Central Texas Rehab

Addiction comes in many different forms, and there are many different ways to approach overcoming it. While some people may be able to control their addictions on their own, many people get caught up in a cycle of refraining and relapsing.

Unfortunately, getting addicted to drugs or alcohol is all too easy. It’s an enticing trap, providing a quick reward — and a consequence that isn’t distinct until it’s too late. We’ve seen it too many times and have devoted ourselves to helping those trapped in the cycle of addiction.

Riverwalk Ranch extends its drug rehabilitation services to those looking for a Central Texas Rehab. We’ve seen substance abuse in many forms and treated many at our alcohol and drug rehab.

Understanding Substance Abuse

Substance abuse is a pattern of excessive drug use that is detrimental to oneself and often the people around them. It includes both psychological and physical dependence to an abused chemical. These dependencies make it incredibly hard for the addicted person to abstain and recover.

You may be asking yourself whether the substances you use are actually problematic or not. The truth is that any substance can be problematic, even one’s that aren’t “hard” drugs. It can be hard to draw the line between casual, recreational usage and abuse.

Harmful, problematic substance abuse typically includes:

  • Hangovers or withdrawals
  • Failure to hold responsibilities
  • Risky or sneaky usage
  • Related health issues
  • Difficulty controlling usage
  • Motor and cognitive impairment
  • Social issues with friends, family, or colleagues

Commonly abused substances include:

  • Caffeine
  • Tobacco
  • Alcohol
  • Marijuana
  • Methamphetamine
  • Cocaine
  • Hallucinogens
  • MDMA

Texas is the Drug Smuggling Hub of the US

Because of how illegal drugs are smuggled into the United States from Mexico, Texas has become a hub for drug abuse. Drug cartels and other drug trafficking groups are on the rise with constantly evolving, incredibly intricate ways to bring the drugs across the Texas border.

The amount of drugs that are seized along the 1254-mile border that travels along the Rio Grande River exceeds that of any other US state.

This border area, a large portion of which is open and incapable of being continuously monitored by border enforcement agencies, is extensively used by drug trafficking organizations (DTOs) to smuggle illicit drugs into the United States. Significant quantities of methamphetamine, cocaine, heroin, and marijuana are smuggled from Mexico into Texas, states the National Drug Intelligence Center.

Drug & Alcohol Abuse in Texas

Alcohol is the most abused drug in Texas, according to the Substance Abuse Trends in Texas report of June 2014. Roughly three-fourths of high school students have used alcohol. Nearly a quarter of high school students reported binge drinking.

Cocaine and crack usage seem to have decreased as new users are declining. Still, nearly 10 percent of Texas high school students have tried cocaine.

Indicators show that heroin use is a growing problem among teens and young adults. While the numbers are much lower than alcohol or cocaine, the highly addictive and dangerous properties of opioids like heroin poise a serious problem for Texans.

Laws pertaining to “Doctor shopping” has led to a decline in fraudulent prescriptions to benzodiazepines and opioids. However, prescription drug abuse continues as the legacy of things like the “Houston Cocktail” consisting of muscle relaxers, Xanax, and hydrocodone left a wake of addiction behind.

Alcohol & Drug Rehabilitation Treatment Programs

Drug Rehab generally refers to supervised rehabilitation designed to help people stop using drugs or alcohol, giving them the tools they need to live a healthy life. The type of rehab that’s best for you or your loved one depends on the severity of their addiction; there is no one-size-fits-all solution.

The various drug rehabilitation options offered at Riverwalk Ranch and other rehabs include:

Detox: The first step of addiction treatment — helping one through several different substance withdrawal symptoms as they initially stop their substance usage. Going through drug detox properly is perhaps the most crucial part of recovery as drug withdrawals can be accompanied by deadly consequences.

Inpatient Rehab: Inpatient rehab refers to treatment where a patient stays at their rehab facility overnight, receiving 24/7 help and supervision. This typically lasts a minimum of 28 days, though longer stays are typically more effective since recovery happens over time. Patients in inpatient rehab receive the highest level of care with all treatment modalities and therapies.

Partial Hospitalization: A partial hospitalization program (PHP) is a part-time treatment that includes treatment 3-5 days a week, 4-6 hours a day. Patients live at home but are asked to spend a large portion of their daytime in the treatment center. PHP typically follows inpatient rehab, gradually moving patients towards the outside world; though, some patients choose to move from inpatient rehab to outpatient rehab.

Outpatient Rehab: Outpatient rehab is the most flexible addiction treatment program available. Patients may come in 2-3 times a week for a fews hours at a time. Typically, patients at this point have already established the important groundwork for recovery, allowing them to live soberly outside of the rehab facility. The continued treatment and care further establishes already learned skills and allows patients to continue connecting with their addiction clinicians and friends in recovery.
