Addiction Rehab Programs
The drug and alcohol addiction rehab programs at San Antonio Recovery Center are specially designed for each client. Our clinical staff go to great lengths to design addiction rehab programs that meet each client’s particular needs. Our programs address each client’s unique needs from the medical and emotional, to the physical and spiritual.
The effects of substance abuse reach far beyond the client. Therefore, we strongly encourage participation from the client’s family as well as other people supportive of their recovery. We continuously ensure that our clients receive the most effective treatment available by designing addiction rehab programs that treat the entire person.
Addiction Rehab Programs and Detox
Over the course of an addiction, chemicals from the consumed substance cause the brain and body to adapt. At first, the body is unused to the presence of a substance, allowing for quick and potent highs. Over time, however, the body adjusts, and it takes more of a substance used more often to achieve the same high. As the body builds tolerance, the brain drives cravings, which in turn fuels the vicious cycle of addiction. When a physical dependency is unfulfilled, the affected person undergoes withdrawal. Withdrawal is particularly severe for heavy users, and for users of alcohol, heroin, and benzos. This severity is dangerous not only to a person’s health, but to their recovery. If a person undergoes withdrawal but has access to their substance of choice, the urge to relapse will be very strong. Withdrawal is the first, and perhaps the most difficult, roadblock to your recovery.
Since withdrawal is so severe, doctors strongly recommend against going through withdrawal alone, aka “cold turkey.” Instead, doctors recommend that patients seek detox treatment. At San Antonio Recovery Center, we offer detox programs for alcohol and heroin, for both men and women.
Detox starts with withdrawal, lasting anywhere from a few hours to a couple of days. The benefit of detox is that it takes place in a secure, medically monitored environment. Some withdrawal symptoms, like seizures or delirium tremens (for alcoholics), can be fatal if left untreated. Medical professionals monitor detox patients 24/7 to keep them comfortable and safe as their body purges the addictive substance.
At the San Antonio Recovery Center, we combine the finest models of drug and alcohol addiction treatment with dedication to our clients and customers. This dedication is reflected in our affordable pricing structure. We currently accept various health insurance plans in order to provide an excellent opportunity for recovery with our 90-day treatment program.
