Denver Alcoholism Statistics
Denver is no stranger to alcohol. In fact, in 2019, the now Director of Denver Public Health Bill Burman stated that, “Denver has a drinking problem”. He certainly wasn’t wrong, as made obvious by the statistics below:
- Of the 30,000 people who went to the emergency room for substance use related issues, approximately 36% of them were for alcohol public
- Roughly 46 people per day were admitted to community based detox centers in 2019
- 38% of fatal car accidents in the Denver area were a result of drunk driving
- More than 27% of citizens living in Denver binge drink
The best, most effective way to avoid becoming part of these statistics is to seek professional addiction treatment immediately to safely stop drinking for good.
Outpatient Alcohol Rehab in Denver
A large part of alcohol rehab in Denver is understanding what led you to a dysfunctional and addictive relationship with it, leading to the consequences you’re now dealing with.
For some people, it was normal experimenting as a teen that developed into tolerance, dependence, and addiction. For others, it was an escape from problems or self-medicating the symptoms of anxiety, bipolar depression, attention-deficit disorder, or post-traumatic stress disorder.
Ultimately, you must learn to live comfortably without the use of alcohol and develop coping skills for the inevitable ups and downs of life. We’ll uncover the root causes of the “why” of alcohol addiction. What are your triggers?
