Why Colorado Needs the RAC

There is an addiction and mental health crisis in Colorado, and around the United States. As Colorado Attorney General Philip J. Weiser has noted, “More people have died in the United States of drug overdoses — mostly opioids — than died in the Vietnam War and the Iraq War, combined.”

The rapid rise in these types of illnesses is why we are building southern Colorado’s first clinically monitored residential withdrawal management and substance use disorder treatment center. Currently, people must travel as far as 100 miles to access these vital services. The RAC will give people the opportunity to recover closer to home.
