Alcohol and Drug Medical Detox
Expert Medical Detox with a Medical Doctor and 24/7 Nursing Staff
Many individuals struggling with addiction are reluctant to get help at an alcohol and drug detox center because they are apprehensive about the withdrawal process. At Promises Austin, we take the mystery and fear out of alcohol and drug detox so that you can take the first courageous step toward healing. Speak Confidentially with a Promises Recovery Advisor at 844-874-5491.
Using the latest evidence-based approaches and state-of-the-art medications such as Suboxone and Vivitrol, our medical detox team is able to curb the discomfort of withdrawal from drugs and alcohol and minimize drug cravings. You will meet daily with a medical doctor and receive care from experienced and compassionate nurses 24 hours a day. Medical detox typically takes from 3 to 7 days, but will last as long or as short as medically indicated to ensure your safety and comfort.
Recognizing that detox is a physical and emotional process and that some clients may not be able to fully apply themselves to normally scheduled programming while in detox, clients are not required to participate in therapeutic groups or other programming. However, if you are ready to begin your clinical treatment process and are cleared by our medical team, we encourage you to begin attending groups and therapy sessions during detox.
We invite you to take this time to rest and recuperate. We use a combination of traditional and alternative approaches such as massage and acupuncture to make detox as comfortable as possible. You can also take advantage of our flat-screen televisions, a recovery library lined with 12-Step literature and therapeutic books, a steam shower, a Jacuzzi and a swimming pool.
You Are Not Alone
If not treated medically, withdrawing from some drugs, such as alcohol and benzodiazepines (Ativan, Valium, Xanax) or prescription narcotics (OxyContin, Lortab), can cause serious medical complications, which may include seizure, stroke, and in some cases, even death. If you or your family member have been drinking heavily or abusing drugs for a significant period of time, we urge that you not try to quit or detox abruptly on your own.
Start your recovery off right. Promises Austin alcohol and drug detox center is a luxury retreat in the beautiful Texas Hill Country. Our peaceful environment lets you focus on your recovery so you can stop using drugs and alcohol and begin the extraordinary life ahead of you.
