Announcing the new Gallus Medical Detox Center in Houston

Written by James Bryant | Updated on Nov 1, 2023

Announcing the Grand Opening of Gallus Medical Detox Centers in Houston, Texas

We are thrilled to announce the newest addition to the Gallus Medical Detox Centers family: our state-of-the-art facility in Houston, Texas. With successful centers operating in Denver, Phoenix, and Dallas, we are eager to extend our unparalleled inpatient detoxification treatment to the Houston community.

The Gallus Method

Gallus Medical Detox Centers have carved a niche in providing superior inpatient detoxification treatments. Founded by Dr. Patrick Gallus, our centers use the proprietary, evidence-based Gallus Method. This method was developed out of concern for the outdated and sometimes hazardous detoxification techniques prevalent in many centers nationwide. We prioritize patient safety, comfort, and evidence-based practices to guide individuals smoothly through the detoxification process.

Why Choose Gallus in Houston?

Our team boasts board-certified physicians who have extensive experience in both critical care and addiction. Their unique understanding of pharmacokinetics (how drugs move within the body), combined with expertise in managing co-occurring disorders and other physical illnesses, sets them apart. At Gallus, we recognize the individuality of each patient and, hence, provide individualized and evidence-based plans.

Key Features of Gallus:

  • Accreditation: We are proud to be Joint Commission accredited at our Denver, Dallas, and Phoenix locations and offer ASAM Level 3.7. 
  • Comfortable Detox: Our centers utilize both IV and oral medication protocols to manage withdrawal symptoms, ensuring patients undergo the detox process as comfortably as possible.
  • Safety First: With both cardiac and video monitoring, we ensure the highest level of patient safety. Daily physician visits are a staple.
  • 24/7 Medical Staffing: Our highly qualified nurses, equipped with detox and intensive care experience, are available round the clock to care for our patients.
  • Luxurious Comfort: We offer both private and semi-private rooms to properly accommodate our patients’ needs.  Our private rooms are designed to provide the ultimate comfort with a queen bed, free secure WiFi, personal electronic use, and a 40” TV.
  • Holistic Evaluation: Every patient undergoes a tailored biopsychosocial evaluation, which helps in determining their next steps toward long-term recovery.

The Gallus Protocols: Pioneering Excellence in Detoxification

Gallus Medical Detox Centers has always been at the forefront of innovation when it comes to detoxification protocols. Our commitment to patient safety, comfort, and success in the detox journey has led to the development of several pioneering protocols that are now cornerstones of our approach. Here’s an in-depth look at what sets our treatments apart:

The Benzodiazepine Taper Protocol:

Given the sharp increase in benzodiazepine consumption – with 15% of the US population having taken it and 6% having abused sedative-hypnotic agents – our team introduced the Benzodiazepine Taper Program. This is not just a detox plan; it’s a comprehensive care approach. By tapering the consumption of benzodiazepines, we provide a seamless detoxification journey. This systematic decrease allows patients to center their energies on their health and wellness without abrupt cessation, which can lead to severe withdrawal symptoms.

The Accelerated Micro Induction (AMI) Protocol:

In light of the surge in patients testing positive for fentanyl, our AMI Protocol is a game-changer. With a commitment to addressing withdrawal symptoms even before initiating detox, we perform a micro-induction of Buprenorphine to slowly and gently transition patients away from the opioids they have been misusing while managing their symptoms and avoiding precipitated withdrawal. This unique approach results in 42% fewer withdrawal symptoms and an average of one less day in our facility. It’s no exaggeration to say that our AMI detox is unparalleled in its success.

The High-Dose Methadone Protocol:

While methadone detoxification often poses challenges due to its associated side effects, our protocol defies this trend. We proudly offer detox for patients regardless of their methadone consumption level. By using the Gallus method, we ensure that symptoms remain minimal, allowing patients to transition smoothly toward recovery.

The IV and Oral Medication Protocol:

Our proprietary IV therapy for drug detox is utilized for single-substance and polysubstance addictions.  This works to mitigate withdrawal symptoms and sets patients on a clear path to recovery. Whether it’s alcohol paired with other drugs or benzodiazepines coupled with opiates, our protocol tackles them effectively.

NAD+ IV Therapy For Drug and Alcohol Detox:

One of our most cutting-edge treatments, the NAD+ IV therapy, is designed to rejuvenate the brain at the cellular level. As an IV infusion treatment, it stimulates neuron functions, paving the way for cell regeneration and shielding the brain from cellular damage. The result? Enhanced cognitive function, improved memory, mental clarity, restored energy levels, and an overall boost in brain performance.

At Gallus Medical Detox Centers, our protocols are not mere treatments; they’re a testament to our dedication to excellence. We understand the complexities of addiction and have crafted our methods to offer the best possible care. As we open our doors in Houston, we bring these unparalleled treatments to serve yet another community in its fight against addiction.

We invite you to experience the Gallus difference in Houston. Whether you or a loved one is seeking help, rest assured that with Gallus Medical Detox Centers, you are taking a step towards a safe, comfortable, and effective detoxification journey. Our legacy in Denver, Phoenix, and Dallas is a testament to our commitment, and we’re excited to bring that same dedication to Houston.

Join us as we usher in a new era of medical detox in Houston, Texas. Your path to recovery starts with Gallus.
