Sovereign Health of El Paso offers treatment for detoxification, addiction and co-occurring disorders. Patients receive an individualized treatment plan to ensure that all of their needs are met.
Detoxification is the acute phase of rehabilitation that requires elimination of the substance from the body. This can be a very painful experience for the individual, as many states of withdrawal have physical side effects. Many individuals cannot break their addiction due to the severity of the withdrawal effects. Sovereign understands the science behind the withdrawal phase and can assisted with medications to help ease the side effects.
Depending on the substance, detoxification can take approximately 24-72 hours, and it is important to give the patient a quiet, relaxing space.
Substance abuse treatment does not end after the detoxification stage. Once the substance is completely removed from the body, treatment can begin to address the addiction. Sovereign Health of El Paso uses multiple therapy approaches to help each patient with their substance abuse disorder. Treatment modalities include individual group and family therapy as well as behavioral management to provide patients with the life tools to curb cravings and unhealthy behaviors.
