If you or someone you know is struggling with substance abuse, we can help. We serve both adults and adolescents struggling with addiction issues — including drugs, alcohol, medications and substances — with comprehensive services that lead to recovery.
A leader in dual-diagnosis treatment
Since 1977, the Aquarius Center at Arapahoe/Douglas Mental Health Network has also been effectively treating individuals who are dually diagnosed; that is, those who are challenged by both mental illness and addiction. As the first outpatient program in Colorado to integrate treatment for both chemical dependency and mental health issues, we focus on treating each individual's underlying mental illness and substance abuse problem at the same time. This fosters a more successful recovery. Our programs are "evidenced-based," which means that they have been proven to work.
Services especially for women, moms, and expectant mothers
We offer treatment options for women, including a trauma group, a women's group, and a group for both mothers and mothers-to-be.
Our case management services and mental health treatment options are designed to meet the special treatment needs of pregnant women and mothers. We work hard to make sure pregnant women and mothers can quickly access treatment. See flyer. Call 303 730 8858 and let them know you fall in this category for a priority appointment.
We work with teens.
Our Adolescent Substance Abuse Treatment program works with teens and their families to help break the cycle of addiction with the support of the family. These special program helps families to understand the nature and severity of the substance abuse, family dynamics, communication styles, and ways to eliminate self-defeating substance-abuse behaviors.
Take the path to recovery.
The goal is to help clients completely abstain from drugs and alcohol; gain self-confidence; develop new skills; and take control of their symptoms to avoid future involvement in substance abuse as they travel the path to recovery.
You can receive initial new-client forms in person, by mail or finding them here.
