy (MDMA), ketamine, or amphetamines. These drugs can quickly become habit-forming, and it is a short step from recreational use to full-blown addiction. Amphetamines are especially prevalent, often in the form of methamphetamine, and highly addictive.


You may have heard of the “opioid epidemic” that is sweeping across the United States. Heroin is a semi-synthetic opioid made from morphine that has been chemically processed. It enters the brain quickly and produces a more immediate effect in the form of intense euphoria.


Benzos are commonly prescribed to treat anxiety or sleep disorders. However, this calming and sedating effect is often accompanied by euphoria, which leads to abuse and addiction. Common benzos are Xanax and Valium and can easily become habit-forming.

At Mile High Recovery Center, we have experience treating alcohol and drug addiction, especially when coupled with mental health disorders. We can help you break the cycle and return to a life of sobriety with our substance abuse treatment.
