Who We Treat
Addiction is a disease that does not draw distinctions. It brings chaos to all types of families, disrupts relationships and sidetracks even the most gifted individuals. For men and women seeking to end their drug or alcohol misuse, NorthStar Transitions provides a continuum of care including detox, residential treatment, outpatient therapy and sober living options to guide you from chemical dependency to sobriety. In our Joint Commission-accredited addiction treatment programs, men and women find evidence-based therapies designed to restore physical and spiritual strength in individuals and heal discord in families and relationships.
Effects of Chemical Dependency on Families
Misuse of drugs and alcohol can devastate family life by stretching financial resources, reversing parent-child roles and destroying trust. The stress of addictive behaviors also damages the physical, mental and emotional health of addicted individuals and those closest to them. The pervasiveness of alcohol and drug dependency is no stranger to NorthStar Transitions–many of our treatment team members have personal experience with addiction and recovery. Our Denver treatment center serves as a safe haven for individuals and their families as they embark on the journey to health and restoration.
NorthStar draws clients from a broad spectrum of occupations and backgrounds. Our individualized treatment programs fit the needs of working professionals, business owners, college students, work-at-home parents and individuals managing co-occurring disorders. When dual-diagnosis patients face depression, anxiety or other co-occurring conditions, NorthStar’s licensed addiction specialists partner with outside professionals to ensure the best possible care for our clients.
