Sovereign Health of Texas offers different levels of care for those seeking dual diagnosis treatment. A patient’s level of care depends on the substance abuse and mental health issues they are attending to. Over the course of their stay with us, patients may move through several different levels of care. We offer the following levels of care at our El Paso facility:
Detox comes from the word “detoxification.” It is the process by which addicts eliminate the toxic substances that have built up in their bodies over the course of their addiction. Because detox may be accompanied by painful and at times dangerous withdrawal symptoms, it is done under careful medical supervision. Medications may be prescribed to ease these symptoms. The length of the detox program varies based on the abused substance, the quantities taken, and how long the abuse lasted.
Residential Treatment (RTC)
During residential treatment, patients attend to their recovery in a safe, controlled environment. This affords them an opportunity to live in a communal setting with others who are facing the same challenges. Bonding with other patients can be immensely beneficial to the recovery process. Our El Paso residential facility is scenically located adjacent to Franklin Mountains State Park. A dedicated staff provides supervision and crisis intervention is available 24 hours a day. Stays in residential treatment may last 30 to 90 days but can last longer depending on the patient and their circumstances.
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
While participating in the partial hospitalization program, dual diagnosis patients are able to live independently while still receiving intensive treatment. Patients visit our facility to receive treatment services at least five days a week for several hours each day. PHP can provide a helpful transition from inpatient treatment helping to reduce the risk of relapse and a return to residential care.
Intensive Outpatient Therapy (IOP)
Intensive outpatient therapy treatment programs are designed to accommodate the patient’s schedule. This includes options to receive treatment on nights and weekends. This gives them the chance to live independently, work or attend school. Patients continue to have access to the services provided at our other levels of care including group therapy, individualized therapy, cognitive remediation and medication management. Patients often transition to intensive outpatient therapy after more intensive levels of care to help them stay on the path of long-term recovery.
