I was pleasantly surprised at Curawest’s down home feel. They are highly professional and at the same time have a smile and kind word for everyone. The staff of competent people doing their jobs in sometimes difficult situations impressed me. Though very much a Hospital setting as far as difficult and complex. The staff work to treat each patient with respect and dignity. Whenever a concern was present there was always a solution found to remedy it. The cleaning staff and food service personnel blew me away with their kindness. Always a smile. The staff work together to fill gaps when needed and all the therapists and instructors brought creative and informative classes daily. Would recommend to anyone who need to start their sober life start at Curawest.

Ive been to my fair share of treatment centers and this is one of the best by far between the medical staff, BHTs, and the therapist. This was my experience and I've managed to remain clean and sober since...I did the 10 day detox as MEDICAID DOES COVER THIS! I'm not saying I didn't cry my eyes out the first night and wanted to leave but I AM SO GLAD I STAYED!!!!! The nursing and medical staff ( shout out to Tia!) was amazing. The nursing staff was compassionate and I mean EVERY SINGLE ONE. Kristen is a favorite of everyone there and mine! The BHTs man, THEY GOT ME THROUGH my day to day big or insignificant struggles. Majority of people that work in these departments of CuraWest are in recovery and understand the struggle. A special shout out to Nick P, Collin, Jaci, and Cas for making this experience not only bearable for me but enjoyable and I will never forget those I just listed.... the compassion they had for anyone that walks in that door is just really exceptional and I hope anyone reading this has the chance to meet them. My therapist Taylor (female) was exceptional. She always took the time thought not every therapist I meet with did. Taylor not took extra time for my needs but also helped me view in ways I wasn't capable of looking at them. Last but certainly not least shout out to Kila who is a BOSS woman that really makes sure ANYTHING you need to handle in your outside while in treatment GETS HANDLED so YOU can focus on YOU. To everyone I listed thank you and I will see you all in a years time when I am hoping to be in a position to help others as they helped me...

They also help with finding treatment programs after you leave here and it's not just for detox, you can also do the residential program also which I also Highly recommend. ALL of the staff including the kitchen staff is great and the food it great too. So yes I give CuraWest 5 stars!!!

CuraWest is a wonderful place with a great staff, who are all dedicated to helping you achieve your full potential.The accommodations are great, rooms are either single or doubles with comfortable beds. The cooking staff does a great job preparing a variety of meals that are nutritious and taste great. The clinical staff is stocked with great therapists all of which lead a few groups a week, allowing you to get to know all of them. This is wonderful so that if your therapist is sick of out of office you feel comfortable reaching out to one of the other therapists if you need anything. The tech and nursing staffs are also great. They are always available 24/7 for any of your needs wether lifestyle or medical.CuraWest was critical in me getting sober and it was an extremely pleasant place to do it. I would absolutely recommend to anyone who is looking for a residential treatment center for substance use disorder.Thank you CuraWest!

Obviously, as a luxury detox center, the accommodation is incredibly clean, and comfortable.Around the clock snacks, the food is more than decent, though not Michelin starred or anything.The most impressive part about this facility is the staff. Willing to go above and beyond, not just medically but also printing out obscure artworks for my own drawings. The BHT is incredible.Had a wonderful experience with the counseling team as well. Ryan & Taylor provided high frequency, informative council in a positive and holistic setting.Couldn’t recommend them enough.The one caveat here would be the continued care and residential placement wasn’t quite what I was looking for.At no fault to Kyla, who advocated wonderfully on my behalf, but if you have the chance I would strongly recommend coming in with a preemptive residential strategy, unless you’re going into Cura West residential.Overall the best detox facility I’ve been to this far.

Highly recommended. The best thing I’ve done for myself in years. The staff is welcoming and compassionate. Thank you for the opportunity to start living the life I was always meant too and for helping find myself again
This place is ABSOLUTELY, hands down the best experience I have ever had in journey through recovery. The staff members here treat you like a human being instead of many of the other detox places I have unfortunately gone through in my life. I recommend t his absolutely as the best place to either check yourself in if you want help or for a family member. I have hope now that I can continue to work my recovery and I have been places in the past where that's definitely not the case at many other detox centers. I had a private room with a queen sized bed multiple pillows, was able to snack and smoke cigarettes and vapes 24/7 and my room had 48 inch flat screen with HD channels. Medicaid paid for my stay here so don't let that be the case of stopping you if you can't find any other places to go. CALL HERE IMMEDIATELY!!

