Medical Detox Program in San Antonio, TX

When using illegal drugs, there is no way to know for sure what you are ingesting. Fatal overdoses have become all too common in San Antonio, most recently with a case that gained national attention with the imprisonment of an arrested fentanyl dealer.2 One pill can contain doses that are not safe for anyone to take. This is how they become fatal.

For those who have become addicted to drugs in the San Antonio area, there is help available through professional medical detox programs, like the ones at SARC on Culebra or Cagnon Road.

Admitting that you have a problem and getting help are important first steps. Signs that detox may be right for you include:

  • You use a prescribed drug for recreational use
  • You often prescription shop
  • You are engaging in risky behavior
  • Your family and friends have expressed concern about your substance use
  • You have intense cravings for drugs or alcohol that you cannot control
  • You have tried quitting but have been unsuccessful
  • Your work or school performance is noticeably affected
  • You have lost interest in activities and spending time with people

In addition to medical detox, SARC offers residential, intensive outpatient, partial hospitalization programs, outpatient, and alumni programs.
