Men’s Medical Detox Program in Austin, Texas
Many men avoid getting help because they’re worried about detox. We pride ourselves on providing a comfortable, pain-free detoxification experience that includes full medical supervision.
The Need for Medically Supervised Detoxification
Many men who come to The Last Resort have tried to detox on their own. At-home detox may seem like a simple solution, but those who have attempted it know that it’s not easy. Often, the withdrawal symptoms associated with detoxification are powerful. They include:
In severe cases, those dependent on benzodiazepines and alcohol may be at risk for hallucinations, delirium, and even seizures. These symptoms continue for several days, and without medical intervention, it’s possible for those attempting at-home detox to relapse or require hospitalization. At The Last Resort, we have designed a proven, comfortable approach to detoxification. Through medical supervision and evidence-based care, we empower clients to end their dependence on drugs and alcohol.
Proven Care in a Comfortable Setting
Detox doesn’t have to be daunting. The Last Resort’s medically supervised program ensures that all traces of a substance are removed from your body. During this process, our experts will monitor your condition, ask about any symptoms you may be experiencing, and adjust the amount of medication you receive accordingly.
Our approach is rooted in evidence-based practices and based on medical guidance. We consider several factors when creating your individual detox plan, including the length of time you’ve been using the substance, how frequently you used it, how much you took at a time, any co-occurring disorders, your medical history, your weight, and whether you consumed multiple substances at once. Each of these variables informs our therapeutic approach to ensure maximum effectiveness.
Preparing for What Comes Next
The other concern that men have about detox is what comes next. Fear of the unknown can be an obstacle to recovery, but at The Last Resort, your treatment plan is clearly laid out. From your first phone call with us, you’ll have answers to all of your questions. Once detox is complete, you will progress to the next level of care. Most of our clients attend residential treatment, while others move on to outpatient programming. No matter which path you choose, you can be assured that The Last Resort team will offer ongoing support.
Our clinicians provide clarity and transparency throughout the entire treatment process. You’ll never be in the dark about our recommendations, what your insurance covers, or how much time you should spend at our center. With flexible programs and compassionate staff, The Last Resort’s top priority is always you: your well-being, your health, and your happiness.
