Connection | Lasting Sobriety


A side-effect of addiction, isolation, disconnects us from our community, our loved ones, and our life itself. When drugs/alcohol are number one we lose not only time with those around us, but the connection that brings joy, trust, and fulfillment.

In sobriety, we must fight against slipping back into isolation. Depression adds to the likelihood of closing ourselves off. While not all addicts have depression it is quite common. The loss of energy and interest make even small outings difficult. But a commitment to seeking out others brings a bright spark to our days.


A great place to start is within our chosen meetings, support groups, or out-patient/after-care groups. Simply attending meetings listening to the stories of others and sharing in their triumphs and struggles open us and allow us to move beyond our own thoughts and worries. Sharing your own story brings a deeper level of connection. 

In the larger community engagement is limitless and can be focused on your special interests: Volunteer, lend a hand to a neighbor, attend a city event, join a sports team or community run. Your can find opportunities that tap talents you have and relate to things you are curious about.

Loved Ones

Whether healing relationships or strengthening them, the most important step is reaching out. Starting with simple phone calls or texts opens up the line of communication. Touching base, sharing photos, and trading news—no matter how small—creates a rapport and conveys care and attention. Some days that is all we can manage. Even if it is brief, communication forges connection. 

Beyond that, including loved ones in our routines builds a two-way street of support. Meeting up for a meal, to work out, go shopping, allows us to open up our world and share in the worlds of those special to us. Try scheduling regular weekly or monthly gatherings. Looking forward to a get-together with family or friends make long days or weeks more bearable for all.

Even if you do not feel up to it, stretch yourself to make those connections. Your world and theirs will be brighter as a result. Connections allow us to share experiences and give and receive support, resulting in a content fulfilled life. So simple, but not always easy to achieve.

A Succes Story on How We Treat Alcohol Addiction at InnerBalance:

Frequently Asked Questions

Does the best addiction treatment center offer Biochemical Repair & Restoration and how do they define Biochemical Restoration?

At InnerBalance Health Center, we strive to get the best addiction treatment to gain a better understanding of the psychological effects of addiction to drugs and/or alcohol.. As a component of our holistic addiction treatment process, we understand that there are certain biochemical imbalances that can make a person more prone to the addictive cycle.

Is the staff available 24/7?

Yes, at InnerBalance Health Center clients have access to a staff member 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

Does the treatment center prescribe addictive medications such as benzodiazepines or opiates?

No, InnerBalance does not prescribe those types of medications, unless needed for temporary stabilization for withdrawal symptoms. We focus on identifying the root causes of cravings, repairing your body’s biochemical imbalances and teaching you the lifelong skills necessary to stay sober.

How does the treatment center plan to eliminate depression, anxiety, sleep problems, mood swings, and racing mind?

At InnerBalance we realize the need to find the root cause of these issues. For example, a racing mind can come from too much histamine in the brain, a condition caused Histadelia. When we find this condition through lab testing, we use the safe amino acids and vitamins that will lower histamine levels. Depression can come from under-functioning neurotransmitters, like serotonin.

Through urine testing, we check the serotonin receptors by looking at the Tryptophan levels, and then treat with the appropriate amino acids. Please call us for a more thorough description on how we can deal with underlying symptoms. These examples just scratch the surface of our biochemical restoration approach which is integral to our holistic treatment philosophy.

Is the treatment center licensed by the state?

Yes, the InnerBalance Health Center is fully and duly licensed by the State of Colorado.

Does the treatment program offer an exercise program that the client participates in?

The InnerBalance Treatment Program includes a mandatory weekly gym time. We encourage our clients to try the different gym facilities, including weights, pool activities, classes, etc. InnerBalance provides a high quality full service gym facility to their patients.
