Sometimes you just need a fresh start—and that’s especially true when it comes to rehab.
You don’t want to be 10 minutes away from the people you used to party with. You don’t want to feel like you’re still in the same place that caused you so much trouble. And maybe you even need a break from family members and friends.
In that case, choosing an out-of-state rehab could be the best option for you.
Drawbacks to Going out of State for Inpatient Drug Rehab
The biggest potential drawback to out-of-state rehab is that it makes it more difficult for loved ones to participate in family therapy, a valuable tool to help learn new—and more positive—ways of communicating with loved ones.
There are some circumstances, however, when interaction with family members is not beneficial. In those cases, it may be a good idea to take a break from those relationships—and focus exclusively on recovery.
Recovery in Denver, Colorado
What many people don’t understand is that rehab isn’t just about getting sober. It’s about getting a life—a life so rich and full that you’ll look back some day on this time period and wonder how it ever happened.
And that’s exactly what makes Denver one of the best places to re-launch your life. It’s blessed by the beauty of the Rockies, but also offers the art, theater, fine dining and interesting vibe of a big city. You can go rock climbing or gallery hopping. You can spend the afternoon browsing a bookstore or hiking a new trail. You can go for Thai food or stop at the farmers market to pick up the fresh, local food you need to cook your own meal.
