Our Approach to Addiction Treatment

Our San Antonio detox center is a cutting-edge facility paving the way to a higher level of care for substance use disorders in Texas. We provide all of the advanced treatments you would expect from a medical center within the comfort of an upscale, home-like environment.

Our board certified physicians and ER/ICU trained medical staff provide round-the-clock medical care and withdrawal symptom management, allowing patients to safely and effectively rid their bodies of toxic substances. Through a combination of IV and oral medications, we help prevent and minimize withdrawal symptoms such as insomnia, anxiety, irritability, seizures, high blood pressure, depression, and more.

We also offer biopsychosocial evaluations and mental health counseling to assist patients in identifying the next steps in their recovery journey—including the transition to an inpatient treatment center or outpatient rehabilitation following detox.

Why Medication Assisted Treatment is Important

The detox process can be intimidating to those needing care for substance use disorders. There are many side effects associated with withdrawal, including dehydration, vomiting, seizures, delirium, hallucinations, agitation, paranoia, and more.

For this reason, it is never advised to try to detox on your own without medical supervision, especially for those with alcohol addiction and other severe forms of physical substance dependence. In many cases, this can lead to life threatening side effects.

By undergoing detox under the care of experienced medical professionals, individuals are able to safely break their physical dependence on their drug of choice and prepare themselves mentally and emotionally to receive treatment for addiction and mental health issues in the future.

Our San Antonio detox center provides an unparalleled patient experience in substance abuse treatment and addiction treatment services. If you are seeking addiction treatment, give us a week and we will give you your life back.

About Our Detox Facility

When patients come to our San Antonio detox center, we want them to feel welcomed, supportive, and safe. We have designed our facility to maximize patient comfort during the withdrawal process, which often triggers many unpleasant mental and physical side effects.

We offer private bedrooms with queen beds, televisions, and free WiFi. Unlike other treatment centers, we allow the use of personal electronics, such as cellphones and computers, and encourage patients to reach out to their loved ones for support during treatment.

Meals are ordered from local restaurants, and patients have their choice of multiple menus to accommodate dietary preferences and restrictions. We also offer private storage for personal items.


About the Gallus Method

The Gallus Method is our proprietary combination of IV and oral medication for withdrawal symptom management. Utilizing intravenous medication and hydration allows us to supply much needed symptom relief quicker and more effectively than by taking the oral route alone.

In addition to medication management, we also conduct a tailored biopsychosocial evaluation that identifies each patient’s next steps and resources needed to achieve long-term recovery. We aren’t only interested in helping our patients get sober—but in helping them build stable foundations for meaningful and fulfilled lives post treatment.

Is Medical Detox Right for You?

Inpatient medical detox is the first, crucial step in a patient starting their recovery journey. Individuals are unable to fully commit themselves to the recovery process if they still experience substance cravings and untreated mental health issues. In addition, most inpatient and outpatient treatment programs will not admit until a person is sober and medically stable.

If you find yourself unable to stop using drugs or alcohol on your own, or have been abusing substances for a prolonged period of time, then you may have a physical or psychological dependence. If that is the case, a medical detox is your best next step. Under the care of an experienced medical team and dedicated case manager, you will be able to safely withdraw and start your journey to building a healthy and meaningful sober life.