This Detox and residential program was top notch. The workers from therapists to BHT’s were amazing. If you have a loved one who is need of treatment look no further… curawest is the best spot in town!
This facility is AMAZING! The staff is super helpful and were instrumental in me starting my recovery.They gave me so many tools in order to continue my sobriety while leaving after 30 days. The classes were very informative and helped in different ways but all beneficial.I would recommend this to anyone in any stage of recovery it is your first or 10th time doing recovery they make you feel welcome and start the process or getting you better.Everyone on staff was helpful no matter what their position and made it very comfortable and I knew I was getting the best care available.

Great place for detox and setting up IPO or residency. Attentitive to your needs, safe, and well fed but most of all freedom to work on yourself at your pace. Never felt like I was being forced. It wasn't meeting after meeting after meeting; good breaks between. Didn't feel rushed or like i wasn't aloud to have some alone time in my room. They had a variety people that came to speak, a ton of Councelers and an amazing clinic and tech staff. I felt lucky I landed in this place.

My experience at curawest has been truly amazing. Once I reached out the staff was able to get me in quickly and the treatment was very impactful. I originally went for detox but decided a residential stay would be best for my situation. The rooms were very nice and had TVs & comfortable beds. The groups were fun and engaging. I made many friends here which I am very grateful for. Thank you Nick, Lindsey, and Derek for doing my intake! Lastly shout out to Josh and Natalia for the amazing meals! Thanks everyone at Curawest!!

I had a life-changing experience here with the staff and clients at CuraWest. Like most everyone suffering from addiction who has decided to make a change, I came into their facility in rough shape…I wouldn’t have been able to move through detox so quickly without their support and love. That continued, around-the-clock support and love over my detox period was what made me decide to stay and engage in their 30-day residential program. I can’t speak highly enough of the staff there; most of them are in recovery and went above and beyond to listen, engage and empathize with me. It TRULY made the difference in my willingness to be vulnerable and share openly with them during all of the groups, outings and sessions with my therapist there. CuraWest really did become such a safe-haven for me during my stay.When I walked out of the doors on my last day, I was armed with an incredible new set of tools, coping skills and a serene sense of knowing myself better than I previously ever had in my life.Thank you so much CuraWest :)

This place was amazing. I came in not knowing what to expect. But all the technicians, and therapists were we've understanding and helpful. A lot of them being recovering addicts or personally affected by addiction made them empathetic and compassionate. The tools they have given me make me feel like I can actually stay sober and continue in recovery. Props to all of them, and love to death
Cura West took such amazing care of me in both detox and in their residential program. I have learned so much and can honestly say that I’m leaving with an entirely new outlook on my life.I’d like to give a special shoutout to Clay (therapist), Kyla (case manager), Lindsey, (RN), and ALL of the super hardworking techs. Collin, Jaci, Max, Big Nick, Little Nick, Joey….you all made my days brighter, and I can’t begin to tell you how much it meant to me! 😘

I was very impressed with the quality of care I received at CuraWest. Not only was the staff very helpful and knowledgeable; the food was great. I appreciated all the opportunities there were to go off site including gym, meetings and patient activities. If I ever have to return to a rehab facility, I would definitely go back to CuraWest.

I went to Curawest for medical detox from alcohol. While the detox process can be very painful, both mentally and physically, the entire staff made the process as comfortable as possible. The arrival process was very efficient and I was able to see the nursing staff extremely quickly. From the tech staff, to the nursing staff, to the therapist and admin staff, they were all outstanding. They were in constant communication ensuring that I was as comfortable as possible. The food was great and snacks were also available whenever needed. Even during the detox process, they allow you to attend their inpatient classes and AA meetings as well. If you or a loved one is struggling and needs help, I highly recommend Cruawest.

I can not say enough good things about this place. The staff is full of amazing caring individuals and you can genuinely feel their desire to help everyone. CuraWest was the first place I ever felt like I truly belonged somewhere and was accepted. The therapists worked wonders in just the short amount of time. While the real world remains tough, this place helped me build the foundation to take it on with courage.

CuraWest has been one of the best choices I have made in my life! My clinical deep Depression and clinical deep Anxiety lead me to excessive drinking and they we're able to work on my specific issues and have set up a road map for me moving forward. The staff could not have been more kinder towards me. They we're always so supportive and positive to me throughout my treatment. I truly recommend CuraWest if you are reading this and going through any drug, alcohol, depression and anxiety troubles...💯Thank you CuraWest 😊 ❤️😎

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! We work with most major insurance providers. We offer free no-obligation insurance benefit checks for those who are interested in our program. Our admissions team will speak with your insurer and get a detailed verification of your insurance benefits and share those details with you. Unfortunately medicaid and medicare do not cover our facility.

