You can’t control your addiction if you’re intoxicated, but it can be difficult, dangerous, even deadly to stop alcohol or drug use on your own. At Willow Springs, we will medically monitor your detox to ensure you start rehab safely and on the right foot.
If you want to end your alcohol or drug abuse but can’t stop on your own because there are too many reminders and temptations, inpatient rehab might be right for you. With inpatient rehab at Willow, you live at the rehab center, your therapeutic and basic needs are provided onsite.
Dual diagnosis is given when substance abuse disorder co-occurs with a mental health disorder, such as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, or bipolar disorder. Willow Springs checks for both at intake to improve the chances of long-term recovery.
Willow Springs provides many tools to achieve long-term sobriety, including the 12-step program of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. While not a treatment for addiction itself, working the steps—acknowledging your alcohol or drug abuse, resolving to end it, making amends to those you’ve wronged, and assisting others with their addictions—helps many get and stay sober.
While faith-based 12-step programs help many, Willow Springs knows that others want science-based plans that teach self-reliance. SMART Recovery (Self-Management and Recovery Training) stresses that the best way to maintain your sobriety is to understand what people, places, or things trigger a lapse.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Some people still think alcoholism and drug addiction are moral failings, although the vast majority of physicians, psychologists and empirical data disagree. What’s needed is not moral condemnation, but scientific treatment. One of the best is cognitive behavioral therapy, or CBT.

SUBSTANCE ABUSE INFORMATION
If you’re not careful, a serious prescription drug addiction could arise before you know what hit you. This is where prescription drug rehab in Texas can help. This is where prescription drug rehab in Texas can help.
Ethyl alcohol or ethanol is a socially acceptable beverage but in 2017, more people died from alcohol-related causes—alcohol poisoning, increased cancer risk, automobile accidents, heart failure, cirrhosis (and other liver damage), and violence—than opioids. For some people with alcohol use disorder, to stop drinking cold turkey can be fatal.
Freely available substances such as caffeine and nicotine are stimulants, but so are prescription medications that increase alertness, attention, and energy, both legal (Ritalin, Concerta), and illegal (cocaine, MDMA, methamphetamine). Also known as “uppers”, stimulant abuse seems to be on the rise, which sometimes follows an opioid epidemic.
Benzodiazepines or “benzos” are tranquilizers such as Valium and Xanax that are prescribed for anti-anxiety but are frequently abused alongside other drugs to intensify the high, come down from a high or to prevent withdrawal. Side effects include dizziness, slurred speech, blurred vision, and coma.
Barbiturates are depressants (Amytal, Nembutal, Seconal) that are rarely prescribed any longer—except for anesthesia, sedation, traumatic brain injury, and seizures—unless other, safer drugs aren’t effective. Despite this, their abuse continues, which can be fatal, especially in combination with other drugs such as alcohol, opioids, and benzodiazepines.
Hallucinogens are psychoactive substances that cause hallucinations, including psilocybin (“magic” mushrooms), LSD, PCP, DMT, MDMA (“ecstasy”), and ketamine. Sometimes taken as party drugs, they can produce dissociative effects, panic, paranoia, psychosis, and heart failure.
Also known as cannabis, and now legal in more than half the US states (though not under Federal law), while its health and addiction risks are hotly contested, it can cause dependency. Its use as an e-cigarette liquid for vaping (on the black market, at least) may be responsible for thousands of lung injuries and dozens of deaths.
Depressants or “downers” are any drugs or substances that slow brain activity, ease anxiety or cause drowsiness. They include alcohol, opioids, benzodiazepines, barbiturates, and marijuana, all of which can be addictive, impair physical and mental health, and lead to or cause death.
