Summer Sky - Medical Detoxification

Texas Drug and Alcohol Treatment Center, Summer Sky 

The pre-requisite to recovery is the physical separation from the alcohol or drugs. It is a very critical aspect of treating addiction. Many individuals make a mistake every day of not seeking medical attention for the symptoms of withdrawal which can be fatal. Our medical detoxification program was designed to remove the chemicals that need to be removed from the body so that an individual becomes medically stable. We believe that no one should suffer through this process and Summer Sky provides access to an adequate medical staff that specialized in detoxification. Detox is a critical part of our program.

First Stage


Detoxification - (Detox) provides a supervised withdrawal from a drug of dependence so that the severity of withdrawal symptoms and serious medical complications are reduced to a minimum. Summer Sky uses the expertise of an ABAM physician to monitor the ongoing medical needs of each patient along with Registered Nurses (RN's) and Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVN’s) twenty- four hours a day.

Medically assisted detoxification is only the first stage of addiction treatment.   Detoxification by itself does little to change long-term drug addiction. Patients are therefore encouraged to continue on in our drug treatment program following stabilization via detoxification.
