Inpatient Alcohol/Chemical Dependency Detoxification Programs

Ascension Seton Shoal Creek offers adult inpatient detoxification programs for patients 18 years and older. Medical stabilization is the primary goal of our Adult Chemical Dependency Detoxification Inpatient Program, while the Dual Recovery Inpatient component is designed specifically for patients with a mental illness and a dependency.

Our team of experts, along with patients and their families, determines a treatment plan. The team includes an independent psychiatrist, a nurse, and a licensed social worker — all dedicated to patient health. After patients achieve stabilization we offer a variety of outpatient treatment programs to help them continue their healing. For more information on our detoxification programs, please call us at 512-324-2039 or contact us online.
