Substance Use Treatment

We can meet your needs with a variety of substance use treatment across the region.

Substance use treatment

If you’re struggling with substance use problems, you’re not alone. We’re here to help.

Substance use is a pattern of harmful use of any substance to alter your mood. Substances can include alcohol and other drugs (illegal or not) as well as some substances that are not drugs at all. Substance “abuse” can result because you are using a substance in a way that is not intended or recommended, or because you are using more than prescribed. If you drink enough to get frequent hangovers; use enough drugs that you miss work or school; smoke enough marijuana that you have lost friends; or often drink or use more than you intended to use, your substance use may be at the abuse level.

If you’re concerned about your substance use, our experienced team is ready to help you with alcohol and drug treatment. Axis Health System has been the primary licensed provider of Substance Use Disorder (SUD) treatment services in Southwest Colorado since 1972.
