Overcoming Addiction Is Possible with Effective Addiction Treatment in Texas. Our Drug & Alcohol Rehab Guide Can Help You Find the Care You Need.

Known for its legendary cowboy culture, diverse landscapes, bustling cities, and Tex-Mex cuisine, Texas is a world all its own. Unfortunately, the state’s proximity to Mexico – part of what gives it such a lively culture – also means that it’s the first stop for all manner of illicit substances, including methamphetamine, cocaine, heroin, and marijuana.[1]

If you or a loved one is struggling with drug or alcohol addiction, our community offers helpful resources and evidence-based interventions for long-lasting sobriety. These treatment solutions can help you find the mental health and substance used disorder care you need to take the next step toward your healthier life.

Types of Addiction Treatment Available in Texas


Medical detoxification is often the first step to manage the severe withdrawal that occurs when you cut back or stop taking substances. This experience can be uncomfortable, or even dangerous, but medical detox provides supervision and medication-assisted solutions to keep you as safe and comfortable as possible.

Residential Treatment Programs

Inpatient treatment services offer intensive treatment with the support of other peers in recovery and the supervision of healthcare professionals. With structure and accountability, you can focus completely on your recovery and mental health.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

PHP takes place after a detox program or residential program. This treatment is full time and takes place in an outpatient setting for five days per week to transition into more flexible treatment programs.

Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP)

An IOP is a step between PHP and outpatient, allowing you to balance your treatment sessions with day-to-day responsibilities. It’s more intensive than outpatient but without full-time hospitalization.

Outpatient Treatment

Standard outpatient treatment offers flexibility with weekly treatment sessions for support as you transition into everyday life. You can attend treatment sessions at your scheduled time while balancing home, school, or work responsibilities.

Aftercare: Long-Term Recovery Journey

Aftercare is the final step before transitioning into sober life. It’s a long-term program with support groups, 12-step groups, accountability pathways, and relapse prevention plans to give you the tools to manage your continued recovery.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Dual diagnosis is the presence of a mental disorder and a substance use disorder that occur together. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), people with mental illnesses are more likely to experience a substance use disorder than those who do not.[2]

Music Therapy Within Drug and Alcohol Rehab Programs

Music therapy is an experiential therapy intervention guided by therapy professionals. Music offers an opportunity for introspection and recovery through the expression of writing, playing, and performing music.

Choosing a Texas Treatment Center

Though it may be tempting to try to overcome addiction on your own, a Texas drug rehab center offers a full continuum of care as a safe haven for your long-term recovery. With evidence-based therapies and holistic treatments within a comprehensive care plan, your recovery is guided from detox to aftercare.
