A detailed list of the primary issues commonly treated.

Substance Abuse + Addiction Treatment at ARTS - Westside Center for Change
Rehabilitation, Medication, and Therapy – a combination of all three is most effective.
The most successful treatments for drug dependence or abuse have been those that include education and counseling and medication such as methadone or buprenorphine. The right drug abuse treatments need counseling, psychotherapy, and detoxification or medications to help with withdrawal symptoms.
Substance abuse can take many different forms, including the overuse or misuse of prescription drugs, unprescribed drugs, alcohol addiction, and drug addiction.
A combination of treatments is often needed to treat drug abuse issues effectively. In the case of drug abuse, there is no easy answer or one-size-fits-all cure.
While some drug addictions can be treated with counseling and support groups, many drug abusers also need medication to help them overcome their addiction. In other cases, drug abuse can lead to a medical problem and require medical treatment.
Treatment for drug addiction typically combines counseling and psychotherapy with medication and behavioral therapies. In some rare cases, hospitalization may also be required. All different treatments combined are the best way to help someone addicted to drugs, alcohol, or other substances.

Levels of Care Offered
ARTS - Westside Center for Change offers a variety of treatment.
This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Aftercare Support, Detox, Drug Rehab, Dual-Diagnosis, Intensive Outpatient, Outpatient, Residential, with additional therapies available as listed below.
Detox is the stage of recovery where the drugs or alcohol are entirely removed from your body. There are two different ways to detox, with medications and without. For many drugs and alcohol, the acute phase of detox can be completed in a number of days.
Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
An intensive outpatient treatment program, or IOP, is set up for those struggling with an addiction to begin the recovery process. However, the patient will not live at the facility during treatment.
IOP involves patients coming in and out of a medical office building regularly to receive therapy and other services while continuing their life outside of these visits.
IOP is a step up from drug detoxification or alcohol detox. However, it’s still considered a phase of recovery rather than the ultimate goal. There are many rehabs and treatment facilities available to patients in need of IOP.
Outpatient treatment can be considered the lowest intensity level of addiction treatment in Arvada, CO. It is ideal for early phase addiction or lower intensity addictions. ARTS - Westside Center for Change peer group support, 12-step programs, and individual counseling are likely to be involved.
Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient’s individual requirements.
Aftercare support is vital to those who have completed a drug or alcohol treatment program. This support comes in individual and family counseling, treatment of psychiatric and other medical conditions, and medications to reduce cravings. It helps recovering addicts adjust to normal day-to-day activities and can last for a year or longer.
The majority of drug and alcohol addicts who receive aftercare treatment do not relapse. It is estimated that without aftercare, the relapse rate will be between 70 to 90 percent for most people. Aftercare is the final stage in addiction recovery, but it will also help maintain sobriety if relapse does occur.
Therapies & Programs
The methods used to care for each individual at this Arvada, CO Facility.
Individual therapy is ideal for addicts who want to focus on themselves. It can also be helpful for those whose withdrawal symptoms are exacerbated by the presence of other people.
Benefits of individual therapy are:
- Access to a personalized treatment plan that focuses on the individual needs of the addict
- More privacy during treatment sessions
- Better personal development through introspection
- Increased self-awareness regarding addictive tendencies in order to avoid relapse
- Greater potential for a long-term recovery plan
- Receiving professional advice and detox assistance from medical staff
Family therapy can help you and your family deal with old issues that may trigger substance abuse. The idea behind family therapy for drug addiction is that you are never fully healed from substance abuse until you’ve healed your relationship with your family, too. To get sober, you need to find a different way to cope with the pain in your life.
This is when a group of people in various stages of recovery meet up and discuss their experiences, triggers, successes, failures, and even alternative therapies! Unlike support groups where everyone already knows each other, group therapy is conducted along side outpatient or inpatient treatment at ARTS - Westside Center for Change.
Trauma therapy is a clinical process that helps individuals deal with mental stress often caused by traumatic events. The therapist helps the person identify, understand and work through the problem. This is done with the help of talking about it in group or one-on-one counseling sessions.
Therapists use relaxation, role-playing, art, and music to help the person open up about what is bothering them. Some examples include:
- Talking about the traumatic event and how it affected them.
- Helping those who have PTSD to deal with their nightmares and recurring memories.
- Working with individuals to resolve the issues triggering the stress, whether seeing someone who reminds them of what happened or feeling helpless.
The individual is also encouraged to help others that are struggling with similar problems. This often helps them feel empowered and gives them hope.
Trauma therapy is not for everyone; it is usually reserved for people who have recently experienced a traumatic event and struggle to get over it. It is generally done for children, teenage victims of sexual assault, and war veterans.
The results of Rational Emotional Behavior Therapy treatment are clear. It seeks to help you in the short term rather than being lifelong treatment. Rational Emotional Behavior Therapy addresses the root issue of an individual’s emotional distress. It is proven effective with substance use disorders, which can help break a spiral of negative thinking. A drug rehab center that uses REBT is more likely to be successful. It creates lasting changes in a patient’s behavior, and this can improve your quality of life.

- Individuals who have already stopped drug/alcohol use
- Individuals who have already stopped drug/alcohol use, and are looking for a support system to maintain sobriety

Creative Arts Therapy is one of the most effective types of therapy used in addiction recovery at ARTS - Westside Center for Change. The use of art, music, dance, and other creative pursuits stimulate neurogenesis (the growth of new brain cells) which helps increase memory, focus, problem-solving abilities, and self-awareness. It also increases motivation to make changes in one’s life and reduces stress and anxiety, allowing addicts to combat triggers more effectively.
Creative Arts Therapy helps drug users increase their self-awareness. A major factor in addiction is avoidance of emotions, which can be challenging to identify or express. Creative arts therapy helps raise awareness of feelings. It also allows addicts to explore themselves and their relationships with others more deeply, which can help them break the patterns of addictive behavior that have developed.
