Overcoming addiction to drugs and alcohol is no small feat. Because substance abuse causes the brain to become dependent on the substance, help is needed on the path to sobriety. When the time comes to seek treatment for addiction, detox is the first step towards recovery. Fort Behavioral Health’s drug and alcohol detox program in Texas provides a medically supervised detox with 24/7 clinical care. By safely managing withdrawal symptoms, our program sets patients towards recovery.
The cycle of addiction is hard to break, especially alone. Substance abuse leads to tolerance, which in turn leads to dependence and addiction. Addiction leads to changes in the brain which can cause uncontrollable urges. Because of this, those abusing substances might have difficulty maintaining healthy relationships or employment.
