Level of Care Offered for Alcohol and Drug Detox

Many families face a growing crisis of teen drug abuse and alcohol abuse. The developing brain of a young adult is particularly vulnerable to addiction. Younger people require specialized teen treatment centers. And that's exactly what you will find at Clearfork Academy.

The first step in the healing process is either medically supervised detoxification or a safe, supportive stabilization period, depending upon the treatment needs.

Family members naturally worry about the well-being of their teens during detox and the recovery process. Rest assured that your child's welfare is paramount to us, too, and our medical professionals will monitor their health 24 hours a day. Our individualized detox treatment plans are stringently supervised.

Residential Care

Once they've detoxed and rid themselves of drug and alcohol toxins, your teen transitions to one of our beautiful residential centers with its scenic views of Eagle Mountain Lake or the rolling grasslands of Cleburne, Texas. The residential program for substance addiction includes education, holistic therapies, and outdoor activities.

Intensive Outpatient Program - IOP

We offer in-person and virtual IOP programs for teens who need the flexibility to maintain educational, extracurricular, and family commitments. Our intensive outpatient treatment program provides the support and guidance young adults need during alcohol or drug rehab to recover from substance abuse and mental health conditions.

The Detox and Treatment Process

Our detox and treatment process for teens helps young people overcome dependence on drugs and alcohol and achieve long-term recovery.

With medical oversight, drugs are eliminated from the body, while withdrawal is carefully managed with medication-assisted treatment, MAT.

 After detox, your teen can enter our treatment program: individual counseling, group therapy, and family therapy are combined with experiential treatments, including adventure, art, and music therapy.

During treatment, we address the underlying causes of your teen's addiction and help them discover the skills needed for sobriety. We believe successful treatment combines the commitment and effort of our dedicated team with a personal journey of insight and revelation for your teen.

The Goal of Detox Treatment

At Clearfork Academy, the ultimate goal of our teen alcohol and drug detox program is to help young adults build a solid Christ-based foundation for lasting recovery.

Withdrawal symptoms can make a sustained recovery challenging. Relapse is frequently precipitated by the uncomfortable physical and psychological experience of withdrawal. However, as substance abuse treatment at our teen drug rehab and teen alcohol rehab begins with a supervised medical detox, withdrawal symptoms are minimized.

The psychological aspects are further addressed by our mental health services, guaranteeing that your teen's addiction treatment protects their physical and mental health and optimizes their ability to maintain sobriety.

Preparation for Detox and Treatment

A teen's alcohol or drug detox needs careful preparation. It is a crucial step in their recovery journey and involves taking the necessary measures to ensure they experience safe and effective detoxification.

Our team of medical professionals tailors the detox process to your teen's specific needs. They thoroughly appraise physical, psychological, and emotional requirements and a family's practical situation.

Your teen's first days at our picturesque treatment center prepare them for all that is to come: new friendships, powerful self-discoveries, gaining new skills, addressing co-occurring mental illness, and beginning a new life of health and wellness.

The Development of Alcohol and Drug Addiction in Teens

Younger people are highly susceptible to the negative impact of substance abuse. Adolescence is a crucial stage of development, and alcohol or drug use causes life-threatening impairments to a teen's health.

Reasons teens abuse drugs and alcohol include:

  • Abuse and trauma
  • Environmental factors include easy access to prescription drugs, alcohol, and other illicit substances, drug misuse by other loved ones, and tension at home or school
  • Genetic predisposition if other family members have a substance use disorder
  • Mental health problems like anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression, and other co-occurring issues
  • Peer pressure that leads to binge drinking and substance abuse
  • Stress

Substance use disorder causes long-lasting harm to a teen's body and mind. When a teen uses drugs or alcohol, the physical, emotional, and social problems it causes can affect the entire family.

FAQ about Detox For Teens

Below are some commonly-asked questions about Clearfork Academy and the typical teen experience during treatment. If you don’t see your question below, please click here to see all FAQs or reach out to us directly for more information.

What are the symptoms of drug withdrawal in teens?

Teenagers going through alcohol or drug withdrawal experience symptoms like:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia
  • Irritability
  • Muscle pain
  • Nausea
  • Sweating
  • Tremors
  • Vomiting

The specific symptoms and their severity vary depending on the drug used. Your teen must receive medical supervision during withdrawal, as some symptoms can be life-threatening.

What Types of Drugs do Teens Typically Detox From?

Teenagers may detox from various substances, including:

  • Alcohol
  • Opioids - like heroin and prescription painkillers
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Marijuana
  • Prescription drugs
  • Stimulants - like cocaine and methamphetamine

Opioids lead to severe physical dependence and withdrawal symptoms and, like stimulants, have a high addiction potential.

Alcohol, marijuana, and benzodiazepines are also suitable for teen drug detox.

What Is the duration of Drug Detox for Teens?

Each detox plan is individually created to address the specific needs a teen presents. The medically supervised procedure will provide as quick a recovery and transition to the residential care program as possible but can last several days.

Is Drug Detox for Teens Done On An Inpatient or Outpatient Basis?

A safe teen drug detox requires medical supervision. Our dedicated team of medical experts carefully monitors teens to minimize the symptoms of withdrawal and ensure their safety. This procedure is best accomplished at our addiction treatment facility.

What Happens After Drug Detox?

Following their successful detox, your family member will transition to our highly successful teen rehab residential care program or intensive outpatient program to continue the recovery process. These treatment options ensure they gain the life skills needed for good mental health and long-term sobriety.

Will My Insurance Cover My Teen’s Stay at Clearfork Academy?

We accept a wide range of insurance plans, and our admissions counselors will help you determine your benefits coverage. We can speak with the insurance company about verification and pre-certification on your behalf.

Can Teens Have Any Medical Support During Drug Detox?

Yes. Medication-assisted therapy, or MAT, provides medicines that minimize the harmful and unpleasant physical and emotional symptoms of withdrawal.

Is Detox Only a First Step in Treating Teenagers' Addiction?

Yes. Detox is a first step, but it's a vitally important one. By clearing drugs or alcohol from your teen's system, a detox puts them in the best physical and mental place to begin the next phase of treatment and successfully recover in the long term.

How Will Treatment Affect My Teenager's School Attendance and Academic Performance?

Our residential facilities include an on-site learning center, and our highly skilled staff hold specific certifications recognized by the Texas Education Association. Your teenager can continue their education when they enter treatment.

Are Parents Involved in the Treatment Process?

Yes. We encourage parents and other family members to play an active part in the treatment process. Family days and sessions of family therapy are a fundamental part of the Clearfork Academy approach.
