The majority of detox programs take place in residential settings, but some can be “ambulatory” outpatient programs. Detox programs are medically monitored and help you overcome the physical and psychological symptoms of withdrawal.

Offering a safe, secure environment free of drugs and alcohol, inpatient or residential treatment includes 24-hour support. Look for residential programs that offer evidence-based therapies like DBT (dialectical behavior therapy) and CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy).

Inpatient programs help you build a strong recovery through a therapeutic community. They create a tranquil environment and offer experiences to help you develop coping skills and confidence to stay substance-free. In some cases, you’ll have access to experiences ranging from equine therapy to yoga, art, and music therapy.
Outpatient care provides addiction treatment in a community-based setting that meets several times a week. Outpatient programs can be more or less intensive. You can also “step up” or “step down” in intensity depending on your individual recovery needs. Since you’ll continue to live at home during the program, make sure you have some support to lean on.
Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) doesn’t “replace one drug with another.” MAT combines FDA-approved medications like buprenorphine and naltrexone with evidence-based counseling. MAT programs can last six months to a year or even longer. MAT has been used for a number of years to treat opioid, alcohol, and tobacco use disorders.
Aftercare And Alumni Services
Aftercare and alumni programs help you to stay free of drugs and alcohol after you complete formal treatment. These programs can include counseling (group and individual) along with peer support groups. This added support can help you form social connections and discover ways to maintain a lifelong recovery.
Length Of Addiction Treatment
The sooner you seek treatment for substance use disorder, the greater your chances of achieving a successful, long-term recovery. The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) indicates that individualized treatment plans should fit your health and recovery needs.
You may see program lengths that include:
- 30 days
- 60 days
- 90 days
- 120 days
How To Pay For Treatment
Nearly all substance use disorder treatment programs in Texas accept major private insurance plans. You may also be eligible for Texas Medicaid or Texas STAR Medicaid. Both of these public programs pay for most drug and/or alcohol treatment. Also, investigate programs that offer scholarships, discounts, payment plans, and sliding-scale fees based on your ability to pay.
