Our Facility in Colorado
We’re a modern 64-bed inpatient facility in Loveland, Colorado, with leading-edge medical technology and a strong reputation for clinical excellence and healthcare quality.
Because alcohol is legal and easy to get, it may seem less harmful than illicit or prescription drugs. Unfortunately, alcohol addiction affects people across the country and here in Colorado. At Northpoint Colorado, we believe in helping the greater Colorado community with individualized detox and alcohol rehab programs.
We take an integrated approach to treating alcohol dependency and addiction. This means that we won’t only focus on your physical symptoms but also on the underlying mental conditions, trauma, and root causes of your alcohol problem.
It can be hard to know when it’s time to see help for alcohol addiction. Alcohol works as a depressant, slowing messages from the brain to the body. This is why people stumble, slur speech, and have poor reflexes while intoxicated. While drinking occasionally can cause these symptoms and dehydration, frequently drinking changes a person’s brain chemistry. When this happens, the brain and body become dependent on alcohol to function. Signs of alcohol addiction include:
In today’s stressful world, social drinking can often turn into habitual drinking. For many people, this can lead to alcohol dependency, alcohol overdose, and serious health problems. If you or someone in your life is showing signs of alcohol dependency, professional detox at Northpoint Colorado can help.
At Northpoint Colorado, we use a three-step program to help our patients safely detox from alcohol and begin their road to recovery. Some patients may need to begin with inpatient detox for health and safety reasons, while outpatient programs may be more suitable for others.
The first step in Northpoint Colorado’s alcohol rehab program is detox. We use medically assisted treatment, 24/7 monitoring, and psychiatric care to help people safely and effectively detox from alcohol. When the body and brain develop alcohol dependence, alcohol withdrawal symptoms can make it impossible to quit drinking on your own. Quitting cold turkey can be dangerous and often leads to relapse or overdose. Like with other substances, alcohol overdose can be fatal.
After withdrawal has subsided, patients spend approximately three weeks working with psychologists to understand addiction triggers and retrain their brain for healthy coping mechanisms. During this time, patients may receive treatment for co-occurring mental health concerns as well.
Once a patient has completed inpatient rehab, they transition back to life at home. Our outpatient program lengths vary based on a person’s needs. During this time, patients apply what they’ve learned during the second phase of rehab to their daily lives. They may be part of our PHP or IOP, either in person or remotely.
The three stages of alcohol detox and rehab help patients understand their relationships with alcohol, stress, past trauma, and addiction. With individualized care, patients receive the level of support they need to thrive.
