It’s official: the opioid crisis has finally been declared a national public health emergency. We hope this will help reduce the stigma of getting treatment, as opioids were responsible for approximately 64,000 deaths last year. That’s 175 Americans a day. More than gun-related deaths and even more car accidents.
At this time, we’d like to offer free opioid consultations for anyone dealing with opioid dependence or addiction. Many of our clients with opioid dependence are high-functioning, and afraid of the stigma of getting help. We’re very sensitive to that, and offer respectful, nonjudgmental, out-patient treatment in a warm, caring environment.

Traditional & Natural Holistic Opioid Treatment Programs
Like almost everything at our center, we treat opioid dependence holistically, starting with comfortable, prompt detox and neurotransmitter renewal that can be done naturally with amino acid IV therapy. We also offer Suboxone for opioid dependence, which can be used to taper off completely or for maintenance. During detox and tapering, we provide comfort medication as necessary to make sure the process isn’t unnecessarily stressful, and we work in conjunction with your work schedule to make sure you miss as little work as possible. Many of our patients don’t miss any work at all.
In addition to detox or tapering, we can help you fight any underlying issues that may accompany your dependence – from addiction or emotional issues to depression and anxiety. We also provide proper aftercare with individual or group therapy. Aftercare is crucial to avoid relapse for most people. And if you already have a therapist or therapy group, we’ll happily coordinate your therapy and aftercare with your existing practitioners.
Below is a testimonial from one of our recent clients who was dependent on opioids for over a year and a half, and was able to detox comfortably with almost no withdrawal systems.
If you or a loved one needs help with opioid dependence, please call us today at (720)222-0550 to schedule a complimentary consultation with our founder, integrative psychiatrist Beth Ballen, MD, or with our nurse practitioner, Leslie Vannucci, NP. They’ll be happy to meet you where you are and get you the care you need.
Testimonial from Previous Opioid-Dependent Client
What a recent client had to say about working with Ballen Medical & Wellness for his opiate addiction:
I’d been addicted to opioids for a year and a half, and I was able to stop them completely – and all naturally – thanks to the 10-day outpatient program of IV amino acids at Colorado Recovery Infusion Center. It’s been two months since I finished the aminos, and I still haven’t had any cravings for opioids. My anxiety’s also better, and I’m even working out again for the first time since I was diagnosed with anxiety .
In my case, I’d been prescribed Oxycontin for a few small injuries but the dose was insanely high and I was taking five 30-milligram Oxycontins a day. By the time they ran out I was hooked on them and needed more, and that’s actually when my anxiety began. As a matter of fact, I’d come to Dr. Ballen to discuss my anxiety and that’s when I learned about the IV amino acid program for detoxing from opioids.
During the first couple days of treatment I was lethargic and tired, but after about the fourth or fifth day I really starting noticing results. And I only had one day with withdrawal symptoms, which was a relief because I’d heard how extremely harsh withdrawing from opioids could be.
You know, anytime you’re going through health issues, especially addiction or anything sensitive like that, there’s always a little bit of fear. But Dr. Ballen put me at ease right away and I never felt uncomfortable or like I was being judged or anything like that. Nurse Tara was also unbelievable, and super easy to talk to while I was doing all my treatment. Everything about the whole program was just amazing, including the follow up and check ins.
It was almost an 80 mile drive each way for me, but that’s how much I believed in the treatment and thought that it would work for me and thankfully I was right.
