State of Colorado Profile of Drug Indicators

Drinking alcohol has become so socially accepted, it has become the norm; plus, alcohol is a legal substance. However, one drink can easily lead to too many, resulting in alcohol abuse and the need for alcohol treatment. As the above chart depicts, alcohol dependency outruns other drug dependencies in Colorado, attaining the highest rate. Still, the abuse of each substance remains a problem.

A National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) survey combining 2002–2003 estimates with the most recent estimates from 2005–2006 has ranked Colorado among the 10 States with the nation’s highest rates. Colorado’s rates have been greater than the national rate based on the global measuring of any prior year’s dependence on alcohol or illegal drugs. Between 2005 and 2006, the rates were also among the country’s highest for all ages.

In 2006, there were 443 treatment facilities in Colorado. 245 of these centers were private for-profit while 165 were private nonprofit. Colorado has seen an increase since 2002, with the amount rising from 389 to 443. This is largely due to an additional 45 private for-profit facilities.

In 2006, 417 facilities included outpatient treatment in their services. Furthermore, 68 facilities offered residential care and 11 had a treatment program designed to treat opiate addiction, which included drug detox programs.

In 2006, 172 of all centers received federal, state, or local funds granted by the government. There were 72 facilities that held agreements with managed care establishments, which helped to provide substance abuse treatment services. Additionally, a one-day census showed 33,264 patients at Colorado treatment centers; 31,591 of them were participating in outpatient treatment. There were 2,717 patients under 18 years old in treatment at this particular time.

Over the past 15 years, treatment admissions for alcohol, cocaine, and marijuana stayed generally consistent. However, admissions for alcohol treatment saw a decrease from 69 percent in 1992 and increase of 63 percent in 2006. This grim reality continued with methamphetamine admissions, which escalated from 2 percent in 1992 to 11 percent in 2006. Additionally, admissions for drug-only treatment rose from 7 percent in 1992 to 16 percent in 2006.

Per the NSDUH, Colorado’s rate for the serious psychological distress (SPD) stayed at or below the national rates. The rates for major depressive episodes succeeded the national rate, particularly for individuals 12 to 17 years of age. By visiting a treatment center trained to help combat the deadly diseases that are alcohol and drug addiction, individuals addicted to these substances will be one step closer to overcoming them.
