Alcohol And Drug Detox Programs

Often called the “first step” in drug and alcohol recovery, detox programs provide medication and support to help you overcome physical withdrawal symptoms. Detox should include medical supervision and can also include crisis counseling. Most detox programs last three to four days, but can last up to a week or longer.

Inpatient Addiction Treatment

If you need a substance-free living environment to start your recovery, an inpatient or residential rehab program will provide it. Inpatient treatment offers 24-hour support and care. Residential rehab programs offer evidence-based counseling including cognitive behavioral therapy and others like motivational interviewing.

Residential treatment also offers holistic, wraparound services and can serve special needs, including dual diagnosis, gender- and age-specific programs, programs for pregnant and parenting women, and trauma survivors.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment programs provide services in the community. If you want to continue to live at home while attending treatment, outpatient treatment is a good option. Combining evidence-based therapy with peer support and sober living activities, outpatient programs can last 10 to 12 weeks.

Programs can be more or less intensive depending on how often they meet and how many hours they include. Outpatient programs that meet daily are often called partial hospitalization programs (PHP). An intensive outpatient program (IOP) is another option that meets frequently.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Using FDA-approved medications along with evidence-based counseling, medication-assisted treatment (MAT) targets opioid and alcohol use disorders. MAT medications can include naltrexone, methadone, and buprenorphine.

All MAT programs provide peer support groups along with counseling. MAT programs can last six months to a year or longer in the case of opioid use disorders.

Aftercare And Alumni Services

Aftercare and alumni services provide a continuum of care after you finish rehab. Recovery is a lifelong process and ongoing counseling and peer group support can help you cope with life’s ups and downs and prevent relapse. This may include 12-step meetings, peer mentorship, recovery coaching, or sober-living housing.

Length Of Addiction Treatment

The NIDA (National Institute on Drug Abuse) recommends that drug and alcohol treatment plans should be individualized, including treatment length.

Treatment programs may have different lengths in Texas, including:

  • 30 days
  • 60 days
  • 90 days
  • 120 days

The sooner you can obtain treatment, the better your chances of long-term recovery.

How To Pay For Treatment

The majority of substance use disorder treatment programs in Texas accept payments from major private insurance programs. Texas Medicaid and STAR Medicaid also provide reimbursement for drug/alcohol treatment, including residential care, medication-assisted treatment, and counseling services.
