There is more than one type of program for substance abuse treatment.
- Intensive Outpatient
- Partial Day
- Residential Inpatient
Detoxification from alcohol and any mood altering chemicals is the first phase of treatment. Detox MUST be done under the medical supervision of a licensed MD. Today, there are state-of-the-art medications available to ease and minimize the cravings and effects of withdrawal.
An outpatient facility offers similar services as partial day and inpatient except clients do not stay at the facility overnight.
Intensive outpatient (IOP) generally offers 1 hour of treatment 3 days a week. Group therapy includes skills training, relapse prevention, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and motivational enhancement therapy (MET). A qualified addiction specialist, trained in the various therapies, leads the sessions. The difference between Outpatient and Intensive Outpatient is how many times per week a client is required to attend.
Residential inpatient treatment is a type of therapy where the individual lives in the center and receives treatment over a course of several weeks or months. These live-in facilities specialize in expert care for chemical dependency, alcoholism, as well any underlying psychological problems. Because almost half of all people suffering from substance abuse are also suffering from a co-existing mental health condition, many facilities offer some type of dual therapy that addresses both.
Texas State Services
Some people need to access publicly-funded recovery programs and services. The vast majority of these public resources are available at the state and or county level, rather than locally. Houston does have some local programs listed below.
The Texas Department of State Health Services Mental Health and Substance Abuse Division funds providers of mental health and substance abuse services who then assist those in need of such services. Learn how to get help for substance abuse issues and what to expect during the process.
