Dr. Beth Ballen, Physican & Founder of CRIC:
As psychiatrist, I practice integrative and holistic psychiatry. I provide traditional treatment and medication when necessary and also do more natural options.
We pride ourselves on providing a warm and nurturing environment. We have very compassionate staff.
Infusion therapy is our hallmark treatment. It is a blend of amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. Which help detoxify the body, heal the brain, and actually restore your neurotransmitters, which are the hormones in your brain that control a great deal of things including mood, appetite, weight, addiction, cravings.
Our standard treatment is typically ten days. Ten days is usually enough for depression, for detoxification, and for most substances such as alcohol. There are certain substances that do take a little bit longer. Depending on a client’s use pattern and history that would be determined on an individual basis and tailored to them.
We also provide different infusions such as the Myers cocktail which is good for a number of reasons. A lot of people do that on a regular basis for overall health. We also provide high dose vitamin C infusions, which is very good for the immune system. Often used as an adjunctive treatment for cancer.
Most of our staff have dealt with addiction and recovery either with personal history family members or friends. So, we’re all quite familiar how difficult this process can be. We want to make it as comfortable and easy for people as possible.
The treatment is safe for all ages and we’re actually using it in younger people a lot more as children and adolescents are becoming addicted to particularly marijuana as it’s become legal and so readily available and more potent.
Seeing those patients that I’ve known for years get such immediate and profound relief with the amino acids has been a wonderful experience for me.
Amy, Infusion Therapy Patient at Colorado Recovery Infusion Therapy:
“Speaking to Dr. Ballen we kind of decided on that the infusion therapy would be the best solution for me because I wanted something natural. I’m also very impatient. I’m really big into health and fitness. So, it just made the most sense out of anything. Ten days since I did my infusion and everything was great”
Austin, IV Therapy for Addicton Recovery Patient at Colorado Recovery Infusion Therapy:
“I love the fact that Ballen Medical does work as a team. I never feel like I’m left alone. I have been through infusion therapy when I was at this other place, I was sober for a year but I didnt have after care. With Ballen Medical, I have a bunch of aftercare and I have a lot of support and a lot of love and a lot of encouragement. That’s a really big thing too! Since I’ve been here… it’s definitely been the best decision I’ve made, ever.”
