Detox - Brazos Recovery

Drug And Alcohol Detox

Brazos Recovery offers medically supervised detox for individuals requiring medical intervention to reduce side effects from withdrawal. Clients are safely detoxed from alcohol and drugs while participating in day-to-day activities and have professional support available. This is the first step in a continuum of care that ultimately leads to recovery.

What you can expect during detox

Detox helps you discontinue substance use and become medically stable. The substances you use and the symptoms you have will indicate whether or not you will be given medication to help you through withdrawal and reduce your cravings. During this period, our staff will assess your physical response to withdrawal every four hours to ensure your safety. You will not participate in groups until you are medically cleared. We encourage our patients to rest as much as possible and stay hydrated. Our staff will be there at any time if you need anything or have any questions.

Alcohol Detox

It is essential that detoxing from alcohol is treated as rigorously as other forms of drug detox. The withdrawal symptoms associated with an alcohol detox can potentially be fatal and should, therefore, always be carried out under medical supervision. If there is no effective withdrawal plan in place or enough preparation, quitting can have adverse physiological and neurological effects on the body, putting the entire detoxification process at risk.

Benzodiazepine Detox

Located at Lake Whitney, Brazos Recovery offers a central Texas solution for individuals addicted to benzodiazepine and other prescribed medications.

Heroin Detox

Heroin use has increased in the United States as a result of the increased use of prescription opioids. As with all addictions, taking that first step and starting the detox process is worrying but necessary. The detoxification stage is perhaps the most critical phase of your recovery journey.
