Addiction Care In Hempstead, Texas

While looking for an addiction treatment program, it’s important to find ones that include individualized recovery approaches. Programs with these personalized treatment plans offer targeted services that fit your needs, such as dual diagnosis care.

Detox Programs

You might have a hard time dealing with the withdrawal process if you end up having severe symptoms. A medically monitored detox program provides you with support to help you get through withdrawal.

This kind of program only runs for a short time, such as a week or more, but it’s an important part of helping you prepare for treatment.


Inpatient rehab programs offer help for those who have more severe alcohol or drug addictions. These programs are done in facilities that have around-the-clock supervision for safety purposes.

During an inpatient program, doctors, nurses, therapists, and other professionals provide a wide-range of services to help you recover, such as behavioral therapy, treatment for underlying mental health disorders, relapse prevention, and life skills training.

Outpatient Drug Rehab in Hempstead

Outpatient rehab programs provide help for those who have a less severe drug or alcohol addiction. With this approach, you can still work or handle other day-to-day responsibilities while going through rehab.

During outpatient treatment, you only go to a clinic for therapy sessions instead of staying in a facility for weeks at a time.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) programs offer help for individuals who have an alcohol or opioid use disorder.

This kind of specialized approach involves taking medication, such as buprenorphine or methadone, that can ease symptoms of withdrawal and lower the risk of relapse. Therapy sessions are also provided.

Aftercare Planning And Services

Aftercare services are offered at some facilities for those who complete a rehab program. These services provide ongoing support that can be valuable in helping you remain sober on a long-term basis.

Some of the services you might find with aftercare planning include sober-living housing, peer support services, and recovery coaching.

How To Pay For Alcohol Or Drug Rehab

Your health insurance plan might include partial or full coverage that you can use for rehab programs and services.

You can get detailed information on your coverage from your insurance provider and the addiction rehab center you go to for treatment to determine how much is covered.
