Inpatient Chemical Dependency Treatment Program

Inpatient Chemical Dependency Treatment Program

Chemical Dependency Treatment in El Paso, Texas

For people who want to overcome the problems alcohol or other drugs are causing in their lives, we offer an integrated evidence-based 12-step mode of treatment. We focus on identifying, developing and practicing lifestyle changes necessary for staying free of drugs and alcohol.

Because substance abuse and dependency can include mental health issues as well, we offer dual diagnosis treatment. Additionally, we offer the only child/adolescent chemical dependency rehabilitation program in our area. Inpatient chemical dependency treatment is individualized for each patient, taking their unique needs and skills into consideration.

We are proud to have some of the only physicians in El Paso certified to offer Suboxone® treatment for opiate withdrawal or other pain management/detoxification needs.

We believe abstinence from substances will put the disease in remission, and dedication to a strong program will provide protection from relapse.

We provide a dedicated inpatient milieu at our main location for those detoxing from substances or in need of chemical dependency rehabilitation. We also provide this program on an outpatient basis at our main location. Our main location also offers adolescent substance abuse outpatient services for young people who are beginning to experience problems related to substance abuse and are in need of treatment.

Our new eastside outpatient location also provides a dual diagnosis program for adults who may be struggling with both substance abuse and mental health problems.