CuraWest – Detox & Recovery Center is located in the heart of Denver, Colorado. At:

2535 S Downing St
Suite 500
Denver, CO 80210

Often traveling out of your home town is the best option for treatment. The temptation to leave early and relapse is much lower when you are away from the people and places that are associated with your substance use. CuraWest offers a complimentary car service for individuals in the surrounding areas who are interested in coming to the program. If you are traveling out of state for detox or residential treatment, we are able to help coordinate a flight and reliable transportation to/from the airport. Please note — the cost of transportation services such as airfare are the financial responsibility of the client. 

Admissions is quick and easy. Once you call our admissions team one of our dedicated counselors will perform a pre-assessment over the phone . This takes about 10 minutes and just makes sure CuraWest is the best fit for you or your loved ones individual needs. After the assessment we will verify insurance benefits and arrange a time for your intake (this can be as quick as 30 minutes from the initial call). If you need a ride to the facility we will dispatch one of our drivers and you will begin your recovery at our facility. It is that easy. To get started call us 24/7 at (888) 687-5118.

Once admitted to our program, clients are encouraged to complete a Release of Information (ROI) form for friends, family, employers, etc. Due to HIPPA laws we are not allowed to confirm or deny any patient’s attendance at our facility without a signed release of information. These laws are in place to protect the privacy of those who are seeking help. If your loved one did not complete an ROI, what we can do is take down your name and information as well as any message you have. If the person you are needing to contact is at our facility we will make sure they receive the message as soon as possible and ask to set-up a ROI for you.

We offer programs lengths individualized for each client. Generally detox is anywhere from 3 and 10 days and the residential portion of our program is between 3 and 21 days. These are estimates and are adjusted to meet the needs of the individual client.

During detox access to laptops and cell phones are restricted. However, special arrangements can be made for individuals who need to conduct business or important personal matters. For clients who are self employed, we do offer an executive program that allows for cellphone and laptop access in certain cases during business hours. Clients are able to make phone calls to loved ones during the residential portion of our program, but cell phone use is restricted. We encourage our clients to focus all of their attention on healing by eliminating potential distractions. 

We accept adults ages 18 or over.

While we strongly discourage leaving before treatment completion, we are not a lockdown facility. Clients are in our program voluntary and may leave when they want. Once a client transitions into the residential portion of our program, they will have the opportunity to participate in group outings.

Clients who need to take off work to attend treatment may be eligible for the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA). FMLA ensures that you will not be terminated while taking a leave of absences from work to attend treatment. Our admissions and case management staff can help with setting up any FMLA paperwork. For clients who are self employed, we do offer an executive program that allows for cellphone and laptop access in certain cases during business hours.

We do offer private bedrooms, however these rooms are on a first come first serve basis.

Yes. Tobacco products are allowed in our facility. However we do not allow electronic cigarettes (vapes).

Absolutely. We understand that addiction affects the entire family system and encourage families to participate in their loved one’s treatment. To help families recover we also offer intervention services, case management, and family workshops.

Yes. We believe in complete and total confidentiality and privacy for all of our clients. We take extra measures to make sure we go above and beyond HIPAA and health privacy standards. If you are concerned about specific privacy requirements please feel free to reach out and we can answer your questions.

The CuraWest detoxification and residential addiction treatment cost can be covered by most health insurance companies. If you are uninsured or underinsured, CuraWest will create a customized payment plan based on your individual needs and length of stay.

If you’re wondering if you or your loved one needs treatment chances are someone needs help.  Before admission into our program we offer a pre-assessment to determine if clients meet criteria for admissions to treatment. To complete a complementary pre-assessment please call our admissions team at (888) 687-5118

During detox, medication is used to ease withdrawal from the drugs or alcohol that clients have been using. The types of medication used are determined by our medical team based on the needs of the client. Common medications used for opiate detox are suboxone and clonidine. Alcohol and benzodiazepines are commonly detoxed using librium, gabapentin and baclofen. If you have questions about detox medication please contact our admissions team 24/7 at (888) 687-5118. During the residential portion of our program, the administration of essential medications will be closely monitored. We do not offer MAT at this time.
