    Inpatient Care

    When a patient checks into University Hospital, inpatient care takes place. Patients undergo treatment that requires detoxification and counseling round the clock. While outpatient treatments are available, as the first phase in recovery, inpatient care is suggested. Intensive and thorough rehabilitation sets patients on the road to a drug-free life.

    Dual-Diagnosis

    A dual-diagnosis describes two medical issues that are happening at the same time. They may or may not be related. Over 50% of people with an addiction in Texas have another mental health condition. Screening for both addiction and any untreated mental health issue is essential, and individually managed by University Hospital.

    Outpatient Program

    In outpatient programs at University Hospital, the San Antonio resident can live with their family while continuing with their job or studies. Treatment includes educating the patient on drug abuse, medications, and counseling sessions at the individual or group level.

    Residential

    Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient’s individual requirements.
