Substance abuse disorders and addiction are progressive mental health diseases that are difficult to recover from without help from Texas addiction treatment centers. Addiction makes you compulsively abuse drugs and alcohol. You continue to abuse drugs or alcohol even if you want to stop or experience damaging consequences.

Addiction changes your brain chemistry and decision-making skills. Drugs and alcohol are neurotransmitter inhibitors, which cause your brain to release a rush of neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin. This process changes your pleasure and reward center, making your brain dependent on drugs and alcohol in order to release neurotransmitters. You can experience intense cravings and withdrawal when you stop using, making it difficult to get through drug and alcohol detox programs without help.

Addiction Therapy Programs

When you become addicted or physically dependent on drugs and/or alcohol, it takes time to fully recover because addiction can diminish your physical and emotional health. The first step in recovery is detoxing from your substance of choice. Withdrawal symptoms can begin within 24 hours of your last use and continue for several days.

Some of the most common withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Aches and pains
  • Digestive issues, stomach cramps, and vomiting
  • Seizures, disorientation, and confusion
  • Exhaustion and insomnia
  • Mood changes, such as anxiety and depression

Texas addiction treatment centers can help alleviate withdrawal symptoms during a medical drug detox program, making it easier to withdrawal. Following detox, Texas rehab centers offer both inpatient and outpatient drug rehab programs. Inpatient programs can last anywhere from 28 days to more than 90 days. Outpatient programs are less time-intensive and allow you to continue working or going to school during treatment.

Both inpatient and outpatient Texas addiction treatment centers use evidence-based treatments. Evidence-based treatments are proven to be effective on prior patients undergoing treatment for the same disorder after extensive studies and research. Some of the most successful and effective evidence-based treatments at Right Step addiction treatment centers include:

  • Dialectic behavioral therapy
  • Medication assisted therapy
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Relapse prevention education

After Care

Before you are discharged, your treatment team will work with you to create a strong after-care plan. This can include outlining your coping strategies, setting up medical and mental health appointments, and enrolling in an outpatient program.

Inpatient treatment centers can also help arrange after-care, which can include connecting you with outpatient rehab programs and community-based resources. Peer led support groups and 12 step programs, such as AA and NA, can provide you with a recovery-focused network following treatment.


Our treatment programs are based on the knowledge that drug addiction is a brain disease impacting individuals physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
